Mountains! Ocean! .amazing.

Aleida is 8 months old! She is so smiley, determined, strong and squirmy. She really dislikes when she cannot do something. She works really hard at moving around quickly. She isn't a fan of baby toys - Owen's things are super appealing. She's a lot of fun. She also is teething right now. There is a nice little bite on my shoulder that looks like it is from a blackfly. No no. It is an Aleida bite. Yikes. She now has three teeth and the other top front tooth will hopefully emerge soon. Poor girl.

Aleida: a couple weeks old

and here she is again, 8 months later.

We arrived back to our home on Thursday night. It was a long trip home, as Owen continually reminded us. We're all pretty tired out, but that is the consequence of taking a fabulous vacation to a city chocked full of friends! We had a great time being with dear people we don't see often, and we also explored the area. We had a fancy double stroller during our stay and that made getting around possible. I'll let the photos tell you more about our time.

Steph and Dan got married! Woo, what a lovely day.

We drove into Washington with Katie and Joel to visit Mount Baker.

We (along with Mel and Tyler) took a ferry to Bowen Island.

owen's self made videos

Sometimes owen wakes up and is really quiet. He goes on the computer and makes videos. Here are a couple of them.

Ry, Charlie and Erin had to learn Ray LaMontaine's "You're the best thing" for Jordan and Alex's wedding. Owen since has sung the song. (The lyrics he is singing are: You are the best thing; You're the best thing Baby)

He likes to play with different effects on the videos.
