crawling and crawling

In Honor of MJ

Aidan's best imitation move...we watched some (a few are a little weird) of Michaels videos
and Aidan was up and dancing the entire time. Actually he would watch then try to copy!

By dawns early light...

Dan woke Aidan up at 6:00 a.m. this
morning to fishing at the park with Grandpa!
Aidan caught 3 fish!

Getting them to look together...

First she looks up and smiles...
Then she looks down and he looks up...

FINALLY - both at the same time!

Father's Day Fun

Aidan's handmade card...really only he can say it best!
We took pictures at the Photo booth at the mall - except there
wasn't any way to make Elli look up at the camera???!
(The lottery tickets were from mom!)

A book for dad with the last page altered...

Picture on the last page of Elli and Dad sleeping!

Father's Day...

Dan was blindfolded (Aidan's plan) and driven to his fave pizza place
(mom enjoyed driving around in circles and throwing him off the trail)!
Then we went over to Arizona Center for a movie!
Dan sporting the swordfish
shirt Aidan picked out!
Red Devil Pizza!

MOVIE TIME (this photo was taken before Aidan
chewed the button off the shirt during the movie
and swallowed it!!! Yikes..don't even know what to
do about that one!)

Elli couldn't sit through the movie
so we waited for them!

We are so blessed to have this man in our lives taking care of us in every way! We LOVE him!

Quote of the Day...

"What are the Bible songs about why God doesn't want us to be grounded?" - Aidan

Extra, Extra...

Dan took Aidan and Elliot to the Tempe Town Lake and the FOX news was there filming kids on the splash pad! Here is Aidan going down the slide...

Grandpa and Elliot

Even though I take hundreds of pictures
I really didn't have a good one of Elliot and her Grandpa.
I took this one on his birthday and made a mental note
to take many more!

Castles and Coasters

Mimi took the kids to castles and coasters for a late
birthday present to Isaiah! Aidan loved the rides that were
his size but steered clear of the bigger ones!
Elli loved to watch them scream from a safe seat!

toothy grin!

Her first tooth!

All in the Family!

Uncle Mark and Aunt Sarah,
Aidan, Elliot, Dan and me!
Uncle Mark and Aunt Sarah

Only way to get a family shot
(except Elli did keep pulling Aidan's hair)!

Grandma & Grandpa!

We had our photos taken at Sears as a gift to Dan's parents for their 40th wedding anniversary! A little hectic to say the least...getting everyone to smile is not easy! Elli was so serious for most of the family shots, but she hammed it up when it was just us!

brownie batter spoon

Is it ok to give a seven month old the spoon
from the brownie batter? I guess it doesn't matter
since she didn't get any in her mouth!
Quick bath in the sink and it's like
she was never covered in chocolate!

San Diego...

Cousins and Boogie Boards!

Elliot's version of playing on the beach!

Good times!

Sea World

Imperial Beach Pier

Still giving free rides!

Elli sleeping in her pack n play - she slept for about
2 hours under the umbrella with the lull of the ocean waves!

Aidan hard at work building something!

We had a wonderful vacation in San Diego and our first family
vacation with Elliot! FUN, FUN, FUN & fun!
