Labor Day 2011: Idaho Sand Dunes

Gettin' ready for the first ride:
Hayden was so excited he almost left without shoes. And Brian was even more excited that he didn't even notice.
My boys!

This is what Hayden looked like by the end of the night and we had only been there for about 4 hours. YIKES!

Thank goodness for Trailers.
(If you look close enough, you can see sand in his butt crack).
hehehe :)

Brian and Hayden on the New Banshee:
Her first voyage.
Hayden calls it the "Blue one" OR the "Loud one"

At the Lake:

Uncle Dave and Hayden

Shirsten and Hayden

Hayden thinks he's a big kid. Do you see him in the middle?

The group did a little knee boarding at the lake:
But we didn't have a boat...

The girls watched, manned the cameras, and held Jocelyn:

What a life!

August-September Update

Quick Post of what the Quigley's have been up to:

Lots of Lounging and PJ Wearing:
I have found that it is easier to stay in our pj's for most of the day, especially when you have a spit-uppy baby. So a couple days of the week, we relax.

We take care of Jocelyn:
Hayden loves to 1) Put her binky in when she cries, 2) Go right-up to her face and say, "Hi, Pretty Girl", and 3) Entertain/Teach her new things:
(The other day Hayden and I were singing Primary Songs and Hayden turned to Jocelyn and said, "it's your turn to sing". He just wants her to do all the fun things he does.)

Welcomed a New Quigley:

Cousin Sam:
Samuel Linford Quigley
Born 9/7/11 at 4:36 pm
9 lbs. 12 oz, 21.5 inches

After being a week late and being induced, Megan was in labor for 22 hours!!

Megan said, "Sam is doing great, eating, sleeping, and crying like a champ! He has a cute little birthmark on his forehead (the standard Linford marking) and a dimple on his left cheek!"

Congratulations Blake and Megan!

Now Hayden and Jocelyn have 2 cousins: Charlize and Sam (1 from each side of the family)

Playing with Friends:
Hayden and Jarom on the Carousel at Trafalga.

Jocelyn enjoying the new scenery and sunshine:

Hayden's Newest, Most FAVORITE arcade Game:
He calls the pins, "bats" because they look like baseball bats.
And when we correct him and say, "They are called pins." He says, "Oh! Right! Pins!", while nodding his head. :)
Our Professional Bowler:

Playing a little SKEE BALL:

Playing Hard, While Daddy's Away:
McDonald's for dinner.
-Hayden gets to play
-Jocelyn gets to sleep
-And Mom doesn't have to cook!
WIN, double WIN, WIN situation.

-Oh! And there's DESSERT!
