More Malcolm Pictures

 Katie loves her baby sling!

 He likes sleeping :)


 We are such a techy family :)


Small pleasures on a walk

 An outing with Malcolm! Katie is having to get used to riding in the back seat apart from Stephen. :(

 The dairy bar!

                                                             Up close and personal with Stephen's Purple Cow :)


 Returning things can be such a pain....but thankfully, this time it wasn't :)

 The New Family

 Happy new grandparents...they are so sweet!

 Malcolm has found his thumb!

 A lot of times he is found with only one eye cute.

 Little Man

 Anna and Abby getting dessert....babies are good excuses for celebrating with yummy food ;)


 Malcolm likes different positions

 I'm thrilled to be an Auntie again!

 Dinner one evening...zucchini fries and Italian hamburgers......yum! Those hamburgers were huge, too....probably close to 1/2 pound each!

 Now that he is a little over a week old, Malcolm is becoming much more alert!

 He's also smiling more....

 We ventured out yesterday to grocery shop! We stopped for lunch at a great Mexican restaurant.


 More ice cream sundaes! What can I say...we like our sundaes!

 "Wha--??" we're a little goofy.....

 Watchin' movies

 Grandmum-mum trying to console Malcolm

 Bath time this morning!

 He's also starting to figure out the difference between days and nights....daytime is when we are awake, nighttime is when we sleep :)

 *Girl time!*....painting toenails

 Tonight Mrs. Mouring was at home alone so she joined us for dinner at Chili's!

 Thanks, Stephen and Katie, for the treat!

We are also finding that Malcolm looks charming in yellow and orange....don't you think so? :D

We love our Little Man!

The Morton Maiden
We have the last part of Ike's and Meg's trip up North. Please continue to bear with me as I learn this new Blogger system....some of the pictures are dreadfully out of order!

Swimming was of course in the list of "things to do" :)

*nervous laugh before he jumps*


A rather pitiful splash compared to Ike's :)

Laughing at our family videos :)

Pop-pum is home from work!

so precious!

When Ike, Meg, the boys, and I got back to our house from visiting my grandparents, we were so excited to see that Daddy and Mumzie had started to put up our "new" yet old trampoline!

JuneBug (doing a somersalt in this picture)  loved the trampoline!

We have a great amount of sentimental attachment to this trampoline. Meg's, Kate's, and my great-grandparents bought this trampoline when we were much younger to put in front of their big picture window and watch us jump with our cousins. We loved spending time with our cousins on that trampoline, and we kids (along with our grandparents, uncles, and Daddy) came up with some pretty fun activities on there! When our grandparents sold the house, they gave it to our cousins as we were living in the city at that point of our lives and had no room for a trampoline. Our cousins now do not have the time to spend on the trampoline like they used to, so they passed the trampoline on to Daddy and Mumzie so the next generation of children could enjoy it!

You are never too old to enjoy a swing :)

Ouch. :D

As you can see, we all enjoy the trampoline!
Jumping with Peanut

A cicada was found!

Camfires are so much fun!

It looks like Ike is giddy after his doughnut!

The next morning the Vernon's got up early, we snuggled for a few minutes with JuneBug and Peanut, then they were off for home! Can't wait for the next time we get to see them all!
