Watermelon Crawl

Well not really watermelon but Tristan did learn how to crawl. He has been doing the army crawl for quite a while now and was getting pretty good at it. On our way home we noticed that he had started crawling on his hands and knees. I was so excited. I guess he first did it when we dropped Zoe off with Chanel's mom but I didn't notice until we let him play in the mall's play area. I am so proud of him. Now I guess the next step is walking!

Family Visit

This past week Tristan and I went to the Tri-Cities for a visit. Mathew had to go to school so he had to stay home. :( Dad and the girls came up and we rode back with them. We got to town just in time for Travis's Baptism, which was awesome. I am so glad that he decided to get baptised. It was wonderful to be surrounded by family and get to feel the special spirit of a baptism. He got confirmed a member the next day at The Singles Branch, which was nice because I got to see some old friends.

The rest of the week consisted of playing millions of Scrabble games, shopping and going out. We got to visit Great Grandma and we even got to visit Grandma Wick's work and see all the buses and meet her co-workers. It was great to see everyone but we missed Mathew.

Alex and Chanel brought us home and stayed over until Saturday. We looked around with them and then went bowling. It was so much fun! It had been such a long time since any of us had been bowling. I was kicking everyones butt at first but then I came back to earth and Chanel ended up beating us all. The second game the boys were officially warmed up because it was a battle between the two of them. Alex ended up winning the game but we all had a ton of fun. I think we should go bowling more often. I had forgotten how much fun it was.

Now we are home. Tristan got his first cold the last day we were in Tri-Cities and has since given it to me and Matt. So now we are resting at home. We are slowly all getting better.


Well, this post is way late. This year was Tristan's first Halloween. We went downtown to get him a new costume because the bat one was not crawlable. He was a Penguin and a rather cute one at that. We bought him the costume for five bucks and then decided to let him wear it, since it was Halloween and all. As we were walking through the mall we got stopped and given a $10 shopping card for having our baby dressed up. Then they told us about the costume contest. We stuck around for the hour it took and we ended up winning! The prize was a $50 Macy's gift card. It's was awesome.
Later that afternoon we went to the church for some Trunk or Treating. It was fun to play the games and see all the cute costumes. Since Matt was at work Tristan and I went to my friend Kathryn's house for dinner. It was lots of fun. The best part was that Matt got off early enough to join us once dinner was ready. It was a great Halloween.
