cole had a great time each morning and evening going to the barn to see the horses. he thought he was a big help by sweeping the barn, feeding the horses carrots, and playing in the rocks.

we took one day trip to seattle. of course cole visited pike place market and ate some yummy food. but a trip to seattle just isn't a trip with out a stop to the space needle. we went to the space needle and looked at it then enjoyed the rides at the bottom of it!

aunts marys

cole and i took a trip with grandma kay to go visit aunt mary. cole did really well on the very looong flight out there. it helped that we were able to fly first class though!! aunt marys house was beautiful and cole's dream home. it came equipped with a pool, lots of rocks, and even horses! there was even time to have some baths in the sink. on eof his favorite parts of the trip though was the place we ate at near the local airport. he was able to eat and watch the planes and jumpers all at the same time!
