Fun Weekend!

We had such a fun weekend this past week. The weather was beautiful so we took advantage of it. We went hiking on Saturday and biking on Sunday. Evan went along for all the fun and seemed to enjoy it. He seems to love the outdoors just like his daddy. An eagle scout in the making! Here's a few pictures of our fun.

Evan's New Stats

Evan had his 9 month checkup today and here are his new stats:
weight: 19lb 3 oz (30th percentile)
height: 29 in. (75th percentile)
head: 45 cm

He's still a long and lean boy. The doc said he looked perfect. He was very impressed that Evan didn't have any stranger anxiety with him. He was friendly and very cooperative with the doctor. Evan had to get a little finger stick to take a little blood to check for anemia (standard 9 month check) and he hardly cried at all! Go Evan!

Spring Break at Enchanted Rock

Okay, so none of us in this household really get spring break since we are no longer in school but we did actually have a little mini-spring break this year. Patrick's brother John and his family decided to take a trip to Fredericksburg so we thought we would join them. Patrick took a couple of days off of work and we spend Thursday and Friday in Fredericksburg, including Enchanted Rock. Of course, since it was spring break (and beautiful weather) every other family in Texas seemed to want to go to Enchanted Rock too. After waiting in line for at least 30 minutes we were turned away at 11 am when they closed the park on Thursday. Luckily they re-opened it at 1 pm and we were able to get in and join the other Webbs. It was an absolutely beautiful day! John cooked up some yummy fajitas for all of us and then Patrick, John and all the "big kids" headed out to hike up the rock. My sister-in-law Amy and I stayed at camp with the two babies (Evan and cousin Nathan, 7 months). The kids had a great time hiking up the rock. Even our little niece Lorah (2.5 years) enjoyed it, as she rode in the backpack carrier and napped part of the time.

The next day we drove over to LBJ State Park and walked around the Sauer-Beckmann Farm. This is a great outing for kids. The farm is set up just like people lived in the early 1900s. Staff members (in period garb) are there to tell you about life on the farm including cooking, livestock, blacksmithing, etc. They have several sheep, chickens, and a couple of cows on site. I think all the kids liked it, especially Lorah. Here are a few pictures from our fun-filled mini-spring break.

Evan rides his bike 2.5 miles

Well not exactly, he rode with me(Patrick). Evan has a trailer that I tow, and we rose around the neighborhood yesterday on my day off. He really seemed to enjoy it. This way he can help me with my MS150 training!

(btw anyone interested in donating to the MS Society to support the cause, let me know thanks!

Evan's first symphony

Tonight Evan got to experience "Holy, Holy, Holy" arranged by James Curnow and "Hoe-Down" from Rodeo by Aaron Copeland( you know, made famous by the commercials "beef, it's what's for dinner". He seemed to enjoy it, and then fell asleep on me after about 30 minutes.
We are very proud of our neighbor, James King, who plays second violin in the Williamson County Symphony Orcharstra.

It was a big week for Evan, he had a fever for about 36 hours but insisted he didn't need to go to the doctor:) he tougher it out by sleeping on mommy and daddy for two nights. It only got to 103 and was relatively short lived.
