We decided to take a test walk up the street and back. Anna would not wear one. She sometimes acts weird with really fuzzy items and I think she was a little intimidated with the thought of having an animal on her back. She held my hand for the walk.
We found time for some backyard play after the walk. The girls were fascinated with a caterpillar they found underneath the water table. I didn't have the Speedlight attached to the camera so most of these pictures came out dark. Here's a cute one of Allie.
The girls had their very first ice cream cones yesterday as well. They didn't quite understand the concept of eating the cone until I started taking bites for them. It was very messy but they have to learn and enjoy being a toddler.
Here's Em wiping Anna's face for her.
Em. Rich had just wiped her down so she looks fairly clean here. He was taking the clean up as we go approach.
I had to laugh tonight as I drove to the cemetery to water Abigail's flowers. There was a youngish couple with one toddler (maybe three years old.) They crossed the street and as I drove by, I noticed that the little girl was eating an ice cream cone. It was the laugh of someone on the edge of insanity. I wonder what their world is like. One toddler, two adults. I can't even imagine.
