Recent Happenings

Here are a bunch of random pictures of our life the last few weeks. Okay so it's mostly Hank's life but that what most people are interested in anyways.

This is the face we usually get when we pull out the camera. He's not really a fan and tries to figure out what you are pointing at his face.
Whenever Tyson is home there is a lot of father/son bonding which I love. It's so great to see Hank having fun with his dad. Tyson is so much better at getting him to laugh so I just sit back and watch.

Hank loves to "fly" through the air. Actually he just loves to be held in the air. He wraps his feet around your arm and holds on tight, which is good for the crazy rides Tyson gives.

Hank also likes to be tossed in the air. We told ever really let him leave our hands but he loves it.

My two boys just hanging out.

Look at the smile. My boys are very handsome.

Hank is usually in this position, at least until he accidentally rolls over. Then he gets mad.

Look Mom I have toes!

He's favorite again. We can't put him in pants because then he can't bring his legs up. So usually is just in a onesie.

This little kid has been eating so much. He loves his solids and so far hasn't really turned down anything although he does have his favorites: pears and applesauce.

The other day Hank was playing on the floor while I cleaning up alittle and when I came back into his room this is what I found. I thought it was so cute I had to snap a pic.

When I first get up in the morning I prop Hank up in the middle on the bed while I get ready and I looked over and he had laid down and was watching me through the mirror. So cute.

Fish Hatchery

Yesterday Tyson's aunt and uncle, Brett and Jeanette, took us to the Fish Hatchery to see all the salmon. It was pretty cool, I've never been to hatchery before. Now if Tyson was posting he could tell you what the salmon count is but I really have no idea. So all you get from me are pictures.

In front of the fish ladder...the fish have to swim up it.

It's kind of hard to see but there was a ton of fish, and they were huge.

Inside there were windows you could look through and see the fish. Hank loved it.

This sturgeon was playing peek-a-boo with us. He kept sliding back and forth.

It's again hard to see but the sturgeon in the lower right corner of the window.

A couple of the big fish. They were basically the same size as Hank if not bigger.

Hank and Daddy checking out the big fish.

The Sturgeon

This is at the fish hatchery. Once the fish come up stream there is this wall. There is a current coming through the wall so the fish know that there is something on the other side and they really want to get through, so they just sit there and jump into the wall.

Look how big they are!

Tyson in front of the holding tank.

Again hard to see but these fish are swimming up stream to the wall.

Now this is Herman the Sturgeon.
He is about 70 years old, weighs about 450lbs and is about 12 feet long.

Tyson's trip to the beach

Tyson went to Cannon Beach last week with his classmates. They went for a professionalism about fun. They left Thursday morning and got back Friday night. They even got to have a sand castle competition. I would tell you more about the pictures and what was going on but unfortunately Hank and I had to stay home, so take the pictures for what they are.
