It's a warm summer this year in Seattle and we're enjoying the outdoors with Owen and Josh. The nice weather also means we get to go do things that you can't when it's raining, like visiting Remlinger Farms in Redmond.
Remlinger is a berry and dairy farm, that also happens to have an amusement park. We went on a Friday and had a fantastic day. The park wasn't very busy, so we didn't have to wait in line for the rides. Owen started slowly with the Ferris wheel, moved on to the Flying Pumpkins, and was brave enough for the roller coaster! He rode the canoes, took a tour on Ike the train, played in the school bus, and ran and ran and ran.
Today is Josh's Half Birthday! I can't even tell you how fast that went, but not surprisingly I can't imagine what life was like before he was in our family. He is a very happy, smiley, laughy baby. He started rolling over this week, and he says "hi" to us now. Owen is Josh's favorite person, and the two of them together makes my heart happy.
Behold! Super Owen!
We're starting Josh on solid foods now. We've had a tough start! Josh hasn't really been too excited about avocado or rice rusks, but we seem to have a winner with yogurt.
And, finally, Josh and Owen and I went walking around Greenlake tonight after work, to enjoy the sun and get some fresh air. Sadly, this was the first time we've used the stroller with Josh and he only got to sit in it for 5 minutes before Owen wanted to ride in it instead. I strapped Josh into the Ergo carrier and huffed and puffed around the lake pushing Owen in the stroller. Both boys fell asleep about half way around, and that alone made the trip worth it!
