Enjoying Sunday

Yesterday morning at church we had a huge brunch in honor of our financial pledge drive. Afterwards, Dillon rode on the cart with the speakers to help put things up!

After a 4 hour nap (!), we went to grandma and grandpas where we enjoyed the sunshine! :)

Random Pictures aka The Catch-up Post!

While Dillon is taking a nap, I thought I'd take a few minutes and get some random pictures on the blog! Most of them have Dillon in them, but we'll get to some that don't, also...
A few weeks ago, Chris and I decided to take Dillon to two parks. He had a lot of fun!
Dillon is swinging back and forth. He's not big enough to fill the entire seat, and so he sits forward. :)

I'm watching my boys have fun!

Chris and Dillon on top of the slide....

....and I got my turn with Dillon next. He didn't like the end of the ride either time. I think it scared him too much... but he did have fun going down.

At the second park, they had a small jungle gym we could let Dillon climb. He had fun with that!

We've also gotten to see "aunt" Karen's new house that she and her husband are building. Karen is my aunt Debbie's sister.

Grandpa and Dillon admiring the view from the living room. The house sits on a hill, and there is a gorgeous view of the city and lake below.
Dillon and "aunt" Vicki. Vicki is also one of Debbie's sisters. Dillon liked Vicki. :)

After seeing the house, we went to dinner. Dillon decided to really like Vicki when she allowed him to play with the straw in her drink. She tried to stop him, but Dillon is a fast learner and remembered how to get the straw out of her drink. We couldn't help but laugh...

Dillon and his first car ride in Kroger with the race car carts. I promise these things are awesome! Dillon really likes the fact that he can actually see where we are going. They are a little hard to "drive," but it's worth it because it makes grocery shopping easier!

We went to Benton while Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Ben were here for a family dinner. Dillon was very fussy (it'd been a while without a nap), and so Chris's aunt Cara took him outside to hang out and sit. Dillon loves the outside, and so this was perfect for him! (And Mommy and Daddy didn't have to worry about him!)

Around a month ago, Chris and I were able to go to the first Razorback game in Fayetteville. Mom and Dad had a wedding to attend, and so Chris's parents kept Dillon and Chris, Andrew, Ashley and myself used our four tickets. Ashley's friend, Brett, also rode up there with us and got to sit with us after half-time.

Andrew before tailgating. Our meal was sandwiches. Yummy!

Digging into the food. (Chris has developed a habit my father is extremely good at - catching pictures of people while they eat!)

The big A!

Chris and myself during the game.

The team celebrating we won...

On the way up thee... I had to pay attention to traffic!

Chris took this of himself...

Her friend, Brett, talking on his phone about either the Cowboys or Florida. People called him all morning to talk about football!

The weather during the game. We had a great time, and we were glad that our friends got to go with us!

some old video

Daddy finally got all his stuff working, so here's some old video.

He'll try to get some video of me walking to put on here.

So much happening... so little time to post!

I cannot believe it has been a month and three days since the last post!  So much has happened, and we have a lot of pictures on Chris's camera that need downloading...

Here's the reader's digest version...

Dillon has had a good month.  :)  He began taking a few steps a little under a month ago, and we now officially have a walker as of last week!  I am going to say his official day of walking was last Sunday, because that's when I witnessed him walk long enough to become convinced in my mind.  It is a mind over matter concept for him, and he's not running or walking tremendously fast yet, but he's walking.

He's also been a little sick, but he's all better now.  Actually, Dillon was sick two weeks ago and I was sick for a few days last week!  But, we're all better now.  Grandpa Wright stayed with Dillon a few days when he was sick, but he's been going to daycare and continuing to do well in Infant II.

Like I said, we have a lot of pictures to post when we get the time... for now, I am going to think about getting ready for bed... and pray that Ike isn't too bad here...
