Ted pics

Ted watching Veggie Tales from across the room. 
Enjoying the last of the summer sun.  
Eating an Eggo.  
Grandma Mann bought Ted a lamby pillow to go with his other lamby toy. He was carrying it all over the house.

Ted does not need a nap

According to Ted he did not need a nap today... After nap time was over at daycare I was reading a book with one of the other kids. Ted was not pleased... this video is a result. I do not show it to embarrass him, I show it because it is so ridiculously adorable :)

Ted goes to the zoo round 2

While daddy was gone on a boys weekend Ted, grandma and I went to the zoo. It was super hot with lots of hills. Even the meerkats were hot. 
It was cute seeing Ted's reaction to the aquarium. I think he liked seeing the fish but he was a but more cautious about touching the glass.  
In the kid zone Ted sat with the lemurs.  

How tall Ted is next to a polar bear.  

In the goat petting zoo.  

In true baby fashion Ted randomly pulled up his shirt for a picture.

I just received this email from someone I go to church. I can't believe this garbage!!!! I was so upset that marijuana was legalized in Washington and now it is coming to my community. I wrote an email to stop the building of this facility.

 Please please please anyone who reads this post write an emails to STOP THIS MARIJUANA FACILITY FROM BEING BUILT! 

Believe it!!!   At the end of our residential street (200th Ave SE) there is a proposal to build two 20,000 square foot warehouses to "be used for the processing/production of marijuana."  The only way to access this property is by using our road that has a church, a small neighborhood and homes on 2-5 acre lots.  It's outrageous that King County is even considering permitting this proposal.  The Notice of Application and SEPA Notice is attached (pay attention to site plan text box under Building A & B).
> > This will have a very negative impact on our community.  Surrounding property values will decrease, increase traffic on 200th,SE Wax Rd and SE 240th and endanger all the children in this neighborhood as the trucks/box vans transport drugs.  There is already tons of property slotted for commercial use.  There is no need to turn our residential area into something it's not.  There are 40 parking stalls for employees...  
> > What can you do to help?  
> > By September 2nd, please email the project manager Nancy Hopkins Goree at nancy.hopkins@kingcounty.gov and her supervisor Ty Peterson at ty.peterson@kingcounty.gov.  Be sure to include the File No. CMST14-0001 and your mailing address in the email.  They also recommended mailing a hard copy, but not necessary.  By including your mailing address you will be notified of the decision.  Any and all residents and business in the community can voice their opinion.  
> > Together we can stop the proposed POT warehouses in Maple Valley.  Don't wait, please send an email & share with your friends and neighbors in the community.> Thank you,

Ted the Model... Sort of

Ted is a member of a modeling agency, but nothing has come of it yet. Everyone recently was required to submit new photos. Since Ted is under 6 years old he can just use a snap shot instead of having a fancy head shot.

summertime pics

While I was talking on the phone to Tyler, Ted sat on the floor and rested his head on the first step and was just staring at the ceiling. This is what you do when you are a baby. Yes, he is holding a chip bag clip. One of his favorite toys. Oh, I have wasted so much money on toys....

Jenae sent me a doggie snuggie. It was a size small which neither of my dogs are. I wrestled Ruby into it anyway so aunt Jenae could see her wonderful gift. Putting this on her was the struggle equivalent to trimming her nails!

Ted has taken to climbing into his cozy coupe, which we park under the counter, via the side without a door. Then he is stuck forever or until I take pity on moaning Myrtle and pull him out. :-) I am sure he would actually prefer me to push him around the house instead.

Ted looking good in his summer gear.

Ted Goes to the Beach

Ted went to the ocean at Christmas time but I don't count that because he never got out of his stroller. So here is his official first time at the beach. The pictures are out of order. 

At first Ted loved it. 

As you can see Ted tasted quite a bit of sand. 

Then Ted hated it. Hahaha I love this picture so much. We took him to the water and at this point he is cold, tired, and hungry. 

We changed Ted back into his warm dry clothes and everything was all better.

Grandma and Grampa Mann

The reason we vacation where we do is because my grandma lives by the beach. I didn't get any pictures of her this time around. :( but here is Ted riding Max the horse at her house.

Later we went for a walk. Wagons are very hard to nap in.

Oh my goodness there were so many birds at the beach the second day. 

Tyler and the dogs ventured out. Ruby went crazy trying to get them. I'm pretty sure the pelicans could have fit her in their mouth. 

Because of the crazy birds we went for a walk. It was pretty hot to the royal pug got to ride in the wagon. We tried to let Max in the wagon too but he preferred to walk. Ruby on the other hand looked like she was meant to always be rolled around in her regal caravan.
