Tate and I spent last week in Washington visiting Stacie and Whitney. We had so much fun! It was so nice to see them and spend some time together. And of course Tate had a grand ol' time destroying their house.
One of the sunny days we went to Port Townsend. We walked around the shops and soaked up some sun.
We ate at this restaurant. Best fish and chips I've ever had. Poor Tate, the sun was so bright!
We were fortunate to have a few sunny days while we were there. One of those days we went to a light house and sat on the beach.
Tate found the sand to be very interesting. At first he didn't know what to do with it. He put his hands in it and it stuck all over his sweaty little hands, he was just looking at his hand and then trying to eat it. After a while he figured out it wasn't so good to eat and was just playing in it.
This is how most if the week went, Stacie attacking Tate. After a few days he got use to it.
Tate wants to run every where! As you can see here, as long as he has hold of one hand he is running. He loved the beach and the sand.
Tate always has his feet crossed when he is sitting. Stacie and Whit thought it was so funny. If you uncross them, he will just recross them. I love that in this picture I have mine crossed too. Tate was loving all the time he got to spend playing with Stace and Whit's blackberries. He was very busy texting his friends back home and surfing the web.
Tate was hard at work every minute we spent at the house, unloading all the DVDs. It's a good thing they have a lot of them, it sure kept him busy! I'm so glad Stace and Whit are laid back and let Tate play with anything he wanted. He is now crawling so fast and was into everything! Tate can take about 4 steps on his own now before falling. I'll try and get a video of it to post soon.
This was taken the day we left. Tate had finally warmed up to the girls the last couple of days we were there, so they were sad to see him go. Stacie had worked that night and was passed out and I guess Tate was pretty tired too after our fun filled trip.
