Hey everyone, Colby here. Feta and I have been really busy lately. Spring is finally here, which means warmer weather and sunny skies, just don’t ask Gram about that one.
*** It was really cloudy and rainy the whole time Gram was here. I think she got to see the sun maybe three times, and all three times, it wasn’t sunny enough for her to see the snow-covered mountains, which besides us, was one of the main things she wanted to see. *****
Gram came to visit us in March. She actually flew into Seattle on Mom’s Birthday (which was on the 13th– she is now 10 times older than me, plus a year). Dad and Mom went to pick her up and met up with cousin’s Garet and Dusty. I guess they got to eat some good Cheesecake Factory food (Mom’s favorite). Then Garet took them on a scenic tour of Seattle. Unfortunately it was cloudy and on and off rainy the whole time.
It was so much fun to see Grams again. We love her so much and wish she would move out here, oh and bring Gramps and Uncle Jim too. We got to play with her, cuddle with her on the couch, and she even took us to the park.
**** Dad, Mom and Grandma did lots of fun stuff away from the house, Feta and I didn’t get to do any of it, but I will still tell you about it because Mom is making me****
On Friday, Dad and Mom took Grams to look at houses. Dad and Mom are currently looking for a new place to live. I don’t know why they won’t take us. We should get some say in where we live. Gosh, how rude. Maybe they are going to leave us here! Or maybe they will leave just Feta, she loves the backyard, she will be fine by herself. Then we can be a happy three person family again. Not that we were ever just a three person family, we were two, just Mom and me, but then we got Feta (boo) and then Dad (WOOHOO) Anyway, they had fun doing that and came back early enough to play with us.
On Sunday, Gram and Mom drove down to Newport, Oregon (a city near the ocean) and then they drove up the Pacific Coast Highway. The other thing that Grams really wanted to see was a whale and/or seals. She again didn’t see either of those. I guess the water was too choppy for the sea life to come in that close. Maybe next time. They had a great day, it was actually somewhat sunny for them. They stopped at lots of overlooks and beaches and took lots of pictures. On one beach they saw a bunch of starfish and anemones. They also saw some elk at a state park. Besides not seeing whales and seals, they had a really good day. Feta and I got to spend the whole day with Dad, which we love to do. He is such a fun Dad, probably the funnest I have ever had. YEAH– HE IS SUPER FUN, HE LETS ME GIVE HIM LOTS OF KISSES. HE LOVES ME SO MUCH– LOVE YOU DADDY, FROM YOUR BABY GIRL, YOU KNOW THE ONE WITH THE CUTE EARS AND THE CRAZYNESS, YEAH ME– FETA!!!!
Monday night was finally a non-rainy night, so Grams, Mom and Dad took us to the park. We got to play hide-and-go seek with all three of them. SO MUCH FUN!!! We got to take a really good picture with Gram too. LOVE YOU
On Tuesday, they went to Oregon to see the waterfalls. Gram liked seeing them so much, she took a bunch of pictures. Daddy took a bunch of pictures also.
On Wednesday, we had to say goodbye to Gram. She had to go back to snowy Wisconsin. She was very sad to leave us and I know that she wants to move here to be with us all the time. I know Gramps and Uncle Jim want to move here also. YEAH PEOPLE, GET A MOVE ON, YOU ARE MISSING ALL MY CUTENESS!!
Anyway, this spring has been really good so far. We are looking forward to more warm weather and for some more of the snow to melt on the hills. We are all itching to go hiking (not itching as in bugs on us, but just really want to go hiking, but not to that place where we met all those friends that wanted to ride on our backs)
I love you all and hope that you can come visit us some time.
I LOVE YOU ALL TOO. I AM GETTING SO MUCH CUTER EVERYDAY AND YOU ALL ARE MISSING IT. I AM PROBABLY GETTING A LOT MORE CRAZY TOO. THAT IS SUPER FUN! EVERYONE SHOULD COME BE CUTE AND CRAZY WITH ME!!
