Guess who said that to whom? ;)
Linnea has been wanting to talk about predators and prey ever since we saw that heron on Tuesday. I supplied the vocab, of course, but she figured out the context.
Watch out, Peter! Haha!
Here are some pics, finally, from Linnea’s birthday… Her actual birthday morning at home before we left for Cannon Beach, and a few with my parents. Most of my pics are on my phone but, well, just getting these up feels like an accomplishment. My mom has a good bunch of pics too that I’ll download.
(the phone ones are actually really cool… a foggy walk on the beach that is my favorite memory from the trip).
(A very long overdue post…)
Rebuilding the deck stairs, attending Kindermusik class, reading books, helping with meal prep and cleanup, finding a certain little girl’s socks and shoes when it was time to go out, making Congo bars, playing at the park (and a picnic), farmers marketing, visiting the Museum of Flight…it was a memorable visit with Uncle Mike and “Mikey, play with me!” was a constant refrain from Linnea. I’m guessing he’ll need a vacation from his vacation. :) We had a great time and I even got the brothers to take a decent picture of themselves (I NEVER remember to get group pics when family is visiting…Alex was even here for dinner last Wednesday night and I forgot to get a picture with her too!). It was fun for me to see boys being boys (you’ll see the ramp they built with blocks for a tennis ball, playing video games, and making certain inappropriate noises with armpits) – I guess when brothers get together some bits of childhood are always relived. :) It was a bummer we couldn’t see Karen, but we wish you guys all the best and will miss you!
