New Blog for Nathanael

We recently started fundraising with COTA to cover Nathanael's medical expenses, so updates about him will be on his new blog from now on: Please check out the blog, pictures, and opportunities to help, and feel free to pass along the link to others. We appreciate your concern!

Vacation Continues

Here are a few pictures from the second week of family vacation: lots of time with family and friends, lots of relaxing and playing, and lots of silliness! All-in-all we had lots of fun, and are thankful for the time we've had together.

The boys enjoyed "making sandwiches" with some borrowed toys (thanks Jerri!) that we too
k along on the trip.

They also enjoyed wearing the hats from Nathanael's impromptu birthday celebration.

Jamison was especially intrigued by the secret playroom under the stairs at Aunt Chris & Uncle Doug's house, but he let Nathanael play with him for a short time as well. ;)

Oh, and Nathanael had to "borrow" Grandmom's shoes to walk around. We laughed and laughed at his facial expressions, but I couldn't seem to capture the best ones.

Nathanael loved the "art room" at the Teague's house, and quickly decided that his favorite place was in front of the chalkboard easel!

We spent half a day at a park near their house (north of Seattle) and walked on the pier (saw a small dog shark!), played on the playground, and picnicked. It was great fun in a beautiful setting!

The boys all played really well together...and it was fun to see them get to know each other again, since it has been so long since t
hey've seen each other! They did all get a little rowdy, but for three little boys ages 2, 3, and 4 they didn't get hurt very often, and had lots of fun! Meanwhile we had time to visit with wonderful friends!

We did spend a few hours downtown Seattle, and saw the aquarium, where the boys all had fun checking out the octopus, seeing the sea lions, and running around.

We were sad to leave, but glad to have been able to visit, and were glad we could have a few more days with family in Spokane before heading back towards home.
