A few pics from our vacation: They take their football VERY seriously around here. Very. We were driving around and someone had done this to their backyard fence. The girls have been having a ball throwing rocks in the stream under this covered bridge. They've got wicked strong arms, maybe tee-ball is in their future. Our cousins have these park animals in their backyard and they have gotten a huge workout this week. Plus, we have now proven that the rides are twinproof (thank goodness)—it was proven when Ro tried to rock so hard that the animal's nose would touch the ground. (She didn't succeed, but she did get bucked off pretty hard at one point. Hee.) We drove around visiting relatives and tried not to wreak too much havoc on our way. Cousin A had matching tutu PJs and all three girls could not wait to get into them. I think this picture was taken around 6pm. The cupcakes were a big hit (as expected). Can you tell who's who since they're both dressed in pink? It took the girls about half a minute to learn how to squeal the tires, crank the wheel and reverse, and drive back and forth right down the middle of the driveway. Does anyone have any links to cars like these that are available with two seats? Because the girls are dying to get one of these for their birthdays, and I'm pretty sure daddy will come through. Visiting the covered bridge again (they've thrown so many rocks in that we're afraid the stream is going to dam up). This was NOT planned. Seriously. And what's more, it's not the first time it has happened. These two cousins just kill me. Fun times. We had a big party tonight and got to see even more family, which was awesome. I'll have to download the pics later. Tomorrow is travel day, so keep your fingers crossed for us (and the fellow passengers).
