Weeks 29+30 (June 30th-July 13th) were full of adventures -- Josie got baptized, saw her first parade, started crawling, spent a week with Grammy, and got to see lots of family. She is eating more food (she loves yogurt) and enjoyed lots of outside time at parks and concerts.
Week and Month Pics
Pics From the Week
Week 25 (June 2-8) Josie started to scoot around chasing after at toys. She's giggling more and got to start using her 'big girl' stroller. We went on lots of walks, visited Krista and Mike, went to the Edina Art Fair with Ben, Patty, and Remy, and, of course, Josie gots lots of love from Auntie Andrea and her big cousins.
Week 24 (26th-1st) were full of traveling fun. We headed to SF for Womo and Yushan's wedding, but along the way we also got to see Yosemite and Sequoia national parks.
Off to California
We had a great Uber, flight, and drive on our way to San Francisco and then off to Yosemite. Josie travelled well and really liked the bright red colors at In-N-Out Burger.

Josie enjoyed the wildlife and waterfalls in Yosemite. She had fun driving the windy and steep roads, traversing sub-alpine trails, and posing for many many photos.
Sequoia National Park
The largest trees in the world were no match for little Josie. She climbed a tree, saw a bear, and climbed on top of Moro Rock (a giant granite dome overlooking the park).
Our first adventure in San Francisco was to Half Moon bay on the Pacific Ocean. We had a fun lunch at a tiny food truck (actually, it was a train car) and walked along the beach. Right after we got a family photo Josie spotted a gray whale! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and it was such a treat for Josie to see all of her friends and family. Josie loved seeing several views of the Golden Gate bridge, walking along the giant giant Coastal Redwoods at Muir Woods, and then traveling through downtown San Francisco.
Back on Home
The trip back home was easy breezy. After a great breakfast with the Iyegha crew, we got a ride to the airport from Patei in their 15 passenger van (almost filled!). Josie even slept during most of the flight to MSP.
Josie's week 22 (12th-18th) was full of laughter. Josie went to two baby showers - one for friends Valerie and Colby and the other was her own shower at daddy's work. She even got her own tiny Slingding and Slingding onesie! Josie enjoys seeing her toys fly out of her carseat, she went hiking at Lebanon Hills in Eagan, and spent lots of quality time at the Iyegha's casa.
Josie's week 21 (May 5-11) was full of fun family time. Josie celebrated her first Mother's day in Waukesha. She loved visiting with her Grammy and Papa as well as Auntie Marisa, Uncle Daniel, and cousin Daniel. She even got to see Bill! Josie just can't get enough of her new walker -- she'll just scoot and scoot as far as she can, but when she runs into something - look out! Josie learned to laugh this week and it's just the cutest thing you've ever seen.
