The Arrival of Baby Zachary

Zachary William Snelders was born Monday morning at 2:34 am. He weighed in at 6 lb 14 oz and has dark hair. Everyone is doing very well. Thanks to our great nurse & cousin -- Wendy for helping us get submitted, getting things moved along, and making sure we were taken care of. I'm sure Natalie will want to tell the story of the evening/morning so I'll leave that post to her for another day. We are so happy and thankful to get baby Z here!

Pictures from the big family TRIP!

Britt and Hallie ready to RIDE!
Britt's favorite night...Chocolate Fountain Night!

Cute little fish aren't they?
Nate loves Lake Life!

Nate has mastered the signal for FASTER!

Nate and Britt passed out after a very busy vacation.

Look at that smile! Life is pretty good I think.

Wow, thats all I have to say!

While we are waiting....

While we are waiting for Baby Snelders to arrive here are a few pictures of what we have done this summer. 2 weeks ago Scott took the kids on a trip to Cour d'lene for a family reunion with all this brothers and sisters. I was a chicken and didn't want to get that far away from my doctor/hospital/ and most important my epidural! I was 35-36 weeks along while they were on their trip. I was so bummed to not get to go but it was the decision I felt most comfortable with. They had a great time. As you can see Britt got to do her own hair! She was very proud of this style and I'm not sure what to call it but I know this toothless picture is going in her wedding video! The bed and breakfast they stayed at had a great tire swing and I love to see the smiles on their faces. I know our kids had a BLAST! I am thankful that the kids did miss me a little. Nate asked me the other day, "Mom when you're not fat anymore, do you want to go on the fast ride at Silverwood?" I feel so loved!

Earlier this summer we were able to take the kids to one of their favorite places in the valley...Roaring Springs! They had such a blast going on the slides and playing in the wave pool. Still their favorite ride this year was the racing slide! It was a great way to spend a hot summer day in Boise.
