Happy birthday, Grandpa!

Grandpa's Birthday

Grandpa Koehn & Mimi were in town for a visit. Audrey lovingly made a "cake" decorated with cinnamon and sugar sprinkles for Grandpa's birthday. The best part was when Audrey said "Grandpa eat it." And, like a good Grandpa, he did take a bite. Now, that's love.

Deep in the Heart of Texas

Dallas 07

Sloan & Piper headed to Dallas to catch up with some great friends. First, a visit with Margie, Noah & Micah. Thank you to Margie & Noah for lunch and to Micah for the kisses.

Then, off to the Kraus House to meet the boys, Zachary & Aaron, who were born in March. Heather figured out that we've known each other for 17 years! And, it was a bit surreal hanging out with our kids. After many hours of swapping stories about sleep, spitup and poop, Heather asked what we used to talk about before we had kids. Hell if I remember!

We finished off our trip with a lovely lunch with Margie. Good luck with commuting to Austin this year.

We wish these friends were closer so that we could to this more often. We're looking forward to the next time.

Cooper Lake

Camping 2007

We went on our first family camping trip. Audrey was so excited to sleep in a tent. She got dirty and played in the lake. Piper loved being outside all day. We had great company - Jill, Darren & Sai, Eriko & Miya, and Johan and Thom (his nephew from Belgium).

Oregon 2007

We just got back from a whirlwind trip to Oregon. We showed off Piper to the Eugene clan, who hadn't met her yet. Teddy had his 20 year high school reunion. And, we had some fun in Black Butte with Brent, Katherine, Lillian & Landry. The kids did great in the car and slept a lot during the 5+ hour drives.

Piper's so strong and just dying to get moving. She's so frustrated that she can't crawl yet, not that she's not trying. You'll see the results of her attempts in the pictures. She's fully recovered, by the way.
