Ta Da!

Super William!!

Bath time!

William has a "little people" man and boat for the bath and has realized that he can put it in his mouth. He really likes it when I pull it out of his mouth.

Mike and I got William a tunnel for his Birthday. He really likes it!


You might not be able to tell but his shirt says "My 1st Birthday"

We had a Birthday Party for William on the 11th. It was really great. He had a great time eating cake and playing with all his new toys!

Ice Cream You Scream!

For a FHE The Olson family along with Rachel and Will went to look at the first and second LDS chapels in MN. After we went for ice cream, it was so much fun. We have a picture of William's drool on the pink ice cream cone, too.


Mike wanted me to call this picture Super Dorks. I think that they are cute! A couple of super guys!

William has found has way past the wall that we have for him and goes straight for his spoons and in the process the cat food. He loves playing with and chewing on his spoons.

He is even cute when asleep - usually his bum is up in the air but the guitar PJs make up for not getting that on camera.


William is crawling and climbing everwhere!!

In front of the camera

William always has to be in front of the camera even if he is taking it!! Hahaha!

Will's discover!

We were doing wash at my Grandma's and William found a fun way to try and suck on glass. He has been discovering many things over the last few weeks. He has really started to get around and into everything. His hands and knees are red all the time. He is curious like his mom. William also has learned how to pull himself up in his crib, next to the couch, just about anywhere.


So the day after Will and I got back from the cabin we needed some Mike time and went to Minnehaha Falls!

The Turtle Races!!!

So up at the cabin in town they have what is called the "Turtle Races" every Wednesday. It is one of most important things we have to do when we are there. You should be able to get the idea by the picture of how it works if not you can always email and I can explain. This is obviously Will's first time at the races. So you would think that when we are 7 of 9 turtles that we would at least win our heat, but no we still lost.

Fun at the Cabin!

First time in the lake or any lake. Will was a little scared at first I think it was a little colder than our heated pool, but once he got comfortable he started splashing around.

This is at the back of the cabin facing the lake. What a big boy!

I just thought that this picture was cute! Don't you?


My Grandparents have a cabin up north on a lake. It is my favorite place to be every summer since I was a little girl. Here is Will for the first time at the cabin!!
