Last week on a sunny afternoon all four of us were playing in the back yard. I had Charlie in her excersaucer to keep her from putting grass, sticks, rocks, and whatever else she can find in her mouth. Dada decides he wanted her to crawl around and enjoy the weather. She noticed pretty quickly the back steps were quite close, and in about 5 seconds flat made it over there and crawled all the way up - she is only 10 months old!!! Dada got her and put her back on the grass but after she made it up the stairs two more times, he put her back in the excersaucer. ;)

Last week Dada found an old pair of holiday antlers in Max's toy bin and put them on Charlie's head.

I have been emotionally preparing myself for Max starting preschool in September and found a great one near our house. This summer they also offer summer school in 3 week sessions to help keep kids busy. With us being tied to the house in the mornings for Charlie's nap, poor Max has been very bored so we decided to try out the summer school for him. He loves it! When we first walked in yesterday morning he went straight for the playdough.
Then, as soon as the painting easel was free, he started on his first masterpiece. He wouldn't even say goodbye to me!
We had some weather warm enough to put Charlie down in the grass to see what she would do. She immediately started looking at the tall blades of grass sticking up in front of her (we have been working inside the house and the yard is badly in need of mowing!)

Last week we had a few really nice sunny days (of course, this week is the Rose Festival, so we are back to rain) which meant that Max got to go outside and play on the dirt pile. Dada got him doped up with sunscreen... and likes to mess with Max's hair during the application. Max is playing the king of the hill and looked so cute I had to capture the image!
A few weeks ago Dada began putting up a new fence along the far end of our back yard along with the help of our neighbor (it's his new fence too). Here are some 'in process' pictures. Above, the new posts are in.
Max and the two neighbor boys are enjoying the dirt pile created by the planting of the new trees. Boys like dirt!
