Things that make you go hmmmm....

What is on that dog?
(we were playing with silly string and kept missing Chase but managed to hit the dog a few times- oops)

I have never heard so many engine noises come out of one little boys mouth than when he got to ride on Papa's 4 wheeler. Chase sat behind Ryan and put his arms around his waist and never stopped smiling - I don't think my garage is big enough for the two of them.

Won't my Daddy be so proud of me????

So what do you think is it me?
Chase has discovered Taylor's dress up clothes - he mostly likes the hats :-)

Tag - I'm it

I've been tagged to share 7 random facts/habits about myself. At the end of the post, you can tag your friends by listing their names. Also, remember to leave them a comment letting them know they've been tagged.

Let's see - 7 random facts - Here we go:

1. I hate water (lakes, ocean, etc.), but I love the rain.
2. I would love to work with exotic animals.
3. I want to learn to belly dance (probably not in this lifetime though)
4. I would rather be cold than hot!!!!!!!!!
5. I love to travel (maybe that's the whole Gypsy/Belly dance thing?)
6. I am very competitive.
7. I love anything peanut butter and chocolate

I think everyone I know that blogs has already been tagged except for maybe Kelly B.- if you are out there go for it :0)

Keeps me laughing

So we decided to wean Chase from his bottle and went straight to the gallon. Just Kidding - although he did have fun drinking and pouring the water down the front of himself - I don't think he is ready for the gallon yet.
He carried this empty water jug around for hours -who knows????

Daddy left his opened Twix candy bar on the side of the couch.

All I could hear was MMMMMMMMMMMM.

To bad you can't fill the inside of a Twix with green beans -then maybe he would eat them too.

Fun Presents

Grandma Susan and Grammy got Talyor a charging/speaker setup for her IPOD. Now we just have to figure out how it all works!
Check out the new kicks - Grandma Karen and Papa Bear sent Taylor money to buy these Heelies that she has been dieing for. She did about kill herself at first wearing them but now I must admit she is getting pretty good.

Is it real?

Ryan and I got Taylor an IPOD Nano for her birthday. When she opened it she screamed and then asked if it was real? and then if it was all hers or does she have to share it? It took awhile to convince her it was hers and yes it was real!

This is her latest Webkinz. They are stuffed animals that come with a passcode so you can log onto the computer and take care of them (feed, bath, house, etc...) It's kind of crazy, but she has two of them now and is really enjoying them. Some of her friends have them too and you can actually logon and play games together.

What will they think of next.

Happy 10th Birthday Taylor

Taylor invited three of her friends to go to dinner and a Movie for her birthday. It was fun!

This is probably the only time Chase throughout the entire meal. Let's just say that this will be his last meal out for a llllooooonnnnnggggg time.

Tah - Dah I'm 10!!!!!!!

Jelly fish crazy

This was my favorite exhibit at the Aquarium. They had Jelly Fish in these bright blue tanks - they were so bright almost a glowing neon - I'm sure they don't look quite like this in the Ocean.

I can't remember the name of this one - it was something about a crazy hat -which it kind of looks like.

Don't you love these?????

I think they look like tiny little UFOs out in space.

Butterfly World

Maybe they will think I'm a flower if I hold very still in my bright red polka dotted dress!

FYI: I love Tigers! So this Butterfly is sooooo Cooool!

It worked - they do like my polka dotted dress.

Vancouver Aquarium

I decided that this summer we were going to finally go visit some of the places I have wanted to go and just never have. One of the first on my list was the Vancouver Aquarium. It turned out to be a great sunny day at the aquarium. Just before this picture a Dolphin jumped behind us and Chase about jumped out of my arms and then started crying (I don't think he was expecting anything to come out of the water). After he realized what the Aquarium was all about he really had a fun time. We even talked Grammy into going with us.

Chase didn't seem to care about the Sea otter swimming behind him.

Paging Dr. Chase............

Chase carefully preps. for surgery on a Harbor Seal (stuffed of course).

Every little boy needs a Tonka truck

I just couldn't resist the 60th Anniversary Tonka Truck. Once Chase saw this at the store and started to make motor sounds I knew I was had! As you can see he loves to haul himself around in it. The truck actually has a metal dump bed (remember when the entire thing was metal -my brother ran his through our sliding door -fun times) So I thought this was cool that it had any metal on it at all - most of them are plastic now a days. It's nice to buy a toy that he actually plays with more than the pots and pans.

Now all I need is a garage!

What do think about a 4" lift????

Maybe next year :0)

Mt.Baker July 1st

My brother was visiting from California and so we drove up to Mnt. Baker. We should have brought our snow shoes. The rode is not even open to the top yet.

Tanya and Chase. Chase didn't like walking in the snow - well I guess you could say he didn't mind walking in the snow it was the falling in the snow that he didn't like.

Like Father like Son. Out of everything up there Chase managed to find the huge snow cats. He actually licked a tire - OK maybe that isn't like his Father or is it??? :-) (he has a thing with tires lately).

Boulevard Park

We could not have asked for more perfect weather this week. We took a long walk down the pier at Blvd. Park in Fairhaven and then of course went for a piece of Cheesecake at Calaphone MMMMMMMMMM!

The tide was way out so there were tons (literally) of crabs when you turned the rocks over.

Jessica (cousin), Julia (cousin) and Taylor all in brown shirts - weird!
