Oregon Coast 2009

Last week we went to the Oregon coast with Zach's family. We had such a fun time. Being new parents, Zach and I never thought twice about taking a 3month old on a 12 hour road trip. Luckily Keller is so mellow that he did just fine. You never know what to expect weather wise on the coast, but we got pretty lucky. We only had one really windy day. The best thing about the OC is that it is a vacation where you don't HAVE to do anything. We went to the beach, explored the caves and tide pools, played lots of games at night, and went shopping (my favorite part of course, the outlets are awesome, but there were especially good sales while we were there!)
Here are a few pictures from the trip...

The whole reason why we go to Newport... the candy!

The coldest day at the beach... can't you tell he's lovin it :)

All in all I would say that we had a fun family vacation... besides gaining 5 pounds from the cheese cake, cheese burgers, and ice cream. I guess it is back to real life now. After a few days of my cooking, those extra 5 pounds on Zach and I should melt right off!


Swimmin' time

We spent the end of June back in Boise and we had a blast. The Glynns have an above ground pool we fondly call "the intex". It was so nice on those HOT days to be able to jump into the water. It turns out that Keller loved the pool just as much as his parents! He swam 3 or 4 of the days that we were there. Zach even took him under water a few times... which of course freaked me out at first. Luckily we had an expert there. Levi's girlfriend Holly used to teach the "Mommy and Me" classes at the YMCA. Keller had such a fun time. He was kicking and splashing and loved every minute of it. I think we may have the next Michael Phelps on our hands. Check out some of the highlights.

Hold your breath!

...another note...

Keller got his first walker while we were back in Boise.

His feet don't touch the ground, but he sure loves sitting up like a big boy!! and Zach likes the toys!
