Eli had a very busy weekend traveling to Denison, Sherman, Fort Worth and then finally back home. I taught her how to sign ‘home’ a couple of weeks ago and I have been surprised by how often she has signed it. She signed it at Grandmother Jo’s house and then on the way to Fort Worth! Poor girl, she got homesick!
At Granddaddy Keith’s big 90th birthday bash, I spent my time chasing Eli around, protecting her 15 month old cousin from getting swatted at by Eli and trying to protect Eli’s head from the floor as she went in and out of tantrums! God makes babies cute for a reason! Needless to say, this was not the highlight of the trip for me. But Grandmother Jo and I managed to break away and get manicures together! I sense a family tradition in the making…
We got treated to lunch in Fort Worth by Eli’s other Great-Granddaddy, Gene! Joe T’s had good Mexican food and a couple of fountains, so naturally Tata got thrown in for a swim! Where was Water Baby when we needed her?
Here is a shot of the Hull/Cleveland clan, although Julia & Dan’s other 3 kids were missing because they were doing some traveling of their own.
