Window Watching

One of Emerson's new favorite pass times is to watch the birds and cars out the window. It is the first thing that he does when he wakes up and he does it frequently through out the day.

Today, however, it was for a different reason that he was watching out the window. The Hillsboro Air Show is going on today and when the planes fly any where near, they totally shake our house. Emerson just had to know what was going on, so we went to the window and looked for all the planes. He did see a couple of them and he thought that it was awesome. We might just have to go up closer to the airport for tomorrow's show, so he can see all the planes. He would LOVE that.

Camp Fires and Ocean Water

Last weekend, we went on out Ward Campout at the Beach. It was a lot of fun. It was Emerson's first time camping and going to the beach. Needless to say he had a BLAST! I have never seen that child as dirty as I saw him this weekend. It was terribly disgusting.
He thought that it would be fun to lick the dirt...
I don't think that he liked it.
He loved the beach until the cold Oregon Coast waters hit his little feet. Then he was plenty happy playing just in the sand.
We can't wait for the next camp out and our next outing to the beach.

Nusery Time!

Today was Emerson's first official day of Nursery. He did great! He did not care that Jason nor I was there with him. In fact he couldn't get away from us quick enough.

Right after sacrament meeting, Emerson disappeared. Jason and I started to look for him in all his usual spots, but he wasn't anywhere to be found. So we started looking in classrooms to see if he followed some kid into their class. We, then, got to the door of what is to be his nursery and there he was standing in there, already playing. We asked the teacher if he let him in and he told us that Emerson was all alone in there when he got there. Who knows how he got into the room and how he knew that was were he was supposed to be. He is just too smart!

Heather's Baby Shower

I helped throw my friend, Heather, a baby shower last night. It was a lot of fun to throw. I think that it turned out to be a lot of fun, and the food was AWESOME!

Congrats Heather! Adelyn is adoreable!

Before dinner last night, we went out and blew some bubbles. Emerson LOVED LOVED LOVED it. He chased them all around. He even tried to blow some of his own (that concept ws a little over him though). It is amazing how such a simple things as bubbles makes a child so happy. We might have to make this a weekly tradition...until the weather doesn't allow it anymore.
