A Thanksgiving Snowman

When Thomas got up this morning he saw that it was snowing. He said "Let's make a snowman!", so after eating Thanksgiving lunch Adria took Thomas and Isaiah outside and they made a little snowman.

After building the snowman, Thomas helped me shovel the driveway. Isaiah wanted to shovel as well but we didn't have enough snow shovels.

We went to the Imaginarium this past week when I had a day off of work. We had a fun time. Thomas liked to play with the trains the most. Isaiah and Julian both liked to see everything that there was to see and play with.

For Halloween Thomas and Isaiah dressed up as pumpkins. Grandma Tingey made the costumes as well as matching pumpkin caps for Adria and me. The pumpkin costumes where very popular and unique as we were the only pumpkins that we encountered at the trunk-or-treat that we attended on Saturday.

A Trip to Oregon

We went on a trip to Oregon in early October. We were able to do a lot of fun things with the boys and with our parents as well.

While we were visiting Adria's parents we went to the Portland Zoo. While Thomas seemed to look forward to seeing the elephants the most, I think that he enjoyed the Saki Monkeys the most. When we were looking at them they were very active and running and jumping a climbing a lot.

Thomas and Isaiah also liked watching the beavers swim around.

Also while we were in Portland Adria and I were able to visit Adria's former co-workers at the Asian Health & Services Center.

We also went to Cannon Beach with Adria's parents. Eevn though it was a cloudy, windy day at the coast we all had a good time.

We did some fun things while we were visiting my parents too. We went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. We got there at just the right time because just as we got there it was feeding time for the seals and sea lions.

Thomas and Isaiah both had fun looking at the birds

Thomas liked watching the sharks swim overhead, while Isaiah wasn't quite sure what to think.

Thomas and Isaiah both liked watching the animals in the touch pool even though neither of them wanted to touch them with their fingers although Isaiah dipped his foot in the water.

Here is a picture with me and the boys at a hazelnut farm that we visited as well.

We also visited a the childhood home of the inventor of the Erector Set which has been turned into a children's museum. The boys had a great time playing with all of the things that they had there.

Thomas liked the rooms with the train the best. He liked to make sure that the electric train was going at all times. If the train wouldn't have jumped off the track it would have been much harder to leave because Thomas was having so much fun.
