We have had a lot of family in town lately - my sister, her husband, and their kids were here for about 10 days, I will hopefully get some more pictures of that visit soon. We were also visited by Will, Ryan's brother, and his wife Stacey. We showed them all around town, and the surrounding tourist destanations. Despite the November-esk weather we had this past week I think we still managed to have a good time.

Sean LOVED the ferry ride - the video is a short sample of what he was doing for about 15 minutes straight on the ride. Such a cute kiddo.

Thanks Will and Stacey for visiting!!!! We had a blast!

How much this kid loves corn on the cob - it is a little ridiculous.

8 on 10 - August

Guess I wasn't feeling very inspired . . . . I managed to get 8 shots in anyway. Enjoy!
The hydrangea plant Ryan and I received as a wedding gift 6 years ago!

Sean found a bag of wild rice in the cupboard (which he can now open) and had his own recipe in mind . . . .

lunch time

One of Sean's favorite games, take the ziplocks out of the drawer, and put them collectively somewhere else.

back home

We just got home from quite the vacation to see my sister and her family, then onto spend a couple weeks with Ryan's family. Sean had a fabulous time both places! Thank you all for your hospitality!!!

This is a video of Sean riding Maria - this was his first horse back ride and he LOVED it! Sean's cousin Rylan was leading Maria for him.
Sean was a big help at Grandma and Grandpa's barn
Grandma got Sean his own little chair to have at the barn - he really like it. This picture is of Who (KR Streakin Who) visiting Sean in his chair. Who was one of Sean's favorite horses.
Sean's play pen. Union Station (the horse) in the background.

Sean also got his own little swing to hang on the horse walker - don't worry we didn't put him on there while the horses were on. Can you tell he was teething?????

Ryan got to have some fun also (here on Hawk). He galloped for his dad which means he exercised the race horses. It was the first time he had done this and I think he is hooked. Not to mention he did a great job. Notice not alot to hang onto there.
We visited a raptor center which was fun since Sean loves birds - we might have scared him a little though, with being so close to them all. Below he is signing bird - there is a huge golden eagle in the background.I think he likes them better from a distance.Sean saying goodbye to Cartel And not wanting to leave Grandma. We had a great time!
