Summer Rewind

Sorry everyone for not keeping up with our Blog, we have been pretty busy this summer, so here is an overview of what we did. Jon and Brock took a day trip out to the beach. Brock had so much fun walking along, he found his shadow and someone’s sand bike to climb all over. Some of our good friends welcomed their twin boys, Micah and Mason in to their family. Brock was a little confused when we went over to meet then and there were 2 babies. Brock was following big sister Madison’s lead on being very gentle with her baby brothers. Brock has become the master of balance. On one of out trips to Ikea, we found a seahorse for Brock that he fell in love with. So we brought it home. Though he only use it the conventional way for a short time, he now loves to stand on it and ride it like a surf board. In June Ryan, my brother-in-law, married Megan. Brock was the ring bearer for their magical day. He did an amazing job, and had a blast. We took a couple trips to the Oregon Zoo. Brock loves seeing all the animals but more than that he loves the train. On out last trip to the zoo we went with our good friends Stacy and her son Finley. The boys had a wonderful time. There was even a snake to pet it the petting zoo. And yes I put my extreme phobia of snakes aside for my son so he could pet it. It is amazing what one can do for their children.We took a quick trip down to Roseburg to visit my parents Oma and Pop. We got to see the green bean teepee that Pop built for Brock. Brock also spent most of his time in his newly refurbished radio flyer wagon that I had when I was little. Brock calls it his choo choo. Brock also helped Pop dig some holes in the garden for planting seeds. We also attended the Hillsboro 4th of July Parade. Brock loved the Police bikes and the fire trucks. Papa also showed Brock how pop-it’s work and they were a huge hit. This summer Brock also got a pool. He has so much fun going down the water slide and splashing in the water. On July 25th Brock turned 2!! I can’t believe that my little baby is 2. He had 2 parties, one with friends and then one later that a small family party. His friends party turned in to a pool party because of how hot it was that day. He got a bike, stuff for his big boy bedroom, and a Cars tent. He has so much fun opening his gifts.
