My new words

A lot has happened in the last two months. We took a brief trip to the hospital (eeks), we moved, we celebrated Daddy's 30th birthday, we got to host Mommy and Daddy's good friend Amanda from New Hampshire (I really like her!), and much much more!

I am loving having a backyard at my new house. I went in my little pool the other day, which is a huge improvement, previous to this I didn't like water (except for my bathtime). I am climbing EVERYTHING. My mommy has a daily heart attack because of this. I can't wait to show Aunt Liz and Uncle Josh, they will be so impressed with my climbing skills. I also am a huge fan of somersaults. I do them daily! But my big development this last month has been my words! I am slowly picking some new ones up! Banana, Juice, Moon, Dog, Duck, Boat, Ewww (like yuk), Dude, Cheese, Boo and of course Dada and Mama. And my favorite animal sounds recently is a horse's neigh. I also am really digging construction equipment/vehicles (pardon the pun). And I LOVE making the noise that fire trucks make... weeeuuuuw weeeuuuw! Below are some pictures that Aunt Carley took of me around the house. We have so much fun together!

My hike in White Oak Canyon Falls

So I know its been a while... a long while.
But I plan on being more diligent! Here we go!
This is a Zeke post:
This weekend I got to go on a hike with my mom & dad and Aunt Whiz and Uncle Josh. We had so much fun. I rode on dad's back the first half and then rode on Uncle Josh's for the second half. Here are some pictures from our trip!

Daddy loaded me up in a backpack on his back. I had a great view from up there!

I really enjoyed looking at the trees and the water!

This was one of the cool views I saw!

We stopped at the top for some lunch. I had to stay in my backpack because crazy Mom thought we were up too high for me to run around. I was okay with it, but Aunt Whiz said I looked like a turtle!

Daddy feeding me and standing guard, making sure I don't take off.

Our beautiful view at the top, where we had lunch.

Uncle Josh took over carrying me!

I was fading slowly, getting wore out!

And I was DONE! I fell asleep on his back very quickly.

This is my idea of "hiking".

Zeke's Hair

Last night, while brushing Zeke's hair after his bath, he fell asleep. That is the only explanation I can give for these next couple photos. This is what he looked like this morning:

So tonight, while I was at volleyball, Tony decided that Zeke needed a 'trim'. I came home and this is what I saw:

He doesn't seem too upset about it. He is telling me "Hey Mom! It is JUST hair!"
I know, I know, it grows back.
I am a bit sad though, I already miss that crazy hair.
Samson lost a little strength tonight.

My Trip to Florida (Part 5) Beach Day!

On our last day in Florida my cousins and I packed up and we went to the beach for a fun day of playing in the sand and swimming! The weather was perfect! But there were a few minor hiccups:
1) They were fishing for sharks along the beach... and they caught a bunch!
2) The water was 20 degrees! (I may be exaggerating a bit)
3) I hadn't taken my morning nap and was angry as an alligator. (No exaggeration)
So I decided to do what every Woodard does best at the beach... I took an hour long nap. I curled up on Mommy's lap and slept, while the tide was crashing and a nice sea breeze was keeping me cool!
Here are a few pictures I got with my cousins before my beach snooze!

My Trip to Florida (Part 4) Swimming!

Daddy attempted to take me swimming.
Swimsuit: Check!
Floaties: Check!
Watersocks: Check!
Sunscreen: Check!
The love of water: Ooops! I knew we forgot to pack something!!

My Trip to Florida (Part 3) The Tent!

Queen and Papa Tyrone had a great idea for us kids! They got a tent for us!! We played with it inside and outside. We read in it, we snacked in it, we built legos in it, we really loved the tent!
Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our "cave"!

What is that?!?! Wow! A tent!

My Trip to Florida (Part 2) The Safari Day!

On our second day in Florida we went on an adventure!! We went to a safari that you can drive through! We had zebras and antelopes crossing right in front of the car! Then we went to the petting zoo and got to see some more animals. It was so fun!

I am wearing my sunglasses in the drive-thru safari so the Paparazzi Zebras don't recognize me ;)

Me and Mom went on a train ride. I practiced my "Choo-Choo" sound!

Daddy helped me feed some goats. I wasn't very happy about seeing them this close.

Much to Mom's dismay I love chasing birds!
