After drying off and having lunch, Ty had lots of fun being thrown up in the air by daddy. Marcus had been trying to get a shot of Tyler in the air with his phone, but he kept missing it every time, so I brought out my Ipad. This is when the shutter feature comes in super handy.
We got tons of adorable shots of Tyler in the air and being caught in daddy's arms. I can't wait to show them to him when he's older.
But this one was by far the BEST! He looks perfect with that fantastic smile! The crop of just Tyler in the clouds totally looks photoshopped, too. We didn't have a swim diaper, so his regular diaper was ready to explode from all the lake water it had absorbed.
Later on Ty got a chance to play and cuddle with the late Bruno Allred, Julia and Luke's puppy. Unfortunately Bruno passed away just after we left Utah due to a fall that was just too big for his little body. We're glad we had a chance to meet him and love him while we were there.
We'd borrowed this baby backpack on the left from a friend of mine in Utah, and took Ty out for a little hike to Blue Pond springs.
And here's Ty having snacks with cousin Justin and drinking his juice with granny. I had him down to one nursing session a day, and had hoped to wean him on the trip, but he was extra thirsty in Utah and getting mad at the sippy cup, so I held off until after we got home to Seattle.
When we got back from camping, Oscar's parents dropped us down to my parents house where we went swimming right after Ty had his nap. He absolutely loved it! It was like extended bath time in an extra large tub where everybody gets to join him. He giggled like crazy while splashing and playing with Ethan, Emma, and Sophie. The next time we took him down on Tuesday to meet up my friend Jasmine and her little girls, but he was much less enthusiastic about it. He enjoyed swimming on other occasions we took him to the pool, but his first time was by far his favorite.
For the next two days we let Ty have lots of fun playing with Mike's kids in the mornings. On Wednesday Ethan and Emma were playing with a plush toy banana, throwing it up to the ceiling while saying "boing, boing, BOING!" Tyler giggled hysterically! It was awesome! I loved seeing my nieces and nephew entertaining Tyler. That was also the last time that Mike and Shan would see Tyler then since they were leaving for their anniversary trip. My dad says they've talked about how cute he is ever since.
While at my parents' house, Ty slept in a little pack and play in dad's walk in closet so he could have his preferred darkness (in addition to pulling on dad's long sleeve shirts). But one time Ty was so worn out from having so much fun that he actually fell asleep in Oscar's arms, which never happens anymore. Too cute!

While we were having fun at Lagoon, Oscar took Ty to Kaysville to hang out with his family. Ty loved eating blackberries from granny and grampy's garden! He also got to try his first sucker, which resulted in much hilarity as you can see in this video, and enjoyed playing with great grandpa Flinders' croquet sticks.
On Wednesday evening after we finished up at Lagoon, Mike took us all out for Thai food in Layton before dropping me off in Kaysville. We stayed the night since the next day was the start of the Flinders Family Reunion. Pics of that to come in my next post!
