He has had so much fun splahing and playing in it and I know it will provide hours of summer fun! I have to admit I really like playing in it too...my favorite is that that "glacier" to the right is a waterfall and I like to let the penguin slide down it :) hahaha!

At 17 months you are hilarious! You are into everything just as you have been for quite some time :) You are a little explorer and you are happiest outside. You still love to sniff the flowers and you have started taking our hands and holding it and walking with us. Melts my heart every time and I will go wherever your little hand takes me. You love your cozy coupe car and the feel of the wind on your face.
You have started talking up a storm and though maybe not everyone could understand what you are saying, I do! You say (and sign) more, you say dada, momma, diaper, dog and you are starting to say something for Nonny, NeNe and NaNa! You know all of your body parts (though the knees and elbows mess you up a bit!) and you wash your body in the bathtub. You do great drinking out of a cup with no lid and have totally mastered stealing all of our cups, especially daddy's!
You have nice manners totally have "please" down and we are working on the signs for "help" and "thank you". You are starting to say the word and sign the word...and I love it! Your new favorite spot in the house is the window seat upstairs, you like to "knock" on the window when you see someone outside.
You LOVE, I mean LOVE trucks! You are just mesmerized by them and want to get as close as you can when you see one. You could also sit in the front yard on our laps watching the cars for hours. You climb on and over everything - you are so good at getting on and off the window seats, bed and couch. You have started a new routine when you wake up - you dance in your crib for a minute and then hand us your blanket, monkey and bunny - get out of the crib (I lay on the floor) and you sit in your chair next to me and we read books.
You pushed me out of this picture so you could "pose" by yourself! You are a ham and we love it :) You were so good (for the most part!) on this trip and you loved seeing your Uncle Davey. You missed your G on Wednesday morning because she had the pleasure of staying in the room with us all weekend!
We had such a great time at gradaution and we are so proud of you Uncle Bubba! After a busy day of graduating we were off to dinner and the next day...Glacier National Park!
We had a great group of people heading to the festivities, my mom, Connor and I (Bj had to work), Auntie, Aunt Von, Uncle Mike, Uncle Bill, Uncle David, Mp and Gerard! It was a blast, I don't think anyone had anything less than a great time. Well...I take that back. Connor Francis was so great for most of the trip...We left St. Louis after waking C up at six, flew to Minnesota, had a two hour layover, flew for 2 hours and 40 minutes to Spokae and drove three hours to Missoula, Mt. PHEW! Are you tired thinking about that? I am tired after living through it and writing about it :) He was great but by the time the car rode rolled around he had had enough and cried the whole three hours from Spokane to Idaho to Montana :) Sorry Mom and G! :) Other than that he was great and we took in lots of sights. I am going to let the pictures to the rest of the talking...

We were goofing around in C's room and I started snapping some pictures. He was being a Ham with capital H and I just love the little pictures I got of this sweet heart :) I hope you all enjoyed your mother's day and celebrating all the sweet momma's in your life!

Cheesing before going out to breakfast!
Showing off the new swim trunks, thanks Aunt Steph!
We had the pool to ourselves and he LOVED it! Especially jumping off the side into momma and daddy's arms :) That was our weekend, we hope you had a good one too!
