Pool Party

It’s summer so we’ve basically been living in the pool last few weeks. Dayla’s not swimming or dunking her head but she likes blowing bubbles, hanging out in the shallow end, and jumping into our arms. Today we had some friends over for a relaxing BBQ around the pool. Here are a few pictures.

Vote for Dayla

This is a shameless (and I mean shameless) call for support.
The picture below taken at the Whittier Farmer’s Market is one of my all time favorites of Dayla and I have it hanging up on my wall at work.
I decided to enter it in a local photo contest in the “People” category. The final winner is selected by a panel of judges but there is also a people’s choice vote. You are those people.
Please vote for Dayla.

Hume Lake Vacation

We had another great trip up in Hume Lake this year with the Sundins, Cavers, Colliers, and Woodwards. Biking, Canoeing, Settlers Playing, Disc Golf, and lots of food were all on the agenda.
The most eventful part of the trip was when Dayla figured out she could hoist herself out of her crib, open the door of our room, and walk down the hall to find us in the game room. It was surprising to say the least. Thankfully she didn’t wander out into the woods.

Wanna cracker?

Dayla wasn’t sure what to think of the canoe but she was a trooper

4th of July parade of Hume locals

The littlest parade entrant

There were many more people in the parade than actually watching it so we got lots of candy thrown at us. We let Dayla collect as much as she wanted then quietly disposed of it when she wasn’t paying attention.

Hold hands when crossing the street

My favorite picture from the whole trip. James love his cousin Dayla and especially likes riding in the bike trailer so he can put his arm around her.

Notice the matching dresses made by Grandma

During meal times, Violet had a special spot in the middle of the table

I made this picture extra big so you could see Ginette at the bottom of this giant Sequoia.
