Hagen has now unfortunately decided that the high chair is for babies and he refuses to sit in it. He is now up to the bar on a booster seat that he has only fallen out of six or seven times. He can much more easily dump his food onto the floor and smear it all under the countertop here than he could from the high chair! This boy is a MESS but we love him so much and are continually amazed with how much he changes. His vocabulary is now growing at a rate of a word per day and he is starting to say the funniest things! His and our new favorite...."shoot" when he drops something or spills!
Every time I sit down at the computer Hagen runs to the bathroom to fetch a brush or comb. He then climbs onto the chair behind me and combs my hair. It is oh so sweet, but none too gentle! (My mom used to pay us to do this when she would do her bills:)

Cole happened upon the movie Peter Pan not too long ago and much to his father's dismay insisted that this is what he wanted to be for Halloween! Maybe it is the fact that the costume came with a sword (if you remember the ninja from last year:) Weston was positive that this was a very bad choice and that Cole would live with torture from others for years to come. Cole was very persistant though and at least the costume did not include tights!!! When the big day arrived though much to Weston's pleasure and Cole's dismay, eveyone thought he was Robin Hood!!
Kallie was apparently not the only girl in her class insistant upon being a zebra!!
After school we made our usual trip to G&G Munns' house and G&G Dayton's. It is always so fun to see what Granny D will dress up like!

The second day of our trip was on a Sunday. When we were planning the trip we tried to plan this day to be fun but still attempt to observe the Sabbath. After a very rough night in our room with Cole being up all night sick, I figured we would forego the plans to go to church. However Cole bounced out of bed at 7 am and was ready to go. We used all the city driving skills we could muster and with the help of a great gps app we found ourselves a local ward to attend. We were quite the sight all trudging in there during the opening song, but we were pleased to find out it was that wards Primary Program! We were all really glad we made it to church, it was a great way to start our day off!
After Church we had some excitement with our junky van which I regret to inform I didn't get a picture of! Peytan may or may not have earned herself a new nickname during the course of the morning also! After some chaos we finally got our hotel room packed up and had some lunch then we were off to the gorgeous Coronado Beach!
After an hour or two of playing and splashing it was time to head out and meet up with Weston and Bruce. I was excited to see Weston and very done being a single parent! I felt like I sent him a million texts and pictures and I felt so bad that he was missing so much. My kids later told me that the ocean was their favorite part of the trip!
By the time we were done at the beach the kids were completely soaked and full of sand. It was a lovely mess and in order to find their clothes we would've had to unload the whole van! So the boys rode from San Diego to Aneheim in their skivvys! I was dying laughing when I turned around to see these two have a conversation with each other using their belly buttons! Oh my gosh those to are funny!

The sea lion show was so fun! The sea lions honestly acted out the parts of characters. It was amazing to watch! After seeing all the exhibits and going on a couple of rides, there was only one thing left to do, Atlantis. That is the big roller coaster and all the boys wanted to do it. Cole and I stood in line and he took it like a man! It was a pretty intense ride and he was a little shocked but came out of it happy. He got pretty sick shortly after that though and slept through dinner. I figured he was just really tired since we had had such a big day and it was pretty late. We got him to our room and in bed and he was awake by midnight crying. This lasted most of the night and he kept telling me that his brain hurt. I think he may have had a migrane. After a couple of warm baths, some tylenol, lots of cuddles and a blessing from Uncle Coy, Cole was finally asleep by about 4 am. The next morning he was roaring to go by 8 am, and totally fine. We were grateful to have Uncle Coy there to step in and help us out when Weston couldn't be with us. I am so glad that Cole was only sick during the night because day two held just as much excitement as day one!
