A Quick History Concerning the Hansens

The following is an attempt to relate to you the reader a little of what has been going on in our lives these past many months. It will of coarse be mostly about Paige but I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of Robyn and Aaron content recorded here.
Well in March we moved out of our lovely little home. Leaving behind some awesome neighbors and Paige's favorite neighborhood attraction, the yellow slide.
It was a little frustrating for Paige as she was often
without clean clothes that matched... very important to a 21 month old!

We spent some time throwing rocks into the stream,and this seamed to help pass the time.

I will just pause to fill you in on some non pictured events. during the month of April we spent some time in our friends Nathan and Katie Troxel's house while they were in Vancouver. Then we moved into Robyn's parents house, where we spent the rest of the month. We took possession of our new home on May the 1st, and spent the first week getting it ready to move into (washing walls, painting, and flooring). So that was the first 2 days... then Robyn and I took off to San Francisco with Becky and Gord, while the grandparents took care of the kids. How awesome was that? REALLY AWESOME!
We went sight seeing and found some pretty cheep tickets for a Giants game which was so cool because three of the four of us had never been to a Major league baseball game before. The best part of the whole thing was that we did it on a whim, and the Giants had a come back victory, so it was a great experience.

Gord and I had a chance to visit the "Rock."
And we tested the Bay waters... I think Gord's expression tells what that was like.

Robyn celebrated her 28th Birthday, and was showered with gifts a plenty.
If I may be so bold I would say that Paige and I gave her the best gift.

Here we go, cute picture of Paige.
This is her doing what she loves, collecting things in her basket.

Here she is being mildly unimpressed with our current selection of weather.
Still looking so cute though!

A momentous day; Paige in pig tails.
This is a rare sight so drink it in folks.

Many of you have said that you would appreciate a shot of Robyn and "spud."
Here they are.

We got creative with Paige's room and Robyn painted these cool flowers on the walls.

Paige took in the Sam Steele days parade and really enjoyed it, I got to see the parade from a different perspective... I got to be a cave man with some of the Young Life kids, it was a ton of fun.

This past weekend we went camping with our friends the Hephers and Gord and Becky. The kids loved it and played so well together. Mike and Anie's son Finn is Paige's best friend so it was so great to see them together, the only contentious issue was over a couple of pool noodles, not bad for 2 year olds!

This is how a lot of our time was spent, hanging out at the lake.

Paige was a girl of many hats this trip.

and her and Finn had a great time hopping around on the sand.

Contrary to Paige's expresion we had a great time.

Here is our favorite shot of the weekend.

Well there you have it, the Hansen's in a nut shell. We do hope to be out of the nut house soon, but we are not convinced this is to be. But we'll keep you posted.
Bye for now.

We're Back...almost

Now that we are finally starting to normal out again we thought we would let you know that haven't forgotten our sign in password, we were just really, really, really preoccupied with trying to survive our last three moves. We look forward to sharing with you various pictures that sort of capture our eventful past three months.

Stay tuned...
