Proud big brothers!
Hailee not to sure about Kaleb??
The cute outfit my sista bought for Kaleb...the hat is a bit big hee hee! And look at that Dimple!! LOVE IT!!
Ready to go home after a quick stay at the hospital (we took him home before he was even a day old!) :)
Well here he is.... the newest member of the Johnston family, Kaleb Alvin Johnston. Stats: Born July 24th at 6:25pm, Weight: 7lbs 15.5 oz, Height: just under 20". It was a hard delivery (came out looking to the side...OUCH!!) but every second was worth it! Now we have a healthy baby boy. The kids absolutely love him! He's constantly bombarded with kisses. Aidan is such an amazing big brother, always wanting to hold him. He's actually holding him now as I type this. He gets mad when we take him away. So CUTE!! Kaleb is happiest when he can hear the kids. His first night, last night, was a hard one because he's use to soo much noise and it was just too quiet for him, so he was up pretty much all night. We'll fix that soon enough! We are loving having him here and just wanted you all to meet him! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, by the way, did you want other details???? Okay, so he was 7 lbs and 15 oz (our biggest yet), was just under 20 inches long. I got to name him and when he was born the doctor asked me what the name was and I had 3 different names in mind so I told her that I had to look at him first. As I held him for the first time, he started opening his eyes and was soon staring at me. It was so cute. So I decided to name him . . . . . KALEB ALVIN (after my dad) JOHNSTON.
So there you go, we're super excited to welcome our 4th, and LAST, child into the world!!

The Alberta Rose... our provincial flower. Pretty EH!!
Mount Edith Cavell. We ate our lunch at the base of this mountain, not a bad view eh! hee hee
The boys eating some yummy sandwiches and chips...mmmm. A chipmunk and a few birds kept trying to steal our lunch.Hailee munching away...what's new.Eating lunch and having some fun enjoying the scenary.
The kiddos at the start of the hike at the base of Mt. Edith Cavell.
So this last Wednesday we took a road trip to Jasper. One of our Missionaries (Elder Black) is going home next week (that's right, done the mission!) so he and his companion got permission to go to Jasper for their P-day. So we were happy to oblige! We first went on the Tramway up to a top of a mountain so that they could get a really good view of all of Jasper. Then we headed to Athabasca falls. Then we headed up to the base of Mt. Edith Cavell where we had some lunch and then the boys (the missionaries, David, Aidan and Xander) went on a little hike over a ridge to go so the beautiful glaciers and a little lake. The boys hiked the whole way! (45 mins there and back) Hailee and I just bummed around the parking lot and looked for rocks (since we were locked out of the van and couldn't take a nap :( ). Then we took the Elders to the town sight where they did some shopping and of course we all got some treats. On our way home we stopped in Hinton for some supper at BP's. YUM!! It was a great day and the weather turned out a lot nicer than was forecasted so we were all happy about that.

Can't forget Xander Man!
Playing on the beach at Gull Lake.
Beach studs!The kids with the cousins in their mini camp chairs.
Every year we try to make it out camping so that our kids get accustomed to it...since that's what David and I love to do. So we decided we better go soon...before baby #4 comes along. So we went just before the long weekend. This was Hailee's first time camping and she did awesome. All the kids slept well, it was nice and warm and we all had a blast. We went to Aspen beach (Gull Lake), specifically Brewers campground. It was suggested by my sista (thanks Dash, we had a great time!) and the kids loved it! There were playgrounds, a nice beach and a nice fairly warm lake to splash around in. The kids would have lived at the beach if the could of. I thought the kids would play shy with the water but the first visit to the beach Aidan jumped right in...he didn't even have his swim trunks on yet! Dash, Darren and the girls even came up for Friday to spend the day with us. It was a great camping trip and we can't wait to get out again....maybe not this year though. :)
