Busy Busy Busy!

We have been out enjoying the last of the summery weather so I thought I would share some of our adventures with you...

We took Bennett to the Portland Zoo for the first time, and I wasn't sure if he would enjoy/understand it. He seemed to be having fun but I think his favorite part was watching all the kids watch the animals.

polar bears...
turtles on a log...
fish...
baby bird...

full belly and so relaxed...
...and he's out!
(notice the crumbs on his belly)
Last weekend we visited Mount St. Helens, unfortnately it was pretty cloudy so didn't get to see the crater. The whole volcano/national park was cool to see nonetheless.

the crater is right behind those clouds...
it's been 30 years since the eruption and everything is pretty green now, but check out the giant layer of ash on the ground...
Bennett had a nice little blowout right after we left our house so goodbye fashionable skinny jeans and tank top, hello cousin Lukas' sock monkey onesie and cotton pants that fit a 3 month old! (note to self: put a change of clothes in the diaper bag)
awesome view from the restaraunt we ate at...

Bennett has also started swim lessons. They are 30mins everyday, this week and next week. I'm not one of those crazy moms who start their kids early so they can get a leg up on competition for the 2030 Olympics. He just really enjoys being in the water and splashing.

How cute is the pool his lessons are at?!...
Mom, you're embarassing me. Stop it...
He loves to jump in...
September looks to be even crazier for us... I'm busy planning for Bennett's 1st birthday which is in less than 2 weeks, then we go camping, then my sister's birthday, then my birthday then hopefully some relaxing at Olivia Beach for a week. So busy, but so fun!

    it's at Sellwood Pool which is part of Sellwood Park...have you ever been there? The park is huge and amazing and I'm sure Marley could spend hours in it!
