Nathanael has just started on solid foods and we are easing into it a little slowly. Nathanael thinks eating is great fun but he is still a bit barfy. Ethan asked me if he could feed Nathanael and so I handed him the spoon. Ethan is soooo gentle with his brother it warms my heart.
I love the intense look Nathanael is giving Ethan.
I think Nathanael wanted more.
Happy Big brother
Happy Little brother

Andrew got back earlier this from being gone 7 days to hike the West Coast Trail. He arrived back having not shaved the entire time he was gone and the kids were surprised to see his new "face" (me too since I'm not a super big fan of facial hair).
Seeing Daddy for the first time.
I love Hannah look as she inspects his face.
She wasn't too weird-ed out to keep from hugging him.
Ethan wanted him to shave right away.
Hugs to welcome daddy back.
Happy to have him home (even in this condition).
I love you Andrew and I am glad you are home safely in one piece.

My grandma finally got a chance to meet baby Charlotte at a recent family dinner.
GG and Charlotte
Gamma and Nathanael
Teresa and Hannah
My sweet and cute Ethan
I love how I caught both Ben playing with Nathanael (he calls him Baby Nate) as well as Kevin showing Hannah howto hold Charlotte.
Amanda and Chris.
As the only 2 girl cousins I see matching pink outfits in there future. Here is a picture I found of the 2 of them getting to know one another. :D
Hannah loves to get in a good cuddle and enjoys her role as oldest most responsible babysitter.
Even Nathanael enjoys a little bonding with Charlotte.

This past weekend was super busy (in a good way). We spent it across the boarder in Sumas WA at our churches summer camp Cantonese Camp. We go every year for family camp but this was our families first time going to Cantonese camp. I have decided that it was amazing, so well organized, everyone seemed to be having a great time, and the kids activities were great. Now I don't speak one single word of Cantonese outside of what my 2 year old nephew has taught me, so the adult sessions were out of the question. Never-the-less we had a good time as a family and Andrew had a good time speaking with the youth.
Isn't it pretty.
Hannah and Ethan with the kids.
I think they were going on a walk.
Emily made the kids balloon things.
I spent a majority of the weekend watching the kids run away from me to go do things by themselves.
Off by themselves.
Ethan wandering around.
Nathanael sleeping. He wasn't feeling that great.
This is a little boy that the kids played with all weekend. His name is also Nathanael and Ethan thought this was great and called him "big boy Nathanael".
Hannah and Ethan went canoeing with Andrew.
Nathanael happily bounced in his jumper.
Coming back for a quick visit.
Ethan eating the biggest ice cream sandwich ever.
Nathanael snuggling with Andrew.
Saturday morning Hannah, Ethan, Nathanael and I zipped down to watch the Glen Days parade.
Getting ready for the parade (and the candy)
Nathanael and my Auntie Linda (you can see my Uncle Mark in behind). I love them!!
The parade started with fire trucks.
I loved all the decorated bikes.
You gotta love the Minions.
Looking forward to another great weekend coming up too!
