A quick drive to the coast...

On Sunday we awoke to the most amazing weather... it was perfect, warm w/ a slight breeze, and nothing but blue skies for as far as the eye could see!  We got ready for the day and decided to head to the coast!  I can't explain how it is for Micah and I to come around a bend in the road and see the ocean... its like coming home!  Neither of us realized we had been holding our breath, but we had... the ocean for us on a perfect day is pure bliss!

Mase just getting his feet in the sand
Working his way to the water

This was what we saw the whole time... the back of Mason running towards the waves
And again!
Daddy to the rescue!!

We didn't stay at Heceta Head for long... but it was so fun and completely rejuvinating!  Now someone explain to me why we don't get more visitors?  (could it be the rain?)

Pie for breakfast?

I bought a pie to share w/ some girlfriends, we didn't finish it and of course I forgot to put it away!  The next morning, Mason decided Chocolate Satin would make a great breakfast...  I would agree but if I do my mom card will be revoked!

He was loving life!

Winner Winner chicken dinner!!!

A friend of mine from High School had a give away and I won!!!  WAHOOOOOO!!  I really love winning, thats probably why I have a slight addiction to scratch tickets (its and 2-3 dollar a month habit).

I met nichole through her awesome family!  She was a few years behind me, but I remember her as being a very positive and out going person!  One of those zest for life people... she has an adorable little family and just had her 2nd little boy (I've been watching her family closely to see how having 2 goes).    Unfortunately, her blog is private, but trust me her little family is adorable!

Thanks so much NICHOLE, I can't wait!!!

Nichole is making me a cute carseat cover!!  YEAH!  It will look something like this!!

A little mud never hurt anyone

The weather has been wonderful in Eugene and it seems we have sunshine every other day (for Eugene thats amazing!)  Although we have sunshine there is still alot of mud, and apparently my little man is a mud magnet.  He walked out side and was instantly digging in the wet dirt, I try to pick my battles and dirt is one I will forfeit immediately!  He was so happy for an hour... whats a little dirt between buddies!

He looks a little amazed that I'm not pulling him away

I was in the kitchen with Mason and he was trying to show me what he wanted to drink, milk NO, juice NO, water NO... he was killing me and getting more upset as I offered choices (why can't I just read his mind).  He flung himself against my leg whining, and then slid down to the ground taking my lounge pants with him.  He instantly stopped boobing looked at my pants puddled around my ankles and then up at me and very loudly said "UHHHOOOHH"!  He jumped up from the floor and ran to living room, grabbed the bag of Mini Cadbury Eggs we had been sharing and brought them to me.

I laughed so hard I almost cried! 

Then I realized he could have been insulting me... dang little stinker!!

I just picked a huge booger out of Mason's nose, I showed it to him and he leaned over and ate it, made a face and spit it out! Maybe he won't be one of those kids who eats their boogers.  Its all about the little successes, right!

Mama's little helper???

Mason is big on helping me, he will load the dish washer w/ his toys, sweep the walls knocking down all my frames, and now he is big on emptying the vaccum.  How is the world did I get so lucky?
Ohhh yuck!!!

I caught him in the middle of digging for some of his fish crackers... UGH!!
