It feels like summer has finally arrived in Bellingham and we are taking advantage of it! Sleeping has been a little difficult for all of us, but the sunny days are worth it. Friday night Edwin decided to put Liam in his winter PJ's for some reason and when I went to check on him before I went to bed I discovered that Liam now knows how to take his own PJ's off without any help. Poor little guy must have been so hot!
Saturday Edwin took Liam out on the Sound with our friend, Tom, and his son, Maxwell, to go crabbing. Liam LOVED the whole experience and now has a new little buddy just his size. Well, no kid Liam's age is really just his size, they are always quite a bit shorter. But fun, nonetheless.
Here is some video of the crabbing.
Then, Saturday afternoon we went up to Ferndale for the Annual Old Settlers Picnic. We had never been before and are making it a policy to go to as many of the festivals in Whatcom County as we can. Some have been disappointing and others have been way beyond expectation (we have developed quite a fascination with the Sumas Bull-o-Rama). Anyway, They had a little carnival, tons of food, a petting zoo, museums and cabins filled with interesting artifacts and, I'm sure, a lot more that we didn't see due to time constraints. But we did what we went to do, which was take Liam to the petting zoo. He loves animals and we thought it would be fun for him to be able to get up close and personal with some of them. He also loves slides, so we paid a ridiculous price for tickets so that he could go down a big slide a few times.
It was a big day of adventures for our little man, so today, Sunday, we are taking it easy at home, eating the crab the guys caught.
