Just arrived.
Clydesdale horse butts

 I took the boys to the fair this year. I am proud to say I only spent a total of 25 dollars :)! We saw all the animals and the boys got to pet a cow, pig, cat, llama, alpaca, sheep, baby goat, and piglet. They loved it. We of course got ice cream and shakes from the purple cow ladies.
Mommy goat and her twin babies two weeks old...
and we got to pet them!

for some reason the rabbit poo
was super interesting for Alestair.

reminded me of bobby.

There were so many baby animals this year! It was a lot of fun to see them Alestair loved the babies :)
Alestair's favorite cow!

Emmett's first ferry ride!

Waiting for Uncle Dave to get out of his meeting.

Ferry ride with Uncle Dave

All of us on the ferry.

Dave looks so great with a man purse...or my diaper bag

Alestair tried way too many times to go up to see the captian

Dave brought his friend Mike who was also at Dave's meeting
but didn't want to visit with the people who were just going to drink.


Emmett enjoyed his first ferry ride :)




Don't mind the strange people in the background.
Its hard not to notice us. We are amazingly good looking :)

He found his shadow!

Pugs for Grandma Butler



Dave and his friend Mike.
Super fun ferry ride after Dave's leadership training. We walked around the lighthouse and the beach at mukilteo while we waited for the ferry. We even got some ice cream thanks to Mike. It was about this time that I didn't realize Robert was on the phone and I needed to watch Alestair closer. He found a brown patch of grass and "watered" it. All on his own. He was proud and Robert was super imbarrased and there were people laughing about it. I however didn't even here the commotion for a while until I realized that Robert and Alestair were not right behind me. We were so excited to see him again. Alestair cried for a while the next day when he found out that Dave didn't stay here. He also cried on the way home not understanding me saying "Uncle Dave has to go to his house with his little boy"
