Toph and I went to Montana a couple weeks ago to visit Grandma and Grandpa Croft, Uncle Chris and Aunt Tabbatha, and Toph's cousins Samantha, Damian, Kaitlyn, and Christopher. We went to the carousel and ate lunch in the park, went to the movies (got pop and popcorn which was such a treat), went to the park, went to a cub scout day camp (Toph mostly tried to eat rocks. We tried to teach him to throw the rocks down on the ground instead of putting them in his mouth. It worked about 50% of the time.), helped Grandpa plant a tree, played with Toph's cousins, played in the McDonald's play place for the first time, and Toph ate his first Popsicle. He loved it.
Thank you mom and dad for letting us come and visit. We had tons of fun. It was great to get away and relax. Here are a few pics of our trip.
I told Toph to give the Horse lov'ns. I thought he was giving it a kiss until I looked really close at this picture and saw that he was sticking his tongue out. He was licking inside the horses nostril.
Toph with his cousins Damian and Samantha. Toph loves Damian. He climbed all over him while we were there and kept trying to give him hugs and kisses. He also liked stealing his pillow at night.
When we say, we helped Grandpa plant a tree, we really mean we watched Grandpa do all the work, took pictures that look like we helped, ate crackers on the lawn while Grandpa worked, and Toph ate the dirt. I guess that's one way to rid of the access dirt. Toph also got to hold a worm for the first time, but not for long. I didn't want this to be his first time also eating a worm. :(
Toph enjoyed riding around on the riding lawn mower. He actually fell asleep in his Grandpas arms while mowing the back yard. Good thing riding in the carseat also does the trick. Not sure where we would store or even use a riding lawn mower. We would have to move closer Grandma and Grandpa. :)
I am glad he was sitting on Grandpa's lap and not mine. HAHAHA!! I would have let him eat it outside without a shirt on but it wasn't warm enough. He actually stayed pretty clean.
