Another First

Lilly's first homemade dress!
I got the idea off of a blog here
it was so easy to make I want to make more.

Weekend Fun

We stopped at Multnomah falls on the way to the Bonneville Fish Hatchery.

Lilly hanging out at the Fishing Event.

Eli and Ben fishing in a barrel.
Even though there were enough fish to reach in and touch we didn't catch one.
Eli hasn't made the connection between the fish that swim, and the fish that we eat. Maybe it was better we didn't catch anything, Eli didn't really care and we all had fun!

Potty Trained

Dare I jinx it?
Eli has been going on the potty all by himself for a week.
He never needs to be reminded and he's only had one accident.
I can't believe it, but I think he's officially potty trained!

It only took us 5 attempts over about a year.
Who knew the stomach flu was the key to success?
It turns out a bad diaper rash is more motivation to use the toilet than anything I could have thought of on my own.
At least something good came from our epic ELEVEN DAY stomach flu.
