Float Trip

Eli's first trip to my grandma's house and the Current River was a success!  Here is most of the gang before the big float.  Grandma and Grandpa stayed back with Eli.  Pictured from left to right is Anthony's brother Nick, Anthony, Me, Anthony's sister Emily and boyfriend Justin and Anthony's brother Kevin.

Eli's watching the boats go by...very interesting!
I thought this was a cute picture of Kevin, Anthony and Nick!

The Educator in Me...

Although I'm not teaching in a school, I have been teaching all the same.  Eli LOVES to read books...he even giggles at silly voices!  He's also very good at not trying to take the book out of my hands and eat it (a feat for a 7 month old).  Instead he usually leans back and looks at the pictures as I read.  Here is daddy and Eli with one of his favorites...."Oh My, Oh My, Oh Dinosaurs!"

Our (Quick) Family Vacation

This past weekend, Anthony and I traveled to my grandma's home on the Current River in Southern MO.  We had so much fun with my parents, Anthony's brother's Kevin and Nick and Anthony's sister Emily and boyfriend Justin.  Friday evening we took in a drive-in much fun!  Saturday we floated the Current and Sunday we came home.  On our journey back home we stopped by two of my favorite places in MO...Johnson Shut-ins and Elephant Rocks State Park.  It was a beautiful day for both and we all had a lot of fun!  Even Anthony...the big kid....had fun climbing all over the rocks with his brothers.
