Grandpa & Grandmommy Meet Miss Kate

Grandpa & Grandmommy (Greg's Parents) FINALLY got to meet little Miss Kate. We had a great visit together & even got to enjoy some time together at the cabin.

Lucas & Grandpa at Lake Arrowhead...sunny, but blistering cold! We can't wait to get back to that warm fire at the cabin...

Grandpa gives the kids some special attention...

Some proud grandparents! Grandmommy quickly figured out Kate's penchant for knee rides...I don't know who wore who out with all that bouncing!

Paulo & Lucas in Lake Arrowhead

Lucas had his FIRST sleepover a few weekends ago...Paulo stayed with Daddy & Lucas in Lake Arrowhead while Kate & Poppa had some quality time together at home. We had fun exploring the mountains and looking for the racoon & bear tracks at the arboretum the first day. But perhaps the MOST fun was jumping from the bunk beds onto the couch! Now thats good 'ole fashion pajama party fun!

Preparing to launch...

Introducing, the FLYING FOUR-YEAR-OLDS!!!

An after-dinner puppet show (featuring spiders, bats & bugs) is always a nice way to end the day.

Poppa's 25Y College Reunion - Beloit, WI

This past weekend, the family headed to the midwest to visit old friends and their families at the 25 year reunion at Beloit College in Wisconsin. It was great fun to see everyone and especially fun to hang out with the Eley clan. Enjoy the pics!

Victoria & Lucas play some hide & seek on the grounds of the campus.

Lucas & Katherine are serious about Cubs baseball (playing the Brewers in Milwaukee)

Kate yells "go Cubs" (slobber included).

Baseball makes me so happy :o)
