Poor Seamus (or Buzz) couldn't really enjoy his birthday on the actually day. We think he got the flu. They were both sick boys that day. He did rally to open his presents on his birthday. The next day we blew out the candles on his chocolate Buzz Lightyear cake. So he got a two day celebration!

Meghan and I stayed home from Trick of Trucks because she really wasn't feeling that great. She had diarrhea the whole weekend. Poor thing. The next day, she had to go to the emergency room and to get an IV because she was dehydrated. She is on the mend now, and back to her smiley self. Which makes us very happy.

My parents came for a visit since Brandon had to go to Europe for over two weeks. My mom and dad both came on a seperate week. It was neat for me and the kids to spend some one-on-one time with them. Both my mom and dad got to see Owen's school.
The week with my dad consisted of many trips to the local parks! We even spent a day at the zoo. The boys always love getting outside and playing. We took advantage of the nice days while we could. My dad did some work around the house which was a really big help.
The week with my mom included shopping, shopping and more shopping. We didn't buy much. We mostly just window shopped for things. It brought back some memories of when we used to go shopping with our Gammy. The three of us would window shop and get lunch. My heart aches because I miss my gammy a lot. And today, I really hate that I am so far from my mom. Although I know God has a plan and I am trusting in him.
I am so thankful that I got to spend this precious time with my parents. I am even more thankful that my husband is back safe and sound.

I know school has been in session for a month now. I just now realized that I never did blog about Owen's first day of preschool. That is right. We have a school boy in the house. He is going to Hand in Hand preschool at Generational Hope Christian Center. It is a very small school. We really like it though. Their main focus is Jesus. There is also a big focus on academics. He seems to be learning a lot. He really likes it. His teachers really do seem to care about him. They are so nice. Overall, it is a win-win situation. Here are some pictures from the first day of school!! (It was a pretty rainy that day!)

Saturday, we played at the Puyallup Farmers' Market. We window shopped, ate street food and had a relaxing afternoon. That night we went to BJ'S for dinner.
We went to the Seattle Mariners Game on Sunday. We sat in the Bleachers. We got video taped to be put on the scoreboard!!! This has never happened to me. What fun! I am not really sure if we ever made it up on the scoreboard because we were sitting directly under it. The boys weren't really interested in the camera. We tried to get them to wave, but they were unimpressed. They were more interested in the peanuts, red vines, hot dogs and pop. Who doesn't love Ballpark food??

(I think Owen is responsible for the birthday hat on Meghan!!)
Bybee Farms to collect some blueberries. This farm is at the base of Mt. Si. They have rows and rows of U-Pick blueberries. So we hunted and gathered and left with almost four pounds of blueberries. The boys always love an adventure. They really loved this one because it came with blueberries!!

This park is pretty cool right now. Since it is low tide, we got to walk where the water normally is. So we stepping over zebra mussels, sea weed, shells and other underwater specialties. We also watched some scuba divers in the water. The boys really liked it. We would have explored longer but it was pretty cool and rainy. It was still a fun family day!

My dad was such a big help around the house. He did tons of yard work, including cutting down our 4 foot tall weeds. He also helped me clean and organize our laundry room. When we were done the room looked twice as big. It is so nice! I actually feel almost relaxed while doing laundry.
We also drove into Seattle to see the Blue Angels practice. They were here for Seafair in Seattle. The boys really loved the planes. Although, Owen did say that engines were really loud. Seamus kept screaming "Airplanes" every time they flew by. It was neat to see all the tricks they could do. We probably got a better show than the people at Seafair. We had a perfectly clear day and it rained for all of Seafair!
My parents come back in September. So the countdown begins! Before that, a visit from our favorite Aunt Brigid. Isn't family great?

It was a fun birthday! It started with picking up Grandma and Grandpa Reilley from the airport! Then it was off to Target and lunch. We got pizza for dinner, since it was Owen requested! Of course, we finished with a COSTCO cake. He wanted a "dragon cake" from Costco. I would have loved to make him one, but this is what he wanted! It is the same cake Seamus got for his birthday. He has been talking about getting that cake for his birthday ever since he saw it. By the way, Seamus's birthday is in November! :)
It was a great day. I can't believe this sweet little boy is already four!

Meghan is fitting in very well. We are very lucky because she is a good sleeper and eater. She is a great addition to our family. We feel very blessed!
