My Gosh!? Has it really been since mid July since I got around to posting news and pics of Mad? yikes. We have been, yet again, SO BUSY. Weddings, receptions, trips to Fiji ;), boating, camping, etc. etc. I'll post a couple sets of pics. These first ones are some fun Summer moments, playing at the park, with cousins etc.

4th of July in Oregon

We were anxious about taking mad on the plane but she did pretty well.. she made some friends by staring uncomfortably at them from our laps and playing peekaboo through the seats.. made for some good entertainment. We flew into Portland where we met up with gpa/gma and set out for the blues festival. We spent the rest of the trip in Seaside where we played on the beach, watched madelyn try to be in the parade, watched fireworks, went on a little hike, and mama and daddy got to have a blast from the past playing video games at the arcade. good stuff.

Our weekend in Lake Wenatchee..

Mad's first adventures at the lake, throwing rocks, canoeing -- very close to shore don't worry, playing with sticks and of course learning to snowboard on a piece of driftwood ;)

So far Madelyn's Summer days have been filled with exploration.. she loves having conversations with herself in her mirror, finding the wipes (grrr..), lounging on the new deck, and finding all sorts of sticks, pine cones, rock, etc at the park.

Where to begin..

Our month of April, the busiest yet, has included; Madelyn's 1st Birthday, Easter, the Mama's birthday, and a SURPRISE engagement! So exciting! Ryan and I wished Madelyn a happy birthday along with friends and family at our new home. Between parading around new toys and devouring a cupcake in a matter of seconds, we're both pretty sure Maddie had one of the best days ever! For Easter we spent time with Grandparents and GGrandparents hunting for animal crackers and multicolored plastic eggs. And for my birthday, Ryan and I took a (long postponed) trip to Winthrop to spend the day hiking and exploring. After finding the perfect picnic spot, looking out at the cascades, Ryan surprised me with a beautiful ring and asked me to be his bride! We're planning a destination wedding to ? and a reception in September. - pictures coming soon, i promise.
