Eli's big weekend and my new favorite show



Eli freakin traveled like a rock star this weekend: He got to ride to Utah in the plush bus house-eating chips, roaming around, watching movies, napping on the king size bed and generally driving everyone crazy for 9 hours; and then he got to ride home in his Grandpa's homebuilt airplane, which is also not too shabby...please notice the big bold word printed on the doorway of the aircraft; I was only racked by tormenting thoughts of being a widow and single parent to one child for like an hour.






Also, has anyone else fallen in love with this show? It's called Pawn Stars and I am obsessed. It's about these guys who own a pawn shop in Las Vegas and any lover of history will get sucked right in; people stumble upon these treasures and bring them in and it is so fascinating--AND there is a guy named CHUMLEE-that's right, Chumlee! Trust me, he is as much of a character as his name would indicate. So I don't care if you think I am a loser, I love this show.

I know right?! I did too! Adam was at the lab until 3am again and we both love it but I couldn't help watching like 3 episodes without him. I knew you would like it.

I told Eli he was going to fly on grandpa's plane, and he got the sad face he has in picture number two- tears down the cheeks and all. Needless to say I quickly changed the subject. Oh yeah, and he loves dancing to the song "Body Language" by Jesse McCartney? We had it on in the car and just kept replaying it because his dance moves were so impressive.

So funny, we started watching that show over the weekend! Joe was more fascinated by it than me, but it was still cool. Funny what you end up watching when you're stuck nursing on the couch.
