A lot of ground to cover

It's been way too long since our last post, so here's a rundown of our very busy month:

Mommy, Daddy and Cap'n Quinn visited Seattle at the beginning of September. We had fun walking through Pike Place Market, the place famous for vendors throwing fish at each other.

We then walked along the Puget Sound waterfront and looked at all boats. Quinn loves boats. Mommy does, too. Especially the big cruise ship. She kept telling Daddy that he needs to take her on another ride on a cruise ship.

After that we visited the Seattle Aquarium, where Quinn saw his two favorite fish: Dorie and Nemo from "Finding Nemo," his favorite movie. He also enjoyed watching the sea lions.

Finally, we visited Uncle Sean and Aunt Kelly on the day their baby, Breanna, was baptized.

A few weeks after that trip, both Quinn and Dexie the Wonderdog got sick.

Quinn got a bad fever, reaching as high as 105 degrees, putting a scare into both Mommy and Daddy. It turned out to be nothing more than a virus that needed to run it's course. It was made to seem worse since Mommy and Daddy weren't used to giving the good cap'n large doses of medicine. They were used to giving infant doses of Tylenol, but Quinn's a pretty big boy. Once the doctor gave us the OK, we gave him the right doses.

Quinn enjoys his medicine -- a little too much. He even asks for it when he isn't sick.

Dexie, meanwhile, got the best present on Daddy's birthday: a visit to the vet. She's been fighting either fleas or allergies. Lucky for us, it was allergies. But that means Dexie, just like Daddy, gets a daily dose of allergy medication. She also had some stomach problems, which seem to have passed -- again, lucky for us.

The biggest news, though, is that Mommy is back at work. She's spending her weekends at Tuality Hospital in Hillsboro, Ore., leaving her two men to fend for themselves while she's earning some bucks.

But Daddy and Quinn do alright. So far, anyway.

Here are a few slideshows to enjoy. The first is of our trip to Seattle, the second is of our visit to the park today in Beaverton, and the last is some photos of Quinn helping Daddy with some hammering and of his experiment to determine what happens when you shove Cheerios in your nostrils.

The answer: A funny picture.
