Some outdoor fun!

The weather has finally broken here, and it has been so warm....we have really enjoyed being able to play outside! The day we shot this video was warm, but exceptionally windy (that is the background noise you hear!) Colin almost took a pretty decent kick in the head from Cameron, because while Daddy was spinning Cameron he couldn't see where Colin was....and Colin just happened to wander pretty close to Cameron's spinning feet! Cameron practically got his arms pulled out of socket, and had a hard time staying on his feet afterward....but they sure enjoyed themselves!

Before we were able to get outdoors however, the boys (and I do mean Shane included) developed a "super fun" game where they get to climb on something high (usually a block, toy chest, or a laundry basket) and jump off--either onto the guest mattress in our computer room, as in this case, or into a pile of blankets and pillows! This has quickly surpassed playing with every other toy in the house and has officially become the funnest thing ever.

Our Blog Begins

Hi everyone!

Well, after much prodding from my sister-in-law Aimee, we have been convinced to start a blog for OUR Merritt family--so here we go! This will hopefully be a really good way for those of you who are farther away to keep up with the events of our family! This is a shot from Easter of all five of us after church. Hope that you all enjoy this, and I will do my best to keep it updated in my "free" time!!

Here is my Grandma Franzi, being a pistol after Easter dinner! She is so awesome--87 years old and still acts young!

Shane with Cameron, who finally passed out after LOTS of playtime!

We all had a really wonderful day, it is great having my family so close!
