My Week and what I LOVE

A friend of mine wrote a blog about her family's week and included pictures of a few things she LOVES to do in a given week (at least I think that was the idea, right Susanne?). Since it looked like a fun and different way to update my blog, I thought I'd give it a shot.

I LOVE my mom and dad.

I LOVE going to the park. Mom had her 10 year h.s. reunion this past weekend and this next photo was taken at the family picnic. I didn't get to go to the main event (the picture of Mom and Dad above is from the night before), but I had fun playing at the park the next day! I especially had fun puddle jumping and was so dirty I had to take a bath before nap.

I LOVE seeing friends and I LOVE ice cream! These are my friends, Hunter and Hailey. Their mom, Mindy, came up from Texas to attend the reunion. Mom and Mindy go way back!

I LOVE my aunt Mary. This picture was not taken this week, but I did get to see my Aunt Mary a few times. She's like my other mom. :)

I LOVE Kate.

I LOVE going swimming with Mom, Kate and Sara.

I LOVE going to Nana and Papa's house and I LOVE my trains. You will rarely see me without at least one in my hand.

Well, that just about sums up my week! Hope you all had a good week too!

Summer = Swimming!

My Aunt Mary has a pool at her apartment complex so Mom, Kate, Sara and I went to check it out and do some serious swimming. That's right; there are no baby pools there!

Mom brought along a floatie car for me to relax in while in the pool. Kate and I thought it was pretty neat, but we mostly liked hanging out in the hot tub. It was just the right temperature (the pool was pretty cold!), definitely not too hot. It actually reminded me a lot of bath water.

If you're wondering where Aunt Mary was while we were all swimming... she was sunbathing and also took a few photos while we swam. Can't wait to go swimming again at Aunt Mary's!

Forest Park Hike

This weekend I went hiking with my Mom and Dad to Forest Park. Forest Park is the largest wooded city park in the United States. It runs right next to downtown Portland. Because it is so huge, we just hiked a bit of it, but I had a lot of fun seeing all that we hiked.

I get excited whenever I get dirt on my hands (keep in mind that my back yard is made of plastic) so here I am showing them off.

Yes, I realize it seems I take my trains everywhere.

I was really into the all the cool leaves, rocks, etc. on the path and preferred sitting on the ground to get a closer look.

The pretty leaves got me all excited for fall to be coming soon!
