These trucks are great. They can go everywhere. We were at one of our favorite pools last weekend and spent most of the time with our trucks.
Check it out . . . below water . . . above water.
Daddy showed us how to roll them along the deck and into the pool.
We chased them . . . LOOK OUT JAX! . . .
. . . and brought them back to Daddy. Fun for hours, or perhaps more minutes than usual.
We had all these great things planned today. We were gonna go to the beach.
We were then gonna go swimming in our pool in the backyard.
It rained some more.
When it finally stopped, we had just a little time to get wet before dinner.
Even that was cut short when SOMEONE "took care of business" on the inside of their diaper-less swim suit.
So this is actually outside the library, but part of the library nonetheless.
Our good friends Shivani and Shashank came with us. There is this great flower-lined trail that goes past the library.
We had a snack out there . . .
. . . we ran around out there . . .
. . . and we all climbed the stairs when we were done. SEE - the library.
. . . Drivin' all the way to the library in my car!
Before we went, Mommy and Daddy switched the car seats from the big car to the little car to see how it would work. You can imagine how much we helped.
C'mon people! Let's get this show on the road!

So Mommy walked us all the way to the Y today. On the way home, we passed the local indoor ice rink. They have two huge piles of rocks, that we're guessing are for some resurfacing of the road.
ANYWAY! We saw the "big truck" drive by, and pull into the lot... by the time we got up there, the driver was in the "digger" lifting loads of rocks into the "big truck," and dumping them in. We got to see it maybe 4-5 times, and we were just astounded.
Then, when the truck was full, she dumped half of a "bucket-full" onto the rock pile.
The driver was a woman (which is important, apparently, maybe we'll find out why when we're older), and she waved to us as she drove by when she left.
It was awesome.
Mommy and Daddy finally got some more furniture for the living room - you can see the leather love seat in the background. One of the pieces, a chaise, came in this giant box. Imagine what you could do with it.
This is a chaise. Mommy and Daddy are brave buying it in white.
The butterflies were really active today at the zoo, flying all over the place. Very cool.
We watched Sparky the Sea Lion swim all over his pool too. He kept swimming right past us and sticking his head above the water to stare at us. He was being silly.
So this is what a spoon ("boon-uh") is for. Interesting. We always used them for the following:
Dragging on the wall or floor.
Hitting chairs or the floor (definitely not our brother).
Carrying all over the house.
Putting in things.
The list goes on an on.
Apparently, they're for eating. Pretty cool , huh?
We visited Grandma and Grandpa C as part of the going away gathering. We had all kinds of fun with the hose in the backyard (Daddy did not spray us, despite how the photo looks).
We also tossed these really weird ball things up and down the stairs.
Now that the kitchen is open (oh yeah, Mommy and Daddy opened the kitchen for good, maybe) we got to help Mommy make biscuits for breakfast this morning. We helped her put the butter in the bowl (she did not cut off Charley's finger) . . .
. . . then we helped her eat the butter. She's so nice.
We helped her stir all the ingredients together . . .
. . . and we checked the results. They weren't too bad raw, but they were better cooked.
Great Aunt Carrie (Mommy too), took us to the zoo a couple days ago. We saw all kinds of great things, including a swimming tiger (not quite as great as the swimming giraffe).
When they let us out of our strollers, we pushed them all over the zoo. People got out of OUR way.
The butterflies were really active too. They were flying all over the place in their little tent-thing.
