Last weekend, we went to the Bellevue Arts Festival. It was amazing! Artists from all over came to Bellevue to showcase their work. I was unable to take pictures of the amazing displays, but if we were on an unlimited budget, I would have bought the place out! There were oil paintings, photography, ceramics, wood work, clothing and so much more.

The Bellevue Police were showing their support and letting kids pose on a motorcycle.

We went out to PF Chang's for dinner, here is Jacob taking a drink. He LOVES drinking from straws, we don't even have to monitor him, he knows when to stop and swallow. He started this about a month ago and can't get enough of it. He is becoming addicted to iced tea (thanks grandma) and he loves Nate's Arnold Palmer (half iced tea, half lemonade - Nate's favorite drink). Jacob is becoming such a big boy!

Jacob is growing out of his favorite toy, he loves his bouncy!

We have been working on walking lately, Jake is really doing well. He is walking holding onto my hands and has taken a few first steps on his own! He is also talking A LOT, I cannot emphasize a lot enough. He talks nonstop - all day. But it's really cute (although I enjoy the quiet time during naps as well) he is saying ma-ma frequently and da-da at the top of his lungs. He is discovering putting sounds together and playing around with them. He makes me laugh!
