We love blueberries!

We got to go blueberry picking this weekend out by Peavy, so yummy! Kaden was a big helper, he was in charge of quality control and therefore had to eat about every third berry that landed in the bucket. There is something almost magical about a dark blue fruit that doesn't stain!

Silver Creek Falls

We said goodbye to Robyn (Clements) Shepro and her little family, before their big move to Iowa, last week up at Silver Creek Falls. I was suprised on the way up there to hear Brad say that he had never been there before (even having grown up in Corvallis.) So it was exciting to have Brad & Kaden experiencing it for the first time. Kaden kept repeating "Whoa, big water!" I think I'd have to agree!

4th of July

We got all dressed up and joined in the downtown Corvallis 4th of July parade with some friends. We had a great caravan of decorated wagons going. It was about a million degrees (the hottest day of the year so far), but it was really fun.

Once it got dark we went to Mama Debbie's house to enjoy a firework display with Colin and Janessa put on by the daddos. The kiddos really enjoyed all the sparkly lights and displayed some pretty funny dance moves once the popping and crackling started.

Famous on the Fourth!

We were surprised with this the next day...
Wickett even got recognized at the Saturday market this weekend. A lady stopped Brad & asked him if Wickett was the puppy from the paper this week! Guess we need to start signing autographs & booking apprearances!!

Kaden's 2nd 2nd Birthday!

The weekend following Kaden actually turning 2 we had a big party at our park for all the family. We had grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, a great aunt & uncle (althought they are all pretty wonderful) and even second cousins & puppy dogs there to celebrate the event.

It was a bug theme, perfect for Kaden who loves the bugs! I'm no Martha Stewart so these little creations were my shining moment! And all by myself! (Mostly, thanks mom!)

Kaden's cousin Howard joined in the bug catching activities.

He got lots of fun presents from his guests

And had fun playing at the park...

He makes his mama & papa so happy!
