Welcome to our family blog. This is for us to keep track of the fun we have day to day, and for the family and friends out there who like to hear about it. Hope you enjoy!
Grandpa Ashby found this cute tricycle months ago at a garage sale and I'm so glad he didn't pass it up! Grandpa had to add blocks to the pedals so Heath could reach and now he really has the hang of it and rides on the sidewalks all around our place.
Mike's parents came to visit us in June. We had so much fun with them. Heath showed them our zoo that we go to often. He even got to feed a giraffe with Grandma!
For Heath's actual birthday we spent the afternoon in Ojai with all the grandparents. We rode the Ojai Trolley, stopped at Bart's books, and saw Heath's cousin, Jake, play in a little league all-star game. We ended the day with one of Heath's favorite foods, pizza! at Boccalli's in Ojai.
Heath loved all the attention and play time he got with Grandma and Grandpa B!

We took Grandma and Grandpa B. back to Ojai for Father's day and took a quick snap shot of our 3 generations.
I love this photo of all of us. Heath had such a fun time running around the back yard and showing off for all 4 grandparents. We miss them all so much now that Grandpa and Grandpa B. are back in Boise and the Ashby Grandparents are traveling the country.
For the 4th of July, we drove to Utah for a mini Bishop family reunion. All of Mike's siblings and their families made it except one, we missed you Rob, Tonja, Ellen, and new baby Neil! While in Utah we went to a water park and Heath loved it! He is a fish! Mike took him on some BIG slides.
this is a close up to show how happy Heath was to go on the water slides.
Heath also loved to float in the lazy river. He would keep his head up and just let his legs dangle behind him.
We watched the fireworks from Auntie Nater's home and the kids loved getting sparklers and pop its from Grandpa. Thanks everyone for such a fun trip. I forgot to put my battery in my camera too often while we were there so I missed getting pictures of everyone, but we loved seeing all of you!
Soon after we got home, we surprised Heath with a big boy bed! The first few nights were a little rough, but he now goes down with out any problems. We check on him before we go to bed and sometimes he is on the floor, so we put him back and in the mornings he comes to get me. I think he likes the freedom to get out on his own in the morning.
A couple Sundays ago Mike dressed Heath up real sharp for church. We slicked his hair back for the first time. Heath liked the pampering, but the hair didn't last. It was a fluffy mess by the time nursery started.
