Is summer here yet?

Spokane is usually really hot in the summer time. And June is supposed to be summer! We'll we've had a hit and miss month of June in terms of weather. On Saturday J.D. and I took Mason to the pool for the first time and he loved it! At first he was little hesitant, but then he started smiling and laughing. We're planning on making the pool a regular occurrence for our summer months!
Just two days later on Monday it was pouring down rain. Mason loves to be outside so I decided to get him all bundled up in his rain gear and go outside. Our neighbors had some heavy equipment digging a big hole in their backyard for a pool so we went to check out the cool machines. He loved watching it and he loved the rain too!
Then, two days after the crazy rain it was nice again so we went to the pool with Autie Hannah and Grandma Mishal. This time we got his floaty toy blown up and he went floating.

Meet Ginny!!

About a week ago we flew over to Seattle to visit my family and meet my brother and sister-in-law's little 2 month old daughter, Ginny for the first time. We had a blast catching up with them and sharing converstations both as new parents.
Here is our little guy (well really not so little) taking it all in.

Mason loves to look out the window or be outside. If he is fussy just take him outside and he calms down. He pretty much looked out the airplane window the whole time during both flights over and back from Seattle. He's just like his daddy...loves to be outside. :)

Mason is a good eater...he'll even eat the table...just kidding. I was feeding him some food when we were out to lunch and he thought the table would taste good too I guess. Probably not the most sanitary thing to be sucking on, but oh well, it makes for a cute picture.

The three of us walking in downtown Bellevue. It was a beautiful day!
Mason loves to play with Starbucks cups. He likes to put the straw in his mouth but hasn't figured out how to suck any liquid out of it.

Here is a picture of Ginny. She is so calm and sleeps a lot. But when she is awake she smiles all the time. We had so much fun with Chris, Lindsay and Ginny... and my parents. It probably won't be until Christmas before we are all together again. By then Ginny will be crawling and Mason will be walking. They won't be so little anymore and will probably be a little bit more of a handful.

Photos of Mason at almost 6 months

Old videos and photos...

This is a video of Mason rolling over for the first time at 4 months. He is now almost 7 months and hardly ever rolls over. The most common place for him to roll over is in his crib :)
