Ethan likes to crawl under the bar stools but then he gets stuck. It's the perfect little baby jail.
It was picture day at school. This year I'm not buying any so this is all you get, sorry. Pictures at school are becoming an expensive waste of money.

This is how Ethan tells me he's hungry. He just climbs on in the high chair himself.
Just tuck in that foot and he's ready for a snack.

After three years in this house I finally got the porch I've always wanted. Hurray for shade.
Ethan likes to take a ride on the mower when Daddy is all done with the lawn. And NO I don't let him ride it when in is running. Give me a little credit here. HA - HA!

Mommy is washing the car and the kids are "helping" Notice that we only have one pair of boots but Joshua was nice enough to share with Ethan. They are each wearing one.

This is what Ethan got for his first birthday. It's a mini bounce castle. He's screaming because he wants everyone out. He doesn't like the big kids in with him, it knocks him down.

Here is a better picture of it. That is Josh laying on the bottom.

Yummy birthay cake and icecream.

We had a small pary with two other families. It was a great day. I wish I already had the porch that day. It was hot and sunny.

We had out the pool, sandbox, and the bouncy castle. It was a super fun day.

All the kids in the sand box.

This was his cake. It is a swimming pool. Heather sent us the idea from a magazine and the kids begged for me to make it. I think it came out pretty good.

The morning of Ethan party I was filling up the pool. He ran outside and jumped in before I could stop him.

Aries Family Reunion JUNE 2007

We discovered that Ethan LOVES watermelon. I'm thankful it is healthy because he ate a ton of it over the weekend.
There are always lots of kittens at Bluewater. This is the one Sarah begged to take home.

All the kids doing the sing-along-songs. Grandpa on the left, Shaun on the right with the hat on.

This is kitty that Josh claimed.

Ethan is always right in the center of all the action.

One of the evenings was a big dinner at Aunt Darlas house. They have a huge porch where Grandpa set up his band equipment. Some of the cousins sang songs. We had a sing along and a slideshow on the big white wall. One slideshow was Great Grandma June life. She just turned 90 that day. They also did a slide show of last years reunion. All the kids got a kick out of seeing themsleves in a "movie." It was a great fun weekend. I just wish I was better at remembering the camera. We did many other great activites that I have no pictures of.
