Busy Busy couple weeks!

Well we have had a very busy couple of weeks. First, we took Evelynn to her very first Washington Nationals baseball game. We all had so much fun and the weather was awesome!
The next day she pretty much slept like this all day!! I don't think she moved out of this position ever! She was so pooped!
Evelynn is already a pretty big daddy's girl! She loves Preston so much. This was the night before he left us for 10 days to go on a mountain biking trip in Colorado. We have both missed him a whole lot!
While Preston was away on his trip with his brother and dad, his brothers wife and their 1 year old son came out here to visit with me! We did lots of stuff. We went shopping, to the National Zoo, down town to the Natural History Museum and the Air and Space Museum, to the pool and some other little things. It was a good time!
This is Lowe, our nephew, playing wild with Tonka. Tonka loved it.. and so did Lowe! He would always ask for "Tonk". He would be very concerned if we put him outside and wouldn't let him back in soon enough. They were little buddies!
Lowe kept wanting to ride him and would get upset when Tonka wouldn't stand up. Tonka misses Lowe a lot I think!
Lowe loved his cousin so much! He would come over and say "baby" and wanted to play with her really bad. He had a hard time being careful enough but this is his really happy I love my cousin face I think!
Evelynn wasn't quite sure about him. Even if she was fast asleep and heard him anywhere close by her eyes would pop right open and she would start squirming to get away.. lol.. Becky and I got a big kick out of it a couple of times! This is her "are you really letting him be this close to me??" look. Seconds later she was screaming!!
We had such a good time and can't wait till Christmas when we get to see everyone again! By then Evelynn will probably be big enough to handle all 3 of her boy cousins! :) We cant wait to see you guys!

a couple of pictures

Evelynn is 5 weeks old in most of these pictures. In the last one she wasn't even 2 weeks. She is getting so big now and is so much fun to be around.
