Caleb Barthel Barnard!

We are so proud to introduce Caleb Barthel Barnard! He was born on October 27, 2009 at 9:01pm in Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, Scotland. He weighed 7lbs. 5 oz. and was 20 inches long. Here are a couple of pictures of proud mom and dad just minutes after his birth. We are all enjoying him so much here at home. Dan loves showering him with kisses and hugs, and of course, we do too!

Here is the boy as he is!

This video is a bit long, but it comes complete with motorcyles, front flips, and of course nose picking. Ha! Enjoy :)

Dan's imagination is really developing. He still loves cars, trucks, motorcycles....anything with a motor! We caught Daddy and Dan's most recent favorite game. Dan loves it! Who would have thought that two toy swords could be so many things :)

Dan loves the camera. This video catches a glimpse of his motorcycle adventures, but he MUST stop to say "CHEESE!"

Run away tractor...

A few weeks ago, the youth from our church went on a Saturday trip to "Landmark". It is a smaller adventure park for kids. It has trails, towers, water slides, ropes course elements, and lots of playground equipment. We all went along and had a wonderful day. We loved getting to know the youth better, and I don't think Dan's eyes could get any bigger than when he saw the huge slide awaiting him.

That's our "D-man!"

There are a good number of middle school age girls that come to church. They have been so sweet to Dan and he is soaking it up! Here he is with Stephanie on the cars. "More, more!" were Dan's demands.

Before we ended the day at Landmark, Joe decided to climb the huge pole and jump! He did great and all the kids were really excited to see him do it. You can barely see him, but that's him up there.
