|Shoot me daddy. I'm thirsty.|
Oscar's mom and sisters had planned a bunch of activities for the 3 day reunion. Day 2 was spent up at the East Canyon Reservoir. I brought Ty down to the water where he had fun playing with the rocks and dirt, but it was too cold for him to last long. Back up at the pavillion there were a bunch of toys in a suitcase, but Ty's favorite thing to do was playing in the suitcase itself. He also enjoyed drinking water directly from the water gun.
That evening each family was asked to compose a song sung to a well known tune. Ours was London Bridges. Here was our song.
"Oscar met his pretty wife, she said yes, ain't that nice? Temple sealer's good advice: love your Stacy.
Married in 2006, got 3 cats, went on trips. Waterfalls and lines that zip, earned 3 degrees.
Washington sure rains a lot, allergies, they cause snot. Bought a house but not a yacht. Plant rosemary.
Tyler was an embryo conceived by in-vitro. With red hair but not a bow, our fair baby."

On Monday I went to Lagoon again while Ty and Oscar hung out in Kaysville. It was nice for Oscar's parents to spend some time with Ty without the stress of the reunion on them. Mike and Shan had left for an anniversary trip in Costa Rica, so mom and dad stayed over at their house while Oscar and I had mom and dad's house all to ourselves.
That evening we met up with my friend Jenny at the Brick Oven in Layton. We hadn't seen each other in 4 years. It's nice when you meet up with someone you haven't talked to in a long while and get a fun reminder of why you became friends in the first place. Tyler ate lots of pasta and drank lots of tasty homemade root beer.
There was also a baby splash area so he could play with the water, though after the swimming pool, this paled in comparison.
Oscar enjoyed torturing Tyler in the fast winds area
We went back to the Zoo on Thursday to try the new Wild Kingdom train and see the bird show now that we had good weather.
I insisted on getting a drink from the lion's mouth. I used to LOVE these when I was a kid.
And Friday we had a fun time at the aquarium, meeting up with Pam for Leatherby's, and getting one final swim in. This time Oscar joined us in the pool, which was super fun for Tyler. Enormous bath time fun with daddy! Oscar was throwing Ty high in the air, which Ty was enjoying enormously, until he caught him kind of low, causing Ty to bite his own lip on the impact. It was a bit traumatic, but he got over it quickly and went back to having fun.
On Saturday we had one final day just hanging out with mom and dad until our flight left that afternoon. Ty kept bringing books for Oscar to read, one of which was the phone book!
We definitely had lots of fun with family, but I have to admit after 2.5 weeks of non-child proofed environments, it was good to get my baby back home.
