Shed project - (nate's comments)

A look back at the start...
Up go the walls!
Thanks Dad and Uncle Lafi!
Finishing day 1 with some sunshine :)
Zeke makes a guest appearance to supervise the cleanup.
Temporary roof.
Day 2: Dad and Uncle Lafi start the roof.
Rain helps things grow right?
One half almost done!
It wouldn't be a Allen project unless we worked until night!

The tarp goes up again to finish another day.

Found It!

We found the camera in the couch!  Unfortunately the batteries are both drained and they must recharge so no photo's yet.  

The camping trip was awesome!  We all had a good time.  I'm pretty sure Zeke liked it too, but he was pretty exhausted by the end just like Nate and I were.  I will post pictures of the camping trip once my sister sends the ones she took.   I got sick while camping too...  It isn't fun being sick when you have a baby as all you Mom's already know.  It's hard to be into it when your baby wants to play and you just want to sleep or are sneezing your head off.  it sucks.  I can't imagine what it will be like once he's walking!  

Zeke is talking a lot now!  It's fun trying to hold a conversation with him.  He'll start smiling, then talking and then he gets so excited that he starts smiling so big he can't contain himself and almost laughs!   Its really cute!  I love watching him develop and grow.

Just news

I lost my camera.  I'm super bummed...  I actually think it's probably lost in the car, but that is why there have been no updates lately.  No photo's to attach.  so sad. 

Things are moving right along with us.  I got my hair cut yesterday!  Yay!  Zeke has been getting more talkative and he's been eating me dry!  I can't believe how much this kid eats.  He must be growing.  Nate is working lots of overtime this week so not much has been done outside.  

I'm starting to train for a 10k that I intend on doing Sept. 7th.  We'll see if that actually ends up being a possibility.  If any of you girls out there want to join me, I need a training partner. It's the Iron Girl 10k (there is also a 5k).  It's mission is to encourage woman to live a healthy lifestyle and it's a girls only run so Nate can't do it.  I figured it would be fitting to do that as my first run after having Zeke.  

We are going camping this weekend at my Uncles Ranch!  I'm really excited.  I think Zeke will be the perfect camping baby.

Zeke's walk

video

Zeke went sun bathing with Aunt Jem, Aunt Cilicia and I today at Boulevard Park!  It was so much fun!  Zeke was so entertaining!  He was talking, smiling and walking all around.  He's changing so much!  I love how much he interacts now!  Crazy kid!

Backyard stuff today!

I can't believe I'm actually caught up to today!  As we speak, Nathan and Tino are in the back yard working on the gates for our back fence. It's raining so Tino brought a canopy and they added a tarp to create a large workspace. 



Zeke and I made Chocolate Chip Cookies for the guys!
Well, he slept and I baked...  I still think that means he helped. :)
They've completed 3 gate frames...  You can see one in place on the fence, one on the tree and they are still looking at the last one.  Things are coming together!
Zeke and I after we did the dishes!  We're so productive today! Maybe I'll update more as the day rolls on if there's more to report.  We'll see if productivity continues.
