Kla Ha Ya Days

Saturday morning we went to the Kla Ha Ya Days Parade! Declan loves parades so we made sure to get there in plenty of time to get a great spot at the start of the parade in the shade!

Since we were at the start, Declan got a ton of candy and was thrilled with his haul. Wesley sat quietly in the moby wrap and took it all in.






Eventually he went to stand with Daddy in the shade. Daddy fed him and then he threw up all down Brad's shirt! Yuck!

After the parade, Declan walked on the river trail with Mao and Papa while Wesley and I relaxed in the shade. Then Declan found a bouncy house and popcorn!


Once we convinced Declan to leave the bouncy house, we walked around the street fair and then headed home.

In the evening we went to the one year anniversary of 20 Corners with Marcy and Rick. Rose also joined us for a little bit.

I had my first beer since November. It was delicious. We listened to live music and visited!

Worn out!

After a busy week at VBS, swimming lesson and Pop's birthday, Declan was totally worn out on Friday. He kept telling me his feet were so swollen from being pregnant that he needed to rest on the couch. 



Saturday he felt crummy too and wanted a quiet day at home. Sunday he threw up for the very first time. Then he was unhappy that I had him rest with a mattress pad on the couch.

Slime!

Declan and I had a quiet day at home today. We put together some freezer meals for after the baby is born. We played Legos, Candy Land, go fish and more. Before his nap we practiced writing the letter D and spelling his name. We also searched for the letter D. Then we made SLIME out of glitter glue. It was a lot of fun!

Edmonds Festival

After Cars 3 and a short rest, we headed to the Edmonds Art Festival. Declan told us he hated festivals and didnt' want to go, but as soon as he got there he had so much fun! We managed to look at a little bit of art, but mostly Declan led the way. 


Here he is eating Almond Joy ice cream from Lopez Island ice cream! It was so good!



Next we went inside and Declan created a lot of art including water color: 



Next he used stamps to create art in clay. He made an octopus, shark, sea horse and more! We got to bring it all home! 





We ventured back outside and Declan did the climbing wall! 




Declan was starving by this point so we went to Las Brisas for a delicious shrimp fajita dinner before heading home. 

Father's Day

After church on Father's Day, we went to the Everett Children's Museum. Declan and Brad had a great time running around playing trains, playing with the water tables, mini golf and more!



Declan and Brad were having water races! Brad kept losing!

Random Fun

Declan fell asleep in the car on the way to swiming! 


Helping Daddy fix the deck is hard work! He had to take a rest in the yard!


 Brody was the deck repair supervisor! 

Declan loves to help make dinner. Here he is preparing onions and green peppers. 



Sometimes he wears his underwear on his head... 


Declan is an amazng Lego builder. He made me a little horse! 



Declan really had to go potty in the car the other day. I had to pull over on the side of the road and he went in this water bottle. He nearly filled it to the top. His Uncle Todd was very proud! Gross, I know, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Sorticulture

Declan, Mao, Paula and I went to the Sorticulture festival in Everett. We looked at lots of garden art! 
Declan liked seeing the dinosaurs and dragons! 




We had to take a few time outs to play at the playground! 




Declan was so excited to find these giant chairs! There were three chairs built for giants. Each one had a star wand that Declan got to hold and wave around! 





The playground has a new sandbox that Declan played in! 


Declan got paint a flower pot, make a butterfly feeder, paint a rock and more fun activities! 

Of course we had to have some Lopez Island ice cream at the end of  Sorticulture!
