Mike has been so available for the kids throughout the last two months, and Elliott has been eating it up! I'm sure Lucy loves it too, but she is in school so much that she doesn't get to enjoy it too much. Elliott is loving making space-ships with his Legos, and this day, he got Dad's help:
This is a random picture, but it is a sweet little Archie-Mommy moment. Look what a little snuggler he is!
By the way, he is a 9 pounder now! He is now, at 7 weeks old, the same size that Elliott was when he was born! He is a little chunky boy. He looks about the same size, he is just filled out; his skin just looks tighter. Super cute. Here is a picture of his little double-chin:
This is what his little legs used to look like...all wrinkly with loose skin:
And this is his roly-poly thighs now:
In other news, we have always had a big sinkhole right off of our driveway, and this spring the city decided to fix it. Enter SUPER EXCITED ELLIOTT. We sat outside and watched the construction, It was like Elliott's own private dream movie.
One weekend in May, Mike decided to take the kids camping at the sand dunes nearby to test out our new 1958 camper. Archie and I stayed home, and Mike and the kids had some adventures from Friday to Saturday.
Inside the camper.
Climbing the dunes.
This picture explains the buckets of sand that poured out of the laundry machines after the trip.
They fished a little bit on the trip. Fishing with the kids is always tricky because Mike is always helping, so he can't do much fishing, Elliott just likes to cast for a bit and then gets bored, but Lucy, without fail, ALWAYS catches a fish. Usually the first fish, the most fish, and the biggest.
She caught two like this. What a gal. She likes to fish, but isn't too fond of the fish themselves. I love the look on her face.
Thanks for taking the kids out Dad! Maybe next time Archie and I will join you!
