Battle Bluffs

Here are a few pictures from Nadine and mine latest hike. We hiked up Battle Bluffs which is near Red Lake (as far as I can remember) and the lake you can see in the pictures is Kamloops Lake. We actually managed to stay on the path most of the time which is pretty amazing for us so there was no getting lost and wondering if we were going to make it back before dark (though we did pack a flashlight...and bear spray...just to be safe). The best part of going for a hike is when you reach the top, it's always so peaceful and quiet. We always sit down to watch the world below and the sun set before we head back to the car.

Pure Boredom

I'm sitting in Starbucks drinking my iced tall half sweet passion tea lemonade (second one of the day, soooo good) editing pictures. Of course after about twenty minutes of editing said pictures I start to get bored. Lucky you guys, now you get to listen to me ramble on and on and on and on and....well...you get the point. So if at this point you don't like to read my ramblings then skip to the bottom, you may just get to see a very cute picture of a very cute boy... hows that for a bribe eh! I have been noticing that all my posts have lost the stories that go along with the pictures. I am always in hurry to get the pictures on and don't take the time to chat. So here goes a little chit chat!
This picture I am showing you today is of the one and only Mr. Ryker. I took it a couple months ago at the school while we were waiting for Markus to get out. He always picks flowers and brings them to you to blow. I started look after the boys when Ryker was 9 months old, today was his 17 month birthday. It has been fun watching him grow and learn news things. He finally says my name when I walk through the door in the morning which is very exciting. Tammy would always say "who is here Ryker" and he would go "Dada" then "Mama" then "Bubba", at this point we would all give up on him getting it right. Pretty soon I'm sure he will be telling big stories like his big brother (when I say big stories I mean big, the more interest you show the bigger the story seems to get) and talking my ear off. I have the greatest job I have decided, I spent the day today having a water fight with Markus while Ryker slept and then we hung out at the park for a while. There is no complaining about a day in the sunshine!!
Lastly and completely off topic, here is a quote I found that made me giggle just a little "The brain is a wonderful organ, it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get to the office" - Robert Frost
