Finally, some pictures of Jacob and Mommy!
Our family and the Kilborn Family went to the Torchlight Parade in Seattle a few weeks ago. This marks the start of Seafair, which is a month long festival. The parade was 2.5 miles long and was at night, so all the floats were lit up, which Jake loved! We got a great spot on the corner of Pike and 4th and the kids were great during the entire parade.
Jake waiting for the show to start! Wearing a free pair of sunglasses we got at the fair, he thought he was COOL!
This is the “Fat Albert” plane, it transports all the Blue Angels equipment (and the crew is Marines)!
The Blue Angels show – The F/18 can reach speeds just under Mach 2, about 1,400 mph! It was so much fun, we took Jake last year but he was still pretty young. This year, he loved the planes and the noise they made as they flew by.
Jake’s airplane we bought him at the fair, would have gotten him a Blue Angel plane, but it said Navy on it! :) Although, 2 Marines fly in the Blue Angels… maybe Nate missed his calling, instead of Motor Transport, he could be flying up there…
Last weekend, the Kilborn Family invited us up to Birch Bay for a 3 day weekend (yes, Nate actually took a day off work)! Clint’s parents, Laina and Mike live up there and welcomed us into their beautiful home. Kai and Jake had SO MUCH FUN together, it was a great family getaway!
The boys swimming in the toddler pool, Jake was loving jumping in from the edge (he didn’t even care if I was there to catch him). He did a great job going under water and blowing bubbles. In the picture above, he got so cold from being dunked and wanted some cuddle time to get warmed up! How can I refuse that face?!

Stefanie showing the boys teeny-tiny crabs.
We got to ride Thomas the Train while we were there! It was a 15 minute ride into the woods where they had staged lots of interesting things to look at – the boys enjoyed it!
Nice and Muddy!
You’d think they hadn’t seen each other in weeks!
Realizing for just a second that he was all muddy and wet… he looked at me as if “is this okay mommy?”
Stef, Kai, Nate and Jake going clam digging with their little shovels and buckets. Too cute!
The tide started to come in (we had to go rescue a few toys), but they continued to dig for clams.
Jake going through the loot (we left the clams on the beach).
Thinking he was being smart by crawling into our bed while we weren’t looking… sorry buddy, pack n’ play it is!
Jacob skipped his nap (refused to go down) one day, and here is the result… asleep while eating dinner, hamburger still in hand and he would chew every once in awhile.
Jake, Nate, Clint and Kai had a boys morning out, they went to a Toddler Home Depot Workshop and made their mommy’s this cute little message board. Of course, Jake just wanted to have hammer sword fights with Kai, but he did hammer in a nail or two. My first homemade project!
Jacob wanted his stuffed animals swaddled like a little baby all day long, he would sit and read books to his “baby” and rock. Time for a baby sister or brother?!?
We went to order Jake’s 2nd birthday cake and we bought him a blue dinosaur cookie, he wasn’t sure what to do with it… he finally bit the head off and was dyed blue for awhile.
He built this tower using all his legos, I just held in upright (you can see there is not much of a base). When Jake insisted that I let go, it fell apart and he cried – poor guy!
Jake got his 4th haircut today, he even got gel put in just like daddy does. I got him a Happy Meal on the way home because he did such a great job during his cut.
What a big boy!
