Sunday Fun Day

I think we have a fish on our hands! Last Sunday after church we took Eli to our neighborhood pool for the first time. He LOVED it! It wasn't very crowded so Eli and Daddy had lots of room in the baby pool.Loving the water!

It was REALLY hot so Jillian slept in the shade!

A little water in the face.

He loves to splash!

Eli trying to smile at me but the sun was too bright!

He was much more concerned with swimming than taking pictures.

Sweet smiling girl!

Jillian got to meet her BFF on Saturday! Our wonderful friends Chris and Amy brought little Avery, who is only 5 days older than Jillian, for a visit and they had a great time! We can't wait to see these girls grow up together!Jillian Jane and Avery Grace
Pretty girls!

Getting a little fussy

Very unhappy. I guess Mommy was taking too many pictures. They were DONE! :)

Wipe Out

This is what happens when you leave a toddler too close to the wipes during breakfast.

Visit to Meemie & Papa's - Part 5 - Graduation 2010

My sister Meredith graduated high school this past weekend! We were all there to cheer her on! Here is the graduate before the ceremony.

Eli was very good during the graduation. I think he was just taking it all in.

This is how miss Jillian and I took in the event. She was happy as a clam the whole time!

Me and Meredith

Stephen and Eli letting out some energy.

Walking to the car...Eli decided he was done with graduation (at least for the next 16 years.)

Meredith with her cake!
We had a great week visiting the whole family! Hopefully we can do it again soon!

Visit to Meemie & Papa's - Part 4 - The Park!

Eli LOVES the park! He cheers loudly when we pull up and he sees the slides.
Eli went down this slide about 10 times before we could convince him to do something else.

Aunt Meredith and a distracted Eli.

We walked over to the pond to feed the ducks, but I think Eli ate more bread than he threw.

The geese got very close and were a bit aggressive when they realized we had bread.

Swinging high!

Mommy swinging with Jillian in the front pack. I'm not trying to smother her...she just hated the sun in her face. :)

Visit to Meemie & Papa's - Part 3 - Jam Session

Eli has always liked musical instruments and loves to play the drums, but now he is obsessed! He is constantly asking to "do drums, do drums." We leave that up to Papa.

Rockin' out!

Eli decided he wanted to sit in Papa's seat. I think Papa is a little afraid of getting hit by Eli's sticks!
