And while it's unfortunate that Eliza's arm has been taken hostage by a hot pink brick of plaster, her injury has provided the necessary 'breaking point' (get it?) I've been looking for to begin a friendly game of blogger catch up. It's not even worth expressing my hope that I'll keep this rewind brief, because looking at my track record, it would be a promise made in vain. IT IS ALWAYS IN VAIN!
Memorial day weekend , there was a solar eclipse. Andrew tackled this at home science project with deep, nerd like, enthusiasm.
Two days before Eliza took her spill from her bike, we met Aunt Jen and company for a lovely outing. Each having our own train enthusiast, we thought it would be fun to ride Frontrunner downtown to play at the splash pad at Gateway. It is much larger than city creek's and they permit children to play in swimsuits. We picked a good day considering it ended up being the hottest day of 2012.
We made it down to see Grandma Popcorn too. She is as special as can be. We all thought her roses were lovely; with the exception of Henry. Losing his balance (this is becoming a most unfortunate family trend lately), he fell backwards into a rose bush. They attacked! Henry was left with horrible scratches from the nasty thorns. Other than that mishap, we had a great visit.
