Issac thinks anytime you have cake then it must be a party. Makes perfect sense to me. Ever since his birthday, anytime we've had cake with every bite he smiles and says, "its a party". The first weekend of August we went to lake goodwin to celebrate a friend's 4th birthday. The beach area is perfect for young kids because you can walk a good 30 feet out & still be in shallow water. In all the excitement of the day, Issac fell twice. Once was a bad fall that scraped his knee, elbow & back on the cement area surrounding the picnic table. When we arrived home, we cleaned up the areas good & Issac got his 1st bandaids, with baloons on them. He still shows us his"hurt spot" but any sign of a scab is completly gone.
The 12th we headed north to Ferndale to spend some time with Grandma Melanie. Friday night we BBQ'd some steaks before we left the kids with grandma to enjoy a few drinks with friends. Saturday we headed to my Mom's company picnic at Hovander Park. Issac had never been inside a bouncy house before. When we first arrived he walked around it for about 10-15 minutes deciding if he was interested. Next thing he was following kids in the door & we couldn't get him out even long enough to eat his catered lunch. We tried to teach Issac how to hop in a sack race but he was reaching nap time & it only lasted a few minutes. We also took a walk over to see the farm animals before we headed back to my Mom's. The 14th is my Mom's birthday so I planned her a little surprise party. THANK YOU to our family & friends who made it over for some chicken cobobs, hot dogs & cake. My Mom was surprised & happy to be surrounded by her loved ones. Sunday we headed home.
The third weekend of August we got to spend some time in Marysville with Tyler's Mom Laura, her husband. Also visiting from Spokane was Tyler's brother Jayson & his wife Andalyn. Tyler & I enjoy when the kids get to see Jayson, at home Issac points out his pictures on the wall. The weather was really nice so we spent sometime outdoors catching up & enjoying some yummy food on both Friday & Saturday evenings. After we headed home I realized we were enjoying each others company & never snapped any pictures, shame on us!!! It was a great time & we can't wait to see Jayson & Andalyn again come the Holiday Season.
For almost the last 5 years Tyler has worked the night shift. Last week he got called into the office and his union number came up for day shift. We are super excited to start this new chapter of our lives. His new schedule is Monday thru Friday 6-2:30pm. We know at first it will be an adjustment but are starting off with a new routine. Sunday morning Disney movie, clean house, dinner & a nightly walk. I hope the kids adjust quickly. Tyler starts days tomorrow so I guess its off to bed. We're having a yard sale next weekend, I hope we make enough money to do something extra fun for labor Day. Enjoy the summer, its almost over. XOXO
