New Special Shoes


Marcus got another pair of "special shoes" the other day, and hopefully his last. This has been our lives for the last 2 1/2 years, so it will be strange when we won't need them anymore. We were going through an old box of shoes, when Marcus saw his first pair that he wore at just 3 months old. He was laughing while holding the small shoe and said, "Mommy, so cute."

Marcus has club foot, but he is doing great.

I have to apologize, I have been meaning to post this clip of the baby for some time now, however, it keeps getting pushed back beacuse as you can see, I have been so busy. The video isn't the best, it is really short so it would upload fast; but oh well, you get the point.

My little Lohena, lovingly reffered to as "baby brubber", and as which he responds to, has decided to start walking. Early last month he started standing up and taking a few steps here and there. He is practically running and crawling is no longer an option. Walking at 10 months may have been applauded as a first child, but now that I have two, that now means double the trouble. I often look at him bewildered as to where my baby has gone. Needless to say, I am both sad and excited for a new stage in baby brubber's life.

So, here you go mom, sorry it took so long for me to post!

Alana in Canada

This past Memorial weekend, will be without a doubt one of the many family trips we will remember; partially because it was our first official Heide Family Vacation, and because it was the first time I got to leave the country. Cameron surprised us all by taking us to Canada for the whole weekend, just us...and yes, we survived!

This was the first time, just us four vacationed; alone. It was so much fun and yet totally and completely exhausting! We took the Clipper up to Victoria B.C. Canada, and decided not to take a car...so just because I was on vacation didn't mean I vegged out.

I took so many pictures, too many for blogger probably, but I promise I will share some of the cool things we did. Like touring an old-style authentic castle, my hunt for a bakery, antique row, the cigar shop we just had to stop in, the beautiful waterfront and gorgeous Parliament building.

We stayed in a cute Chateau hotel in a 2 bedroom suite (good job Cameron!) not too far from the waterfront. But there was this street we continued to pass, and every time I thought of my little sister, Alana Yates.

This falls into the category of doing more and seeing more. I am truly thankful that we are able to make these memories. I would never have imagined being able to or being able to afford vacations like these a few months ago. However, after we were able to pay off our $13,000 car in 6 months, we are continuing to work on our mortgage, but we can seriously feel the financial freedom, allowing us to make trips like these possible. www.101financial.com/camkam

Thank you so much Cameron, we had so much fun!
Some serious memories were made, ones I will never forget!


Seattle Aquarium

Marcus and Makana both were too afraid to touch any of the "petting" creatures, but they had so much fun; Marcus asked the other day to go back! I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be at home with my children and to make special memories with them. Today, Marcus kissed me and said, "I soooo love you mommy!" I hugged him and thought I never want him to grow-up, what a fun and precious age we are in.
I am trying to enjoy every moment, because I know it won't last forever. I Love You Marcus!


Cruising with Silvia

A few weeks ago, my good friend, fellow BYUH Volleyball player and college roommate, Silvia, came to visit for the day. She currently works for the Princess Cruise line Ship. We took the kids on board and they had a blast; even Cameron left work to participate in the all-you-can-eat buffet, and ice cream bar, the huge game and kid rooms. We toured the vessel, filled with a casino, dance halls, theatres, marriage chapel and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Needless to say, the kids had a blast. Thank you aunty Silvia, we love you! I hadn't seen Sil in almost 5 years, so it was really nice to catch up. She was in my wedding line, and she is one of my best friends, like picking up where we left off. Love you! XOXO
