It's been too long...

Well, life has been busy and again we've dropped off the blog scene. Time to at least put up a few fun pictures and offer a brief catch up on what we've been up too since the beginning of summer.

Here's a great pic of the three of us in August.

A blast at the pumpkin patch with Mom and Dad Tourville.

Halloween...Grayson was a dinosaur!

And I'm sure we'll have Christmas photos soon as well!

It felt a little bit like a trip on the S.S. Minnow...

I went on a float trip Tuesday! The journey was supposed to take two hours or so, and four hours later all members of the crew were shouting for dry land!

The route was 7.8 miles long along the Santiam and Willamette Rivers.

Five girls drifted on two tubes, a two-person kayak, and an inflatable surfboard/kayak.

They took along pretzels, Nutella, goldfish crackers, cookies, Capri-suns, and water.

They forgot sunscreen, a map, more paddles.

In the end, realizing that the tubes were just too slow, three people piled into the kayak and two onto the surfboard. One paddle to each craft, we waded through the water rather slowly due to the minimal current. After such a long trek we went to Best Little Roadhouse for some much needed nourishment! Mmmm...cheeseburger!

It was such a blast!

It was a farewell trip and dinner for the girls I have been leading in a small group the past several years. Great memories were made for sure!

Grayson's Dirty Mouth

Some types of African parrots eat clay. The clay acts as an antacid, neutralizing the acid and poison found in some of the foods they eat.

Anthropologists also believe that cave-babies ate dirt, exposing themselves to germs and bacteria in an effort to build up their immune system.

Grayson just does it 'cause it's fun.

Watermelon on the 4th of July!

The picture says it all, he likes his watermelon!

Does Grayson have a sister? Who's that cute little girl with the ponytail?

Dan makes these awesome hat-goggle things for Grayson out of business envelopes! How fun!

Guess who's almost one year old?

Yes, those are teeth. And yes, he was just sleeping on his face. No, we didn't hit him.

Photo Shoot

The following picture is of Grayson "enjoying" a recent photo shoot. The photo was taken by the amazing Suzannah Kruse. She was there when Grayson was born, and got some incredible shots of his first moments! Check out the following link to her website:
