Flower Time

Oh boy did they love the fountain!


He looks like he's in a time out,
but he's not! ...yet

To Gran, Love Evie

Eve had to take pics, I liked this one of Dirk.
The rest she took for Gran,
because she knows Gran likes giraffes.
This is "Raffie" - Victor's Giraffe
from Uncle Britt and Auntie Christine

An attachment to our vacuum fell on the floor, so I put it back on it. Eve saw me do this, and the following conversation followed...

E - Mom, what would happen if you vacuumed off all my hair?

M - I don't know, Eve. What would you turn into?

(We tease her that if I shave her hair off, she'd turn into a boy, so I figured that would be her answer)

E - (...thinking...) PAPA!

Ryan saw Eve digging thru the toy box tonight...

R - What are you looking for, Eve?

E - Money.

R - Why are you looking for money?

E - So I can send it to Gran.

R - Why do you want to send it to Gran?

E - So she can buy me more stuff!


Dirk chimes in...

D - I have a dollar, do you want my dollar?

E - Yes!

D - Too bad I'm not going to give it to you.

Such a nice big brother.

"Dee" and "Boppa"

Mom and Dad came down for a "Kid Fix" yesterday. We went to their favorite park, right next to church. They had a lot of fun! Today, Victor walked around looking, and calling for "Dee" and "Boppa". He wasn't scared of them at all this time! He finally remembers who they are :o)
Who was having more fun, the kids? or Papa?

I can't begin to say how much Victor loves being outside.
He loves to try and catch birds - he sneaks up VERY well on them!
Or bark at dogs as they are walked by.

What I wouldn't do in order to have a set like this in a big back yard for this boy.

This is the "M" as Eve calls it.

She's climbing up the right hump of the "M".

I stopped watching them as they do this.

I don't want to see them fall. And I know I can't stop them from climbing!

Victor loves the slide.

He goes down backwards, on his belly.

With HUGE smiles :o)

Hi Ho Hi Ho It's Off to the Park We Go

This is the best I could do.
I took numerous pics trying to catch Dirk
jumping off the swing in mid-air.
He just doesn't swing high enough yet
to get good "air time" :o)
She may be a princess,
but she loves to dig in the dirt!

Dirk loves to slide on this

Last summer he had a hard time
figuring out how to pump to get swinging.
This summer - no problem!

This little guy does NOT like to swing.
I try every time we're at the park,
with the same result :o(

Milestone for Victor

Ryan called me at work yesterday to tell me that he put Victor down for a nap in his crib. A few moments later, he noticed Victor in the hallway. Yes, our 17-month-old can climb out of his crib already. Lovely.
