Smiles and a Sportscar

We went to my parents to watch the Husky basketball game on Saturday. We had a great time- lots of wine and blackened fish tacos, yum!

Grant got to "drive" grandpa's cobra for the first time. He loved it. He was all smiles. If we let him, my dad would be taking him for a drive, car seat and all.

I love this one...

A few more photos from this weekend....

Happy baby. Just hanging out with Mom and dad.

Gabby found a comfy spot. I am still not sure how her big body managed to fit on this narrow pillow.

Grant's 5 Month Photos

Grant is 5 months old (a few weeks ago). Mom is a little late getting these one up.

He is into grabbing now; faces, hair, spoons- whatever is in reach. He especially loves his kitty. Whenever she is in sight he gets a look of utter delight. He likes to "pet" her but it is really is getting a fist full of hair.

He is getting closer to crawling. He lays on his tummy and pushes his put in the air and tries with all his might to get somewhere....but he is going nowhere yet.

Catching drool.....

Yay for Mussells!

My mom and dad have been going to the Penn Cove Mussellfest for years and invited Kyle and I this year. I really needed to get away especially since the all-consuming Harborview Gala is over (happy dance). It was a gorgeous day. Coopeville was so picturesque with little shops and a breathtaking view of the water. We loved it.

Here we are changing diapers in the trunk.. It would have been easier if we weren't parked on a hill.

Grantie and grandma jo jo.

The Fam.

Here is the star of the day.....mussells. The ones below were the most delicious. We gorged ourselves and even snuck some wine in dixie cups.

Grantie and grandpa.

We sneaked a peak at some daffodils in bloom in the Skagit Valley. Gorgeous! Also, the neat rows are so oddly satisfying to me- must be those type A genes.

Ahhhh, the best part of a busy day- a super tired baby. Besides the sweet, peaceful face and little snores, my favorite part is that an exhausted baby = more sleep for mom and dad.

Lions and tigers and BEARS

We like to call Grant "Bear." It all started when he had a little brown bear coat with ears that he wore as a little guy. He also has a fuzzy bear hat. We think it would be funny if the nickname stuck-bear woods- very manly and outdoorzy!
