Summer is here :)

We were sooo excited to play outside today... it got up to 85 degrees! Unbelievable for April 10th in MI. We played at Auntie's playground twice, went to lunch at Bagger Daves & had a fantastic meal, Eric really enjoyed the ice cream & the choo choo train going around by the ceiling. We loved sitting outside on grand river too.

BDay Celebration with Cronenwett's

We went to Aunt Nancy's to celebrate Eric & Sarah's bday.... we had the best homeade spaghetti meal complete with breadsticks, salad & chocolate cake! Eric made himself at home right away.... Thanks so much Aunt Nancy!

and then he made himself right at home when no one was looking!
And then he went for the whole cake when he figured out he was busted!!

Cameron Q. - The unlikely driver! I love her. I love her more because she wanted to drive the new tractor Eric got for his bday when Eric & McKenna were playing right by her, but they would not drive the tractor. They only wanted Cameron to drive! And boy, does she like driving!

And Eric liked hitching a ride from Miss Q....
Cam, please keep your eyes on the road! You have precious cargo.

I think they love each other :) ..... remember they are cousins though.........

Jeff's brother & family were in town this weekend. Liam is more than a year older than Eric. Eric somehow already caught up to Liam's height & has passed him up......Liam doesn't care though. They still play racecars just like they used to!

Tractor Snacks

Eric is always asking for Tractor Fruit Snacks. If he sees anything green & yellow in the cupboard he is just yelling Tracty Tracty Tracty. I thought I was smart & took them out of the box & put them in the picnic basket of treats..... way high up in the cupboard. Little did I know that he would climb on top of the costco boxes at the bottom, then up the shelves to get it down..... This is when I walked in.... he was in heaven.
Then he noticed I was standing behind him.....

Then he smiles like this at me......because he knows that gets Mommy every time

Now he is using all the tricks in the book. Playing peek a boo......

But Really? How can you argue with him? He just wanted a snack.....
