Adventures in Eating

Now that Jadon's six months (post on that to come soon hopefully!) we're working on eating some solids. Such a fun process! He's getting better every day and I'm thankful that he's eating. Hopefully soon he'll be eating enough to allow him to sleep a little longer in the night. :-)

So far he's had bananas and pumpkin. The video is from the pumpkin. And he's not actually eating in the pictures but he does sit in the Bumbo when he eats so I thought they fit. Ha!

Ever since Eliana went to a party several months ago at a new play place in town called Madagascar she has been wanting me to take her. It's quite out of the way and not so easy to get there without a car so I've been putting it off. However, with the end of summer drawing near I decided to go for it. So, we got on the bus yesterday and went on an adventure! I have to admit I was impressed with the facilities and Eliana had a great time. Jadon even played a little bit in a walker so everyone had some fun. I'm thankful for fun activities to do around here and even more fun kids to do them with!

Real Camping

Drew and Eliana were finally able to put their camping and hiking skills to the test! They went up to a beautiful, mountain lake and camped for one night. Four other dads and six boys joined them. It was a crazy time! Fun was had by all and despite being cold at times and falling a lot (Eliana falls on flat ground, let alone walking up a mountain!) and some rain the first afternoon, she had a blast. Lots of fun memories for her and Drew. I'm so glad they were able to go!
