While the nail painting was happening on the porch, THIS was happening in the yard. Bran (and me) versus Daddy! This was really fun, and really good exercise. And probably kinda dangerous, when you get right down to it. Just whacking each other with whatever weapon was on hand. And frisbees. And dart guns. Well, the darts.
Then the little girls joined in. Isn't Z just the sweetest daddy ever? Look at him, hurtling towards his innocent little toddler... mace extended... battle cry almost echoing off the screen...
We took GB to the park. We had lovely weather (end Sept./beginning Oct.)! Weather I'm kinda missing about now. Almost ALL the leaves are off our trees! Yep. I bet you're shocked to hear that, since it's only the middle of November... haha.
Maeve found a little friend there. Isn't he a cutie? Yep.We went to Pancharevo, the nearby hot springs pool, twice. Well, I only went with them once, the second time GB wrangled all three of them while I drove ALONE to pick Z up from work. The car was really, really quiet. N&B had been working on their swimming skills during the summer, and had been able to ditch the life jackets in the deep (for them) end and doggie paddle/flounder around pretty darn well. Grandma helped them fine tune some skills. They had so much fun! Maeve toodled around in her little life jacket, too. She also had fun, and was also cute.
We took a little walk up our mountain. And, look! Shorts and sandals! (Can you tell I'm pining just a tad for that lovely weather? I like fall, but now it's getting coooolllld...)
Bran, itty bitty on the left, and Nuala, not so itty bitty on the right, climbing up a very rocky (more like "boulder-y") stream. Bran is NOT peeing, though it kinda looks like it.
