Our Camera Came Home

After a nice vacation in Illionis, our camera came home with new parts that make it work again. As a celebration, I'm going to post pictures and two (yes, you read correctly: two) videos.

Saturday Matt, Eleanor and I went to Garvin Woodlands Gardens for some festivites. It was a beautiful day. Eleanor and I played outside while Matt went to a chapel dedication service. They have built a beautiful new wood and glass chapel nestled in the woods. While Eleanor wasn't impressed by the architecture, she was impressed by the grass, leaves, and waterfall.

Every Monday morning Eleanor and I go to the library for story time. It is usually great fun. After story time, I let Eleanor look at books. Today she was interested in Maurice Sendak's lesser known works.

And now for the promised videos. The first is from last week. Eleanor has begun her journey as in bipedalism. She still needs Dumbo's feather most of the time. Today she walked across the room with a toy screwdriver in one hand and a book in the other. If she realizes that what she's holding is not supporting her, she sits down and goes back to Jungle Book style crawling.

This video is from tonight. Eleanor likes to put her toys in the tube for her bath. Tonight she found a more efficient method.

Wonderful. Cedar demands to get in the tube as soon as the water is running. We're looking forward to seeing you guys in person at the end of the month.

It was late, the videos took forever to upload...don't harrass me because of an extra 'e'. Dan Quayle was VP in my formative years.
