More From the Emerald City

This post is going to be mostly pictures. I know that is what you all are mostly interested in anyway!
Brock is at Madison Beach Park. It is a really fun little beach with an awesome park close by. The beach is clean and they don't allow nudity or dogs, so YAY! It was a ton of fun. Brock loved the water and the sand. We are going to buy him an innertube so next time we go he can swim a little more. We plan on visiting this beach a bunch before it gets too rainy!

These are Tim's new Jammies from Pike's. 
Trust me, I'm a lawyer... Right
Family Photo at our new church. Which is huge by the way.
Eating pizza in Bainbridge with my parents. 
Ride 'em Cowboy! Brock playing cowboys and indians at the Space Needle. He chose a slow mount, a snail with spectacular horns.
He soon ditched the snail for a pig with wings!
And lastly, eating dinner in the revolving cafe at the Space Needle. It was really cool to see Seattle from way up. We might go back some time without Brock, because well as he wants to eat everything we eat, we can't really enjoy a meal with him. So until next time, Adios!

Happy 1st Birthday!

I cant believe that a year has gone by already. Brock is huge and loving life. He had a great birthday. We went to a BBQ at a friend's house. We gave him his first slice of watermelon. He loved it. Only problem was, was that Tim gave him a piece that was too big and he had trouble lifting it up to his mouth.
Can't quite get the watermelon to my mouth.
Problem solved! He couldn't lift it, so he just bent over to take bites out of it.
I remedied the problem. Smaller slice!
Opening my presents with dad. He did a good job of ripping the paper off.
Lovin' the sticky tape.
Here we are with his birthday cupcake. He didn't know what to think about the flame.
Repeat from the watermelon earlier. Just face plant into the blue frosting.
Yay! Blue frosting everywhere! 
He got cake and frosting everywhere. We got a video, but I can't get it to load right now. Hopefully it will work later!

Baby Got Back

Last night we went to the Mariners Game. It was LDS night, which meant that tickets were half price. So Tim and I both got in for $20. We usually think baseball is incredibly boring to watch on tv, so I wasn't expecting much. We actually had a blast. Baseball is so much more enjoyable live. Brock had a good time too, until he rubbed his eyes and got sunscreen in them. The poor guys eye's were red, puffy, and streaming practically the rest of the game. Note to self: hands don't really need to be slathered in sunscreen.
You can kind of see the puffy eyes. Grandma Alaina just sent him this baseball outfit that day. It is blue and teal striped. Mariner's colors! He looked like a true Mariner.
Getting a little tired of the baseball game at this point. 

This is some guy named Ichiro running to first base. Apparently he's a big deal. Every time he was in the field the crowd went nuts chanting ICHIRO! ICHIRO!
Tim and Brock at Discovery Park. Pretty view of the water behind them. 
Natural progression of Brock. Sitting.
The Crab Walk
Tah-Duh!!! He's a standing man. We are now just waiting for him to take his first steps.  

Every first Thursday of the month in Seattle, a lot of museums offer free admittance. We went and saw the Experience Music Project and the Science Fiction Museum. Both were extremely entertaining. I had no idea that so many bands started in Seattle. Jimmy Hendrix was born in Seattle. I saw a few of his guitars and his lyric notebook. It was very cool. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Sir Mix a Lot (Seattle's 1st rapper) all got their start here. I didn't know that. In the science fiction museum, I got to see the real Deathstar, ET, and a robot from Terminator II. I thought it was way cool!! I love Stars Wars and Sci-fi crap, so I was excited. I'm a nerd I know...

So, I hope you all aren't getting sick of hearing our adventures in Seattle. We do something new everyday and it feels like I take more pictures than I know what to do with. The result? Lots of blogging for you all to enjoy! Yay!  The other day we went to a place called Snoqualmie Falls. It is about 20 miles away from where we live. It is a awesome water fall that is like a huge tourist attraction. According to Tim it is taller than Niagra. We hiked down to the falls and somehow Tim talked me into climbing over the board walk and hiking down to the shore with Brock. I was pretty nervous to let him carry Brock down the rocky edge, but I am glad we did because he loved the water. Once we let him in, he did not want to get out even though is was FREEZING cold.

We saw this tree on the hike down. We thought it was kind of interesting so we took a picture. Washington is so crazy. You can drive 20 feet off the freeway and all the sudden feel like you are in the rainforest. It's great.
Picture of me and Tim on the look-out over the falls.

This is where we hiked down to the water's edge. It was neat. I wish we had brought our suits because it was like 99 degrees and a lot of people were swimming. It was a fun trip and I also saw a bat! It landed right by my foot then flew right by my head. Gross! We took a little video of the falls because we felt that we couldn't catch all the beauty in photos alone.
