Random Fun

The weather finally turned nice out. While it didn't last more then a few days, it was wonderful! This was a picnic we had out back. Of course, the umbrella was not enough to keep Beth from getting a terrible sunburn on her cheeks.
It did take me almost 20 minutes to convince her that she didn't need her coat.
Mary and Sam were out to visit this weekend and drove this beast in. The kids were thrilled with the "big red truck." We had a great weekend and were very sorry to see them go.
Eric has enjoyed getting letters in the mail from his pen-pals. (This is one way we encourage him to practice reading and writing.) I know this picture is out of focus but it was too fun not to post.
Eric's new guardian angel poster. He loves it!
I found him like this today. Why he needs to perch on the couch like that just to watch an hour glass run out is beyond me. Maybe I should get him out more.
Tonight when we had family night Eric started doing what he calls his "stretches." I don't know where he gets it from, but he was having fun.
And of course anything Eric does, Beth does too.

We also had Natalie and Laura with us over the weekend while Natalie prepared for her national exam--which she aced! Congrats, Natalie! I'm just sorry we forgot to break out the camera while they were here.
