A Quick Update, with Photos :)

I've been avoiding blogging since I've gotten so far behind. Both of my boys are napping right now, so I decided to do a quick catch up based on the photos on my phone :)

We tried some droissants (for the record, delish)

Rory finally realized rolling means he can get new places

Granny (Dalan's Mom) came to visit, so we put on our tourist shoes!

Ferry to Bainbridge Island

We went swimming, a lot

I took an obligatory Super Moon photo from my car (don't worry, I parked it first!)

The next week Meg and Steve came to visit, so we went sightseeing again

We visited Remlinger Farms (posted previously thanks to Blog Press for iPhone)

Rory's hair is started to get out of control

We took a Sunday walk through the Bellevue Botanical Gardens

Rory started growing out of even more of his clothes

I entered a photo contest.

The winners were supposed to be on display at an art gallery, turns out they just showed all entries on digital picture frames and never choose a winner. (lame)

We met up with my Grandparents, Aunt, and Cousin at Point Defiance Zoo

In other news:
  • I've joined a volunteer Marketing committee for the Cougar Mountain Zoo. I've been doing some graphic design stuff for them. That seems to be where most of my blogging time has gone.
  • We got family photos taken (hopefully I'll post the pictures next week).
  • Rory had his 9-month appointment, he is 85th for height, 55th for weight, and 50th for head.
AND we are moving. We kind of knew this was coming for awhile, but we were planning on staying pretty close to where we are now. While looking for an affordable place, we stumbled across a house for rent that is basically perfect. The only problem is, Dalan will have a 40 minute and a 60 minute (he is now working in 2 plants) commute. We've decided that the plus of having a yard, large garage, and living in a small farm town of less than 5,000 people is totally worth it though!
