A few warm days

We actually had a few warm days last weekend. Papa Norm and Grandma Jane came to play.

Fun Days

We had such a fun day today! We went to Storytime. Papa Ray and Kim came to play. We went to the middle school track meet. We went and played on the new playground toys at the elementary school. Nathan and Elizabeth had so much fun! I had to drag Elizabeth away kicking and screaming because she didn't want to leave.

Elizabeth in the morning



I love going in to Elizabeth's room to get her in the morning. She's always so soft in her jammies and she's always so excited to start the day. She likes to wave good morning to Nathan when we walk out of her room and then she loves to eat her bananas, cereal, and milk for breakfast in her high chair. It's so cute!

Peekaboo and Pigtails

We bought an outside cabinet that we can keep our winter coats, snowpants, boots, hats, gloves, and mittens in. They kids love to play in the cabinet and Elizabeth in particular loves to peekaboo!

Also, I'm trying to get Elizabeth to wear pigtails. She doesn't have much hair yet and keeps pulling them out. They are very cute though!

Photos with Family


Elizabeth loves to "talk" on the phone to Grandma Jane. She just jabbers away and likes to use her favorite words. No and uh-oh are favorites. She also likes to make animal noises.


Playing on the table


Nathan frequently tells me that Auntie Laura is his best friend. He loves her so much!

Fun at the River

The weather is finally starting to warm up. We spent some time down at the river the other day. Nathan loves to throw rocks! Elizabeth wanted to copy him, but mostly ended up getting her shoes soaking wet. She tried though!

Fun at Riverfront Park

The day before Bloomsday, I had to go to downtown Spokane to pick up my packet. We had some fun playing in the park!



Elizabeth's first ride down the big slide!

Pretty day

Look Dad!

I ran Bloomsday the next day and finished in 1 hour, 14 minutes. It's a 7.5 mile race so I was very happy with my time! Hopefully, I'll do even better next year.

Nathan's kite


It's spring so it's rather windy. Nathan now has a kite to play with! He and Jeremy had some fun learning how to make a kite fly.

Elizabeth being cute

Elizabeth has been doing so many cute things lately. She likes to blow on her food. We always blow on her hot food. So now she thinks she needs to blow on all her food before she eats it.

Whenever she finds something small and silver, she thinks it needs to be plugged into the computer. For example, she tried to plug a small carton of dental floss into the computer this morning. I guess she thought it looked like an Mp3 player.

She's almost 15 months and still so tiny! She's still in 12 month clothes and is almost 20 pounds. It's so cute to see her walk under the table or under the fridge door. Nathan was MUCH bigger at this age, so her smallness is very endearing.

Animal noises are becoming very fun. She's getting good at these sounds: cow, dog, duck, horse. She's trying with the others too. ]


She's so adorable when she chews. Here she is eating bananas.


A new favorite game is playing peekaboo at the back door.


Peekaboo!

Gosh, it's loud! Nathan has been wearing these ear muffs around a lot when Jeremy's been cutting wood with chainsaws and chipping. Elizabeth wanted to try them on.

Conversations

Funny conversations heard around the house: Elizabeth: "What's the definition of the word Mother?" Nathan: "She's...
