Happy Birthday to Grandpa!!

We love you!

Caroline's 1st trip to the movies!

Over Thanksgiving weekend, we really wanted to see the latest Harry Potter, but we wanted to see it all together - the only way to do that was to bring Caroline along, suction canister, oxygen tank and all! We were nervous cause we've never done that before, but we thought we'd give it a try...

First, we went out to grab some sushi - you can just see Caroline's head in the back left corner: )

We then went to a Muvico in TO; it was a great movie theater. This was the theater to take her to for the first movie trip. Wide rows, big seats, cushy chairs.

The idea was to lay her down on an empty seat next to us and put the armrest up. That lasted for a few minutes, but because the seat was your typical tilty movie seat, it kept tilting back and forth as she rolled around on it and shifted her weight. Too dangerous! So we just took turns holding her.

She was ok, but she was super wiggly and needed to be suctioned a few times - distracting. But she had a lot of fun, especially during the loud, scary parts with Voldemort's deep voice talking (she loves deep notes and flashing lights) - when those parts happened, she got very still, her mouth was shaped like an O, and she looked very happy. (Sadly no pictures of that)

This is us leaving the show. She can't believe what just happened!

Very exciting night!

A cute movie-going family.

A Sleepy Halloween

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Halloween was on a Sunday this year, and by the time we got home from church, Caroline (and Bryce...and I...) were tired. Still, these are sweet pictures of the little Halloween bug.

Utah Trip - Lagoon

Sunday, November 7, 2010

This summer, we went up to UT and stayed with Bryce's family for a few days. The day trip to Lagoon was one of the highlights.

Caroline and B strolling through Lagoon.

As you can see, we had to get this pale little girl in the shade quickly!

Caro got to have her own customized inter-tube seat, which she actually really enjoyed - she even took a decent nap in it.

Caroline's cousin Melody was especially taken with Caro. They will be good buddies.

It was special for us to see how accepting and loving Caroline's cousins were with her. We wish she could get up and play like they do, but we know she will someday. In the meantime, she gets to be the center of attention!

Back at the Loveland home, Caroline enjoyed a private drums concert by her Aunt Amanda. Caro loves percussion-type sounds - clapping, stomping, snapping, etc, so we were sure she'd love drums.

And she did...

Business Partners

A few Saturdays ago, B had some work to do, and he decided to bring in some help.

It's about time she does some work around here.

B is happy that he's defying child labor laws.

Rock Climbing Date

A few months ago, Bryce took me on a rock climbing date. It was the first time I'd ever attempted to climb something like this. It looked pretty easy at first, so I was smiling (this was the only smiling picture)...

But I started to get a little nervous -

I stayed at the bottom for a little while trying to figure out where to go -

But I eventually went up -

And up -

And up -

I touched the top! It was really high, and I was vscared.

Bryce has gone rock climbing before, so he went up quickly!

He went on a harder section of the wall, so he was proud of himself and I was proud too!

Bryce has braces!

It's hard to see them in this picture, but Bryce decided to have braces put on a couple months ago. They were painful at first, but he's pretty much used to them now (except for when the ortho tightens them of course!). He's expected to have them on for about 2 years.

Caroline and Uncle Jack

Sunday, October 31, 2010

We spent conference weekend with my family in LA. Caro and Uncle Jack had a good time relaxin' together.

Ahhh, watching conference on a cushy air mattress - we're awake we swear!

What?! We're awake!

Well maybe I'm a little snoozy...

I love you too, Uncle Jack.

Bryce's 30th

Well, it's time to pay the price for my blog procrastination. Catch up will be just great - meh.

One of the events I missed was Bryce's 30th birthday! It was a great day. I surprised him with dinner at his favorite - Lucille's BBQ. Once we got in the parking lot, I pulled out a dozen balloons and made him carry them through the parking lot and all the way through the restaurant...

Such a good sport!

Once we got there, I had a bunch of our friends there ready to surprise him. He sat down and he got to wear a...

CROWN! The birthday king!

Enjoying his favorite drink.

Bryce's fantasy meal - tons of meat!

We had such a fun time with our friends -

After dinner, we went back to a friend's house and had a fun game night. Following a WILD night of Wacky Six and Catch Phrase, we pulled out a pinata for Bryce and he beat it to a pulp, which entertained the whole group! Bryce saved the head of the pinata for a souvenir (that's what that random picture below is). Happy Birthday to Bryce!
