Summer in Review

Relay for life
We all participated in The Relay for Life in order to 'kick cancer's ass' and remember those who fought this year.  It was hot, but we had a lot of fun.

The Beach
We had a 3 day get away to Lincoln City.  We spent time in the sand, the ocean and in the pool.  It was busy, relaxing and fun 

Splash Pads
We spent time at Splash Pads this summer, enjoying the cool water and lots of kid giggles and splashes

Parks and walks
This summer we spent a lot of time exploring Canby.  We found lots of parks to enjoy as well as our local bike store, music store and candy shop.

This summer we took 3 camping trips to Silver Falls, Fishermen's Bend and McIver.  We had friends camp with us or visit during each trip.  Great relaxing outdoor time.

Great Wolf Lodge
We took a family trip to Great Wolf Lodge and played nonstop!  Wave pools, water slides, kiddie pools, arcade fun and birthday presents.  Hard to top that weekend!

Hudson turned 3!

We also spent time doing some projects around our house, visiting with friends and playdates, climbing at Safari Sams and Bullwinkles, watching Toy Story 1 and 2 A LOT, playing cars, and generally relaxing.  We are not completely ready for a new routine or alarm clock, but, summer comes again in 9 months!!

Hudson 3 years

3 Years Old!!

Mom and Dad say that I am a delight and a terror wrapped up in one amazing bundle of boy! 


I weigh in at 38 pounds (94th percentile) and I am 37 1/2 inches..just over 3 feet (53rd percentile)
Doctor says I am doing great however my vision screener is questionable and I will be seeing an eye doctor on Friday for a follow up.  Mom is a little nervous, but I'll do great!
I love to climb, jump and run all the time; no breaks
CRASH BANG BOOM's make me happy
I love balloons, seeing helper cars, water, laughing and over all life in general
I am learning how to kick/dribble soccer balls and shoot basketballs
I have been working hard on potty training and am really close; mom just isn't quite brave enough to go without the pull up when we are out and about
Trains and cars and anything that moves, I will play with.  My parents even took me to the Molalla Train park and I got to ride a train!
I no longer qualify for speech, although I do assume everyone has the back story of everything I talk about, often confusing the listener as I will start mid way in the story.
My favorite foods are buttered noodles, apples, plums, peppers, carrots, warm cookies, Popsicle, chocolate raisins and Goldfish
I am gearing up to start preschool and am also excited to get back to 'Tammy days'
I am moving from the parent-child levels into independent classes for both Little Gym and Swim Lessons
I got a big boy bike that I am slowly trying to pedal.  I am also getting comfortable on big boy swings
I LOVE THE MOVIES Toy Story 1 & 2 and Cars 1 & 2 (I always told mom and dad no when they wanted to take me to see Cars 3)
I have a sensitive side and sometimes need to just escape and snuggle with mom, dad or meme.  
I get shy when I'm out in public or around people I don't know
I am starting to play with others at parks and play lands
Sharing is hard!!
I love to sing songs (Soft Kitty, Honey Milk, Sweety Pie)
Meme affectionately call me a demanding little boy which is quite accurate; but I try to use my manners and be as cute as possible when I am demanding
