A sunny stroll.

On Bennett's actual Birthday, he woke up in a bad mood.

Fussy. Whiny, Crying. Pretty much for the first 5 hours of the day.

When I finally got him down for a nap- he woke up a different baby.

Happy. Smiley. Giddy.

So... Grandma came over and we decided to take advantage of the days. When you live in Seattle, it's best to get outside whenever its sunny cause you never know when the sun will show it's face again.

We started out getting some lunch, then just strolled through downtown Issaquah. And I have to thank my Mom for snapping a few pictures of me and the babe!! :)



 
And... he's asleep. I love that he'll still sleep in his stroller.


....................... and coming soon ..........................

The Valentines Day linky will start on February 1st, so be thinking about the one you love! :)

Aww! What sweet and fun pictures! :) My little sister (age 5) came over to the computer while i was lookin at them and said. "Oh...what a cute baby! his eyes are so big and blue!" then we got down to the ones of you and B and she said. "Aw...whos that with him?" i told her it was his Momma. She said, "Oh man...i thought that was his big sister!" :) Thought you might like to know that! :)
