Cousin count = 6

Kaylin May Zerwas was born on Aug 21st. We made a brief visit before we headed on our vacation. Congrats to Mindi, Eric and Zaylee. I'm excited to spoil two more nieces!

Cousin count = 5.... but not for long!

Sunday, Aug 16th, Izabel Erin Handt was born!!! She weighed 8 lbs, 2 oz and has lots of dark hair. She is SO adorable. We visited today and the boys loved it - especially Mason. Before we left for the hospital, Mason told me, "when I see the baby, I will whisper like this... I will not yell loud Mommy" It was so cute. And then when he saw her, he was so cute with her. Kinda makes me want to have another baby - ok, maybe not.

This Friday, Mindi is scheduled for her C-section and cousin #6 will be here - another girl :)

We bought a new tent!

After much research, we bought a new tent. It's a Kelty Trail Dome 6 and we got it off I'm excited to put it to use later this month in West-Central MN. It will be so much nicer than the 3-person tent we've used for years - before we had kids.

One thing we learned when researching, a 4-person tent is really best for 2-3 people and a 6 person tent is ideal for 4 people. So, we went with a 6-person tent. We found the following illustration of how 6 people would sleep in a particular model - which cracks me up. Who would sleep like this?!

Mason being cute

Mana posted this quick video on his facebook status the other day - too cute! See all the fun stuff I miss while I'm working.
(BTW - I am not responsible for dressing him on "daddy daycare" days - hence the totally mismatched outfit.)

And in case you're interested, here is "Daddy Day Moment #1"
