a rare family photo

in the car







i tried to get him to show off his sweet new top teeth, but he wasn't really having any of it. you'll be pleased to note that we started using the toddler car seat instead of the infant one. homeboy is like 5 lbs over the weight limit for the baby one now, which sucks because i can't let him fall asleep in the car anymore unless i want to wake him up when we get to where we are going. but, safety first, dudez! thanks to ed & christie for the car seat :)

AFTER the freak mt. ramblers







eli went to his first rock show (well, hippie jam band show) tonight. i didn't take any pictures of the show because it's really hard to juggle a baby, a camera, a diaper bag, and a pint of beer all at the same time. but he had fun!

elijah's cousins are visiting right now

Rainey, Petula, and Rowan (from left to right) are all here visiting with their mom (my sister Katie) and tomorrow their dad will join them. Rowan and Rainey are almost 5 (in August) and Petula is a little over 3.



They are a handful, but they sure are cute!

he really enjoyed the swings today, in his own laid-back way.



aunt katie cannot help but pick on eli

sorry, it's been a few days.









eli had his first trip to the beach! the pictures i took didn't turn out so great, because i used a crappy old camera instead of my nice new one. i didn't want to get sand in the new one! eli seemed to kind of enjoy getting his feet wet in the chilly pacific ocean, but i think next year it will be more fun.
