Happy Trails

Over Christmas we visited Carl's family in Arizona.  We had a fun time, and Will was able to meet many relatives he had not met before.  One day we went out on a family trail walk and let Will explore a bit on his own walking on the way back.  This is pretty pic heavy...I couldn't decide which ones to put up.  :)
The lighting is poor, but I love the picture of these two.

Will loves to give high-fives when he accomplishes something.
This boy LOVES the outdoors!

This was quite a feat...climbing this hill on his own.
Will made it up that hill!  : )

Will didn't fight being put back in the carrier after his time of exploring...he fell asleep shortly after AND took a long nap when we got home.  All that exploring was hard work!

Pops and Deedee's Visit

Over Thanksgiving Carl's parents visited.  It was wonderful to have them visit, though unfortunately for them they were sick over the actual Thanksgiving holiday.  Fortunately for us, we never became sick.  Despite the illness, we were still able to have a nice family visit and Will enjoyed seeing his Pops and Deedee.  Here are a few pictures from the visit.  :)

While they were here we celebrated Christmas as well.  Here's Will on the rocking horse Pops made for him by hand.  Pretty great craftsmanship, isn't it? 

On his way to becoming a real cowboy. ; )

A Day in the Life of Will

Will is a very active boy, always doing or into something.  :)  He is so much fun, I just wanted to share a few videos of when I was actually able to "catch" him doing something.  So here's some activities in the day of the life of Will...

Sometimes he dances...

Recently he has discovered this toe-tapping type dance and circle spinning.  Definitely takes some coordination and concentration.  :)

Sometimes he tells very ANIMATED stories...(sorry about video quality...I was trying to keep Will from seeing the camera)

And sometimes he just sits in his chair to play quietly...(please excuse the loud background noise--the window was open and they were leaf blowing outside)

No matter what he does, a day in the life of Will is always an adventure!  :)
