Sleepovers and Other Random Photos

We'll start with the randoms...

First: This is Eli's self-chosen attire for trips to the pool. My favorite part is the boots.

Second: On a previous post I mentioned Eli helping Eric with some new shelves/cabinets. Here are a couple more work-in-progress shots that I think are cute...

Third: The finished product! I love them. Sorry for the terrible flash photography. They're a kind of grayish-purpleish color, not that you can tell from this picture! :) I love them!

Fourth: We made our first attempt at a sleepover with Timothy last week. They did pretty good, although Tim didn't ever fall asleep. :) Fortunately, his parents don't live too far away! :) We look forward to trying again soon!

Fifth: Eric got his first watermelon this week from his garden! We've had peppers, tomatoes, and herbs abundant, but this is the first melon. He was proud! :)

And now for the sleepover portion of this lengthy post...

We had Cooper over to spend the night for the first time this week. Jacey was in Maine this week with my parents, and I really wanted to do something special for Cooper. Plus, both boys have been asking about this for a while now- they're at that age, and I think it's adorable!

They played for such a long time together. I love listening to what they come up with. The theme of this night was that a lion was coming to get them. They played this game forever, stopping only to eat pizza and brownies for dinner. :)

It was super cute to tuck them into their matching sleeping bags for the night. Although Cooper ended up in Eli's sleeping bag and Eli ended up in his bed by morning. :)

We ate pancakes for breakfast (after they woke up an hour earlier than usual with boundless energy!)...

And then I took them to see the Winne the Pooh movie, which was adorable. Kelly and the boys came, too.

And we topped it all off with chicken nuggets and naps. :)

A good time was had by all!
