Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to work we go...

Are two year olds supposed to be this strong? He was packing around a 1 litre bottle of water in one hand and a cordless drill with battery pack attached in the other.

Another baby who loves their thumb-y!

Fix! Fix!

Hendrik loves to fix things right now. This generally means playing with tools or trying to help his daddy make bullets. But seeing as we don't need bullets made every day we are trying to come up with fix-it type things for him to do. He helped Dwayne look for some tools in a big Rubbermaid bin in the porch early which was so exciting for him. He found a whistle I had for hiking and now has it in his crib for his naptime. There is getting to be longer and longer pauses between whistle blasts so I think sleep is near...

Mr. & Mrs. Turner!

Getting back into a routine

Well, it's been 3 months now since we had Riley and since Dwayne has been off on paternity leave. It's been GREAT! :) Now that the weather is warming up Dwayne has spent the last few afternoons out at Bell Rock working on our house. The windows are all in now and so today I think Dwayne was going to be working in on sealing up the spaces between the roof and tops of the walls - gables? Is that right? Anyway, it's really coming along. Very exciting. If you want to see a short video clip of the house from last week check out Micah's website.

Hendrik, Riley and I are getting used to doing our own thing for most of the day now too. Today Hendrik and Riley decided they would give their mommy a break and nap at the same time. I love these kids!

Riley having a cuddle with Aunty Lindsey

Riley had a few good snoozes on her Aunty Lindsey while she was here for the wedding. Here they are at the salon.

A few more pictures

Here we are at the hair salon! In case you wondering, no, Riley didn't get her hair done. :)

A few wedding pictures

These are "unofficial" photos that Dwayne took yesterday. We don't have too many on our camera but here are a few for now. These were taken before the ceremony at the back of our church. Only the official photographer took pictures during the ceremony but once we get some we'll add them to the post as well.

Guess who is teething already?

Hendrik's birthday

Hendrik had a great birthday. There were lots of family members in town and we also had some of his little friends over as well. Here is a photo of him on his new couch from Grandma and Grandpa, he just loves it! There is also a photo of his Clifford cake. We'll have to get some more photos from GrandBarry to post as well as we didn't get as many on our camera.

One of Hendrik's "forts"

Hendrik has recently discovered forts. He first got the idea crawling under the computer desk in our living room closet. He has since adopted the largest cupboard in the bathroom and we have made one under the table the bunny cages sit on in the living room. He tries to fit into any little corner or crawlspace and will even try to get into the doors on his toys!
