In the blink of an eye....

...things can change!

As Grant and I traveled out West to visit family we had an interested flight. Our first plane was suppose to leave at 6:20 am (makes for a very early morning for everyone) but it was delayed 30 minutes due to a mechanical problem....which always makes you feel real safe. Grant stayed awake the entire flight which was good because it was the shorter flight. As we made our connection for a 2 1/2 hour flight things started off GREAT. Normally the flight is packed but this was our lucky day as there was an empty seat in our row. So Grant just played with his toys in the empty seat and I could sit back and relax. I remember thinking "this couldn't get any better". Just about then Grant decided he needed a drink and flipped the opening on his straw sippy cup....which it had not been opened since we took off and the pressure caused it to become a water fountain. I was soaked, Grant was wet and the seat was wet. Then Grant stood up on the empty seat and threw his matchbox car at the girl behind us (hitting her in the head). As I was correcting Grant (the best you can in a plane) he threw a BIG tantrum - complete with screaming, kicking, hitting, and pinching for about 5 minutes. Then he fell asleep for the rest of the flight. I was so happy when we landed!

Oh I almost forgot...I ran my second 5k yesterday. I can't believe I did it again and the same thoughts were going through my mind..."why did I sign up for this?". As we were getting ready to start I was at the starting line with everyone else and I heard this guy say "I got 3 place at this race last year"...that is when I knew I was too close to the front of the line so I quickly moved back. This course was quite different than the first race - there were two monster hills and about 1/3 of the race was on grass (slightly more difficult than pavement). All that running at the gym must have paid off as my time was over 2 minutes faster than before (28 minutes 45 seconds). Maybe next time I can get under 28 minutes....did I just say "next time". I'm definitely going through a mid-life crisis. Someone get me some help!

From 3 to 6

Until yesterday we could only seat 3 people in our living room....we have now doubled that with our new furniture! We are so excited to have it! Grant loves all the new things he can climb on! Mainly the coffee table...so there have been many time-out session due to climbing on the coffee table. We still have a few things to add (pictures, ect.)...but for now we are just happy to have a full size couch! It has been 4 years since we have had a full size couch.

Pool Adventures

Today for playgroup we had a pool party at Carrie's house. There were a bunch of kids there but I didn't get my camera out until towards the end. I think the kids had fun playing in the pools and sprinklers. After almost everyone left Grant and Caleb continued the fun...well it was probably more fun for Caleb than Grant as you will see. Grant did get Caleb back a few times...but I had to help him spray Caleb so I didn't catch it on camera. The only thing I caught was at the end...where Grant finally let Caleb know he had enough.

Look who came over for dinner




I made Nate move her nest to the dog house...poor little thing she must have spent hours making that nest. I think she is very cute as long as she is outside...once she enters our house....that is another story. Nate might get to do what he originally planned to do with her....

Weekly review

More playing with Baxter this week. We also went to an orchard for some afternoon fun - trains, mini-golf, goats.... Grant loved the play area - mainly driving the train. Grant also had his first ear of corn. Well it was actually my ear of corn (really good corn I might add)...and about 1/2 way through the ear Grant decided he wanted it. Grant also had a bad diaper rash early in the weeks...so he spent a bunch of time running around with just a shirt on....and you can imagine what happened on the floor every now and then.
