What we do for fun.....

This is how the Wheeler family celebrates Memorial Day......a pool on a trampoline with warm rainwater in it!! It may look redneck....but it was perfect!

She did not want to get out of the pool.....and who doesn't love a good play-doh in the pool!

We are on the search for a good swim jacket for Eliana.....does anyone have any suggestions? This jacket is supposed to be fitted. Her little 20 pound body doesn't fit in most things!!

I already commented on my Facebook.....but this is the lead singer of Fundamental Elements (and one of our friends through adoption)! Chris and I went to hear them on Wednesday night....and were BLOWN AWAY!! You can check them out at (Katie, we have cute husbands!)

Thanks Paige for keeping Eliana while we went to hear FE!!! Eliana was so cute cuddling with you on the couch.

Eliana is now trying to feed most of her stuffed animals and babies....she rocks them non-stop too. Please note that she is feeding her stuffed cat Polly's water (our dog).

And she's off......this girl can RUN!!! She is seriously so fast. If I let her down.....she is a mile in front of me in two seconds. We think she is going to be a cross country runner!!

Thanks for praying for me.....please keep it up!! Just know I appreciate it more than you know. God has promised to bring me through this.....and I am clinging to that right now.

Love y'all,

I always really enjoy your updates and pictures. I also love to pray for you, too!

Eliana is just precious! We went on your journey with you as we waited for our little girl from Guatemala! They do a lot of things that are simular-my little gal is 20 months and is 7 lbs heavier than Eliana! Keep holding onto Jesus-we have been praying for you.

I remember those days... they go so fast. The simple pleasure no longer please them, they get too big for it!

She is just so sweet!

What a fun time! I love the idea of elevating her pool to keep animals, bugs and grass out! Chris,
your sense of adventure is so fun!!

Linds, do you wear your running shoes when you take Eliana for a

Thanks for all the great pics!!

I don't have any suggestions for a swim jacket (Sienna is older and has swimming down), but I know how hard it is to find things. I have spent almost two weeks trying to find her some ballet slippers and tap shoes (hard to find in a toddler 4 at 3 years)!! Good luck - she is such a little beauty!!

such a peanut!! The pool and trampoline together look so fun. Oh, she is at that fun age where pretend play starts.

I look at the speed running as exercise!! Praying you get through your hard time
