Growth Plate

My son Ian....

Ian...

Yeah...this kid...where do I even start with this kid! First he has an appendectomy the first week of Kindergarten and just about a month after Middle school starts he ends up having a 5" screw put in his right hip because of a slipped growth plate!

I call this the Meyer's gene...well I didn't come up with it and I'm no relation to the Meyer's...I just keep insinuating myself into this family...those poor people!

It all started the last week or weekend of  August when Ian started gimping around...slightly at times or quite noticeably.  Now Ian is a little bit of a drama queen so I didn't think much about it and decided to wait and see.  Then after our camping trip to Ilwaco in August and BEFORE our hiking trip to Lake 22 I took Ian to the Chiropractor to get adjusted!

So he gets adjusted and he's 1/2 an inch out...kind of big deal but not too bad.  The Chiro says it's fine if we still go on our 5 mile hike that we…

Pumpkin Patch

It's that time of year again! It's time for the big round orange things...you know...pumpkins!!! This year was Eli's turn to finally have a field trip all his own!  Be still that child's heart! This was the very first thing he ran too...Grandma Lea would be so proud! He even managed to lasso the cow a few times! Impressive He's just so darn cute!
He couldn't wait to get to this part of the pumpkin patch! The Corn pit and that it was SO funny that he was playing the cows food.  "Wasn't that funny mom?"
Love the action shot though!
I did have to stop him from taking the corn home...he was caught a few times filling his pockets up.  I still ended up with corn in my washing machine.  Tricky kid!
The farm animals in no particular order but they are still fun to look at...not picture are the really fluffy bunnies and the grey kittens (thank heavens there were already spoken for...I think if there weren't some mommas would have walked off with some …

THE Infamous Hike

I know I've posted a lot of things and said a lot of things about our hike at Lake 22 in Snohomish, now I finally have the rest of the pictures to go with it. About time I know! I loved hiking this summer, not the complaining and the, at times physically dragging of said children to the hike, up the trail, down the trail, and then trying to keep up with them as they dash for the car, but just getting out in nature and doing something for me.   I hiked as a kid but like so many things for me and my memories, things I did as a kid always seems to have  some negative feeling/memory that is attached to things.  So it takes me awhile to get around to retrying things as an adult and remember I'm the adult here!  I think that will be a lifetime of constantly telling myself I'm the adult and in charge! So hike we did and I have plans for more hikes and adventures for next spring/summer!  The kids however, not so much.  I have found though that if they have hiking partners it goes…
