Ethan time

What do you do when you're child wakes up from a nap, somewhat sad, and asks to go on a walk with you. Being that it was so beautiful outside we decided to take a trip to Lee's Farm. Ethan and I checked out as much as we could. There were lots of animals including a llama which was a bit frightening for Ethan. We nearly had the place to ourselves. It was great. The best part was watching Ethan have so much fun and of course taking some pictures. Here's a sample of our day.

Checking out the goats from a distance
Um mommy, don't look now but the Llama is coming this way. Let's go check out the cows.
He watched them from a distance, but was happy to show off his "moo" sounds

Don't look now, but the llama is watching us again. Let's go hide in the hay maze.
Mama, which way should I go?
I got it!
I have to climb up that to go down the slide. Whoa!
I can do it!
We did this several times and was by far the highlight for him. I guess getting a bite of his mama's apple cider donut wasn't too bad either. =)

Fall Fun

Here are some pictures from our family harvest party. This first picture is of Ethan on Friday (day before) when mommy needed something to occupy Ethan's time. I was busy making zucchini bread and potato casserole. So I decided to give him a bowl of oatmeal and a spoon knowing bathtime would follow, but it would give me the 10 minutes I needed. So first he started out eating the oatmeal with a spoon. A little messy but not bad. Then who needs a spoon when your hand works just as well. So now a little messier. I knew it was bathtime when Ethan decided to put the bowl on his head saying "hat" repeatedly as he did it. Mommy finished in the kitchen just in time. What a goof ball. =)
Here is Ethan getting attacked by Uncle Trent

Our little boys. They're so cute!!!

Rock Throwing Lessons

Eric showed off his mad skills of rock throwing when we were in Mt. Rainier. Now he is training our little guy. As you can see from the pictures he had a BLAST!

This is Ethan doing the "Rock happy dance" while Dada is watching.

Okay now I've got to remember everything dada taught me.

First I must find a rock, but not just any rock.
Maybe if I take a closer look

Here it is!
I'm so excited! I'm so excited!
Okay, now THROW!

I'm am so pleased with myself.
I stopped for a second to let my mama take a picture. She loves it!
Okay, I'm going to make this last one count. My dada will be so proud.
Whoa, did you see that! I mean DID YOU SEE THAT? This calls for the Happy dance.

Chillin' with my dada. What a great day!
