Fall Baseball

Evan started Fall Tee Ball this week, with his new team, the "Ironpigs," named after the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs, a minor league baseball team in Pennsylvania. He has a few of his team mates from his Phillies team in the spring, but there's also some new faces. Coach Nikki is back and once again doing a great job as head coach. I volunteered again to help coach the team. It really has been a great experience and I think Evan likes having his daddy as a coach.

Getting 5 year olds to line up like this is harder than it looks...

 Evan and his buddy Conner! Conner was on the Phillies team with Evan in the spring and was in Evan's preschool class last year. So they go way, way back.

There's about 3 hours between the time of picking Eliana up and picking Evan up from school. 
So on this day, we stopped at the playground right by Evan's school. 

One thing I'll say about the new iPhone 5, is that the camera is way better than on the older phones.

After School

So, like I said, I was picking them up from school most of the week. We would usually go to a park, to let them play until dinner time, or go to my place to play there.
Usually, as soon as I've picked Evan up and get him in the car, I'll take a photo of him and send it to his Mommy so she know's he's happy and has had a good day at school. 

This was Eliana and I at her favorite playground. The band on her head was from when she walked into the back of a chair at a hamburger place where we were having lunch.

Eliana were really getting into soccer, so much that they got a little out of hand going after the ball. Not sure if you can see the look on Eliana's face on this one.

Here's Evan after another day of school with a Capri Sun drink hanging out of his mouth.

Preschool Days.

I was home from work all this week, and finally got to spend some really good 'day to day' time with the kids; picking them up from school, going out for lunch/dinner, and spending some nights at my place. It's been great spending so much time with them. We had lots of fun for sure.

Some of Eliana's first artwork from preschool. This is Mommy: green hair, no nose.

This is me. That's not one eye, that's my nose, two tiny eyes and my goatee.

This is one she did in school. Evan, me, and Eliana.

Had to take a picture while picking her up, she was just too cute, and she was so excited for me to pick her up.

Weekend at Daddy's

Here it is! Eliana's watermelon that she planted! There are many more on the vines, but they are still quite small. We have pumpkins growing as well, but I think we may have planted them too late. (July)

Evan was checking out some of my old cameras. He didn't understand why you couldn't see the pictures right away on the back of the camera.

I think Mimi is feeling the full moon tonight. She's been a little wild. She climbed up the front tire of my mountain bike and perched herself on the handlebar. 

The tents are set up for a campout tonight! Hopefully they'll sleep!

Eliana's First Day.

What can I say? Could I be any more proud of my little girl? I think not. Eliana had her first day of preschool today, and she was so excited, she practically skipped to the car and couldn't wait to get to school. She did great today. She really did. We dropped her off with no problems whatsoever, no crying, nothing! I think she's going to have a great year with Mrs. Burwell.

I think mommy picked out the perfect dress.

Eliana's Pre School Orientation

Eliana all dressed up for pre school orientation. No sooner than I finished taking this photo, it started pouring huge raindrops and I had to pick her up and run with her in the house.

Eliana was so excited to go see her classroom and meet her teacher, Mrs. Burwell. 

Eliana seemed really comfortable in the classroom. I think she's really going to like her first day, which is tomorrow!

Yo Gabba Gabba at Sesame Place!

We had an AWESOME time today at Sesame Place with the Gabba gang and got to see a live show. Evan and Eliana even got to play in the water park for a few hours, it was nice and warm out today.
