Eliza and the Sportscar

Eliza loved her recent visit to Grandpa and Grandma's house, particularly playing with cousin Nathan and all the fun kiddie stuff they had there - especially the red motorized sportscar!

She loved driving the car, but had a little trouble her first time behind the wheel...

Eliza's first car accident!

That was a great photo of the aftermath, but to make it even better...we have a crash captured on video!

We're totally using this against her when she's sixteen and wants to borrow the car.

Eliza's national TV cameo!


Eliza waited patiently while Mr. Andy talked to the nice lady and Elmo and the Cookie Monster. She was being really good and cute, so Daddy gave her a kiss on the cheek....just as the camera guy moved in and put her on live TV! 

Eliza and her Sesame Street Pals

We got E up really early this morning, so that she could come to Mommy and Daddy's work to meet some furry friends: Elmo and Cookie Monster! She wanted to hang out with these guys so much that she almost wandered onto the set during a live interview.

Goodbye, PDX!

Just got to the airport and ready to fly.

Two LuLews?

Eliza was confused when she met Grammy LuLew's sisters, Karen (in photo) and Patti. She thought there were three LuLews. She loved them all.

Powell's Books was the first of many fun stops in our shopping trip through downtown PDX this morning.


reading in bed on a Sunday morning

It was a pleasant sight to peek into E's room this morning to see her lying in bed reading. She just woke up, turned on her light and got busy reading. Adorable.

Dancing in the big castle

When the show ended at Medieval Times they herded everyone into the lobby gift shop where techno music is playing at full volume. Eliza went crazy, and ran all over doing her funky moves - we had difficult getting her to leave.

Enjoying the tournament at Medieval Times

Eliza loved watching the knights bonk each other with swords while she ate chicken and ribs with her hands.

Mommy told Eliza to put flip flops on to wear to the beach. She did, except they were Daddy's flip flops. The hat was her own special touch.

hello from Lake Lily!

We had a fun morning going to the antique show at the civic center, and then stopping by Lake Lily park to feed the birds. Here's Mommy and E by the lake...

hello from Lake Lily

And with Grandma Cathy!

Pretending to trick or treat.

Now when E doesn't want to be lectured to or photographed she'll pretend to fall asleep. Good to know she already has bear attack survival down.


Fun family photo!

It's rare that we get photos featuring all three of us, so when we got this emailed to us by our friends The Sullivans, we were thrilled. Looks like a fun day at the fountain.

Feeding the birds

In between taking bites of stale bread, Eliza fed the birds at Lake Lily. We also played on the playground, had lemonade at the Farmer's Market and ran into her favorite teacher - Mrs. Weider.

On a lizard hunt

Eliza loves chasing the backyard lizards. She almost caught this little guy. (Sorry for the crooked video!)

We're out for dessert. Eliza isn't satisfied with just her own so she's taken over Daddy's, too.
