Evelyn's 1st Hiking Trip

We took Evelyn hiking this last weekend for the first time to Beacon Rock. We had a group of friends come visit us and watch Reuben's play and then we all went hiking the next day. It was such a beautiful day to go out as a family and with our friends. Reuben and I plan to make this summer about exploring the Gorge and all it's wonderful hiking trails as a family. Evelyn LOVED it! We love our backpack for Evelyn. It is easy to use and works well on both Reuben and me (a great consignment store find)!


February Fun!!!

We have been a busy family this month. Reuben was in another play called "The Boor". It was one of 5, one act, plays. He played a male shovanist pig, very much out of his real character. He did a marvolous job!

Evelyn is growing up so fast. Seems like everyday she looks bigger. She runs about the house, enjoys her books, and LOVES her Teddy. She talks up a storm already. Her vocabulary consists of Mommy, Daddy, Cat, Ball, This (pointing at something and wanting to know what it is), and many other non English words to point out something like Duck, Horse, Dall, etc. She also mimics sounds. Evelyn's favorite past times are dancing and singing. As soon as music comes on, she is a moving.

As for me, I have been trying to catch up on some reading in my spare time and also getting crafty. Since spring is near, I have a lot I would like to get my hands on. I love this time of the year!

Much LOVE LOVES to you! - the Betts
