Our little handsome son...breaking into the bank safe! This safe was HUGE!
Micayla posing up against the safe deposit boxes, after her blue slushy...so her mouth matches her cool Skillet shirt! :)
By far one of my favorite photos...my two favorite boys!
Like Father, like son.
Auditions maybe? He has some good moves!
I purchased a whistle for him, so he is trying his hardest! He had it mastered later that day!
The outside was the most fun...in my opinion...and I think most of my family would agree. Eli was a brave climber.
You should see the close up of Z's face...she is terrified...she hated this slide.
My three wonderful children!
See Z climbing with her Daddy?
This kid and Eli had a blast throwing balls at one another...even though he was twice Eli's size, Eli didn't back down!
One of my favs of Micayla.
Z liked to lick these glass figures...gross!
Lots of climbing at the City Museum!!!!

Eli and I made cookies together yesterday...its always fun! Today we ate them for our 10am snack and as I was dunking my cookie in milk...he watched! Carefully every move. He dropped his cookie...accidentally ofcourse...and then "help, help...my cookie fell in the milk." As if the world was coming to an end!!! I said, "Eli be brave...reach down in the milk and grab your cookie." "But my hands will get all wet"...he informed me. I said, "thats ok, that is why we have napkins....remember God made you strong and brave...your a boy...you can get your cookie from the bottom of the milk glass." And he did...will all the bravery and gusto God gave him to be...well him...a boy! Sometimes I think its easy to forget that our children must be trained in the way they should go...and be! Eli needed to hear he had what he takes...and although the cookie rescue seems trival and miniscual (sp?)...its the foundational struture for him to build upon for the bigger things in life. Speak words of life and encouragement to our children...it makes them brave and beautiful. :)
PS: Eli wrote his name for the first time...I can't believe he is growing up so quickly. Writing his name and he is barely three!!!!!
