Brayden's Soccer

Brayden started his first year of soccer and is having so much fun! Because he began before he was officially 4 he is by far the smallest kid on the team. These photos tell it all. Check out how large the jersey is on his little body. This is one of my favorite memories as a kid and I am excited he gets to play.

Summer Camping

We took two camping trips this year: One with the Curtis's and one with the Stevens. The weekend with the Curtis family it was supposed to rain and didn't and with the Stevens it wasn't supposed to and hailed. One of the joys of camping is the unpredictability I guess! Here are some pictures from our experience.

Before and after the hail
Logan and Brayden were painting some rocks they found at the creek and got paint on them so they had to take a bath. A true outdoors bathing experience. They also helped cook breakfast, got to go a fish hatchery and watch the fish jump like crazy at the food, and had a blast with all their cousins / family.

As If 2 Weren't Enough

It is by no design of my own that I will be surrounded by boys and testosterone for the rest of my life. I grew up in a family of 4 boys and no sisters and now Camille and I will have our 3rd boy on February 29th. My poor Mother and now my poor wife...... I know that they both love their boys and wouldn't trade them for anything.

So Brayden has decided to help us name this little boy. Here is the list so far of names he has come up with:

Wilson- He thought of this all on his own and we don't know any Wilson's.

Connor- This is a family favorite.

Rock- He chose this with a little help from my brother Nathan.

Erik, Derek, and Heiric- After Brayden had spent time with a friend named Eric he decided to think of all rhyming names of Eric.

PingPongTwo- This is my personal favorite and has a nice ring to it. One long word that says it all!

So keep tuned and we will announce the official name of the baby on a later date.
