We had to wait for over an hour for John's check-up this past week, which could have gone very badly, but John was a champ!  He was perfectly content hanging out in the waiting room with all the other children.  Thank goodness!  Anyway, John got one shot and is growing steadily.  He weighs 23 lb, 2.5 oz and is 33.25 inches long.  (That's about between the 10th and 25th percentile and the 75th percentile respectively.)  Healthy and happy!
I don't know if you can tell, but John is wearing a vintage 70s t-shirt that reads, "Hi I'm Jay."  Yes, it was Jay's shirt - possibly gifted on his first birthday from Aunt Jan or Gramma Dickens.  Pretty awesome!  Also, John's cheeks are full of crackers here.

The Seelingers came over last Saturday for a laid-back afternoon/evening around our fire pit.  We feasted on chili (not a hit with the younger set) and s'mores (quite a hit with the younger set).  Welcome, Fall!  We're glad you're here!

On a Boat

We found a few more pictures on our camera of one of our boat rides at Lake Toxaway.

Lake Toxaway

I finally got around to uploading pictures from our trip to Lake Toxaway last weekend with the Veatches and the Faulkners...
This is my favorite picture from the weekend.  Gorgeous background, hilarious kid.
John and Alice looking at a giant waterfall.
Here's the waterfall and my new shades.  Am I cool enough for these?  Not sure.
Kira on the dock.
Anne and Alice watching Scruff be goofy.
My little cutie.

Scruff, Jay, and the back of John's head.
Jen and Jason paddling through the fog like Lewis and Clark.
One of Kira's funny faces.  Rival for favorite picture.
My children really don't look very much alike, do they?  What will #3 look like?
