A Day at the Park

Carter lives to be outdoors. He loves nature, walks, the park, the beach, the pool, etc. He loves to climb up on furniture and gaze out the window. He will stand patiently forever at the sliding glass door and beg to go outside. "Peeeeze," he says. His grandpa takes him on a walk every morning that leads through a wilderness trail behind their neighborhood and ends with a stop at the park. Carter loves it. (I am not a fan as the only time I went it was at night and there were coyotes and bats on the trail!)

Today his grandma and I took him to the park to let him run around in the grass. When we realized he had a stinky diaper, I told him it was time to go home. Carter ran a few steps away from us, looked up, smiled, waved and said, "Bye Bye." And proceeded to happily run off through the field as though he could care less that we would be leaving him there. When/how did my baby grow up so fast? Seriously. Look at these pictures. He looks like a kid now!

Written By Dave...

While changing Carter's diaper before bed, I made the mistake of commenting that he didn't pee much since we changed him last. Almost immediately the flow of warmth on my arms began. Within 60 seconds of being peed on, Christy spotted a bug, or so I thought, on my neck and started laughing super hard. It turns out that a bat that flew overhead during our walk, the one I made fun of Christy for being afraid of, pooped on my neck. Christy almost went in to labor from laughing so hard. It was pretty funny but Christy thought it was much funnier than I did.

Not much to post but I do have a few cute videos from the past week or so.

Concert in the Park

On Sunday we went to the free concert in the park at Central Park in Huntington Beach. The music was 1920s style and was really good. Dave was reluctant to go at first but ended up loving how relaxed and laid back the event was. It was great for families with kids and pets, etc. We brought food, drinks, and snacks and got to lay around on a blanket under the trees. We joined Harmony, Jesse, Aimee, and the adorable Wright family. Carter had a great time chasing Parker around and was fascinated by the pedals on Harmony and Jesse's bike. Once again, thanks to Jesse for taking these pictures. I have been lazy with my picture taking lately!

This face.... it doesn't get any cuter than this, right?

Lastly, here's my 20 week belly shot. I am halfway there!

4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! We went to my mom's house for the annual Trabuco Canyon parade. It is really fun and really... quaint? I guess that's a good word to describe it. It is very festive and is made up of the fire department and many of the neighbors and their animals. Here is an idea of the types of things you see:

Harmony and Jesse rode their very cool 2-person bike down the street after the parade but I think they should be part of the actual parade next year, as their bike was probably way cooler than a lot of the other parade action (minus the father and daughter riding unicycles!) My mom's very sweet next-door neighbors had us over for slushies and a BBQ lunch. There was even a pinata. Jesse took some cute pics of the day:
