My sister in law, Kelli turned 26 on February 11th! They came to Spokane to celebrate and we had a great time with them here. Not that Quincy, WA doesn't have a lot to offer in terms of birthday party celebrating, but they wanted to do something a little more exciting than cow-tipping for her big day!!! :) My mom and I took her for massages, shopping, and to lunch at Olive Garden one day and Allen took her out to Clinkerdaggers for dinner the next night. I think that she had a great time celebrating and I'm glad she did. Tucker was so happy to have Keyton here to play with. The weekend was full of wrestling, trains, cars, lots of loving on Grandma and Grandpa and of course, lots of treats.
Tucker crushing Keyton--poor kid, its not really fair when they wrestle. :)
Keyton had just had a bath one of the nights we were up at my parents house, and I guess Tucker wanted one too. The bath water hadn't been drained yet, and Tucker just hopped right in-fully clothed.
Needless to say, he was a naked man the rest of the night while his clothes were in the dryer. Here he is checking out the cream cheese pies (Kelli's favorite) we made for her. I just love the look on his face here.
Tucker loves his Papa.
Singing Happy Birthday to the birthday girl.
On another night they were here, Tucker fell on a book- A book of all things- and somehow totally cut his chin open and was bleeding. Poor little guy. He wasn't out for very long though, he didn't want to waste one minute of time with Keyton.
He was smiling too much for these pictures, so I told him to make a sad face for his owwwie. So, there you have it! :)
On the night that Allen took Kelli to dinner, we played over at our house with the boys. Its so funny how they are so entertained by the simplest things. They loved having Grandma push them around in a box!!! :)
Typical Tucker and Keyton playing- (Good thing Grandma got this on film!) :)
Tucker hitting Keyton.
Tucker getting in trouble for hitting Keyton.
Tucker saying he is sorry for hitting Keyton by giving him a snuggle.
Tucker tickling Keyton because he seems to think that that makes everything OK! (and luckily it DOES!!!) :)
Tucker playing with Keyton like a good little boy!!!
*disclaimer-it doesn't always end like this, although this is the best possible scenario.*
We also made some Valentine sugar cookies with the boys the next morning. They had so much fun. I love watching Tucker learn how to do new things like this. He was a very good helper and made a ton of cookies. Keyton on the other hand, lost interest after a few minutes.
They are so cute together!!!
We are SO excited that we just found out that Angie and Nathan will be adding another grandchild to the mix at the beginning of October!!!! :) We are hoping for a girl-this family needs some femininity after two years of trains, cars, balls and motorcycles. (And I'm not just talking about the two little ones!!!)
