Alyssa showed me a few little things that she has for their new baby who is due in December. They have some things from when Katie was a baby but Kate was born in the spring and Evie is coming in the winter so the seasons are off a bit for hand-me-downs. A lot of things will work for the new baby as blankets and sweaters can be used to keep her warm.
The Camp Out
Took a couple of photos in the dark of the camping kids. Everybody was going to be toasty snuggled under quilts and blankets.
Everybody brought their best appetites to the table for pancakes with bananas.
Garrett made short work of a couple plate-fuls. Wyatt salutes the chef.
Outside, we played
The girls took over the sand box with various toys and rakes. I love the contrast of hair color in this picture and especially Katie-Kate's curls!
Boys playing with planes and an aircraft carrier on the deck.
Birthday gift redeemed
Logan told Hayden he'd take him out shooting for a birthday present. He provided the weaponry and the ammo. They took off well prepared to make a dent in the latter.
Holding down the fort
With most of the men out shootin' we were well protected in the backyard by these guys.
And of course we had Mad Max the Road Warrior on guard duty as well.
Garrett had already had a nice long nap when the other big kids needed a rest so he wandered around. He helped Aunty Lyssa supervise the girls at the tent door.
He played peek-a-boo with the other tent flap. It is so cute how little kids think they can't be seen behind screens.
He went over to see what Uncle Cam and Wyatt were up to. He even managed to recruit Grampa into watching him on the slide for awhile.
Rest before the Work
Har was on vacation so he spent a little bit of time in a lawn chair in the shade. But not for long. As soon as Logan and Hayden returned the construction of a step the full width of the deck was going to commence.
As soon as I get my photo storage issues remedied, I'll blog about a few of the other fun things that we did on our visit to Lacey-town.
