Liam played a little baseball (not t-ball – they used a pitching machine!) this summer with his friend Miles. The boys learned a lot and got to work on the fundamental skills of baseball.
He had a great road trip over the past weekend travelling up to Lake Tahoe for Jess’s friend Amy’s wedding. There were tons of kids for Liam to play with, and he got all dressed up for the occasion! We stopped overnight in Yosemite on the way back and stayed right by the main Waterfall – it was amazing! Liam enjoyed throwing rocks into the lake and climbing any boulder he could find in Yosemite. He is quite the nature boy!
We had a great time this weekend with Jess’s friend Amy, her husband Greg and son Miles (14 months) They came down to visit for the family brewery Oktober Hess festival. We had great times with great beer and friends. The boys had a blast playing and running around together.
We took Liam to the pumpkin patch on Sunday, where he picked his own pumpkins and solved both the flower and stick maze at the farm – several times :)
Even though he was pretty sick earlier last week, Liam sucked it up and headed up North for his first camping trip. We stayed the first night at a cabin just outside of Sequoia National Park. The drive through the park was amazing seeing the change in terrain and climate. The Sequoia trees were huge, and there was snow covering the ground at the highest elevations. Liam enjoyed the scenery and the brisk fresh air.

We saw deer as soon as we got into Sequoia National Park.
We then headed up to Lake Don Pedro to meet up with Jess’s friend Amy for her husband Greg’s 40th birthday. There was a great group of people at the camp site, and Liam had a blast sleeping in a tent, going out on a boat, and playing in the dirt with other kids.
Here are all the kids that made the trip with Amy and her “Greg”.
We were amazed at how much Liam enjoyed this trip. He absolutely LOVES to be outside in the “sunshine” :) Mommy and Daddy scored points with him big-time!
