Everything worked out for us to meet at a local school to play.
|Isn't this an endearing smile? Gideon at 2.|
Gideon LOVES to climb. Today he climbed to his heart's content.
This is a wonderful play structure! What child wouldn't create hours of fun on a fire truck?
A word about Bella....she has been in a "don't take my picture" phase. That's o.k. I've learned, having parented nine children, most phases can be waited out. 😍 She USED to say "No, Bubbie. NO Pictures!" when I tried to take photos of Gideon. She is now happy to have me take Annie and Gideon's photos. She doesn't even mind when I take her photos - but I have to be quick, she has far too much to do to site and pose for Grandma.
Three years old - it hardly seems possible.
I wasn't quite quick enough for the photo I imagined - but I love her smile and the action in this shot.
Today was hot! It got up to 84*. I KNOW that is not CA hot, or TX hot, or Philippines or Liberia hot - but it IS Alaska hot. 🌞🔥🌞 I am loving it. That is - until today on the playground with no shade. I envied Annie in the stroller with shade. LOL
|Annie - 5 months|
Sweet moment - Bella is telling me to come sit with her. I took the photo and then joined them. We live at the foot of the mountains, below the white clouds on the right.
|I LIKE this design better than the old jaw-rattling kind we had when I was kid.|
GG on the Buddy Bench - Is a buddy bench a time out bench? So if you break a rule you get a buddy? Or is it a place to go when you need a buddy to come sit with you a spell? I like that idea....maybe I'll put a buddy bench out here.
"Gemma! It's REAL gold. It's a treasure." She gave it to me. I saved it. It IS a treasure. I'm not sure it's REAL gold. 😉
These big xylophones are FANTASTIC. I want one in my yard....they have a great sound too. I see no way to make my own (or have Michael make one), but I saved the company's name.
Mommy made the best music.
Thank you, Bre for coming out to play with us. I know it's hard to get 3 little ones ready and out the door. We treasure the time we spend with you and your family.
