Wow, I know it’s the shortest month of the year, but February sure zipped by. We had playdates and birthday parties, an Antartica Fair and Book Fair at school, Valentines Day, mid-winter break, and trips to the Woodland Park Zoo and the Seattle Home Show. Jonathan and I also launched a new and improved website for our photography business. Check it out here.
Here’s Kieron setting a nail at February’s Kid’s Workshop at Home Depot. Nice fine motor skills, little guy!
We took the boys to the zoo earlier in the month. But first we had to stop at Cafe Vita for some coffee. Here’s Kieron with some of our loot.
And here he is feeding the Humboldt penguins.
Avery was especially excited to feed them since he’s been learning about Antarctica at school all month (although technically, this breed isn’t from Antarctica).
Kieron had a close encounter with a peacock. He didn’t notice it approaching until it was quite close, and startled, he speed walked diagonally away from it. Wish we’d caught it on tape.
We had some really pretty days in the middle of the month, so we took a few long walks with the boys to some of the parks.
Jonathan took a day off over mid-winter break to spend some quality time with the boys. He took Avery and Kieron hiking on Little Si.
Oh my gosh, how precious is this?!

Avery came home from school on Valentines Day with all these stickers (from his Valentines) on his face. He kept them on until bath. Here he is reading the Valentine from us.
And here’s Kieron enjoying the cookies we made earlier in the day.
Kieron didn’t really get interested in watching TV until a couple of months ago. He only likes Fireman Sam, cooking shows, Mighty Machines, some Sesame Street, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Caillou. Right now he’s really into “Caillou the Chef.” It’s one eight minute episode he watches on YouTube and never gets tired of. Here he is totally engrossed.
Avery finished the Lego Space Shuttle!

Meanwhile Silas plays more peek-a-boo
Last weekend we took the boys to the Home Show in Seattle. Afterward we went to the waterfront for lunch and a nice walk on the pier.
