Like father, Like Son

Tyler LOVES trains just like his daddy.

We have Thomas the Tank everywhere in the house. So while we were away we have Thomas the Tank all over the house at my aunts. She even went out and bought more Thomas stuff and track so Tyler could play.

He are a few pics of Ty tinkering with Thomas.

I thought I had some pics of Matt tinkering with his trains but I don't. So you will have to wait for those.

I am going to try to get a few pics of Matt and Ty playing Thomas together.

Thanks for looking!

One crazy weekend

I picked up Matt at the airport and was in and out in record time.

Got out to Sayre around dinner time. So we checked in and ran to our friends house for pizza. The kids ran around like 3 nuts. Which Ty needed after the 4 hour drive. We head back to the hotel and went to bed around 900 because we were all so tired.

Tyler slept like a champ. The noise drunk people did not wake him. The alarm from the stuck elevator(sp) did not wake him. The drunk people at 2am did not wake him. But Matt I wake up every time he heard anything out of sorts.

So Ty was up at 730 and so were we. Matt showered first. Then I took Ty in with my to shower. We get out and I give Ty to Matt to dress. Ty jumps off the bed and runs into the bathroom and locks himself INSIDE. I get dressed Matt gets the maintenance man. While this is going on I hear a crash. I just know it is the glass from the vanity. Then I hear the scream and then the cry.

Now I am standing at the door pleading with a toddler to open the door. I just know he has cut him self some how. So Matt comes in then the maintenance man and then Ty opens the door.

I walk in and there is blood everywhere. I pick him up and look at his feet. He has about 7 cuts bleeding on his two little feet. I get him in the tub to rinse and check for glass. Matt starts cleaning up. I get his feet wrapped and in his socks and call our friends to see if they have a first aid kit. They do. So we finish packing and check out.

We cleaned his cuts out some more and my friends sister checks him out(she is a nurse) and he was fine. THANK GOODNESS!!!!

SO now comes the drive home in the what we thought was just going to be some flurries. Nope it started to SNOW once we got on the Turnpike. We couldn't even see the lanes in the road and no one was going over 30 MPH. Once we got past the Pocono Mts we were fine.

It took over 6 hrs to get home. NOT fun with a toddler.

So that was our fun weekend.

I am so happy to be home!!!!

We are not planning much travel in the next few weeks so we can recoup.

I have not blogged in like 2 weeks.

SO what have I been doing the past two weeks.

I spent a week in Washington state. I went to visit my aunt. I helped her with her grand opening show for the jewelry we sell. I also got to meet some gals from .

It was great to meet these ladies in person. I hope to catch up with them again the next time I am out west. I am hoping that it I can make it work out so I can crop with them!

Ty did great on the plane both ways!!!! I was so happy he did not freak out on the plane. Here are a picture if him on the plane and one of the two of us..

Once in Washington Ty did not believe is sleeping.

So this is how we spent most nights.

The flight back was one of the most turbulent flight I have ever been on. We bounced and shook for over 2 hrs of the 3 hr 40 min flight.

I am still trying to catch up on sleep and resting my banged up bones.

Halloween Fun

On Tuesday at 4:35 I decided we had to carve a pumpkin for Wednesday night. So off in the car Tyler and I went to find a pumpkin. We found a pumpkin finally at one orchard. It was not the prettiest in the back but it carved up nice.

Matt and I working hard.

Here is our fine work.

Tyler loved being a firemen. He had his costume on for 2 days. We had playgroup one day and then Trick or Treat the next.

So here is our little fireman.
