Visit to Centralia

In May we went to Centralia because Uncle Tiny and Austin were up from California and they were throwing a birthday party for Austin.  We traveled down there Friday night and met Jeff, Gina, Alexis and Andrew.  We all stayed at the same hotel and had fun spending time together.  On Saturday we all went to Fort Borst Park in Centralia for a picnic and the birthday party.  This was the first time that all the family had been together in a long time.  It was great being able to see each other and eat some good food.  I had great intentions of taking a lot of photos but then I totally forgot.  Oh well, here are the few I took…

Of course the exersaucer went with us!

Alexis insisted we go swimming so I stopped and bought a bathing suit (because of course I didn’t pack one), then we discover the heated pool isn’t heated at all and the hot tub was way too hot.  We tried but Parker’s teeth instantly started chattering and he was to have none of the pool!

Didn’t want to let him crawl all over the hotel floor so he had play time on the bed.

2009-06-09 001 2009-05-10 010 On the way home we stopped at The Cheesecake Factory because it was Mother’s day and Mommy wanted some cheesecake.  To keep Parker entertained we let him play with a spoon.
