Shark Tank

Have you seen this episode?
Evangeline didn't like the noise of the bike but liked the smoothie

Evangeline's first trip to Ikea was a success. I think she had more fun shopping than at any kids play place she's ever been.

Beach Babies

Lincoln and Evangeline enjoying a sunny day at a friend's pond. Someone stop these kids from growing up so fast.

Pant less

Diaper changing has become our biggest challenge in the Erickson household. So, we decided to see if Evangeline had any interest in a toilet. The verdict is still out but our nudist loved being pant less and naked all day.

No More Diapers

Toilet (potty) training test 1. 


The whole family took a trip to the airport this morning to participate in interviews for the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES). No more long TSA checks or customs lines for us! 
Evangeline passed her background check.

Ice Cream You Scream

If you remember we tried to give Evangeline ice cream on her first birthday. It didn't go over well. She wasn't prepared for coldness. 6 months later. We tried again. 

It went over very well this time. So well, in fact, she was having trouble waiting her turn for a bite.

Evangeline loves drinking out of open cups. 

Especially if it has ice in it.

Best Time of Her Life

I really think visiting Maui has been the best time of Evangeline's life so far. She hardly complained about anything, except having to put sunscreen on (but that was remedied with a little Dinosaur Train). 

She enjoyed spending most of the time in the sand and running from waves. 

Then we would enjoy a delicious dinner and do it all over again the next day. 

Not a bad way to spend a few work days. 

I know it probably doesn't look like it or sound like it but I did have to do some work while here. Well, just a little...

Water Baby

Evangeline is fearless (for better or for worse) when it comes to the waves. Suit or no suit she is ready to catch some waves.

Evangeline has been enthralled with all the new birds to see in Maui. 

Stay At Home Dad

Things can be challenging as a stay at home Dad, but at the end of the day, it really is all that it's cracked up to be.

And Let Us Pray

Evangeline frequently asks us to stop throughout the day to pray.
