Day Two and Three

Since Colton had decided to go to be so early the night before he decided that 5 a.m. was an acceptable time to get up and start playing. Him and Grandma found a rainbow to look at out the window then he colored one on a piece of paper to show me since I wouldn't open my eyes to look at it. While we were waiting for all of us to get ready and for Grandpa to come pick us up (he stayed at "big" Trevor's house) Colton found entertainment. He found a pen and went and hid in the corner and after a minute I asked what he was doing and he proudly showed me his tattoos! He had pulled his pants up and socks down so he could ink himself up. While I was laying on the bed he lifted up my shirt and kept showing Aunt Karlee my tattoo and then his tattoo. This might be considered a "bad example" but I think it is kind of funny!
Ready for his shower

Grandpa really wanted to take Colton down to the harbor in Gig Harbor so he could see all the boats. Us, Josh, Jen, Lily and Travis all headed down there. It was a cute street with a bunch of shops and restaurants. It was kind of like Park City's main street but by the water. I held onto Colton tightly since he has proven that he can't be trusted not to just jump in the water! (see here) He liked looking at the crabs until a guy held one up to close to him then he got a disgusted look on his face. We walked around there and hung out in a cute coffee shop for a couple hours until it was time to meet up with the Trevor's to go to dinner.
Josh and Jen We went to the Southcenter Mall in Seattle to go to the Rainforest Cafe. First off this mall is HUGE! It has four levels and goes on and on. I think I saw about 8% of it and that took and hour. You would have to devote and entire day if you really wanted to do some shopping there. The restaurant was awesome. It had all sorts of moving animals and sounds going on throughout it. Colton loved the monkeys and elephants but was very hesitant of the huge lifelike alligator that snapped at you and the big snake slithering down from the ceiling. The food was great and it was fun to be able to spend the last night with just our family...all 11 of us!

Trevor, Travis and TrevorJust tried Ranch dressingLoooove this picture The whole family
After dinner we all headed back to the hotel and hung out in our room for a couple hours talking and spending time with Trevor. Colton performed the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "If Your Happy and You Know It" for everyone. Uncle Trevor was impressed with how smart Colton is which of course made me a happy momma

How I got to sleep both nights...I loved it :)
The next day we just had enough time to wake up and get packed up to get off to the airport. We said our final goodbyes to the Trevor's :( and headed out. Once again Colton was amazing on the flight. The flight attendant even gave him his own wings!

We can't wait to go back again and can't wait to see Lily again one day! Hopefully Josh and Jen can make it out to Utah soon like they want too!
