One little monkey...

Jumping in his bed =-)

The end of summer

It's official...summer is gone. Fall is here and although it is one of my favorite seasons, it means less time outdoors. This last week we had a break in the rain with somewhat warmer temperatures, so Aiden and I headed to our last park visit for the year. We were the only ones at the park that afternoon and had fun swinging, going down the slide, kicking the ball in the field, and just cruising. We will miss you summer...see you next year!!!!!!

Halloween 2009

Of course, Nathan worked on Halloween this year, but Aiden and I were able to enjoy the day and sneak a visit to the station to see Dad in too! Aiden was a firefighter (thanks to Kristen who gave me the outfit lol) this year. It was too funny because he kept trying to say costume when I was explaining to him it was time to get changed into his firefighter costume and go to the station! After our station visit, we headed out to Gma & Gpa's house. We carved pumpkins with Uncle Brian which Aiden thought was too cool. I have a video of Aiden taking the seeds out. He would have to get everything off his hand before he would get more out HAHA. There was also a Duck game on Saturday against USC (which the Ducks won!!!!), so we hung out to watch the game with the family and some friends...Aiden had a blast!!!

He was not feeling his firefighter helmet though, so his outfit was just not complete. But the next night, he was all for wearing the helmet and saying "cheese" for the camera!!! So, lets just pretend that he is wearing black pants instead of his brown pj bottoms in these pictures and you get the idea =-)

Just in case you wanted proof =-) Baby #2 is due on May 16th!!!

Seattle Trip

With Nathan's schedule so busy, we haven't been able to do many fun family things lately, but he was able to get some time off and we headed out of town! A very good friend of mine and her family live in Bremerton, WA and we have yet to go visit them. We drove the 4 1/2 hours there and had a GREAT time!!! We came up on a Tuesday and just visited that evening, then went out for an adventure on Wednesday. Of course it was raining, but we made the best of it. We took the ferry to Seattle, visited the Seattle Aquarium (the boys loved touching the starfish and splashing in the water!), walked around Pikes Market, saw the guys that throw fish, got coffee at Starbucks (haha) then headed back to their place. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay longer and left Wednesday evening (got home at midnight but drove straight home and it only took 4 hours). Kristen's son Braydon is about a year older than Aiden but the boys played very well together and made Kristen and I laugh lots!!! We can't wait for our next mini-vacation =-)
