Which office character are you?

Which Office Character Are You?

You are Pam. You are sweet and likable, but your shyness makes it hard for you to express yourself sometimes. Regardless, you are always there for your friends and will usually come out of your shell to help anyone.

Blog Stalking

So I have been trying to make it to bed earlier and tonight looked like the night I was going to be there by 11. Well it is now 12:50 in the morning and I am still up. I was headed there about an hour ago until Nathan wanted to show me his latest movie for his business and then all the sudden the laptop was free. What do I do with a free laptop? Blog stalk of course and I must say tonight I am disappointed, not many updates. Summer is just too busy to keep us creepy stalkers updated on your lives I guess. Well now I really am off to bed.

Solid Foods

Aside from family reunions,over the past month Parker has started eating solids. He loves all fruits, mashed potatoes, and he tolerates rice cereal. While Nathan and I are eating our dinner or lunch, if Parker can con us into feeding him some of our fruit then we are there for half an hour feeding him all of our fruit and scrambling to cut more so that he will stop crying. He likes to eat in his high chair while we have our dinner, it makes him feel like a big boy. And while we make breakfast he will crawl into the kitchen, usually to the base of Nathan's feet and just stare until he picks him up. Maybe Parker could be a gerber baby.

Now, a month later we rarely see this face when introducing more foods. He usually gets excited and wants more.

For 8 days we have been camping. You might wonder what we can do for 8 days while up in the mountains. Well not a lot and that makes camping all the better. This year was a big bear year so a couple of night we were woken up by the bears and had to chase them away. We saw a mom and her cubs and a few other bears. It was very exciting. I walked 5 miles almost every day with Nathan's aunt, with Parker in his stroller for his nap. Every morning we wake up and make camp toast which is toasted over hot coals, so yummy! Every afternoon we would go to the river to cool off and clean off the dirt. Then we would come home at dusk and start a fire .Nathan played his usual Frisbee golf game and biked 6 miles up hill to the river a few times. It was a great trip and it is always good to come home. The babies can't help but play in the dirt. Cecelia is more mobile so she got to play in the dirt. Parker will still let you hold him for a few more weeks-luckily. Next year this will be Parker.

Parker loved the river. He would splash and splash and cry when he wanted back in. He didn't even care that the water was so cold!!

Also one of the best things about camping is relaxing!! We all were able to take our shares of naps. Parker slept good at night too, he slept for 10 hour straight some nights.
We also like to sit around the camp fire and talk. This is our three generation pose of Nathan, Jim and Parker.
Nathan asked me to marry him here three years ago at sunset. The view is beautiful.
On our last day we went for a couple of walks to see the sights.
