Tristan was especially enthralled. He was so entranced, he slowly slipped down until he all of a sudden fell and bonked his head.

Tristan got a new car seat!! He giggled for the first 15 minutes he was in it. He loved facing forward and being able to look out the window. Mom and Dad gave us their Sienna minivan!!! What a wonderful gift!!! We started out on the 30 hour drive home late Saturday night.
Sunday after our little meeting, we were at the Badlands of South Dakota. We took a little detour so that we could see the wonderful sights. Jason and I hadn't been there for about 15 years, so it was great to see again.
We saw lots of deer on the way home. Hundreds of deer grazing in the fields....about a hundred laying on the side of the road, dead.....and one really up close and personal. We had only about 5 hours left in our trip when I hit a deer. It was about 9:30 at night and a deer jumped right in front of the van. It bounced off of the hood, and the van slid out and we ended up in the grass in the median. We were all totally fine (Tristan's car seat did a good job). The impact wasn't all that bad, but the van needs some work. We weren't able to drive it away, so it is still in Superior, Montana. We had to find a ride back to Missoula where we spent the night in a hotel and rented a car in the morning. We made it home Monday at about 4 pm. We have yet to hear what will be done with the van. We hope that it will be fixed and we can have it back for our winter vehicle. So, our trip didn't end very well, but we really did have a wonderful time being with our family and friends!!!

A closer look at that cute little bummy.
Eli just naps through the ruckus.

Jason brought home a baby mouse that was in the insulation of the house they're building. His name is Ralph S. Mouse. :) Of course as we were transferring him from the box he came home in to a jar, he escaped. I shrieked, which made Tristan burst into tears. After chasing him around the dining room for awhile, Jason managed to trap him in the jar. He is still alive after about a week.
Remember these teeth? Yesterday, Tristan was digging through the drawer with the binkies in it, and he came out of his room looking like this. I burst out laughing, and he started laughing right along with me, of course having no idea what we were laughing about.

Grandpa and Grandma Sanderson, Leah, Teana, Julie, and Bethany Buckingham all came to Chelan for the weekend. We went on a walk, and Bethany put Tristan to sleep.
Tristan with his "ba". He says "ba, ba, ba" as babble, but when he is holding his ball, he says "ba" a little bit differently. You can hear him say it right as the video below starts. He loves to throw the ball and go chasing after it!
