Jarrett's 6th birthday

My Jarrett is a great kid. He is a tender hearted sweet boy that knows how to make his mom and dad give in. He is a true friend, he makes friends with any kid anywhere he goes. He tells me I'm beautiful everyday. He's a deep thinker. He's a philosopher about life. He's spontaneous and energetic. And he's mine and I love him!

San Juan Island Camping Part 1

This post is long overdue....summer happens. Now that summer is halfway way over and things have calmed down here it is! We left for San Juan Island on June 13th along with my parents who had come up to go camping with us. Our trip started with a ferry ride from Anacortes to Friday Harbor. We stayed at Lakedale resort which is about 10 miles outside of Friday Harbor.
Friday Harbor is a cute Island town with lots of little shops and restaurants. It even has a bowling alley and movie theatre. I love camping on the Islands you feel like your far from home but really your only 2 hours away. Plus I love the smell of the salt water, reminds me of summers going down the shore. (translation- New Jersey beaches) We got to tie dye some shirts the second day we were there. It brought back memories of girl scout camp.
to be continued.......

Chase is 10 months old!

Chase is 10 months and a ball of energy! He does not sit still for very long. If you don't hold on tight he tries to dive out of your hands, over furniture or down the stairs! He cruises around furniture even taking his hands off to almost make a step. He can clap his hands wave hi and bye and climb the stairs! He is eating table food and can drink out of a cup. He only has one tooth popping through so far. He is a great sleeper, He sleeps all night long with 2-3 naps a day.
I couldn't ask for a better baby!
He last went to the Dr. at 9 months and his stats were: 18lb 15.5 oz. and 28 in. long. Even though he is our 5th baby I still cannot believe how quickly they grow up.
