Hiking Monster

We are loving the pass. Lazy days of naps and hikes. We have started lots of hikes, but haven't finished many. Bryce is good for about 2 hours. You can see he has can even snooze on the hikes. We have had my parents, my aunt Sandy, and Janice, Micah and Sawyer come for hikes. We love having visitors on our hikes so please come visit. Call or text, I don't really have great computer access. Today we are headed to Elko and will be there until next Tuesday. Then next week I have a conference in Crakima. But other than that, I'd love to take you on a hike! The only downfall of the summer is not having Kitty with us. But he is sitting next to me and seems no worse for the wear (thanks Nate!).

This a long one but I think it so cute! What could be cuter, Bryce, Kitty, and Tarn. I know I am a bad parent. Bryce's favorite toy, a 1.99 cat toy, probably made in China, with who knows what chemicals on it. I remember taking it away from my dad when he first let him play with it. And yes, I know he can poke his eye out with it, and I know you are not supposed to let your baby hang with the dog. But he likes it. Bryce again got to hang with the grandparents for a couple of weeks. He loved it! We will have to come off the grandparent hang over and get into our routine. I have mapped out his feeding schedule and the baby whisperer said now is prime time to potty train. Hmmm, we'll see. Grandma turned 60 and Bryce got to help her celebrate. And I finished my internship and now I am officially done with school forever. Have my first official school psychology job starting August 20th and have 10 weeks of Bryce time. I am calling it Maternity Leave. Don't expect me to be productive. How many ways can you say Lucky??? Happy Birthday MOM - 60 years young. I hope I look half as good as you at 60! Thanks for taking care of Mr. B and cleaning my car.

Hike 1

My video camera was full so I needed to get some videos off there. Mostly it is Bryce clapping. He has learned to clap his feet. I will be plugging that in for crawling when asked about developmental milestone. Ya - he doesn't crawl, but he does clap his feet. We spent 4 nights up at The Pass in the cabin. It is very nice and very fun. I went for 3 hikes only 1 was to completion so I am down to 54 hikes to do. Not sure if I should count it since my dad carried Bryce. True to form, it rained the whole time. Ask Damon how he likes it up there since he was working most of the time. We made a trip to REI and Trader Joes in Issaquah. Tarn got a backpack. He is going to start carrying his weight.
