Beth Spackman and I (& Aiden) had just taken a little cruise in the kayaks, but Aiden was a little too tempted to leap in the water so we had to cut it short. We had to get the picture after because he was also not so happy in the lide jacket.
The rocks by the lake Aiden found very tasty.

Logan's Pass -- from a moving vehicle. We had no time to spare and stop and enjoy the view; we had a border crossing to make, and memorably at 11:02 pm the gate was shut and the guard had no sympathy for us at all. We ended up going through Shelby as there were no vacancies any where along the extra three hours added to the trip home. I was the lucky one though; the Spackman's had another two hours after they dropped me off in Lethbridge. I know it wasn't ideal, but I sure enjoyed my time with them.

Ethan one day old
Ethan first week home
Ethan's first birthday
Ethan's 2nd birthday
Ethan is three years old. I can't believe it. Three years ago today I was having some pretty intense contractions about a minute and a half apart. They wore me out -- so much so that I was falling asleep during the few seconds of relief that I had. At 3:16 p.m. Ethan Jack Shields came into our lives in the flesh. We are so happy to have him in our family. He is very excited to be three and has been practicing holding up three fingers. His Spiderman birthday party is tomorrow, but he has already enjoyed phone calls, a personal DVD card, and presents! This morning he got to open his presents from Paw Paw & G'ma Terri -- he loved it! Happy birthday to my 'Sweet Pea.' I love you so much.

Ethan on top of the barricade (the band-aid is just cosmetic)
In the middle of our trip to beautiful Alberta weather has been a little crazy. We had snow, sun, then more snow and the past few days have really felt like spring. We had been in Calgary with Christina and her kids for the week and been having fun playing with cousins. Ethan really enjoyed the zoo the other day, but unfortunately I forgot my camera (which I found out later has dead batteries) so we have no pictures to show for it. We had a delicious dinner at Aunt Val's on Sunday -- We got to see Ben, Caroline, Camden and Grandma Frodsham too (poor Uncle Orin was at church all evening). Aunt Val took some great pictures that she is going to send to me. There are getting to be so many cousins -- it is so fun. Kristy picked us up yesterday and drove us back down to Grandma and Grandpa Brewerton's house for this week. Ethan and Sam had so much fun watching Return of the Jedi together. They talked about it the whole way down and are in fact watching it together as I type. Aiden is now quite an accomplished mover. He crawls, pulls up on furniture and just figured out how to climb up stairs yesterday. I am a little worried at his progress because he has now sense of danger. The twins and Aiden remain barricaded at all times for fear of going up stairs or falling down the stairs in the basement. Kristy has her hands full with to movers -- I don't know how she does it; I have a hard time with one.
