The pictures at the park were after we went to the zoo, but I accidently put them on backwards....:0)
We went to the Blank Park Zoo today in Des Moines. Eli was able to feed a giraffe and able to ride on a camel. Eli's favorite thing was riding on the train to see the animals, but he liked walking around the zoo too. Here are some pictures of Eli's first trip to the zoo. After the zoo we stopped at McDonald's to get something to eat, and then we went to teh park.

Fun at the Park


John and I took Eli to the park tonight. Eli loved it and of course threw a fit when it was time to leave. Hope you like the pictures!! He was walking around like he was the biggest kid there, scared Grandpa. Eli loved going down the slides all by himself, even though he fell a couple of times, he was right back up going down again. Eli also liked swinging on the swings, not slow of course, but high. He was laughing his head off.

Some Pictures....

We went to the swimming pool today, but of course I forgot the camera. Here are some pictures of Eli eating and playing, the two things he does best!!

Eating a Maidrite....yummy

Playing on the slide thinking he's cool

Look at that mischievous little smirk

We made it through two airplane rides with Eli!! We had a nice night in Las Vegas, so we didn't have to get up too early for the flight. Eli slept on the 2 1/2 hour plane ride to Minneapolis and then was wide awake for our 30 minute flight to Des Moines. Luckily he was a ham to ladies sitting next to us and kept him entertained.
We are planning to go to the swimming pool tomorrow, if it doesn't rain, so I should have some pictures to put up sometime soon.

After Eli got out of the car....
Our family with the nice guy who came and unlocked the car for free!!  (because there was a baby in the car)
getting it unlocked
not such a happy camper right here
This picture was before Eli realized that he was trapped in the car all by himself

This past weekend we took a family trip up north to Logan.  We spent time visiting with family up there.  The day we left, Eli got locked in the car!  Yes, that's right, a car that supposedly has a child safety feature.  (it's not suppose to lock if the keys are inside)  I was very upset, but my mom took pictures because she said that someday I would want to scrapbook this event in his life.  Both John and I are VERY grateful that we found out this feature doesn't work when we were up in Logan on a day it was cool outside, rather than in St. George.
