What to do?

Now that it has gotten cold and rainy, and will be this way forever. Not really but lets realistically say May. I need ideas of what to do with Cade. He's 14 months old and is so much fun but is always on the go and up to something. I would like his "up to something" to be fun rather than just destructive. Please, I could really use some suggestions on where to take toddlers and what's good fun activities to do at home. Thanks in advance.

Happy Halloween!

On Friday we went to Adam's office where Cade got to go Trick-or-Treating. He liked seeing the other kids more than the candy. It was funny to see him walk past bowls of candy and then he would stop and take 4 from the same bowl. Cade really likes going to Adam's office and pushing all the buttons.

Mad that he's not on the computer

On Saturday night we took Cade out with his cousins. He enjoyed it but got cold fast. By the end we even got him to say "Boo" to people instead of Trick-or-Treat

So I know it had been awhile and honestly it was because I was to lazy to look for the camera cord, which come to find out was just sitting on top of the computer desk. Oh well. A few weeks ago we visited the famous Fremont Troll.

The other day Cade was so hungry that we gave him a whole tomato and he ate it like an apple. It made a huge mess but he had lots of fun.

Who can resist this toothy smile!

Cade working hard.

Another one of the Fremont Troll. If you look in the trolls hand you can see a life size VW bug.

Over the labor day weekend some friends took us crabbing. It was supposed to be a rainy day but it ended up being beautiful! We caught a ton of crabs but we only kept 6. That night we cooked them up. It was a really fun adventure.

Checking out the trap
Cade really enjoyed seeing the crabs

12 Months!

I know I already did a Birthday post but I figure it's his 1st birthday he can have two. So we kept his real birthday low key.

So we started the day by singing Happy Birthday and filling his crib with balloons. He loved it!
We gave him on special helium balloon that he loved to hit.We had family over and some cupcakes. He didn't really like the cupcake he took one bite and then threw it.He loved his presents. I think he had a good day

Texas Birthday!

On August 26th Cade turned 1! I can't believe my baby is 1! He is amazing! Everyday is so much and and he really has one of the happiest and friendliest personalities. He is starting to walk and tells me what he does and does not want. He loves to read and to whack things. He is the best eater, he would rather eat tomatoes than his birthday cake. I can't even fully explain how special and amazing he is. I love him more than words can say and I am so lucky that I am his mother. Cade thanks for teaching me to be a mom!

I actually made the Birthday banner!

I decided Cade needed his own special outfit for his party. So, I made this onesie for him.

So in Texas we decided to throw a big birthday bash! Cade had over 30 people at his first party! We had pizza, fruit, vegetables, soda, and of course cake and ice cream.

We set up a water toy for the little kids.I made Cade's cakes. White and chocolate with butter cream icing. He didn't really care for the cake.He tried to share!And he mostly just through it and dumped it off the plate. He did enjoy the ice cream a little more.My handsome boys.

Wedding, family, and Texas fun!

A couple of weeks ago we made our way down to Texas for my brother Zach's wedding. It was a busy time but we got to spend some time at pools and just hanging out with family.

Here we are at the reception. That's my great aunt Mary behind us. She came all the way down from California at 93 years old. Cade with my brothers.

At one of the many great pools with Adam's sisters.

Cade loved the piano at my parents house. Hopefully when I make him take lessons one day he will feel the same way.

Last weekend we went on a little trip to Canada. The Seattle heat was getting to us and we thought Victoria sounded a lot better. (I know some of you are saying 110 degrees for a week is nothing, BUT the homes built in this area don't have AIR CONDITIONING, so it's like your sitting in your own oven)!

It's about a 2 hour ferry ride. It wasn't too bad the worst was when some older women came to talk to me and preceded to tell me that I was a bad mother and that my son was going to get some sort of disease for touching the floor on the ferry. All I can say is you try keeping an active 11 month old still for 2 plus hours and see how well that goes. And I know the floor is dirty but how clean do you think the grass or sandbox is at the park.

We went to the beautiful Butchart Gardens. It really is something worth seeing.

In the Japanese Gardens

The Rose GardenThe next day we went to a petting zoo and just enjoyed the nice weather and beautiful scenery.

Here Cade is enjoying petting the baby goats. He really likes animals.
Then we went and fed some ducks. Cade didn't really like when we started throwing the bread to the ducks. Here he is trying to pick it up and eat it before the ducks could get to it.
All in all it was a fun but fast trip.
