I promised you some pictures, so here you go! =)

We had a wonderful, friend-filled Canada Day weekend this year. We spent the Saturday at my parents’ house (they were gone) with friends Amy and Colin and Dave and Karen (and their daughter, Anneka). It was nice to just chill outside by the pool and watch a movie in the evening. Colin took some amazing pictures that day. Oh, expensive digital SLR camera, soon I will be able to afford you…(I hope!)

I love these pictures of Asher.

We had some family time on Sunday of the long weekend, and then on Monday, went to Brampton to visit Rob’s childhood friend Bob, his girlfriend, Dawn, and their daughter, Victoria. We took the kids to Chingouacousy Park, had a barbeque in the evening, and then took the kids out for a walk to the playground. It was a nice family day.

Both Judah and Asher started swimming lessons at the beginning of July. Judah has taken them before, but we want to build his confidence, because he was quite afraid of the water before the lessons started this time around. Asher enjoys the water most days, but sometimes gets hungry during lessons and then doesn’t want to have anything to do with it!

He’s not smiling in these pictures, but he really does seem to enjoy the lessons!

This may gross you out, but we thought it was hilarious, so I’m going to share it anyway. A few weeks ago, Rob went into Judah’s room to check on him before we went to bed, as he usually does. He noticed that Judah was sweating (which is common for him), and moved him over a little bit. Well, he had been sweating a LOT…check out this profile that he left. ALL sweat.

Isn’t that bizarre?

At the beginning of July, Julie came over to my mom’s place with Micah so that we could swim and just hang out. Micah and Judah were splashing away in the kiddie pool, and got each other all wound up. Micah was screeching loudly, but then he got upset when he heard Judah doing the same thing, so we had to take him out of the pool. Silly guys!

Now for some random pictures…

my big sweetie is growing up so quickly!

Asher is such a smiley guy. We feel so blessed to see how far he has come since birth!
He loves to sit in his Bumbo chair.
