I suppose if this is going to get updated I need to do it today before I'm without internet for most of the week.

The big news around here is that I'm officially older! Saturday I turned 24 - it feels just like 23 which I suppose is a good thing. My friend Amy & I were both commenting about the fact that 25 sounds old while 24 doesn't - strange, huh? She hits that mark before me in December ;) In 5-10 years we'll probably look back and say 'What were we thinking?! We were sooooo young back then!'

Elliot spent his first night away from home at Grandma & Grandpa's house. I've looked through the pictures and it looks like he had one heck of a time! I'm glad he does so well with his Grammy & Grampy & enjoys being with them. He got to ride around the drive-way on the lawn mower, took a stroller ride, played with the cats, got to swing in his new swing and is not best friends with Lucky. Apparently Lucky had a grand time licking his feet and Elliot was soaking it all up & giggling his head off.

Petey & I went to a wedding for some of our friends - Zeke & Abby. It was nice to be able to relax & not have to corral or quiet down a little one. We were BOTH able to have an actual conversation at the same time which has been rare lately. Elliot is an active little man & likes to be on the go all the time!

Sunday Amy came over to hang out & eat at The Cafe with us. It was delicious as always - YUM!! We made a random trip to Wal-Mart for caramel & light bulbs & then hung out at our place. We watch some Arrested Development and built stuff with Elliot's legos. Petey dug out some of our games so we played Blokus & Life - it was a great time. I even ended up winning Life!! That doesn't happen all that often........

Anndee came to see us too & it was great to sit & relax for awhile with her. My parents met us at Pizza Ranch for supper. Elliot was excited to see us although he wasn't sure who he wanted to see first: Mommy, Auntie Anndew or Daddy.....decisions, decisions. Mommy won though ;) We had a good meal & then PeteyPie had to head out. It was a little later than usual but he still made it to Dubuque by 10.

Elliot and I are taking off today. When, is still up for discussion ;) Our clothes are ready & most of his stuff is too but there are a few of the smaller details I've got to finish first.....
