Kaden first saw Jim Gill when he was 16 months old and we happened upon him doing a "concert" at a library in Columbus. I bought a CD after the show and Jim even autographed it.
Well, that CD has become a favorite at our house. Kaden loves "Drumming the House" song and laughs along with many others. When we saw he was coming to our library as part of the summer reading program, we were both THRILLED. Kaden began the count down and would often ask each day if it was "Jim Gill Day yet?"
We were NOT disappointed with his performance on Tuesday. He is great with children and makes everyone feel welcome, like they're at a sing-a-long, not a concert. He has a very professional set up, so everyone could hear clearly (Kaden said it was too loud, but, his ears are VERY sensitive). We thoroughly enjoyed the 45 minute show and even got a picture with him after.
Kaden told Jim his favorite song, and Jim said he couldn't do that song without his drummer, but gave Kaden a high-five for "knowing it".
All week Kaden continues to talk about Jim Gill, what he looked like, how much he loves his music, what a good singer he is, and so forth. It's so fun to see him enjoy music and get to meet one of his favorite musicians. I asked if he liked the Wiggles or Jim Gill better and his response was "Jim Gill!"
Another month has quickly passed for sweet Marin. Please tell me she doesn't look a day older than, say, 4 months old???

Kaden watches cartoons while he eats breakfast....a special treat at Gramie's house only!
Siblings that bathe together....stay together (or something like that!)
Kaden and Grandpa Mike race motorcycles.
Happy 4th of July! (thanks Sara for the cute outfit!!!)
Pool time! (Isn't this just the coolest pool? Marin had her own oasis, free from splashing!)
Grandpa and Grandma Steckel sitting quietly with Marin until....
Kaden decides it would be fun to get grandpa wet too! That ornery boy!
Grandma Steckel keeps Marin nice and warm! (hope you can see the gleam in Marin's eyes)
This is my favorite picture of Kaden that day...you can see how thrilled he is with life!
