No New Pictures?

I know what you're thinking..."why hasn't Emmett posted any new pictures yet? I just can't go another day without seeing those adoreable cheeks and chubby yet muscular legs". Well, we don't have a camera anymore and you can blame Mom...or Dad, depending on how you look at it. I'll explain.

Last weekend we went on a hike to Rainbow Lakes. It was really pretty there..I even saw my first moose! It was a Mommy Moose with a little baby. It reminded me of my Mommy and me (except they were eating leaves and were really hairy). ANYWAY, back to the camera incident. We were hiking along and Daddy was carrying me in my backpack. It was pretty rough terrain, on top of big boulders and through some creeks. Daddy pushed a branch back to make his way through and it popped back and hit me in the lip. I cried a little, just a few seconds, to let them know that I was not happy about the situation. When Daddy stopped so that Mommy could check me out, Mommy started yelling "He's bleeding, he's bleeding!" Daddy couldn't see me so he started freaking out, afraid that he had poked my eye out. I didn't really know what all the fuss was about, but whatever...anyway, to make a long story short(er), Mom dropped everything, including her camera into the lake. She got it out but it won't work anymore. Daddy is convinced that she did it on purpose because she always complains about how much she hates her camera. Mommy said she didn't do it on purpose, but if she would have thought of it, she would have. So, we're now shopping for a new camera. In the meantime, here's an old picture, just in case you're missing my face!

Love you all...Big E

Happy Anniversary, Grandma and Grandpa!

Last weekend we were in Illinois celebrating Grandma and Grandpa Neuhaus' 50th anniversary. I don't know how long that is, but everyone said it was a LONG time to be married. We had a party for them and took lots of pictures. Even though it was Grandma and Grandpa's day, for some reason, I ended up in almost all of the pictures. I guess that's what you get for being so cute. Take a look at the big party!

Hangin' out at the Zoo

I have become quite a fan of zoos. I went to the Denver Zoo last month and just today, we went to the St. Louis Zoo. I even noticed a couple of the animals this time. My favorite were the penguins, because they kept splashing me with water, and it was funny!

Just me and the guys--I'm the only one sleeping though.

Why didn't anyone tell me about icing?

For Avary's birthday, they had this wonderful food called "birthday cake". Mommy wasn't going to give me any, but Grandma Donna let me try the icing, and it was yummy. I can't wait until I have a birthday!

Libby Lu who?

It was my cousin Avary's birthday, so Grandma took her to a store called Libby Lu's. I have a cousin named Libby so I thought that was funny. We all piled in the cars and went there so that Avary could be made up to look like Hannah Montana (whoever that is). It was really funny and we all had a good time watching her get all fixed up. Daddy told them they'd better stay away from me with all that makeup, and I agreed.

Avary...or is it Hannah?

I want to get all pretty too!

Playing with my Cousins

Well, after a LONG 15 hour car ride, we made it all the way to Illinois! We're back home visiting our family, and I'm having a really good time playing with my cousins. They're a little bigger than me, but I'm keeping up with them!
