We Love Black Butte

Grant took his first trip to our family's home in Black Butte when he was just 3 weeks old. He went with Mommy, Gammy, Grammy-Grammy, and Cecelia. We had fun hanging out in the sun, going to the pool, going on walks, and visiting Aunt Alaire and Uncle Ivar.

Hanging out in Tiller

One of Paul's favorite places to go as a kid (and even now) was his grandparent's home in Tiller. He grew up hunting, fishing, snorkeling, and swimming in the river there. Some day Grant will follow in his Daddy's footsteps and love Tiller just as much. We had a great time introducing Grant to his Great Grandpa and Grandma and all the aunts and cousins who were there.

Camping at Loon Lake

Gammy, Auntie Allison, Auntie Katelyn, and Mommy took Grant on his first camping trip to Loon Lake. Although we planned on a week of warm weather, laying out on the beach, and swimming, we spent most of the time bundled up in front of the fire. We did get a few hours out on the beach, but there was no swimming for us. We ran out of wood for our fire and ended up leaving three days early. Grant did such a good job sleeping in the tent. We had a great time despite the cold.

Fourth of July

Baby's first Fourth of July was in Roseburg at the Dorsey's house (Paul's aunt and uncle). Haden and Paul have been best friends and cousins all their lives. It was so much fun to let Grant meet Haden's daughter Gracie, who is 6 months old. We had a great time playing volleyball and badmitten, eating yummy food, and enjoying Jake's awesome fireworks show.

Summer Swimming

This summer Grant got his first taste of swimming in the pool. His first time was at Aunt Heather and Uncle Eric's. He SCREAMED!!! I think it was a little too cold for him. As the summer goes on, the water is getting warmer and he likes it more and more. We will have to get him into swimming lessons soon!

Father's Day

I know this is a very belated post, but I had to document Paul's first father's day! My parents came for the weekend, so we both got to hang out with our dads. We had a great time eating, roping, and hanging out at Grandpa and Grandma Caswell's.

Coffee Time

Grant loves going to Gammy and Poppop's coffee shop in Florence(actually it's Gammy who loves when he comes so she can show him off!). And all the people at the coffee shop love to see him!

I love Poppop!

Splish Splash!

The first time we gave Grant a bath he didn't like it too much. We realized that the big tub didn't keep him warm enough with so little water. We have since moved to bathing in the kitchen sink, and he likes it much better. So bathtime is not such an ordeal now.

This isn't so bad...
Nevermind...Yes it is!
It wouldn't rotate...sorry...
I'm still not happy about this!
That's more like it :)
This is what my hair does after each bath!
