The “Is It Food” Test

Gavin has started getting a little more particular about what he eats – for the longest time he ate absolutely EVERYTHING – so he taste tests new things. Today’s new food was avocado. I don’t care for avocado, so Gavin hadn’t had a chance to try it. At the recommendation of my physician/friend Dr. Priscilla, I got him an avocado. He played with it - checking the texture - for a while, and then sucked on it a bit…and then he bit into it. Ewww. Just the thought kinda grosses me out – I hate the texture of those things, but he chewed it up happily. Weird. (I know - I’m in the minority of the general population, but in Scrivnerburg avocado-haters are the majority.) Well, whatever gives him the fat and calories he needs, I guess…

An object in motion…

…tends to stay in motion, and that is absolutely true of Gavin. If he’s not sleeping, he’s in motion. I thought this cell phone shot was sorta cool because I almost managed panning with my cell phone. I was using an app called ActionSnap because I was trying to stop his motion. That didn’t work, but I think I will try more panning with my phone using the native camera app – it’s shutter is slower than ActionSnap.


We have our 3 grandchildren staying with us this week, so we have 10 kids here! I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures of the whole crew! I’ll get to that over the next few days.

Nathan’s new wheels

Nathan’s birthday is this coming week, and he didn’t have a bike, so we took him to Missoula to get a new bike. This is the one he chose, and apparently is awesomecoolamazingfantastic because it has shock absorbers. Good to know.

Fridays are for Life Group

Ken and I host a small Bible Study-type group at our house on Friday afternoons. Our church calls these small groups Life Groups. We have a great bunch of people, and it seems to be growing all the time. It’s a time that we look forward to each week. This little lady is just one of the reasons – this is Salia (Suh-LEE-ya), our granddaughter. She was having a great time at Life Group.
Here’s a bonus shot that I took during Life Group.

My Mom is lookin’ good!

I just had to show off how great my mom looks. I always enjoy spending time with her – I’m so glad she moved here! I can’t believe it’s been 5 years!

(Of course, the peek at my handsome husband is a bonus.) Smile

My poor baby…

This poor little man can’t catch a break this year. Well, I guess he did – he started the year with a broken leg - soon followed by croup, then a stomach bug, RSV, and now double ear infections. I hope he’s building up immunities! This snap was taken while we were waiting for our appointment at the doctor’s office.

He’s going to be completely well soon, and stay that way!

Loving spring weather

It’s Spring Break and we have wonderful weather, so the kids spent almost the whole day outside. Gavin didn’t stay out all day, but he sure enjoyed every minute he was out there. He loves standing at the fence almost as much as he loves his dryer.

Andrew was identifying all the “stuff” on the ground – grass, leaves, sticks, dirt, trash…
Today was a banner day for Gavin – it was the first time he allowed a full tub bath without any crying or panicking since his broken leg. Yay for a clean baby!

It’s April!

I’ve had my little blogging break, and I’m ready to start posting pictures again. I can’t believe it’s already April!

We had an absolutely wonderful Easter. You can read about that on my family blog.
