Night at the Park


Yesterday was our church "Night at the Park".  The band Tim and I are in, Eternal Noise, plays along with another group from our church.  There's free food, games for the kiddos, volleyball and lots of fun!  We had one scheduled for earlier this year, but it was rained out.  However, last night we had perfect 80 degree weather.  Gotta love the northwest!

Where's Madelyn?  She's in there somewhere =)

And thanks to Tom and Izzy for watching Madelyn all day so Tim and I could help setup/practice!

Sounders FC

This past Saturday, Tim and I along with some of our friends, went to the Seattle Sounders soccer game.  It was a lot of fun!!  It's way different than a Mariners game.  Pretty loud and moves at a much faster pace than baseball.  I would definitely love to go again!

My friend and co-worker, Heather, was gracious enough to stay home with Madelyn and the doggies. 
Here are some pics from Madelyn's fun day...

 Happy MJ =)

Madelyn: 5 Months



You are five months old today!

Here are some of your stats for the month:

-At the last doctor's appt., about a month ago, you weighed 12 1/2 lbs.  We're guessing you weigh about 13 1/2 lbs now.

-You are wearing size 1 diapers and you're wearing mostly 3 and 3-6 months clothes. You can still fit into some of your newborn and 0-3 pj's.

-You can hold your head up so well baby girl!

-You "talk" all.the.time.  You still love to squeal and have a huge smile we you see mom and dad.

-You went on your first road trip to Chelan this past weekend.  You did really well in the car and loved looking out the window.

-You also took your first dip in the swimming pool.  The lake was way too cold so we voted to try you in the pool instead.

-You are currently eating around 8 oz. every 4 hours.  We also started you on rice cereal.  At first you weren't so sure about it, but now you eat it up!  I think we'll start pureed veggies soon because you are watching everything we put in our mouth. 

-You sleep between 11-12 hours at night.  Going to bed at about 8pm and waking up between 7am-8am in the morning.

-Our sweet babysitter, Lynn, said you rolled over from tummy to back the other day.  Mommy and daddy have yet to see it, but we know you're trying your best!

-You've started petting your puppies.  They sit there very nicely and let you do it.  When you're done, they give you lots of kisses.

Love you baby girl.

This past week our little fam (pups included) went over the Cascades to Lake Chelan.  A friend of ours was gracious enough to let us use his condo.  It was an absolutely beautiful drive!  The doggies LOVE the car so they were in heaven.  Madelyn did really in the car for several hours as well. 

This is us on the way there.  We stopped in Wenatchee at Sonic...of course =).  It was time for MJ to eat and the puppies needed a potty/water break.

The view from the condo was amazing!  You could see the mountains and Lake Chelan.  Sadie and Daisy enjoyed sitting on the deck soaking in some sun.

It was nice to just sit and relax with Madelyn and the doggies.
