Walk for Life

The company I work for had a team in the Walk for Life (a 24 hour walk - day and night), which is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Matt and Aaron decorated luminaries for Matt's uncle Russ and two friends of ours, Janet and Catherine. The luminaries line the course and are lit at dusk. We walked for nearly two hours Saturday afternoon,
Here's Russ' luminaryCatherine's luminary is second from the right in the front row
Janet's luminary is the far right, second row
Here we are walking

Miscellaneous July pictures

This picture of Ryan cracks me up

Aaron loves to help water the flowers...with his boots he looks like a little fire fighter

Cooling off
Aaron thought that Ryan needed a hat

Check out Ryan's ear, some how he got it stuck folded in half

Vancouver, B.C. Aquarium (July 2008)

Aaron checks out a sea turtle
A sloth hanging out in the butterfly room

Ryan likes the butterfly room

Aaron points out "Nemo"...he actually found a clown fish and started calling it Nemo...if you look closely you will see it in the picture
Strange fish

Mommy and Aaron watch the otters play
Mommy beluga whale gets checked out while the baby beluga (bottom right corner) watches
Aaron watches the dolphin show on Daddy's shoulders
It's amazing how high the dolphins could jump in such a small space

Aaron earned a driver's license in Stanley park's driving school for kids
Pooped! Do you see the snake around his shoulders? Out of all the items in the gift store at the aquarium, this is what he picked (we tried really hard to persuade him without success).
