My Dad is quite the runner and I just have to brag a little bit... He has been running races all summer and has been doing really well. There is a series called the Extera (I'm not sure if that's how it's spelled) It is made up of multiple races throughout the summer. Then they take the top people from each age group for the Nationals. The Nationals were over the weekend in Bend and my Dad had qualified so he went and raced. He came in #1 in his age group!!! So, now he is going to Hawaii in December for the World race. I think my brother will be running it with him, so that's pretty exciting!!! I tried to take some photos from one of his races to put on here, but they wouldn't let me...

While we were sitting and watching the sheep, this little chipmunk was watching us. He kept chattering at us and running around the base of the tree.
As I mentioned before it was pretty warm so we didn't want to take too much time for pictures, and it was fairly steep so it was hard to get the camera set up to take one of all three of us. Here are a couple that we were able to get. I think the one of Clint and Dane is pretty cute.
While taking this one, I couldn't get Dane to look at me... He was way too intrigued by the sheep!

Before I got home from work today, Dane and Clint were doing a little bonding. Dane decided he wanted to try on his Dad's hat and Clint took a few pics.

Here are a couple of the Snipe that we were able to get!
After we came back Clint and Perry worked on the shed and I was able to get out and mow the lawn. Dane was pretty fussy once we got back... He really isn't feeling that great. Poor guy. Hopefully, he bounces back and feels better soon. Have a great week everyone!

Anytime Dane is on the floor, you can bet that Bones isn't too far away. Recently, Dane is really interested in Bones and is always trying to wiggle closer to grab any part of Bones that he can. Luckily Bones is really easy-going and seems not to mind.
We try to keep this to a minimum, but once in a while Bones just has to sneak in a little kiss!
This is the seat that Dane enjoyed when he was really little. Well, it's supposed to be good until they are 40 lbs... As they get older it rocks and they can use it as a little chair... Well, thank goodness it has a "seat-belt" cause Dane would end up on his head if he wasn't buckled in!!!
Tomorrow I think we are going to attempt to get up and chase some birds... It is supposed to be nice weather. Then we are going to come back and work on the shed. Should be a good day and if we get some good pictures I'll share them! Take care and we hope everyone is having a great weekend! (Nana, Dane can't wait to see you either!!!)

This is when we were starting to move. You can't really tell in this picture, but it rained on and off all day. Made the whole moving experience even more fun!!!

September 1st (Monday) was opening day of bird season. It started raining on Sunday and rained all day and night. We woke up Monday morning and there was no sign of it letting up. After staring at one another for a while and making a half-hearted attempt at packing, we looked at one another and said "Sacajawea traipsed many miles with a baby strapped to her back... We can surely figure out a way to go bird hunting today!" So, we found a rain jacket that was big enough to fit over Dane and the front pack... and off we went. It was raining the entire time, so we only took one picture, but we had fun, and Dane was a trooper. First, Clint had Dane and I got to shoot. I got two snipe and we traded. I took Dane and Clint got to shoot. He was able to get 4 and then we called it a day.
Dane also got to eat his first "solids" a couple days ago. Since we are quasi-hippy these days we decided to go with the hippy baby food of choice, avocado. He loved it. I took a little video of his first try and besides the gag reflex (which he has already overcome) he did really well. He is so eager that we have to hold down his arms so he doesn't grab the spoon from us. The video is downloading on photobucket and once it gets done I'll put it on the blog.
Dane also wanted to send props to his cousin Porter! Looks like they both have the "roll over" down and if I get time I'll try to put on the video of Dane working his magic... Watch out world cause he is going to be moving soon!
