Toast Monster

I guess he just wanted some toast. Toast eaten in a matter of seconds.

Canyon for a day bike ride

So happy to have visitors to participate in the Canyon for a day! Bryce made it close to 10 miles in his trailer behind Damon. It is depressing when Damon takes off up a hill with the trailer streaming after him and you are going so slow just to try to make it up. KC, Laurel, Mom, Dad and Sandy joined us for Bryce's first ride. Glad to have turned around 9.4 miles in to beat the pouring rain. Next year, back to riding the whole thing. Bryce seemed to enjoy lounging in the trailer. He loves his skin suit and his helmet hawk.

Flashback Friday

Heather took this cute picture when Bryce was a few weeks old. We are having so much fun with this cute little monster. Right now I am hoping that he sleeps a couple of minutes longer so I can finish a cup of coffee. That probably won't happen since Tarn is loud barking at Kitty right now. I am about as excited to Friday's as I have ever been. Partly because I am so tired, equivalently tired as I was in January. Not as tired as I was last February, when I was pregnant, working full time and going to class three nights a week. (Tarn if you don't stop whining at the lady walking her dog- I am going to snap). So I am about a 7 on the tired scale. A 10 being October of this year and a 9 being February of last year. I just wanted to honor this last year and how hard it has been. Literally, I have started 3 new jobs and had to close them out before moving onto the next job with a brand new baby and for the last month a husband gone most of the week. My parents have been so helpful, and my aunt Sandy has come to take care of Bryce. We would not, could not have done it without them. AND I get summer off. 13 days to go.

We think the soy formula is working. Bryce started eating and started saying ball. If he starts crawling in the next few days, it will be official.

The fence finally got done being painted. About 9 months after it got started. Damon started painting the fence a the week we had Bryce. I did not help at all. Damon did some, his friend Troy did some, my dad did lots, and my mom did some. Me, I am like Tom Sawyer and just picked up the paint brush at the end. The paint alone for the stupid fence probably cost over 500$. What. We even have some extra for the next time we get tagged. Bring it on want to be gangsters. Paint the fence. Damon fixed the irrigation. Seriously, we aren't doing any more work on this house. We also got to have a hot date, thanks to super sitters, mom and dad. Next weekend is the Canyon Ride. Should be interesting since I haven't rode a bike since last Canyon ride when I was 7 months pregnant.

My parents to the rescue again!

The drain got backed up between our house and the sewer line. Water was coming up into the bathtub and around the toilet. So my dad came and snaked it and fixed it. We'll be doing some, hopefully, painting of the fence (you know the one that started getting painted the day after Bryce was born) and fixing the irrigation lines. The irrigation has been a thorn in our side since the day we bought the house. Then the house will be in business for the summer while we aren't around. Here is Bryce playing with his friend Logan on a recent trip to Wenatchee. Logan was born at 26 weeks old or something crazy like that. Bryce is now showing Tarn his treat and not giving it to him. Awww I better get to work. Loving the sunshine. Happy weekend all.

Kitty Joy

We are so excited! We have found a place at the pass. 5 weeks to go and then 10 weeks of living in the mountains and being a stay at home mom with Bryce. I know there are a lot of you out there that are working odd schedules or working at home with the munchkins, so please join me as I attempt to hike all 55 trails in the Snoqualmie Pass trail guidebook. We can pick a hike that fits your time frame. The longer hikes will be done near the end of the summer when I am in shape!
