Stargate Universe

Today we went to a special "cast and crew" screening of the first three episodes of Stargate Universe. It was at the Rio Theatre on Broadway. It was totally awesome to see it on the big screen, and to see stuff Mark has made in it. We both really enjoyed the show. If you are interested in watching it (watch it! Mark worked on it!), it will be on Space (channel 45 in the lower mainland) on Friday October 2 at 6pm.

Also, thanks to my mom for watching the girls so we could go see it!

a fort!

Kara sitting under daddy's computer chair :)

Kara is now sitting up on her own from laying down on the floor. She's still a bit wobbly, and will all of a sudden fall backwards. She either gets scared on bumps her head on something, so we've had a few cries the last few days. But we're super proud.

6 months!

Today is Kara's unbirthday. She has been a wonderful part of our family for half a year. We are so blessed by her smiles, kisses and love.

Kara is almost crawling. She has figured out how to get up on hands and knees, but hasn't quite grasped that by moving each limb one at a time, she can propel herself forward. Its just a few days away though, I think.

This past weekend, we attended the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle. We took Kara with us, as well as our cousin Kory and nephew Tim. We had a good time, but it was a lot of work to take care of Kara and see even half of the stuff we wanted to. I also was part of the Cookie Brigade, a group of attendees that bakes cookies and then give them away in exchange for donations to Child's Play. We raised almost $5,000. Makes me proud.

While we were in Seattle, Chloe went with my mom to Victoria. She also had a great time. She went to a fair, visited the beach, and spent time with lots of my family. It was nice for all of us to be back home though.

Well, off I go to make dinner and finish cleaning up the mess that resulted in rushing to get ready for PAX and not yet finishing putting stuff away from getting home.
