Dump Trucks and Excavators and Front Loaders...Oh My!

Can you imagine driving a dump truck or scooping with an excavator? Well, we don't have too. Eli and I did this all afternoon. We were able to beep the horns and climb in the buckets. It was so fun. Thank you for taking us grandma, grandpa and uncle Keegan.

Lessons in Geometry

Aiden: Watermelons are round like a triangle.

Cousins are so much fun!

We went to Indiana this weekend for Great Grandma's 80th Birthday party and had so much fun. Our cousin Logan and Trevor are the best! They played so many games with us we were tired for two days. We sure loved playing with them and Aunt Teri and Uncle Dennis.

Aiden:Mine!!! (and pulls his blanket out of reach)
Aiden reaches to steal Eli's blanket.
Eli: Ma!! (Eli speak for Mine)
Aiden grabs his own blanket
Aiden: Mine!!
Eli imitates grabbing his own blanket.
Eli Ma!!
