Then finally to our place. On Monday we did end up with all 5 kids at our house so Melia and Erica could go work out and Erica was looking at some housing out in Tenino. Was a bit crazy but fun. Always nice to see my mom and I know she loves to see all the grandbabies.

Parker is almost 3 months now. And Brady is 2 1/2 months. There is still a big size difference, But Brady has gown alot in the past few weeks.
Parker continues to be an excellent sleeper. He has since he was just a couple weeks old. He sleep all through the night and will take two 3 hrs naps a day. He is most awake in the evening, which is nice because Nate gets to spend sometime with him. He is happy. Starting to coo and talk. Smile. Though he is always getting his tongue in the way. He is a big and a very strong little boy. He looks alot like his dad. I sometimes call him "little Nathan" Just wish I could see him more.
Brady is still battling acid-reflux. So he eats only alittle at a time and more often. This causes him to wake up every two hrs at night to eat. And he does not sleep well during the day either.But as long as he is held and/or being fed he is pretty happy. He is really making cooing noises and smiles. he does the big open mouth thing that Peyton did. Sounds like he is really trying to talk to you. Still light as feather. He is strong too. He can stand on his legs when you hold his arms for a few seconds. Even trying to walk up you.
Love to have the two boys together. They are both so cute yet so different. It will be lots of fun to watch them grow up. Parker reminds of a gentle giant. Brady not sure. Crazy like his brother probably. I still think Isabell will be the boss of them all!!!!!

Wanting to get out of the house last week I took Peyton and went to town to pick up a few things for my Grandma's 100th birthday party. Now Peyton can be a bit excited when he gets into a store with all that room to run in, so it was with a bit of apprehension and a hope to start teaching him to not run away from everyone ( Tressa and Dee Dee have a hard time catching him when he gets going) that we under took our adventure. No teaching was really needed as he did real well in the store even saying hi to folks as we walked around looking for things. In fact he did so well that we had to go to Jack in the Box to get some fries.

The family took its usual trip to Tum Tum on the Spokane River in August. We were a little apprehensive about this trip due to all the young ones in one house but it went well.
Peyton enjoyed being by the water and after warming up to it he liked being in it. He especially liked floating around as did Isabell. Madison liked to be in the sandbox more than the water.
The big girls got some water time but with the babies it was hard for them to play their usual games in the water and I think they were a little disappointed in that aspect. The boys being boys had to have some diving board play time. Of course Spencer supplied the laughs with his very personalized style. We keep trying to get him to embrace the air from the board, but he likes to play it close to the water.
Everyone had to get some tubing rides in here is Spencer and Melia. Jesse and Tressa had to keep the speed down. Nursing mother! Peyton wasn't to fond of tubbing. we had to cut his ride very very short!
We ended the week by going to my niece Kim's wedding and a family gathering
Everyone at the Sunday B-que at Tum Tum

In their PANIC!! they had forgotten to grab the key to the car. They did get the cash box which is a plus. They both seemed a little shaken. Police were everywhere. People were being ushered across the street and away from the building. Alesha decided that maybe she could get one of the officers to let her back in for the car key. Some how making it sound like we needed the key to the cash box sounded more urgent to her. But, her attempt failed. Got to give her credit for walking back towards the building and approaching a police officer though. Gutsy.
Melia felt really bad about forgetting to grab the key, but, she mostly just keep saying how she couldn't believe she forgot her book!!! Would have like to see Alesha go back and ask them to let her in to get her distressed sisters' book!!!!
Anyway.... More police came. They would shout across the road to all us little people with a bull horn. At first they said it was going to be a very long wait. We called lots of people and were even trying to get someone to bring us a key. Alesha thought we should call AAA for their roadside service. I explained they could get us into the car...but not provide a new key.
It was a really really strange day!!! Glad it ended with us all in one piece!! HA HA
