Teagan calls me "Mama" and he calls James "Da-Go", why well, because he is always "going". Going to work,going to the store, going to take a shower. So he is known as Da-Go.
Today Teagan did not want James to go to work. He held onto James for many minutes, and almost made him late for work. I quickly grabbed my camera and took these pictures.

This year Teagan was "Squirt," the turtle, from Finding Nemo. Although, most people guessed a frog. We walked downtown Astoria, in the rain, but what do you expect for the Northwest in the end of October. Teagan had fun looking around, I think he was confused about why all these people were dressed strangely.
After the downtown trick-or-treating, we went over to our friends house for dinner. Teagan and Kamryn played and we got some pictures of them int their costumes.

Someone is ready to go!

James and Teagan before the rain started.

Quick picture during the downtown experience, in between the showers.

Yes, Teagan is under there somewhere.

Teagan found a treat.

One for each hand.

Kamryn and Teagan outside Kelli's house, and what you don't see is that it is absolutely pouring and I am getting soaked trying to take the picture!

A turtle and his princess!

We had all of 5 trick-or-treaters, but we were ready for them!

Teagan and Kamryn

Kamryn is about 6 months older than Teagan. She is the daughter of my good friend, Kelli. Kelli and have known each other for about 15yrs, and it is fun to have kids close to the same age. Kelli and I walk mostly everyday and we push our strollers so that Teagan and Kamryn are side by side. They play with each other, fight with each other, learn to share together, and also have time-outs together! They are very cute figuring life out together. Here are some pictures from the other day and Kelli's house.

Kamryn watching Teagan hold the shovel.

Kamryn being cute! "cu-te"

I love this squatting shot.

Playing in the dirt.

Kamryn matches her house.

Where did she go?
Notice: the shovel still in hand.

After a hard afternoon of playing, it is bath-time!

My brother got Married!

Adam tied the knot with his bride, Ashley, on August 21, 2010. They got married in Bend at the Awbrey Glen Golf Club, Saturday. James was a groomsman, Teagan was the ring bearer, and I was a bridesmaid. We all had a nice time and it was fun to be able to share their day. Teagan, however, stole the show when he stopped to smell the flowers along the aisle.
Congratulations you guys!

Nice cake.

Ashley, awaiting her groom, for the before pictures.

Adam, the groom, awaiting his bride.

I asked Adam to get a picture of us, I guess he was nervous 'cause he missed half of his face.

James stuck his finger in Teagan's mouth, which he then bit. James yelled, and Teagan laughed.

Teagan tossed the pillow (no the rings were not attached) and strolled on down but got distracted....

He stopped and smelled the flowers at each row! Super cute, he stole the show!

And they lived happily ever after........

Wow, I'm behind!

So I am waaaay behind on the blog, I apologize. It has been a busy summer for us. We have been to Bend, Oregon a few times and down to California. You saw the first part of our trip to California but missed the second part. The second half, we stayed at my grandma Fran's house in Los Altos with my aunt Kathy from Nevada and my mom came down as well. Here are some pictures from our time down there with them.

Ah, yes the hose.

My feet.

Hey Daddy!

Pointing at James and Kiely.

Teagan checking out the crab pool my Aunt Kathy bought for him, just his size.

Big smiles!

Tickle tickle!
