Cody's Trip to Grandpa and Grandma's House

Jason and I were attending the annual Insight for Living cruise to Alaska for work and so Cody got to spend the week in Oregon at Grandpa and Grandma's house! Jason was meeting me a day later so it was just Cody and I traveling.  We went from Dallas to Seattle and back down to Oregon and had a great day together.  He even got to ride the train around the Seattle airport during our layover.
Cody loves airplanes and flying....and pluto goes everywhere with us these days.
He is not a big fan of the headphones but knows it's the only way to watch videos or play games on the airplane so he embraces them.
Right before this trip we got Cody this little Thomas the Train rolling bag.  It was the best $12 because he packed it full of his favorite toys for the trip and proudly pulled it through 3 different airports.  He also has his ticket in his hand.  He insisted that I give him his ticket and he would give it to the people checking us in and then hold it until we got to our seats where he would then tuck it safely in his bag.
Our last flight was this little plane and we got to walk outside and climb steps to get inside.  He loved this!
I got Cody all settled in at Jason's parents house and then flew to Seattle to meet up with everyone else for the cruise. He quickly discovered their blueberry bush and would pick handfuls at a time.
Their yard always looks so beautful. Daisy's are my favorite flower and I was happy he would stand still long enough for me to take his picture...and actually smile for me!
Walking around the yard with Grandma.  There are lots of things to explore!
Randy and Diane also have a wonderful garden and Cody enjoyed picking strawberries and all sorts of fruits and vegetables.
He got to sleep in a big bed at their house and wanted nothing to do with his toddler bed when he got home!
Cody and Uncle Bruce
He spent a lot of time with these sweet girls! Lucy and Avery are his 2nd cousins and he loves them!
After they said goodbye to me at the airport they took Cody to this fun park in Salem. I am so glad that Randy and Diane took pictures to document their week together.

He went to the Portland Zoo with Lucy and Avery!

I think the train ride at the zoo was a highlight of his day!
4th of July parade in Creswell! This was Cody's first parade and he had so much fun! 
He got to swim at Grandpa and Grandma's once it warmed up a little bit.

Watering Grandma's plants.
He spent a lot of time outside. The weather was perfect for summertime (expecially compared to Texas) and Grandpa and Grandma have a lot of outside land to run and play! Their home is beautiful!
 Katie enjoyed having someone to chase and play with!
Playing in the sprinkler and being eyed by his furry friend! Cody loved his week with Grandpa and Grandma and we knew he was having fun, being spoiled and loved!
