The Rain

It has been raining for days here in Peoria. When she was younger, Tori liked to play in the rain. This weekend she got to show her baby brother how to do it.

The Birthday That Won't End

Tori is our middle child, and even though she is the only girl, she sometimes feels left out. Not this year. Her birthday celebration is going to start on May 16 with a combo party with her big brother and end on June 17 with swimming and carnival fun. Her grandma Marie is also throwing her a little celebration on June 16 in Kansas City. Then we'll head to Brookfield where she will have a day of swimming and a night at the carnival in Brookfield after a trip to see her great grandmother Grace. She is one lucky little girl, and she knows it!

Bumps and Bruises

In all of the play outside and going in and out, Tori and Eli got some injuries. Tori fell on the bottom step of the deck and got a black eye. She also has some bruises on her legs. Eli fell on the driveway and added some scrapes to his already banged up face from falling on the garage step. His legs look one big bruise. All of that running around and climbing is taking a toll on their little bodies, but you wouldn't know it from the smiles on their faces.
