What a cute boy...

Ben is looking so old and so adorable!! I can't decide which one I like best...

On a hot day, Kate and Ben took a dip in the pool.

Ben at the fountain

Ben enjoyed showing Grandma one of his favorite spots. Hours of entertainment can be spent watching this fountain at the mall.

Peek-a-boo with the fountain.....that's normal, right?

The fountain stopped for a moment.....Ben says "All done!?"


We went out to lunch and Ben was SOOO good!

Bubble time with Grandma

Ben loving Grandpa on the phone

Grandpa was on the phone before bed tonight and Ben was all about kissing the phone. Guess you're going to have to come back and visit, Grandpa!

He was so cute....or was he trying to postpone bedtime?

Ben meets ELMO!

Ben attended a neighbor's birthday party today that had an Elmo theme. The party included once of Ben's favorite activities......a water table!

Check out his Elmo hat!

Kate showed up and splashed around a bit with Ben.

And showed everyone how darn cute she is!

Oh my....look who's walking up our street!!???!!

Ben was not scared at all. He has no idea who Elmo is, but was very excited...

to give him a bum pat.

"What the heck is this big furry thing?!"

Ben spots Daddy coming home from work.

The cutest boy in the world posing with his new friend.

Reading with Grandpa

A Sunday at home

Let's hear it for the Monkey!

Now that Ben can walk, he's very good at managing the wagon.....he runs with it and has no trouble turning and going backwards.

On Sunday, Ben also impressed us with his stacking abilities. He seems to learn something new every day.

6 blocks!

Nick's parents are in town to visit Kara and Carl so we went downtown to have dinner with them tonight. It's always fun to get Ben and Carl V together.
