A quiet couple days so far this week but that is good, we needed to wind down a bit. We gave our best friends (and Beckett's Godparents) a baby shower this weekend and that took a bit of doing to get together. They're having a little girl and its really hard to find baby girl things that aren't all pink and ruffley - since nobody in this family is pink or ruffley! I think we did good though, they got alot of great things. My mom made a diaper cake for them that turned out great. Its like a tiered cake but the tiers are made of diapers... A great gift since its extremely useful but wrapping a box of diapers is just not exciting! We're all about cars at our house lately... Both the movie and the vehicles. Beckett doesn't play with anything if it doesn't have wheels. We also set up his new twin size bed and he's absolutely loving it! He sleeps much, much better now which is nicer for everybody! We also bought another stroller today - its our 4th or 5th one I think. Beckett is just so tall and big for his age that he outgrows even the nicest and most expensive ones. I've done my research on this one though and it should get us through... Plus it has a ton of add on accessories that we can use if we need the stroller for baby #2 someday... Tomorrow we're heading to the dog park with Spike and Lucky again. It's supposed to be in the mid 90's by the end of the week so we'll probably go in the morning and try to stay cool in the afternoon... All is going really well - I'm fighting some sort of sinus issue but I'll get to the doctor and that should be easy enough to fix. Til next time...

A few updates

We've gotten re-acquainted with a couple friends that we've lost touch with over the past years... its been a wonderful couple weeks and a fantastic summer all around. We went to the McChord airshow a couple weeks ago topping off an incredible toddler week... this last weekend started with Sand Sculpting practice that went way better than anybody expected and I think we're all looking forward to a great day this year and it ended last night with a friend at our house watching the movie Saw. We spent Sunday at Woofstock in Tacoma with Lucky (spike stayed home) and went to the Ft. Stilacoom dog park - a great, great park. Beckett loved it just as much as the dogs! then we went for a bbq, had burgers and grilled corn on the cob and other than an itchy sunburn it was really the perfect day! we got the living room together as I finished painting last week, now we're ready to tackle Beckett's room and assemble the "real" bed we got him. This is turning out to be an absolutely perfect summer for our family and we're really getting into the grooves of being in Oly in the summertime!
