This is my week for spending time with adorable little misses, it seems! Yesterday I had a date with Eliana, and we spent all afternoon reading books, building with blocks, chasing after Oliver the kitty cat, and inspecting rocks in the backyard. Eric and Tessa graciously allow us to claim her as our niece, and if she didn't already have us wrapped tightly around her finger (and she most certainly does!), the fact that she's started saying Uncle and Auntie whenever we visit has sealed the deal.
I'm so enthralled with the pictures from our Montana adventure that I can't resist putting up a few more. Derek will be handing off the whole kit and kaboodle this weekend, and then, hoooo boy, you'll be getting an eyeful!
And have I mentioned, once or possibly 5000 times, what an incredible treat and privilege it is to enjoy things like this with your very own brothers and sisters? Oh, the memories we're making!
