Guess Who?

I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I have baby pictures of Tristan, Jason, and I, and I tried to find some that looked pretty similar to each other. They are mostly in groups of two pictures that look sort of alike. You have to try to guess who is who. I know...the outfits and styles have changed quite a bit from when we were young, so this probably won't be too hard, but it is still kind of cool to see how much Jason and I looked like Tristan! To get you started, the first picture is of Tristan...see if you can guess the rest, and then look below it to find the answer.

This is Jason with his big sister Carolyn.

There was a big debate over whether this one was Jason or Eric. By looking at the ages of the other people in the picture, we were able to determine that it is Jason. I obviously don't have any pictures of Tristan at this age, but I just had to include this picture because of Jason's hair and eyes! This is what Tristan will look like next year!!

OK, another one that is obviously Jason. What a cutie! This is how Tristan might look on his first day of Kindergarten.

The pink ruffles might have given this one away. I'm on the left, Jason's on the right, and....

This one's Tristan...all of us under our baby blankets.


Tristan. Those two are hard to tell the difference if you just look at the face...except Jason's was maybe a teeny bit chubbier.


Tristan...don't you love their smiles?


Ok, yeah, this one's easy...should have covered up the bootie...and the pink dress....and the ruffles....but don't I look like Tristan?




Me! and my big sister, Camala. Can you see that Tristan inherited my facial expressions?

Tristan Pictures

Tristan climbs on everything.

Tristan pulls himself up to splash in the water as his daddy takes a bath.

Chloe Baysinger loved to hold and hug Tristan at Olympia 2 Convention.

Tristan enjoys running all around the driveway at Carolyn's.

What Happened To Our View?

This is the view from our spec house last week....

This is our view this week...

The difference? Click here. A wildfire 35 miles up lake from us is burning over 3500 acres. We get all the smoke and haze. Ash is swirling in the air like snow!

Yesterday Jason thought it would be fun to share his lunch with Tristan. Tristan had a blast chewing on a cookie!

Mommy had a blast cleaning up the mess.

Tristan Update

We've had several busy weeks. I have a bunch of random pictures here in no particular order. This one is of Snoqualmie Falls. We stopped by when we were on our way to Seattle to pick up my parents.

Mom and Dad came out for a week. They spent a few days with us in Chelan, and then we all went to Duncan conv. for the rest of the week. We had a lot of fun!

Dad and I had a gruelling hike up the Chelan Butte. It was a beautiful view, though. It was very steep, which was rough on the way up, but way worse on the way down. We were in a controlled (and often uncontrolled) slide the whole way down. All of our energy was put into slowing ourselves down. That really strains some unique muscles that we felt for days!

I think I mentioned before that Tristan is crawling. He has been for about a month, now. He goes everywhere! Just last week he pulled himself up to a standing position for the first time. Unfortunately, he pulled himself up on his Excersaucer, which shifts and moves. It slipped out from under him, so he was hanging sideways from it! First of many crashes I'm sure. Yesterday I came out of our room and he was standing up against a chair in the dining room.

We went to Salmon La Sac. We were maybe going to stay in a hotel for our anniversary, but then ended up camping in the back of the car on the side of the road right by the river. We had a nice hike in the morning and a freezing cold swim in the river.

Mark, Karol, Leah, Teana, and even Julie came for a weekend! It was a lot of fun. We went up to Stehekin on Saturday in Shawn and DeAnne's boat.
