Our Sunriver vacation

Jim, Henry and I had a wonderful 4 days in Sunriver! We had such a good time just being together with no schedules and lots of time to play. We went on long bike rides (to get donuts!), hiked down into the lava caves nearby, visited Bend and got to see so much of the beauty of the place including a lot of deer, squirrels, horses, bunnies and geese. Here are some pics of our time:
Henry is ready to be there! (is that a goofy pic or what?)
Fighting traffic on the way

These are pics of our backyard! WOW!

Here's me enjoying a yummy treat after our looong bike ride
No donuts for Henry. He gets graham crackers.
Henry loooved getting away from us whenever he could. Walk, walk, walk in the other direction.
It was very cold in the mornings (30 degrees!), so Henry got bundled!
Jim and Henry in the lava caves which were really cool...except we had to carry Henry the whole mile in and mile out (when I say "we" I really mean Jim...who rocks) :)
It was great to see Henry take in all his surroundings. There was so much to see and hear and he had fun pointing at everything.
On a walk in the back of the house.

My serious guys...
Being silly!
I just love my family!

No purpose for this blog entry except to post a couple pics from today as we're packing up for Sunriver. Henry has been so funny following me all around the house as I pack this and that. He seems to think it's a fun game. Here's how he plays: Mom makes a pile. Henry destroys the pile. Mom packs some toys in a bin. Henry opens the bin and throws the toys all over the room. You get the picture. FUN! :)

This is a pic of him following me. It turned around real fast and snapped it so you could feel the action.

Henry lo-o-oves his bike helmet. I had it in one of my "piles" and he begged me to put it on him. He literally walked around the house for about 20 minutes with it on. He cracks me up!

See you next week, Bloggers!

14 Months!

Henry turns 14 months old today! When do we stop counting in months? Hmm. To celebrate the coming of fall (yah!), we played in the leaves that have already fallen in our yard yesterday. Henry lo-o-o-ves to crunch the leaves and would clap for himself after a big crunching. :) What a nut. Couldn't resist some pictures!

Point taken. Put down camera. Play with son. :)

My Morning by Henry

I was walking around the kitchen...

and busted my lip!

Now I look so sad! I'm not letting mom ice it though.

The End

Time to wake up!

One of my favorite things is when Henry is sleeping so hard during his nap, that I have to go in and wake him up. Don't think he's always this sweet when I wake him up...sometimes he screams at me, but most of the time he makes me chuckle. I was lucky the other day when I thought to bring the camera in with me.


Gasp - you startled me!

Do I get to play now, Mama?

Awh shucks. I love this kiddo.

Morning coffee

These pictures are especially dedicated to my dear mother, who cannot live without her coffee. :)

Mmmm...just what I needed to wake up.
More, please!

Lip-smacking delicious!

Oi. A bit of grounds there at the end.

Can you drink coffee with a straw?
