Birthday, Splash Pad, and Baseball

This post is a little late, but while we were at my parents house a couple of weeks ago we also celebrated Eli and my Dad's birthdays since they are only a day apart.
Eli wants to play drums just like Papa so they had a snare drum cake!

Eli - 3 years    Papa - 21 years

We also went to the Bentonville Square splash pad.  Jillian doesn't really like pools but she LOVES splash parks and sprinklers!

Eli had a little collision with another boy.  He got a little scrape and was very proud of his bandaid.

Sharing a snack.

Sister loves it when Daddy twrills her around!

My thoughtful boy.

We also fed the ducks at the park.  We actually did this twice because Eli likes it so much.  These particular ducks are slightly aggressive and will come right up to you if you have bread for them so we had to keep Eli from getting too close.

Daddy trying to keep sister from getting in the water.

Eli thinking about climbing across the bars on the playground.

Holding on for dear life!

Getting some help from Papa.

Eli loved going to the Arkansas Naturals game.  One of the players from the other team gave him a baseball.  He was in Heaven!

He was so excited about his balloon hat!  Unfortunately, the people sitting behind us were less than thrilled.

The whole family at the ballpark. (minus Jillian who was with a sitter.)

The kids got to run the bases after the game.  We weren't sure if Eli would make it that long but he was so good!  Here he is running the bases with Daddy.

Running from second to third.

Coming home!  See the huge grin on his face!  He had a great time!  We can't wait to go back to Meemie and Papa's house!
