Early summer?

Last weekend Phoenix reached triple digits, which is a little early even for here. We decided it was time to set up Silas' splash pad. I'm so glad it survived the long 8 months in the garage! 

Silas takes to water like plant to sunlight. In fact, I think Silas would live outside if we let him! 

He spent a good hour and a half in the splash pad, even after we turned the hose off. 

And the next day he couldn't wait to get back out in it! Unfortunately, he had to wait until after our busy day of church, errand and a nap.

He was so wiped out that he crawled up in his rocking chair.

When he woke up he bee lined it right to the back door and asked "peas" to go out! 

After some coaxing, I was able to get him to try out his swing again. 

He was a little hesitant at first.

But warmed up after a few seconds of being pushed. 

Fun with Auntie Andi

Sometimes, when Papa Joe has to work, Auntie Andi steps up to the plate to watch Silas.

She loves to play with him on his fun jungle gym in Mema and Papa's back yard.

It's amazing that he can actually climb up the ladder all by himself! 

It's only a few steps, but it's a lot of hard work!

He still won't go down the slide on his own though. But he sure likes to hang out in the little club house.

Playing is serious business for sure!

And so is eating mac and cheese!

Thanks for watching Silas, Auntie Andi!

Easter Weekend!

We had a wonderful Easter weekend!

We started the morning of the 7th by going to the Wigwam's 2nd annual Egg Roll. We didn't get to hunt any eggs, but we spent time walking around and taking pictures.

We made a stop at the mall to take a picture with the Easter bunny. Unfortunately we don't have a scanner and I don't have a digital copy of it. It went over as well as it did last year. Needless to say, Silas was not pleased and wouldn't sit next to the bunny without mommy or his computer toy.

Later that afternoon we went to Jenica and Van's egg coloring party and met up with our buddies Cody, Ana, and Logan.

Easter morning Silas woke up bright and early and was super excited to see the goodies from the Easter bunny. The bubbles were the best part!

We got all dressed for church and took a few pictures before headed out for the the service.

After church, Mema and Papa came over. The Easter bunny left a basket for Silas at Mema's house, so she brought it over when her and Papa came over for Easter Lunch. They got to watch as Silas hunted for eggs.

It was so neat to see how excited Silas was this year! His sense of adventure and wonder never cease to amaze me!
