Colorado

We are still recovering from our awesome trip to Colorado.  We were there for a full week and had a great time.  I will be posting more about our trip with pictures and videos :)  But as a teaser here is a Wilhite-Miles family picture taken in Vail on Thursday, our last day there.


More soon.

"Soccer"

There are a group of boys that were born around the same time as Matthew.  We thought it would be great to get them together and "play soccer."  Our first "soccer game" was this past Saturday.  While there were actually soccer balls present, they didn't get a lot of use by the kiddos (warning: you will not see any soccer balls in the pictures from the soccer game).

Jackson, Matthew and William.  We had to hold them in place, they just wanted to run and eat :)
And, right back to the food!!
The three of them spent the majority of the time going between the three moms eating the food that we each brought.

It has been fun to watch the boys growing up over the past year.  I can't wait to see what our "soccer games" look like at the end of the summer.  They might even get that soccer balls are meant to be kicked, not thrown.

We did have some success though.  By the time that we left, Matthew had stopped calling it a baseball and was actually starting to call it a soccer ball!



















I love summer with this smiling little man.






We are really into hugs right now. I have NO problem with this phase.

Pretty sure that Jackson just put some more blueberries in his mouth!

Adam getting some love from the boys.

I love this kid!

Cook Out

So in our estimation, when you buy a house, you then buy a grill! And really there is nothing that says summer is here more than having the first cook out of the year.  So, we did it up right!

We had WAY too much food for just three people.*
But we thoroughly enjoyed every bite, and we enjoyed it all again for lunch the next day :)  It seemed like little man enjoyed his first cook out as well!

*Thank you meme and pa for well equipping us for the cook out :)

Grocery Shopping

We normally grocery shop during the weekend, but we didn't get around to it until last night.  It is considerably less crowded during a week night - who knew.  Since there weren't too many people in the store, we thought that we would let him loose.  He was in heaven.  He also slept well last night.


He was extremely helpful!  He LOVED putting things in his cart.  If we ever stopped him from pushing the cart he was very vocal about his want to be moving.  The only time that he would willing stop pushing the cart was when we would ask for help. He would stop pushing and come over to take whatever we had and put it "carefully" into his cart.  Pretty sure that my heart melted a few times.


The only time that he wasn't happily pushing his cart or "helping" us put groceries in it was when he spotted the basket of balls for sale.  Apparently he thought that he should take one home - and no matter where we were, he knew where that basket was and would take off for it if he thought we weren't watching.

Ultimately we all had a great time - Matthew pushing his cart and mom and dad just enjoying his cuteness.  I was little disappointed though when we got to the cash register and he didn't pay.  Oh well, eventually.

Easter (yeah, yeah, I know it's May)

It might be a little late, but I wanted to post our pictures from Easter this year.  We got tickets to go to the White House Easter Egg Roll, so you  know that we had to get pictures.








While standing in line with our closest 10,000 friends, Matthew decided that he should take a nap before we got in so that he would be ready to hit the ground running, which he did.








First order of business was to get an egg tattoo, which he wasn't too sure about.  He was eventually okay with it and kept pointing to it and saying egg.  Since this day, egg has become one of our favorite words and he gets very excited when he sees one.

 We met a very nice bunny...
and some bees, although we got dressed appropriately to meet them.





And of course, since we were at the White House we had to get a family picture to prove that we were there :)







How did you all spend your Easter?

Rocking Out

While waiting for Adam at the metro yesterday, Matthew had the unusual opportunity to be in the front seat (only his second time) while we waited.  He didn't know what to do with himself - so many things to see and get his hands on!

That is, until I turned the radio on.  Then it was all about the dancing.
