Thursday at the Park

Last Thursday night, the Paul family joined the Pinix and Carlisle families for an evening at Utica Square for music, food, and fun. This was our first time to this event that is held each Thursday night during the summer at Utica Square. What a great time it was, just hanging out with the kids and enjoying a "cheap" night out of the house! I hope that we are able to make this a more regular outing as Evelyn had a great time and we got to eat, dance, and laugh.

Our spot for the night

Man guys...it's hot!!

Can I Get Fries With That?

Well, my friends, the time has come and Evelyn has begun the journey to real food. She started her first solid food last Monday and so far is really enjoying it! The first few times were the most hysterical experiences I have had in quite a long time. The look on her face as she took her first bite, the raspberries full of food that she blew all over me, and the chasing her swiveling head with the spoon to make sure she got as much as possible all made this experience so enjoyable! Honestly, the first 3 or 4 times, she absorbed more of the food than she actually ate. But, now she is a pro and welcomes the spoon with a sly grin and hands grabbing for more! Following are some of the pictures from the second day...enjoy
OK, mom...I'm ready

Watch this!!
Success!! Yum, Yum
But, right back out it comes....She's so funny!
See, absorbed more than she swallowed

Catching Up

A few weeks ago Evelyn, Grams and Mommy took a road trip to Oklahoma City to visit Great Grandma and Aunt Karen. We stopped by the house for a visit and Evelyn was as entertaining as ever chewing on her favorite toy...the measuring spoons. We had a really nice time and enjoyed to visit. While we were at lunch, Evelyn had her first experience sitting in a high chair at the table with the "grown-ups." She is getting to be such a big girl!!
