Aeries Tunes Up for Carnegie Hall

Last weekend Aeries showed great promise at the piano and we were all thrilled. She obviously has what it takes to become a great concert pianist.

Our friend Reid found a pedal-car destined for the landfill at a job site a few weeks ago and was kind enough to pass it along to us. It has a few missing pieces but it pedals easily and is very clean. We're going to track down 4 fender lights, 1 hubcap, a better windscreen, and repaint the body. Aeries isn't quite ready for this yet but she will be soon!

This weekend she was here and she was good as gold. We just have so much fun with her. She's crawling now, and it was so cute to watch her follow Grandma around the house from room to room. This weekend she was definitely Grandma's girl.

She hung out with cousin Conner on Saturday for a while over at Great-Grandpa and Grandma's house. They played electric football together. Conner is very patient and sweet with Aeries and they clearly really like each other a lot. It's sweet to watch them together. She mostly liked putting her hand on the gameboard and feeling the vibration.

Conner Takes the Boeing Tour

Today on a whim Conner and I went to the 'Future of Flight Museum' and the Boeing Tour. It was fantastic! We learned and saw a lot of cool stuff.

The museum was very educational. The Boeing Company has a very interesting history.

It was interesting to see the inner-workings of a jet engine.

Conner got to design his own airplane. Then after he was done he got to take home a poster of his design.

A lean, mean, flying machine.

We saw the interior of the new 787 Dreamliner. Very plush!

Conner was really interested in watching the flight simulator. There was a group of Boy Scouts waiting to go and so he didn't have a chance to go this time.

We had a really good time. It was a spur-of-the-moment idea and it turned into an especially fun day.

Aeries Takes it Easy

Baby isn't feeling her best today. Kinda sniffly, kinda tired, kinda clingy, a little bit warm. It's noon and she's already on her 2nd nap.
