This morning, we passed by a playground:

Aiden(6): "To be good at monkey bars, you have to have power in your hands."

Now that's good advice!

Talking (sort of), crawling (too fast), walks with assistance, loves to wear her shoes (squeals with joy), drinks out of a sippy cup...

Our "buggie" in a "buggy"

Advice from Chloë: Always know where the camera is

We spent a hot July evening at the Oregon Zoo was Chloë's first time...but I don't think she had as much fun as we did.

These kids never can look at the camera...Aiden holds the pose, but then looks at something else...Chloë just wants to look at's a vicious circle.

Kicking daddy in the face...complete with "Air Jordan" tongue! Nice.

Go Cougs!

Can't you read? The sign says: "Don't Feed the Animals"

Why won't that goat smile?
