Preschool Graduation

Eli's preschool had their graduation ceremony today!
The kids sang songs, received their diplomas and then we broke for lunch. We all had fun, and I'm happy to say Eli didn't have to use the bathroom during the presentation (like he did at Christmas, causing us to miss the singing). We've been so happy with his preschool experience so far, and can't wait for fall.

I can't stop laughing at all of the funny faces Eli makes when I try to take his picture. At least they're not of the back of his head anymore!

Congratulations Eli! We love you!

Dozer Day II

Ben finally emailed me the pics from his phone, so here's the rest of Dozer Day 2011!

Here's a random pic of Eli by a Front Loader, not sure where this was. Okay, Ben just told me this was at someone's house when we picked up our bathroom vanity off of craigslist.

I really love how happy Eli looks in all of these pictures! His love of heavy machinery is unwavering, it's an obsession really. We were at Powell's the other day, and he choose yet another book on machines. I told the checker I already knew more about heavy equipment than I ever cared to know. Eli really is his own person, this didn't come from us!

Dozer Day

Eli and Ben went to Dozer Day last weekend.
Eli really wanted to go last year, but got the stomach flu the day before and had to miss it. He's been asking every couple of weeks over the last year if it was coming up, well it finally came. They hold it in a Quarry in Vancouver, WA. Kids get to drive real machines, and play construction themed games. It's Eli's dream come true!

Lilly Lou

I'm not sure where she came up with this, but here's her "silly face"!

Lilly loves to try on everyone's hats. She empties out the whole basket, then tries on all the hats. Some work better than others, Ben's beanie is a little big. She's such a girl!
