Here is the team right before the championship game. One of the guys was warming up in the truck...wimp :)
There we are in action. I fell a billion times, it was so slippery.

Carson was a trooper, we were there from 6ish to about 10:30.

Carson + mud = Happiest kid alive
The San Juan County Fair was the week of August 1oth-ish. There was a mud volleyball tournament on Wednesday night. Danny was suppose to play but he had to work late so I ended up playing on a team of cowboys. It was me, Justin (our cowboy neighbor) Trevor, Chase, Zack, and a chick named Till. They were not joking, there was a lot of mud. Everyone on the team was so fun. Guys are meant to play mud volleyball, they were all over the place. The tournament was so fun. We played several games and never lost. We went all the way to the champion and took it!! We won a tee shirt, case of pop, and a bag of candy. It was so fun!!!!!!!!!

A wonderful trip to the beach!

Here is the house that Danny rented in Oregon for a wonderful week at the beach for me and him. We just had the top part, which was more than enough room. We were in Oregon for some weddings and a baptism and Danny boy took me off for a late mother's day trip to Cannon Beach.
We were there Monday-Thursday alone and we decided to invite the family up for the last night. Sam, Molly, Lilly, and Carson stayed the night. It was so fun to have Carson at the beach with us.

Carson boy loved the sand, and running from the waves. He is almost 18 months big
Here we are...the love birds. I am 15 weeks pregnant and showing. It really was sooooo fun to go away with Danny for a few days. Turns out we still like each other :)

We did so much while we were at the beach. We had a day at the spa and it was AMAZING. I got a facial, body scrub, foot massage, and we had an hour long couples massage.
The next day we went on a horse back ride . Danny had a dream of riding horses, nice and slow, on the beach. They gave poor Danny the fattest horse I have ever seen. He was struggling to sit on that thing. It was so fun, but it turns out those horses don't go slow. As soon as they got in the hard sand those stinking horses took off. This was the 2nd time in Danny's life he had been on a horse, and I am pregnant (although I certified on the paper work that I wasn't) so we were hurting. It was so funny, but we loved it.
We also went to the Tillamook cheese factory, a light house, we watched candy being made, and we ate at a lot of resturants (our favorite was Pig n' Pancake)

18 Month Check-up

That is Carson's very special smile :)

Carson is 18-months-old....I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! He had his 18 month check up and it was a little sad.


Height: 2 ft. 7 in.----15%

He is a shrimp. We thought he would be tall, but it looks like we have a Millward on our hands. He might be our "Stewie" and our other boys will be huge

Weight: 25 lbs.----40%

He doesn't look chubby to us, but he is obviously heavier than he is tall. He has weighed 25 lbs. since he was 6 months old :)

He is healthy as a horse though.


-Has all of his teeth except his 6 year molars
-He says, "Mom, Dad, Go, thank you, please" (mom and dad are the only words that any one can understand)
-HE LOVES "Cars" starting this week he watchs it between 2-6 times a day. He will sit for a while and watch, and then run around for a bit. He just likes to have it on at all times. I didn't really want him to like any movies, but I do love my new found morning showers while he watches.
-He is still blonde as can be
-He is an excellent dancer
-He sleeps from about 7pm-7am and takes a 2-3 hour nap....that is my favorite thing
-He loves nursery, we snuck him in early (around 16 months)

He is so much fun. He has his stinky moments, but usually he is very sweet. He loves being around other kids. He starts getting all bugged out if he is home too much in the day....where does he get that? He is a daddy's boy and is always his big helper. I can't help but love this boy.
He was 18 months this wed. and I was 17 weeks pregnant
