My "sweet" Boy

Tatum was crying so I asked Ty, "What happened to Tatum?"
Ty, "She ran into my foot."
Mommy, "Did you kick her?"
Ty, "Yes."
Mommy, "That's not very nice, that makes Tater sad."
Ty, "Yes it is because I am happy because it made me smile."

We started a camping tradition last year with my family by going to Bridgeport State Park. Yes, I know there is nothing in the town of Bridgeport but the state park is beautiful. My parents and sister and her family stayed a whole week, we only stayed a couple of days. One day it rained and the other day it was perfect weather. Those two days were spent: roasting marshmallows, sleeping in tents with two small children...wahoo!, fishing...Ty loved driving the boat and holding the fishing pole, kayaking, playing on the beach, going tubing, hanging out at the campsite, playing in dirt, playing with the cousins. It was such a good time. Ty and Kendyl definitely had fun together.

All happiness as we headed out of town!

Waiting for a fish. We all know that waiting for a two year old is so much fun!

Driving the boat with Papa.

It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. They enjoyed playing on this chair until it flipped over on Kendyl.

Me, Ty, my mom and Kendyl kayaking

Ty and Kendyl just sat at the front of the boat and ate their lunches while we were at the beach.

Ty went tubing with Pat and Kendyl. I am totally impressed with Ty this summer. He has loved everything having to do with water unlike last year when we couldn't even get him to take a bath.

All of the cousins

Tatum has no fear of water so we had to keep her life vest on the entire time we were at the beach.

On the way back home we stopped in Newhalem to go to the bathroom and Ty spotted this train, and of course he LOVED it!

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary Babe! Last year we both forgot about our anniversary but this year we both remembered...we couldn't do that two years in a row. Thanks for being the best father and husband. I love you!

Grace & Ty

We had the Johnston's over last night for dinner and the two kiddos ended the night in the cute! This was Ty's first time in our big tub in our master bathroom and he loved it! I don't know why we haven't had him in the big tub before.

Happy Retirement Papa Swapp

After 35 years of teaching in Anacortes (I think all of them were at the middle school except for one) my father-in-law is now retiring! I am thinking a little selfishly, but now I have a full-time babysitter...just kidding. Actually Tom is going to watch the kids one day a week next year...with dirty diapers and all!

Tom-I will try to at least get Ty potty trained by the end of the summer for you but you now how stubborn that little grandson of yours is...I think he takes after the males in his life!

playing at the park

We spent a couple of hours at the Bowman's Bay playground today. Tatum and Ty loved climbing up the slide and sliding down on their tummies.
