Uncle Orin

My little brother Orin has been visiting us for the past week. It has been so much fun to spend some time with him. My boys are really enjoying having him around. Every morning when Camdin wakes up his first question out of his mouth is "wheres Orin?" Here are just a couple of my favorite moments from our busy fun filled week.

My Tough Little Man

So it has been a hard two weeks for my baby Colton. He has had a double ear infection. This has been number 4 in his short little life. This last one has been really terrible. He has been waking up like every 2 hours at night just screaming and clawing at his ears. He is now on his third antibiotic and it finally seems to be working. Yeah!! He is amazing though because during the day he still smiles and plays like things are practically normal. It has just been nap and bed time that things get rough. I really wish there was some way to take away his pain.
On a happier note Colton has been crawling really well now for about three weeks. Since we got home from San Diego he has gotten really fast. Here is a short video of how fast he is. Enjoy!!
A couple other first we have had in the last month or so. Colton has his two bottom front teeth in, he loves to clap his hands when he is excited and he is really good at feeding himself.

Monster Truck Jam!!

Yes it is true we went as a family to Monster Truck Jam. I tried to get out of it several times. But Dustin got it through his head that it would be a great family activity. (Men:)) Camdin loved it! He loved the loud trucks music and of coarse the trucks jumping in the air. Once Colton got used to the head phones he seemed to enjoy himself. The tickets to the 2pm show were all sold out so we had to go back and watch the 8pm show. Well by nine thirty both of the boys and I had had enough. But all in all it was a fun night. I can now say I have gone to my once in a life show of Monster Trucks.
Waiting for the show to start.

My boys loving the Trucks.

Grave Digger!!

This was Camdin's favorite truck. He called it the Dinosaur Truck.

San Deigo Trip Day 1 and 2

My family is a little spread out right now so we all decided to meet in California for a belated Christmas and vacation together. Dustin the kids and I had our own little adventure together trying to meet everyone else. We missed our connection in Sacramento to San Diego because of snow in Seattle and had to stay the night in Sacramento. Luckily that was the worst part of the trip. Everything else went very smooth (as smooth as they can go traveling with a baby and two year old:)
The moms and kids spent most of the fist day visiting and catching up with everyone while the adult boys went boogie boarding. And of course that night we let the kids open up presents from Grandma and Grandpa and Aunts and Uncles.

On the second day we went to Quail Botanical Gardens. The three oldest boys had fun running around looking at water falls, flowers and playing in the sand and water. It was a fun free activity for the whole group of us.

The kids area was great!Dustin wanted to get his picture taken by the giant aloe plant.
I gave up trying to get them all to look at the camera.
