Desert BBQ

Last Saturday, we went out to the desert to BBQ. While it was great fun, we also had a tough time. You see, Drake doesn't walk, he doesn't crawl, he scoots. So he was all over the rocky, stickery desert floor, dragging his legs around. He got so dirty and was into everything. He loved the fire, and wanted to make me get my exercise by constantly jumping out of my chair to drag him away from the fire. So I stuck him in a chair of his own. Didn't last for long, he got out of it on his own, and has the face to prove it! Luckily he only cried for a little bit. We finally stuck the boys in the back of Eli's truck and let them use it for a play pen. This is Jack and Ethan's girlfriend Lauren. (I know-how did Ethan get a girl that hot? ;) just kidding Ethan!)
This is a before and after of Gigi holding Drake. First one, when we got there, the second after he got out of his camping chair on his own.
And here's Buster in his favorite spot, right next to the fire, in the dirt, yes, eating a rock.

Tawnya's baby bump is growing!

Gwenny and Daddy. She also had a tough time. First when I was teaching her how to squat, she didn't quite get the concept and peed on her pants. (Why on earth didn't I just take them off?) Then she touched the lantern and burned her knuckle. And I know it sounds like we just had problem after problem, but it really was a lot of fun!

Ryan~ I hope you don't think I went queer, because I was looking through blogs. But it is so random how many people you can find through this thing. My wife was just showing me some other people that I might know and I clicked on yours. You have to slow down with the kids man and give me a chance to catch up. Megz and I have our first on the way. She will be born in Feb. Hope everything is well. Chris Cannon
