So, I meant to update with this last week.... and then didn't. I don't have a good excuse, I'm just lazy, I guess! This was Alexa's first "injury", at least the first time that she hurt herself and it left a mark. (In case you can't tell, there's a bruise right above her eye). She's going to be walking really soon, I think. She's been trying to stand without holding onto anything, which is how she got this bruise.
Still no news on the job front, but if all goes as planned, we will be in our house tomorrow! Wish us luck!

Swing Swing

Today we took Alexa to a nearby park, and she had a ball. We were pretty sure she'd love the swing, and she certainly did! In this picture she's actually laughing hysterically.
It's hard to get a good picture while trying to get her to smile at the camera.... hopefully I'll get better at that.
Mike was excited to take her on the slide.
Also, we also took her on the spinny thing... it's not a merry-go-round, it's just a flat thing that has handles and you sit on it and spin. I have no idea what they're called, but they're a lot of fun. We also took her on the teeter-totter, see-saw, whatever you prefer to call it. She like them both as well, but as I was participating, I couldn't take pictures.

Labor Day Weekend

So first I have to apologize for the lack of posting, I just haven't felt like it since there have been no updates in either the job search (although Mike does have an interview tomorrow) or in the house department....

For Labor Day the whole Bevan's family always goes camping on the coast for the weekend. The first evening Mike, Alexa and I were all ahead of the pack so we stopped by our first beach of the weekend. Alexa loved it even though it was freezing cold and she was wrapped up in a blanket the whole time.

No pictures of the second beach, but this is the beach we hit up on our way back to Eugene. Mike lost his phone on this beach, but luckily someone found it and turned it in to a nearby campground and the rangers called a bunch of people on Mike's phone trying to get in contact with him. When we got it back it didn't even look like it had been in the sand.
And last but not least, Alexa enjoys smushing her face into the side of the pack n play, which makes for some very fun faces.
