Thursday Lucas, Ty, and myself went to the park for lunch and some fun with friends. Lucas played and played on the toys and in the splash park. Ty kept close to me and ate lots of Cheetos and Nutter Butters.
I got to visit with my friends Adi and Cristy. Our goal is to get together once a month but it usually takes us three months to find a day when we are all free for a few hours. That sounds so silly but life is just too busy sometimes.
We always do find the time eventually to get together and I'm grateful for that. Yesterday, as I was thinking of my day I realized how grateful I am for such wonderful women in my life. I have only known these friends for five years and yet, I feel like we are life long friends. I know that is a precious thing and it doesn't always happen that way or so fast, at least not for me. I am so grateful to them (LeShel is included in all of this of course, and yes we missed you tons) and to all of you out there who have been my friend (including my sisters). I'm grateful for blogs and that one Christmas card a year. It makes me feel a part of your lives even when we all live all over the country. I'm grateful for life long friendship.

Funny Ty

Ty is so cute right now. He loves to get out all my pots and he stands on anything he can.

He doesn't talk yet but can say mama. When we tell him no his reply is usually to scream or cry. He falls down a lot but gets right back up and continues to do whatever he was doing before he fell. It has been a lot of fun watching him grow this summer.

Friday we met Uncle Scott, Uncle Ben, and Uncle Kevin and his family at Lagoon. Lucas has never been and so he had a great time. He loved being with his uncles and wanted to do everything with them.
We got Lucas to go on the Colossus roller coaster but not Wicked. He loved the bumper cars so much that they did them twice.
It was great to be with family and to have fun. Kellie had Ty while we were gone and it made things so much easier. Thanks Kellie!

Ty's First Hair Cut

Here is Ty with his shaggy hair. We loved it because it was curly in the back and it was just so cute. BUT, it was time to get it cut. He is not a girl and it was getting long. I didn't want to cut it. I messed up Lucas' hair enough times that the most I would do for Ty is trim it a little around his ears and on top. Aunt Diana had given him a trim also but today was the day for his first real hair cut.
Doesn't he look so big and cute! We went to the local Great Clips and the lady did a good job. He sat on my lap and cried the whole time. Once in a while he would try to get away but he did okay for his first time.

He is such a fun baby. He is already driving us crazy getting into anything and everything. Luckily for us he can't open the toilet lid yet and toilet paper can be put up while not in use. He can go down the stairs but keeps trying to walk down like we do. He sleeps through the night and still takes two naps!
