Hike, Pacie, Bed, Wedding, Tractor - by Brad

A couple weeks ago, Lindsey and Elliott went to Spokane to look for wedding clothes for Elliott (no, he didn't get married yet - see below). While they were away, Wesley and Spencer wanted to go hiking. I threw Spencer in the backpack and Wesley hiked all the way up Castle Rock. Here Wesley is resting half-way up...



One night we couldn't find a pacifier (or pacie as Spencer calls it), so we decided to put Spencer to bed without it. We were ready to do this ever since he turned two. I just sat him down, explained to him that we had no pacifiers, rocked him for a couple minutes and put him to bed. He didn't complain a bit. And that was that.

Since that went so well, we decided to bring down the "big kid bed" from the attic to switch him over from his crib. It works pretty well during at night, but at nap time he feels the need to get up... over and over again. His crib is still next to his bed, so he has had to use that a couple times during nap.

The first night, the boys were able to watch a movie in their room from Spencer's "new" bed...



Spencer's first night...



On Saturday, we went to Lindsey's cousin's wedding in Spokane. Elliott was the ring-bearer. This was his first time in a wedding...



After the wedding - Lindsey and her boys...



Spencer and his profile...

And a miscellaneous picture from yesterday. Yesterday afternoon (and today) we finally had a chance to relax. Lindsey was on the couch and Spencer was sitting in the window sill playing with his tractor. He was being cute enough to warrant a picture...

Elliott was such a little gentleman in the wedding, kudos Wes for making it up Castle rock, and Spencer is officially a big boy now.

I love the pictures of the three of them in the bed. It doesn't get much cuter than that!

and by pictures I mean picture. Hard to believe I'm a teacher =).
