The next day we attended the Harvest Festival at our church. It was fun to take Riley dressed up as a little giraffe, even though most of the games were not quite age appropriate for her yet. She did, however, win the raffle so her and Daddy picked out a little ball. She has already eaten a big chunk out of it, so I think it was a good pick.
Here is Riley sitting with a few of her friends - Willa, Asa & Lola.

her main focus these days to get on the ground and show off her walking skills, as well as pick everything up and thoroughly investigate it. it made for a slow walk back to the car! but we were in no hurry, as we were just enjoying our time together and our spontaneous little jaunt. it felt great to break out of routine and spend some extra time with tyler. these times together can really rejuvenate and refresh the heart. and better yet, riley went right to sleep tonight, the best treat of all!

crawling after e/o around the house and toys, toys & toys everywhere.
sunday morning bath, breakfast at old town cafe and then a goodbye to our dear friends!
don't our babies look like little twins???
the bellingham traverse was a few weeks back. we were lucky...it was a beautiful, sunny day. i started "team spork" off with the 5.5 mille run from downtown, along the waterfront trail, through fairhaven and up to lake padden. i passed off to tyler, who rode his mountain bike around the trails of lake padden. i waited and was able to see him finish and saw him tag off to kevin - a 17 mile road bike ride around lake samish. then to leah, a 3 mile trail run who passed off to the final leg...bret on the 4 mile kyak leg. we were all waiting at the end to see bret finish, then ran (babies and all!) the last .5 mille to finish together downtown. it was a really fun day - -full of exercise, cheering, hanging with friends and enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery of the pacific nw. sidenote: our two cheerleaders, pictured above, were perfect little babes the whole day and drew a lot of attention with their matching team spork t-shirts. leah and i were such proud mamas!
