good dog

So, I don't have a picture of Little Bubba walking yet, but I did manage to finally get a couple of him wrestling the dog. He loves to climb all over her and she's so good with him! Shasta just lets Little Bubba do pretty much anything to her (especially share his food!) and sometimes she'll even play back, but mostly she just lays around while he pushes her and lays on her..

Baby Steps...

Little Bubba walked today! He took 4 steps, and I think he was just as shocked as I was, it was really fun to watch! I got out the video camera...but he decided he just couldn't remember how, but, after I put it away (of course...) he walks even more! He goes farther each time he tries...I knew he would just all-of-a-sudden decide he was ready-he's been cruisin' for months now. I'll catch him in action soon with the camera, daddy was sad that he missed little bubba's first steps, but maybe he'll get an encore showing tonight!

In an effort to do something new and get out for a while, we went to Oktoberfest in Mt. Angel with some friends (thanks KEMM!). Bubba loved the food and enjoyed translating the craziness for us (he served a mission in Germany)! Little Bubba loved it too!

Mostly, little bubba just wanted to play with the balloon he got while we were at the mall earlier that day!
It was a lot like a farmers' market/fair but with a German theme...!

Labor Day camping trip

In keeping with family tradition...we took our usual sand dune camping trip for the holiday weekend, and as usual...little bubba loves to drive the quads! He loves to watch all the bikes, quads, sandrails, etc. drive by the camp all day.
We invited some friends to join us and experience camping in the sand. We were soooo excited that our friends from Cali came up too (P's in a Pod)! We hope you guys had fun (as much fun as you can have when you're pregnant!)!
Little Bubba mostly enjoyed spending the whole weekend with Grandpa! He also found his nose...which made for some interesting pictures...
My little John Wayne!
Bubba was totally excited about this OSU riding jersey we found...he HAD to have it!

He's already planning next year's camping trips and finding a good way to fit the car seat in the side-by-side quad for little bubba...we'll see what mommy has to say about that!

big zucchini

We may have missed a couple zucchinis that were growing in the garden... Any good zucchini ideas?!!!
