Weston Memories

I just wanted to write down a couple more things Weston's been saying that I want to remember!

Lately when we say something and he doesn't hear us or understand he says, "Say again?" He says it in the sweetest voice and I hope it lasts awhile before turning into something else.

We usually go on at least one walk a day. Usually I'm walking Danger and Weston is riding his bike or scooter. He'll take off from me and say "See you later! Love you!" Then meet up with me again 10 or 15 feet later and say, "Hi, how did your day be?" or "How did your walk be?" I tell him it was great and ask him and he replies the same and we do it all over again.

There was one more thing and I couldn't remember it. I just looked over at Weston and said, "What do you say that's so cute?" He replied, "YOU! You are so cute, Mom." I love this guy!

A visit from FRIENDS!!

Weston and I have been having friend withdraws since moving to Colorado. We love it here: We get family and we've been meeting a lot of great people, but it takes time to build relationships. Weston always asks if his Indiana friends will be anywhere we go. We've been so excited to see the McRaes and get to meet baby Brynn. It took West and Piper a minute to warm up, but you can tell by the pictures they enjoyed each other:) We're so grateful we will get to see them every once in awhile. It makes good byes a little easier. However, West keeps asking if Piper is going to fly to her grandma's and come to the park with us:)

A couple weeks ago, Eric's company had a national sales meeting and invited out everyone's spouses to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. I had so much fun getting to see a few Bloomington friends and getting to meet a few more or Eric's co-workers. We ate A LOT, relaxed, and danced more than I have since before we were married.

I guess we were having too much fun to take pictures (I had to steal this one off facebook!-thanks Joy) The night of the Gala we enjoyed dinner and some great impersonators. Tim McGraw was first, but they didn't introduce him as an impersonator so there was a mass flood to the dance floor/stage. I had to convince Eric he wasn't really Tim McGraw:) He was followed by David Bowie and Micheal Jackson!

One afternoon we took a "Mansions of the South" tour. It was fun, but we maybe could have choose better. When we first got on the bus our tour guide started naming off all of the "cool" things we could have done and asked "So why'd y'all choose this one??" However, it certainly doesn't get much better than these tour guides-

Day of Festivals!

A few weeks ago we hit up the PBS kids festival downtown in the morning and the Italian festival that night! It was a full day, but we had a lot of fun:)

He was pretty excited to meet Curious George:

His favorite part was the Urban Zoo:

Abusing the geese-

This picture was my favorite. He was getting brave and close to all the animals and then this guy decided to look at him. He almost fell over backwards into the trough in his fright.

The Italian festival was great food, great friends, and fun music!

Making Little feet wine-

Cleaning the grapes off-

Checkin' out the band with Lydia-

Labor Day 2011

We decided to drive up Mt. Evans for Labor Day.

We stopped at one of the lake's on the way up to skip rocks:

Weston is still (a month later) telling people, "We saw mountain goats and I hiked up the rocks with My Dad." Apparently I wasn't there...

...but this is my proof!

Summer Fun!

I've been lazy about posting, but we've had a lot of fun this summer!

At the end of July our neighborhood had a block party! I was so excited to get to know some of our neighbors. It was fun and we at least recognize some of our neighbors now:) The lady who put it together asked some firefighters to come out and talk to the kids. They LOVED it. They got to check out the truck and run through the "sprinklers" or freezing cold firehose water!

At the end of July Weston also hit another big milestone! He's potty trained! He did such a good job and was so easy! I have no complaints-he's a rockstar!

This is him with the prize he chose after filling up this sticker chart:

Weston and I have been trying to learn our new city and we hit up the Children's museum on their "free" night. It was CRAZY! I think he still had a good time, but it might be worth paying next time.

I can't believe I only have one picture from this weekend. A few of Eric's highschool friends came out to visit us and we had so much fun. My mom took Weston for a day and a night and it was like we went somewhere for vacation too! The guys golfed while the girls went to the pool followed by a night down town! The next day we hit up Elitch Garden's (Denver's Six Flags). We picked up Weston at the end of the afternoon and brought him back to the park. He loved it! I feel like I've got to have pictures somewhere?? He went on the kid rollercoaster and could barely keep his head up, but he still cried when he had to get off. Weston loved having friends over. Especially big guys that played football and hide n seek with him!

Here are the guys minus Trav (I think they're watching a PBS kids show?) We hope they come back!!

We love getting to live close to these friends! We met up at a great park with everything a kid could want (playground, water, train ride, and petting zoo)

This post wouldn't be complete without a painting picture. We've been painting, re-painting, and more painting since we moved in. Weston loves to help, but this is probably the most I let him do. He did most of that wall and without any disasters!
