Owen and Tatzu

Tatzu is our bearded dragon. Around noon he gets really active and as you can see Owen loves watching him. I fear the day that Owen learns how to open his cage(it's not hard). Honestly Mike will probable love to think of some other genius idea for Tatzu's cage to make it Owen friendly. Owen is sitting up now, it's very cute!

China Beach

Mike and Brent were able to get Wednesday afternoon off work so we could all spend the rest of the day at China Beach. The weather was perfect! Not very windy and sunny. The waves were great for learners like me.

Alaskan Cruise Visitors

Well I got a surprising phone call from my Uncle Ken on Thursday. He said that he is on an Alaskan Cruise ship and they will be coming into Victoria Friday night. I was really excited to see them since it has been 3 years since the last time.
We had fun walking downtown around the harbor. This brass cowgirl would be a statue until you would give her money. Ken got a wink and put at gun point for a dollar I think.
From Left to Right. Ryan(Ken and Lori's Nephew), Mike, Owen (in the stroller), Uncle Ken, Aunt Lori and there son Mike.
It's not a visit in Victoria without some fish and chips, so we went to Fish on Fifth and had a good time. I'm really glad they called. We had a great time catching up.

We have just started giving Owen baby food! He's not 6 months just yet but i can't wait anymore. He has done so good, and I'm praying that he will get full enough to sleep more through the night.

This face was after the first few force feeds. It's didn't take long before he opened his mouth for more. Now I have to prepare myself for the sticky diapers. Oh that reminds me. The other day while we were driving home i was not feeling well with a head ache and then i started feeling nausea's. I started explaining to Suzy how I would throw up when i smell "stale air" when i was pregnant. Suzy pulls over because i seriously was going to loose it. Suzy says" ...yeah i think it smells like a stinky diaper." IT WAS! We weren't smelling any ordinary stale air. It was tainted by baby poop! Thankfully i did not throw up. I changed his bum and started feeling a lot better.

Fun at Home

Thursday nights they have a Market on Sidney's main street. We were loving all the cute jewelery but we decided to make our own. Thankfully the beads at Michaels were on sale

The next favourite thing to do was "Sing Star". It's a Singing Game on our PS2. We had lots of fun playing it at Brent and Tracey's house as well.
Annie and Lucy were so sweet taking care of Owen. They were a great help!
In the mornings Owen usually wakes up very happy and plays in his playpen. Lucy loved to come into our room and play with him before I woke up.

Sunday Nap

Fever Bug

Owen got his shots and had a fever after having them. I was given these awesome stickers that can show you what temperature your baby is at. Although this picture is pretty self explanatory.

Butchart Garden

Suzy and the girls went to Butchart Gardens and had a beautiful time. It was a very hot day. It smelled so wonderful! They saw a play and were able to be princesses in the play from the kingdom of Utah. The most beautiful flowers they'd ever seen besides Dave's rose garden at home.
