Aunt Erin has arrived!

We all made the trip to the airport to get aunt Erin. Everyone was very excited to see her and even Eli knew who"Erin" was. We are now at Olive Garden to a) feed the world traveler who hasn't eaten since 530 am and b) avoid the traffic jam!!

Happy 2 nd birthday ELI!!!

Eli turns 2 today! We had a mini party complete with a Muppet cake! He got a Mater car from grandma and grandpa Meier and Aunt Erin! He likes it and knows how to drive it already since his brothers have power cars!!

He got a building book and animal sleeping bag from Sylvia.

He enjoyed his Gabba shirt from Mimi.

He will get his presents from Mom and Dad when Daddy returns from hiking!

Helmet boys!!

First stitches!!

Eli is the first in the family to get stitches. He fell off his tricycle onto the driveway and likely hit a rock. Of course he didn't have a helmet (but we bought one today!!). So he had a small cut in the back of his head. I was expecting the worst. Joe is away, and I have 3 kids and have to hold one down while they do this. Praise God, Eli did awesome. He didn't even cry, which is pretty remarkable considering how much lidocaine hurts!!! Then he got one stitch and he was done. He did great, as did the other 2 watchers!! We then went to dairy queen for an ice treat that everyone enjoyed!!

During the game Eli became a cute little boy who charmed the older grandpa next to me and convinced him to share his nachos with him. Then sat there and ate half the bag of popcorn himself!!!

Graham's ball

Game ball

Well after the 4 TH inning the shortstop pointed at Joe (wearing a KU shirt) who was holding up Luke (wearing a KC hat) and threw him the ball!!!!

I was saying to Joe we are lucky Graham doesn't seem jealous. Then of course he starts asking when he will catch a ball.

Then between halfs of the 5th inning
A guy came and gave Graham a ball also!!!

Garage sales

Today is a big yard sale day in a surrounding neighborhood. So I got up early and left before any kids were awake and went out looking. I found some good games for the boys as well as this cool tool bench. With our builders constructing Erin's room they have been into building. So now they have a place to build and had kid tools to do it with. The saws were removed, the safety goggles got some duct tape as Graham broke them already but they have had a great morning, pounding in nails and sanding!!
