Cottage Days

Here's some photos of our fun at "The Cottage." It's the place we've gone to for years with Lisa's extended family. Its a big lodge and there is about 50 people on the grounds for the week. We had a wonderful time!

Here Chris and Kellon are singing a song for Lisa's Grandmother, "Great Oma" (Dutch for Grandma)

Kellon and Allie hanging out with their cousin Jacob. He is so much fun!

The beautiful setting!

The growing Brink clan!

Allie's First Birthday

We were at the cottage in Bancroft, Ontario for Allie's birthday, so we did a special dinner with family outside. You can see the sand and tents in the background!

YUM! Allie's first taste of cake!


Allie got to have a second party when Chris' side of the family could all get together on Labor Day! So more cake, more attention, and more presents!

Happy 1st Birthday, gorgeous Allie Grace! You are such a blessing to our family!

Had to add one more picture of Kellon enjoying Charleston Lake...priceless!

Here's some pictures from our camping trip at Charleston Lake in Ontario with Lisa's family. We were truly "roughing it" in a tent, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and good family times.

Enjoying some Cheerios a little too early in the morning!

July 4th Parade in Norwood! It was Kellon's first parade and at first he wasn't quite sure what to think. But he enjoyed it and especially loved the marching bands and the loud drums! Too bad it was so cold and rainy...

This video is several weeks old now, but I love how Allie shows off her new skills in it: playing ball with Kellon, crawling, and standing holding on to furniture. Kellon is so proud of his little sister!!

Allie Grace...

Allie Grace is now 5 months old. She's grown so much and we thought we might share some pictures...Lisa and I would like to thank our professional-camera-toting family: thanks Cheryl, Ryan, Kevin, Chad, and the rest of you who make Allie feel like a celebrity. I thought I would just post these pics in the blog instead of in a slideshow...

Reading at a young age...

Hanging out in the Jolly Jumper...

Bring on the food!

Brother and Sister...
