Farewell Frontier

We are coming home from Frontier earlier than expected. We have been dealing with an outbreak of the swine flu here and it hasn't quite been contained (for more info see the YL website). Since I am 6 weeks pregnant, we feel the wisest thing for our family is to come home. We will miss Frontier, but are confident in our decision. As far as camp... please pray families who are staying don't get sick as well as the campers coming. We pray this flu doesn't take away from kids hearing the gospel and having the best week of their lives.

St. Elmo's

I think Caleb was expecting a furry red guy when we told him we were going to St. Elmo's, but really it is a cool little ghost town near camp. The coolest part is the chipmunks they let you feed them right out of your hand. They crawled all over us and Caleb had fun trying to bop them on the head (and suceeding more than once). My camera died shortly after we got there, but I got a few pictures.

Wild Wild West

A couple of nights ago was the camp night where we all dress like we're from the 1800's. I think the cowboy hat suits little man well.

Frontier Ranch

We are in Colorado at gorgeous Frontier Ranch. The mountains are beautiful, the camp is fun, and we are having a great time so far. Chad is a head leader here for a month, which basically means he is making sure camp runs smoothly for the 400-500 campers that will be here each week. While he is busy running around doing important stuff, Caleb and I get to play.

Guess What?????

Caleb is gonna be a big brother! We just found out about a week ago that we are expecting our second child sometime in February. We are very excited! I always wanted my babies close together, so here we go... We told all of our family by putting this t-shirt on Caleb and letting them figure it out.

Caleb is one year old! I can't believe my baby is one! The year has flown by and been so much fun. I never knew I could laugh or love so much until Caleb came into our lives.
We had a low key celebration on Friday where we went to Chick-fil-A to eat nuggets and ice cream. And then all of Caleb's friends came over on Saturday for a party...which was super fun. We had baby pools, watermelon, presents, and of course cake. Caleb played his little heart out and had a great time. Thanks for everyone who came to celebrate with us. More pics to come...

Beach Trip

I finally filled all the disk space on my computer with thousands of Caleb pictures and so it has taken me a while to post these of our last beach trip. Caleb had fun playing in the ocean, he is not one bit scared of the water. He is much harder to photograph these days, now that he is constantly on the move and this is why I only have pictures of him from behind. Good thing his tush is cute!
