Seahawks vs. Bears

This past Sunday we woke up bright and early to go to a Seahawks game (we were at a wedding the night before). I had set my alarm clock for 5:05am. I had been awake for awhile, and when I finally decided to look at the clock it was 6:08am! Turns out I set the time on my alarm, but I didn't actually set it - whoops! We wanted to be on the road by 7am, so we were in quite the rush. After all was said and done we left the house at 7:12am - not too bad for waking up an hour late!

Right before we got to Prosser we started seeing loads of hot air balloons. Some people were parked on the side of the freeway taking pictures, but I just took them through the window and windshield, lol.

We got into Bellevue (where a couple friends were staying at a hotel) at 10:45am - not bad timing for leaving a little late, stopping to eat breakfast and to nurse Carson, stopping at a rest stop where everyone there was in either Seahawks or Bears jerseys, and finally stopping in Issaquah to get gas and beer.

Pictures were in order when we finally made it to Qwest Field (darn Seattle traffic heading to the game, lol).

The boys were actually doing really well at the game...that is, until Carson took a header off the seat into the concrete below. Luckily I had a cup holder thingy down there which helped break the fall. Carson is my comfort nurser, so I did just that, and he was back to normal. =)

Carson still hadn't taken a nap (other than maybe a 20 minute one in the car before we stopped at a rest stop, and he woke up), so I decided to try and nurse him to see if he would fall asleep, and he did. You may be seeing that I have a different jersey on. Right before halftime Chris went and found green jerseys for us, and after Carson was passed out I went and got green jerseys for the boys (a few sizes too big so they can wear them for a few years).

Seattle skyline again, but zoomed this time

Jaden hadn't taken a nap at all. He was super, super tired.

Carson wasn't a happy camper, because he wanted down to roam around. No clue what Chris is doing in the picture, lol. I think maybe he was mid motion?

It was a very long day. Usually putting Carson on his back wakes him up, but not this time. We had gone to dinner with our friends after the game, and Carson inhaled a chip when he took a drink of milk, so he ended up vomiting, poor guy. He got it all over his new green jersey, too, so no pictures of him in it.

Wedding fun

This past Saturday was our friend's wedding. The colors were a couple shades of purple, and I found some suits for the boys that would be so cute! Chris was the Best Man, so he had to be there quite a bit early (for pictures, and whatnot), so I got myself and the boys ready alone. Here they are in their car seats headed to the wedding!

At the ceremony neither boy wanted to stay still, so I ended up standing with Carson on the side (ceremony was outside). Carson didn't like that, either, so I put him down and chased after him. In doing the chasing/picking up/putting Carson down, I dropped my camera. It totally doesn't work correctly anymore, so I am apologizing for most of these pictures' qualities.

As soon as we got to the reception (same place, just inside) Jaden never really left the dance floor...not even while the banquet staff was fixing it.

He was having the time of his life.

He even found some girls to flirt with (who ended up being mean to him)

Jaden was copying everything this little girl did (except showing his underwear, thank goodness).

This girl then took Jaden by the feet and drug him around in circles around the dance floor.

The other groomsman took these pictures of us =)


I finally let Carson run rampant, because I was tired of him either screaming to get out of the highchair, or wiggling out of my arms. He was very happy after I let him do whatever he wanted.

He was infatuated with the DJ lights

This girl adopted Jaden after the other little girls ditched him.

All the grownups loved Jaden

Carson was apparently trying to do the Macarena

Both boys in on the Macarena action

Carson loved the speakers. He went up to them quite a few times and started dancing.

Everyone loved Carson, too =)

Jaden was going up to this little girl, and Carson was following him.

I had been blowing bubbles, and I was trying to get a good picture of Carson chasing them, but by the time I snapped a picture the bubbles were gone, and Carson was coming back to beg for more.

"Say cheese, Mommy! Click!"

Climb, climb, climb!

Carson has been climbing for some time now, but recently he has been trying and learning all sorts of new tricks. These are his latest:

He wanted the clips

He wanted the clips so bad he went up the other side of the easel after me telling him no and moving him.

He really wanted Jaden's night light

By the time I got back in the room with the camera he was on his way down. He was peeking out the blinds.

Now he's going for bigger and better things...

...the cat.

He was so proud of himself for finally getting up there. So proud that after the cat had jumped down he decided to stand up and reach for the lamp in the corner. I didn't get a picture of that, because there was no way I was letting go of him!
