It was Evan's First "Yo Gabba Gabba" show, and Eliana's first live show of any kind. I can't believe how well behaved they were! This photo says it all; Eliana, at only 6 months, completely enjoyed the show! We had such a great time, the show wasn't too long, or too short. Just right. I think Eliana is officially a fan of the show. Evan's best friend CJ came along with his Mommy and Daddy. Everyone had a great time.

Where's the Band?

The only times that Evan has been to Rose Tree Park, were when he was there to see bands play. So when we went there this weekend, Evan wanted to know why the band didn't leave their drums. Here he is asking me what happened to the band. What impresses me most, was that he was asking for specific instuments; kick drum, floor tom, cymbals, and horns. Most of which he learned about on Yo Gabba Gabba. And we were told "no television until he's 3!" Oh well. Evan and I played hide and seek on the stage and even did some tap dancing. The only audience we had were some crickets.

iPhone Fun

Daddy had off of work today, and since Mommy had to go to the Dentist this morning, I took the kids to the park. Evan had lots of fun on the slide, and Eliana even went down the slide for the first time. (I was holding her of course.) I took a few shots with the new iPhone 4, I think they came out pretty good. All of the features on the phone are great...except for the phone part. Yeah, I think they forgot about that part. Drops every other call. Takes great photos though!

Brother & Sister

I realized today, that with all the monthly portraits I do, I never get to take Evan and Eliana together. Today, we tried for the first time. It's hard to get them to stay still long enough, but we still manage to get some fun/funny pictures of them.

Some Fun Photos From A Super Fun Day -post by Mommy

We had such a super fun day today. Evan and Eliana's cousins Mikey, Louie and Baby William invited us to spend the day with them at the Garden State Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill NJ. Evan had the best time there, he didn't want to leave. I had to pull the "they're closing now, it's time to go home" card. It didn't really work, as we were almost at the door when he took off running back in. I can't blame him, it was a fun place.

My favorite thing there was the huge light bright wall. I wish we had one at home.

Evan also enjoyed the light bright wall, but he had the most fun in the sports room.

Eliana enjoyed Baby William most of all...
I don't know what makes me laugh more, Eliana pulling poor William's ear, the expression on poor Williams face, or my Mom's expression!! HAHA!!

She could not keep her hands off of him!

Later on, after dinner, we headed over to Rose Tree Park for their free concert event (which I think they have almost every single night of the week).  Eliana had fun rolling on the blanket and pulling at grass while watching Evan run run running all over the place.  The kids there were friendly too, not like some of the kids we encountered at the museum.  I don't know what it is about Evan that attracts these kinds of kids.  He was playing so nicely by himself in the plumbing area (Uncle Bill would have been so proud) when this kid just starts grabbing pipes right out of Evan's hands.  Of course there was no parent in sight, so I went and hung out with Evan to protect him and to get his pipes back.   Later on while Evan was playing at the fruit stand the same kid walloped Evan on the shoulder with a plastic eggplant for no reason. I said out loud "There is no hitting!" but his Mom didn't even notice she was too busy chatting away with her friend totally oblivious to anything her kid was doing.   Then not only five minutes later when Evan was walking to the next exhibit the same kid runs up and punches Evan in the chest!  This time his Mom noiticed and says "Did he just punch that kid?"  I felt like saying "yeah, dummy, you're kid's been beating up my kid all day!"  But I just wanted to get him away from that evil kid.  So I spent the rest our time there avoiding that kid. Evan was having so much fun though that it didn't seem to bother him too much.  It was such a beautiful night out too.  And we weren't even bothered by mosquitoes.  Evan's poor little leggies are covered in mosquito bites. 

Look how happy my baby is...

Look how much Evan loves his baby sister...

I was trying to take a nice photo of the three of us...

This is just a few seconds later...
And a few more seconds after that...(that's Evan trying to give Eliana a hug and kiss)  Time to go home!!
