Father's Day

For Father's day we bought tickets to a Miami Dolphins game while in Florida (this is Steven's NFL team). We bought our tickets in July. We didn't get great seats, but we were excited none the less. When the game day came, the weather was looking crazy with rain, thunder, and lightening expected. We had come a long way, so we were not going to miss this game. In the lobby of our hotel a very nice couple asked us if we were going to the game (they noticed us in our Dolphin garb). They had tickets but decided not to go due to the weather. They gave us their tickets and we ended up sitting very close to the action. The weather was still crazy. The game was delayed for about a half an hour because of lightening. It finally cleared up and was good enough to watch the game. The Dolphins lost the game, but it was still a great experience.

Daddy and Camden and watching the game.
Camden thought that this was a good place to take a nap at the game.


Camden was a shark for his first Halloween. We think he was the cutest shark we have ever seen.

We actually found this costume last year when I was pregnant with Camden. We both really liked the costume and wanted to buy it. We weren't sure if we were having a boy or a girl (though we had a gut feeling) so we held off and didn't buy it. We were happy to find it for sale again this year.

He is our vegetarian shark.

Florida Vacation

Our Florida Vacation. Too many pictures to blog. You can look at our website to see our full vacation. This trip was a great opportunity to see family who can't make it out to Seattle. It was also a chance to leave the autumn rain in Seattle to go somewhere sunny and warm, so we can't complain. We began our trip in Ft. Lauderdale visiting Steven's Granddaddy. We had fun visiting him and visiting the beaches. Now Camden has dipped his feet in the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean.

Next we went to Clearwater on the Gulf coast. We had a chance to see Steven's Grandma, Aunt and Uncle, and cousins. We also visited the beach and swam in the Gulf of Mexico. It was a great trip and it went by way too quickly.

My favorite picture of our family in Florida.

Baby Dedication

We had Camden dedicated at our Church on September 16th, 2007. For those of you who don't know what that is we are called up to the front of the church with Camden and are committing to raise Camden in a home committed to following Jesus. The pastor prays for us and the congregation is committing to holding us accountable to that. We had a good group of friends and family sitting in the congregation.

This was a special day for our family.

The quilting committee at our church made Camden a quilt in honor of this special day. They stitched his verse on the quilt. You can see Camden sitting on his quilt in the last picture.

Playtime with Daddy

Steven is excited Camden is finally old enough to be roughed up. They have a great time playing together. Camden looks forward to his Daddy coming home every day. Mommy is happy to have Daddy home too.

Oregon Coast

For our fifth anniversary Steven and I decided to do something as a family. Liz and Ty decided to come along and get away for a fun weekend. We drove down to the Oregon coast and rented a house just a couple of blocks from the beach. It was a great weekend. We had great weather and had a great time at the beach. We even had time to tour the Tillamook Cheese factory which we highly recommend.

It was a great Anniversary.


Ok, So I have been not so great at blogging. I am way behind on our life. I am going to quickly catch you up and start fresh from here. Life with a baby is so busy and I will do my best to keep up with it blogging. Stay tuned...
