Today we're celebrating Elijah's 3rd birthday and Fathers Day. We are very thankful for the children God has blessed us with! Happy Birthday Elijah!
The kids spent the evening with my parents Friday while Mark and I went out to celebrate my birthday in peace and quiet! They bought Elijah a cake which he LOVED!
A cake with a track-hoe on it, what's better than that?
Something Elijah has been working on recently is learning to ride a dirt bike. We bought training wheels this spring for Ethan's old bike and Elijah is brave enough to ride it by himself!
We stay pretty close since he isn't the best at braking and sometimes doesn't turn in time and runs into things. But overall for his age he does very well.
Seriously..... is that a burn out in my flowers? It seems Elijah got a little close to my garden and the training wheel went up the rock behind the flowers causing his back wheel to go off the ground. Apparently he just kept giving it gas until Mark helped him out.
Potty training is the other thing he's working on. You're probably wondering why I have a picture of a blue stained kid for a potty training comment. Well since he has been a big pain during this process we are having to be creative. A friend suggested putting food coloring in the toilet water so when they go potty it will change color. Elijah was very excited about this experiment so we tried it. We just need to remember to put away they food coloring so he doesn't take matters into his own hands. :)
