Saturday was a great day -- we got to get Eli's hair cut, go out to Alta Loma for Janae's birthday party, and see our friends Matt & Shayne, and their two little ones. It was a lot of fun, swimming, hanging out, and just having a good time. Here are some pictures, since I know you're dying to see them, LOL. :)

Here is Eli's before the haircut picture (complete with cheesy grin):

And here's the after haircut picture (complete with spiky mohawk the lady gave him):

Here are Matt, Shayne, Remi and Corr.
We were so glad that they crashed the party. :) Their kids are just too cute.
Although, Remi wasn't so sure about being woken up from her nap.

Then there's Renee, who is just too fun to hang out with.
We are glad she's here for a while.

Eli chilling in the pool. He really took to the water well, and loved playing with Dadda.

And he loved splashing himself.

And dumping water from a cup onto Dadda's head.

He even loved it when Dadda retaliated.

Here's the uber-posh Remi, looking gorgeous and pouty.
She still wasn't sure about the whole swimming thing, especially being woken abruptly from what one can only imagine was a really great dream. :)

Corr, on the other hand, loved being in the water (you can't tell by this picture, but he really did!). He was splashing and smiling almost the whole time.

Eli had fun counting backwards from ten until he got to "three, two, one -- blastoff!" and then he was catapulted into the air. Too much fun!

And here he is being braver than I expected -- he went down the water slide (with a little push from me) all by himself! And the best part was that he wasn't scared one bit, he just wanted to keep going again and again! (One of my favorite things that he does nowadays is when he's done doing something physical like that, he always says, "That was fun!", no matter what it was.) I love this little kiddo.
(You may have to click on the picture to see the whole thing.)

And here's the birthday girl! We had a lot of fun hanging out with family and friends and celebrating Janae's 25th! Happy birthday, Janae!

I love the pictures!! Nathan throwing Eli, him splashing himself, and "the slide". I can still hear Eli saying that in my head, from when we went to the park while you guys were out here. I cannot believe he went down it!! How did you pull that?
Anyways, it looks like you guys had a great time. Wish I was out there to join.
