Tyler turned 10 months on September 21st. We love our happy boy. He is learning and growing. Tyler was sooo picky with baby food that we started mashing and cutting up our food instead and he loves almost everything. His favorite food is spaghetti and meat sauce. He got a new tooth so he has 5 teeth now. He had a fever for four days but finally feels better. He loves to follow his siblings around and he loves to play with the dishwasher when I put plates and silverware in it. He used to be scared of the vacuum but now whenever I turn it on he crawls as fast as he can to me. Little cutie.
Last Saturday we went to the Salt Creek rec area in Port Angeles. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the view was breathtaking! We really live in such a beautiful place. We went on a short hike, looked at a cool bunker from world war II and the kids had fun skipping and climbing on the big rocks and bluffs. I love days like this, exploring and spending time together! On the way home we stopped by a fun park in Port Angeles and let the kids play and we also had dinner at a restaurant. Such a fun day!
Our crazy little Savy! On Saturday morning I was shopping for a little bit when I got a text from Eric that Savannah had cut her hair. Nicci found her alone in her room with a scissors and lots of hair on the ground. I was sooo sad because I love her long hair, especially her ringlet curls. We took her to the hairdresser and her hair is to her shoulders now. “It’s okay mom,” she kept telling me-haha. I hope her hair will grow out fast! I don’t remember cutting my own hair as a kid but I do remember cutting my brother’s hair one time, and I tried to hide the hair behind some toys in his bookcase. Hehe, my mom found out!! 😉
Every year I (Eric) go on a retreat to Doe Bay Resort on Orca Island with my company, TUNE. We call it Geeks in the Woods. The premise is to take internet into nature and geek out to tech presentations, hacking, and enjoying the great outdoors. This year was another amazing experience, despite some rain. Here’s the executive summary. Wed we took a charter boat from Anacortes, WA to the resort. Upon arriving we set up camp. Next we played Volleyball, Frisbee, bean bag toss and just hung out until dinner. After dinner there was a band and time to socialize. Some of went to the beach to view the bio luminescence (light caused by organisms in the sound when disturbed). We also spent some time in the hot tub before bed.
The next day was filled with good food, lots of tech speakers, and more music in the evening along with some console gaming. We also went on a Zelda-themed scavenger hunt that was a blast.
The last day was packing up, closing speakers, and a didgeridoo workshop, followed by a boat ride home that came almost 2 hours late. And now for some pictures…
Lunch on the way there. I had a Jalapeno Popper burger.

One day the kids dressed up with their friends. So funny.
Jordan and I built this puzzle together. There was one piece missing!!! aaaaaa
Yummy pumpkin blizzard from Dairy queen!
We had fun at the Silverdale waterfront park one day. We used to come here a lot when we lived in Silverdale.
Jordan built a train track all the way down the hall. He loves to do this.
Nicci and Kaitlin dressed up one of Nicci’s stuffed animals.
I love to watch the kids build things together.
Nicci’s “It’s great to be 8” necklace my mom gave her. She wore it to church last Sunday.
Nicci built this for Luna.
The neighbor finally came and cleared up the tree that had fallen into our yard during a windstorm weeks ago.
Savannah and I made some chocolate banana bread the other day.
Pics I took during Savannah’s swimming lesson. She cried a little the first time but now she loves it!
Jordan had his first soccer game. He scored a couple of goals and was so excited! It was raining on and off during the game and we were soaking wet when we came home.
Savannah and Chloe are so cute!
