Camping 2009

we got to go camping at Bonny Crossing Earlier this week. It has been awhile since we have been able to go. Cooper really enjoyed himself.

There are lots of pictures so enjoy!!

I just love this face!
He was trying to open the cooler. I love that he looks like he got caught.
I think this is so Cool. Chris wrote his name backwards with his flashlight while his mom took the picture. I love it.

This is Coopers hand print on Chris' arm.

: the last pictures may contain material that is not for the easily grossed out. Viewer discretion is advised!

I just think this is gross but he kept doing it. Notice how black his feet are.

coming soon

there has been a lot going on lately,
we went to Lincoln City over the weekend for the blessing of Scott and Angela's baby.(chris' brother and girlfriend) Jerusha, Nate and the kids were able to come up from Utah for the event.
We were able to go to Enchanted Forest on Tuesday and play with the kids. If you have never been I highly recommend it.
I will have pictures soon I haven't got them uploaded yet and I am waiting to get some from Kimberly.

about our apartment: They removed the fan and the dehumidifier on Thursday so we have a quiet living room again. unfortunately they haven't done anything else there is still no siding and we now have some cracks forming in the walls by the cabinets. the plan is to fix the outside first before they do anything inside and hopfully they will be able to just do patches instead of tearing the kitchen apart but who knows what and when anything will be done!

Here is the exciting story of our joyous time EARLY Tuesday MORNING

First of all I just want you to note the TIME yes that is AM!!! at this point we had already been awake for about 20 min.

This is the reason for the RUDE awakening. I heard this awful noise that sounding like a grinding clicking noise, so Chris got up to check to see if it was the AC unit in our window NO it was
WATER running down from the unit above us in to our kitchen. the Noise the outlet shorting out

Notice the water running OUT of the outlet it is coming down the wall by the cabinets
Yes that is soap suds. the guy above us had his laundry and dish soap under the sink where the Pipe burst his apartment had about 2 in of water in it by the end
the door way to the washer and dryer
the vent above the stove

The Lovely drying feature
we get to play home to them for a few days

they had to remove the siding because the water ran out there also
if it wasn't for the drain out side our door it would have come in to our house

Notice the lovely DRY ROT

Chris didn't even have to try to get the pencil in
It was such a fabulous way to start the day.... NOT!!!!

it took us about 30 min just to get in contact with the managers of our apartments. In the mean time I had called the management company and they were working on getting someone out so by the time the on site managers got up there was someone on the way but because the outlet had shorted out we had to turn of the power to our whole house so that was fun. Chris was smart enough to jump in the shower at 3 am since we had to turn the water off the whole building.

So what do I do during all this TAKE PICTURES Chris asked me what I was doing and I told him this was so worth blogging about. He rolled his eyes at me:)

So as of right now we know nothing about what they are going to do to fix the problem. We have to let everything dry out for a day or two. I am hoping they are nice enough to give us a vacant apartment here if they have to gut the kitchen so we will see.
