Soccer Game

A few weeks ago, we went with our neighbors, the Earls down to Salt Lake for a Real soccer game. We left Friday afternoon and drove to Milad to their cabin. In the living room there were all sorts of fun toys for kids... and Eli loved the mechanical horse!
And a few pictures from the game...

 When we checked the weather, there was a 60% chance of rain and it was supposed to be pretty cold, so we dressed Eli accordingly. Once we got there, we didn't see a single cloud. Eli started the game with socks, shoes, pants, a jacket, a plain onsie under the "soccer" onsie, and a hat and left the game wearing LOTS of sunscreen, his hat, a plain onsie and his diaper. It was nice to have been surprised by WARM weather for once!

Soccer games aren't as mellow as baseball games, the fans were crazy! Actually, that soccer ball in the picture was given to the section of the stadium with the 'most energetic fans'.Poor Eli had the same reaction to the screaming fans as he did the train, but by the end of it we all got used to it.

Thanks to the Earls for coming with us!

On the move!

When in Utah, Eli started army crawling and less than a week later he was using his legs. It's been so fun watching him learn and grow. It still takes me by surprise when I walk into a room after getting a drink of water or doing dishes in the kitchen to find Eli getting into anything and everything within his little reach.

Even if the living room is completely clean, he looks for obstacles. 
 I have LOVED being off track this semester. I swear there isn't anything better than being able to be home with my baby. But, at times it gets a little lonely... soooooo we have play dates when the weather is nice. :)
 Carter, Eli and Alora... aren't they so cute?!

We had so much fun in California. We flew in on Monday(April 11) and Craig flew out on Saturday while Eli and I stayed for a few more days then DROVE out to Utah with my mom.
 He just laughs and laughs when he gets on the swing it is so. dang. cute.
 My dad and I at the Giants/Dodgers game. I'm bummed we didn't get a picture of Craig and I there!

 mhmm, I just love those chubby little legs in shorts.
:) We can't wait to go back this summer for swim lessons!

Here are some more pictures of our time in Utah. We always love going to Payson because we know that we will be able to see all of Craig's brothers and sisters(hint to my family...). Eli is in LOVE with his cousins. He thinks it is so funny to watch them jump and play. I can't wait until he's old enough to play with them too! Here's a few pictures of Eli, Aunt Kristina, Uncle James and his cousin Keaton.

Our Musician

During the break between semesters, we were able to stop in Utah and California for a nice vacation! Over the next few days, we'll be posting pictures from the trip. We first stopped to visit Craig's family in Utah. Eli was introduced to the piano and he absolutely LOVED it.

Here's a little clip of Eli playing on the keyboard that Grandma and Grandpa W. let us have.
Music is one of the only things that can really calm him down...I swear he's going to be a musician.
