Memorial Day weekend

It's officially summer!

Poppy's girl

Mema and Papa and their great-grandkids

After a while, Price would just lay back in his float and wanted me to hand-feed him puffs...what a life!

Happy boy!

Marshmallow boy!

He lasted a whole 2 minutes on the boat...the noise and motion put him right to sleep

Ellery really was happy...just too busy to pose for pics

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the lake, loving every minute of it! Ellery could barely sleep the night before we left and her first word the next morning was, "Austin!" Price had not been to Austin since Hurrication of 2008, when he was not even a month old. While I miss that little baby, I was extremely happy to be sleeping all night while we were there this time around.

My grandparents were visiting from Kansas and so we enjoyed spending some time with them. Ellery greeted both of them with hugs and kisses the minute we arrived. She really is a social butterfly, much more social than I was at her age as my mom keeps reminding me. Ellery had Poppy's full attention all weekend, helping drive the boat, swimming, and having a nap/bedtime partner! She is loving the pool, and getting braver and braver in the water. In fact, she was able to swim the entire width of the pool all by herself.
Price just smiled his way through the weekend. Have you noticed that his helmet is gone? We finally got to retire the helmet last week. The time actually flew by and we are very glad we went through with it. Price enjoyed the pool, took a great nap the entire boat ride, and just chilled as usual. He has become really interested in the food we are eating and enjoyed nibbling on some "table food" in addition to his baby food.
We came home late Monday, after a sun-filled day. We had run out of diapers and so Price had to ride home in a pink Dora pull-up. We put Ellery in a pull-up too and told her before we left Austin that we needed to make sure and change her into a diaper when we get home (pull-ups don't always cut it for her at night). Her memory is amazing. She is always remembering little details of places we have been before or things we have done, and if she is in a new place she usually comments, "I've never been here before." Okay, so we get home really late and she is sound asleep. As Nathan is carrying her upstairs, she lifts her head up off his shoulder and whispers, "Remember dad, I need a diaper.

Price is growing up too fast! He's a cutie just like his big sister. Lauren has asked me, "When can we go to the lake house again, I love that place!"
