Family Fun Weekend

This past weekend the whole Talen family was together, so we had a family fun weekend. Saturday we went to play some disc golf. It was quite a hilly course, so we all got our workout in pushing Joash around.
Joash staring his disc golf practice by chewing on a disc.
 Most of family, just missing Emil and Karisa. It was a lovely view from the top of the course. All of that riding in the stroller wore Joash out. He is taking a little snooze in this picture.

Sunday we went to the beach. I didn't take any pictures. But it was a nice day, just a little cool. Joash took a little nap while Opa pushed him in his stroller on the beach.

Monday the whole family went deep sea fishing. I was a little leery of this since the only other time I have gone deep sea fishing, I got really sea sick. Thankfully, it was a beautiful, calm day.
 Ready to fish.
 Joash did really well fishing. He didn't pull on the line too much. We were pretty successful, too. We caught several mackerel and a nice size cod.
 Most of the family again, just missing Tiffany this time.
Joash caught his Tante Reina! What a catch!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
