Catching Up...

I got really behind, so forgive my forever long post!

Hank loves nothing more than to go to the "man-store" (Home Depot) with his dad. Here they are picking out wood for our garden spot.

High-fiveing their own awesomeness!

About two weeks ago, Grandpa and Grandma treated the family to a few days in Seaside, Oregon. We had so much fun! We started by going to the zoo: Hank and Haylee staring down the polar bear.

All the grandkids, plus some more!

The Zoo boasted a train, so yes faithful readers, Hank got his first ride on a train. I dont think he stopped talking about it for a week later!

Afterwards, we got to meet the conductor. I'm sure Hank thinks that is the best job in the world!

Seaside socked in...but still lovely

Hank adopted one of Chloe's dolls. He made sure she was fed, and tucked her into Grandma's sweatpants for warmth. It was pretty cute-until he started making out with the doll and CPS came to take her away.

Go fly a kite!

Memorial Day Campout: Well, kindof. It was a campout until about midnight when Hank was relegated back to his own bed, and then it just became Shane and I sleeping on the floor.

Here he is doing his fake snoring.

Reverence is more than just quietly sitting.

A few years back, Shane watched as a nurse put an IV in my hand. When she left, he turned to me and I quote, "I would rather take a bullet in my brain then have an IV. A bullet in my brain." He should have mentioned that to his appendix.

At last, Hollywood gets it right!

Wow! You've been busy doing some fun stuff (and not so fun in Shane's case of surgery, yikes!)! I love your seaside pictures and that Hank got to ride on a train.....what a thrill!

By the way baby Sara has never been the same since "the incident"

I can't wait to see Hank in real life!! The pictures are great, but I miss that boy. I love the picture of Hank and Megan on the train.

We are also so grateful that Shane was brave enough to undergo the dreaded IV experience. We need him around for a lot longer.

You guys are great.

Hank's hair is growing so fast =) It looks like lots of fun. Shane I hope you have fully recovered and I'm glad you survived the IV!!
