cold, cold, COLD

Ok, I think it has been below freezing for like 3 weeks. I know I am not going to get a lot of sympathy from some of my readers, but I really hate the cold. Not only to I hate the cold, but I hate being stuck inside with a 16 month old for 3 weeks...and I don't think he likes it either. We did have a snow day, rather, a snow morning. Here are pictures:


James and a snow ball:


Running around the yard.


Our snowman, James was about done at this point.


Here is the remainder of the snow man...8 days later!

Dancin' Machine

If anyone knows where I could get this song in cd or mp3 form, Iwill make you a batch of brownies of your choice.

Does this work?

Let's go hiking, hiking, hiking...

I have had a request for more videos. I don't post them, because I don't watch them. I just don't have that kind of time! But James does like to watch them, so here you go...

We went hiking this weekend at Table Rock State Park and did the Carrick Creek trail. Some of you might remember Table Rock State Park as the place I tried to kill you on the Pinnacle Mountain trail, but that simply is not true. Anyways, here is James in his Kelty Pathfinder.

James loved looking at the waterfalls. Good thing he was strapped down or he would be swimming!

This is what he was pointing at. Pretty, huh? Sometimes, I still can't believe we live here.

Eventually, James just got to the point where he wanted to reach out a touch nature. And put it in his mouth.

Here is Dad and Son walking down the mountain. This particular trail was 1.9 miles long and was pretty moderate, ie, not easy.

I have also had some request for belly shots which I feel like I should be exempt from since this is my second child. Anyways, here you go. I don't think Baby#2 liked hiking. I think it is going to be a city chick.

This weekend we met James's BFF, John, at Barrett's Place playground in Pendleton. It is one of those old school wooden playgrounds and it is super cool.


James's favorite piece of playground equipment is the swing. We will often have 2 or 3 swing sessions for each trip to the park.

James was looking at John in the next swing over.

Then, of course, James has to drive the boat.

James and John playing in the sand. There are always some sand toys around!

James taking a break on the "rainbow bridge". He has been doing this a lot. It is very wierd.

John and his daddy across the "tot lot".

But no dogs allowed. Sorry Keets!
