Excavator or Train????

So between these two things Hunter is torn! I would say he loves Trains more however, whenever he see's either one he is elated! Hunter is feeling a ton better so yesterday we went on a very long walk to the construction site! The whole way however, he was a Train! After a very slow but enjoyable walk we were able to enjoy this massive piece of machinery!

Then today I took Hunter to this park he keeps wanting to go to and we had so much fun! Funny thing about this park however is that is was built in honor of a famous engineer Ben Burr! This train statue is in remembrance of his amazing work with the railways, FATE???? I think we may just have an engineer in the making in our little Hunter! But seriously, whatever he turns out to do in his life I am sure he will be fantastic at it. Thanks for your amazing imagination my dear Hunter.

Sick week!

So our weeks started out with Hunter being pretty darn sick! We had a lot of sleepless nights and a lot of high fevers! This first picture is of him chilling on the couch watching toons! It is always so sad when they are not feeling 100%! However, in the last two pic's you will see that this morning we were able to go to the park and enjoy a little fun together! He met some new friends and had a great time playing in the sunshine! The weather is beautiful and the temp is in the 50's! I am enjoying this WINTER!

Quiet time!

So it took me so long to get him down for a nap today and when I finally did I had to take a picture because this is just so sweet!

So this is a post asking for a bit of advice for anyone who considers themselves a bit of an expert in the matter! Here is my dilemma with naps!!!

I have tried it all, no naps, shorter naps, earlier naps, letting him wake up on his term and this is what happens.

No naps = Restless all night long and up VERY early
Shorter naps = Grumpy Grumpy Grumpy until bed and then it is a late bed time by the time I get him down.
Earlier Naps= He could sleep the day away but then he does want to go down by about 9:30 at night and will sleep through the night! (however, I can't seem to get him to do this one that often.
His usual naps are about 3 hours long from 3-6PM= And then bed time is about 10:00-10:30 and is up early.

So with this said, I know my best option is to do the early nap however, how do I accomplish this???? I am up for some ideas ladies and even you dads can help me out with this one! As a mom I want to do what is best for my child but at the same time, I need SOME SLEEP too!

Mobias Park

I met a gal at the library a few weeks ago and her and I have managed to meet up a few times for reading time at the library! Today however, we went to Mobias Park in downtown! It was so much fun, we rode the bus and then went to what Hunter called the Science Park! He had a great time! Thanks Tawnie for a fun day!

Fun week

Wow, what a fun past week we have had! On Wed Hunter and I packed up and Headed to take Ryan to the airport as he had some ART Training (Active Release Technique) down in San Diego! Well we dropped him off and we headed over to Seattle for a little R&R and it was so fun! We spent time with family and did many cool things like go to the pool, go to the park and then the fire station! I was able to fit in a visit to go see Marti a very good older friend of mine! Also we were able to go visit our good old Friends from Maple Valley, the Hawkens!!! They were always such a wonderful family to know and Hunter especially had fun because Harvey has put in a real train and over a mile of train tracks!!! As you can see Hunter loved wearing the engineers hat! Then I got to see my very best friend in the whole world (Chrissy)(We have been best friends 21 Years now!!!!) and spend some time with her husband and her two youngest as well! Then on our way home last night we stopped in Moses Lake to see our good friends the Willards! Sure do love how much fun this trip was! Only bummer is Steph was sick so I could not see her! Steph, hope you are better!!!!

We are now home safe and Ryan had a great time as well! Thanks friends and family for a fun trip home!
