This morning Jasper and I went to "Tugboat Story Time" on a 124 year-old tugboat. I wish I could have taken pictures of the boat, but it was covered in white plastic because it was being restored. It's hard to believe a wooden boat could last that long in the Pacific Northwest.
Here he is with his classmate waiting for the stories to begin.
The story teller telling us about the boat.
Jasper got a little wiggly and we ended up exploring the boat. It was not toddler-proof, so pictures weren't really an option for me. However, I think he and his school buddy enjoyed being out on the docks watching boats and sea planes take off more than the story time. The weather was beautiful and the docks were safer there, so I was able to grab some shots.
We just might be in for a rainy Memorial Day weekend, good thing we got out into the sun while we could. Jasper and I both took naps when we got home. Pregnancy has made me a very good napper these days.

It's not perfect, but it looks a lot better and one can walk on it barefoot now without worrying about splinters. More kid-friendly!

Thank you to my mom who has given my brother and I so much!
Now Jasper is lucky enough to have her, aka "Mimi" and Jack's mom, "Nana" around to receive plenty of love and attention. My mom is a retired teacher and it's so fun to see what she notices as he grows.
Here is a sweet picture of my mom with Jasper. It's from last summer, I have more recent photos, but I love how this shows how she's not afraid to get dirty to have some fun with her grandson.
Here's my current favorite picture of Jasper. This is what he does when we ask him to smile. (And I love his trucks in the background.)
Here's me being a mom. Best job ever.

Striking a pose.
Waiting patiently for the train!
Exploring the beach and the meaning of life.
Sittin' with Dad.
Snugglin' with Mom. I love this photo so much.
Looking longingly back to the water tub as Mom dries him off.

Jasper received his first haircut on April 29th. My very good friend Heather has been cutting her sons' hair for years and was kind enough to do this for us. I was super excited, strangers kept taking him for a girl and I really couldn't blame them. He did a great job despite being quite uncertain. He kept saying, "All done," but sitting there just the same. I love how he looks like a little boy now!
Before pictures, crazy hair!
We tried for a towel around his neck, but it was not meant to be.
The first cut!
It almost looks like he is enjoying himself.
Here is an after picture from later that night. No more mad scientist hair!
