Road Trip to Ojai!

Last week Dan and I got bored so we drove to California! The trip was loads of fun. We stayed in St. George for a night and then headed down to Ojai to visit Brad and Crystal.

Beach family!

Eli loved the sand. He ate most of it.
Dan and Brad head for open water in the kayaks.

TJ and Tirzah Come to Visit!

We were graced with a visit a few weeks ago by some of our Coloradan buddies TJ and Tirzah! It was great to see them and we had a grand ol time visiting and hanging out. TJ snapped a few shots. Here are a few highlights.

I Fell asleep pretty quick on in the night...

Eli loved having new people in the house!

The Apricot Tree Comes Down

There comes a time in every home owner's life when they have to remove a dead tree or two...in our case...all our trees are dead....well...most of them are anyway. A few weeks ago we (Dan) set out for our (Dan's) most ambitious tree removal project of all; The Apricot Tree. It was 7 hours of back-breaking work for all of us (Dan) and at the end we (Dan) were all very tired. Go us (Dan)!
I'm helping by telling everyone what to do...

Dan is helping by actually doing it.

Eli amused himself by eating his feet

and looking cute.

Eli has discovered the fun world of peek a boo. It's a hoot! He hides behind the quilt on his crib and then pops up to say hi. Then he crouched back down and waits for the next pop up. It's a never ending party at the Garfields!
