Sisters at play

The girls spent the yesterday afternoon playing dress up and pushing each other around in doll strollers. I love that now that Clarissa is older she and Lila actually play together. It is so fun to watch!

A beautiful day for the farm!

Clarissa is really enjoying all the animals at the farm now. It's so cute!

Lila loves the tree houses best.

We joined friends Alani (here with Rissa), Airi and Timbra for a picnic and fun at the farm.

Alani and Lila check out one of the rabbits.

Clarissa wasn't quite sure what to make of this donkey.

Still staring down that donkey!

Nap time. Perfect time to let big sister run off some of that energy!

Did I mention that Lila is a bit sassy?

Lila discovered that throwing leaves in the running water is fun!

Lila the bunny

Lila and Luna are best friends. They spend most of their time together. You'd think Luna would want to get away, but he just keeps coming back for more.

My amazing high jumping bunny!

more photos!

I have been playing with my new camera non-stop...

My new camera!

I did it. I got a new camera. A nice one. It's an olympus E-520 DSLR. I am so excited. Had to try it out at soccer today. I am only just starting to learn all the amazing things this camera can do, but even with what I know it takes a stellar photo!

Well, it's official...

I am now mother to a teenager! This seems totally amazing, but at the same time I don't feel too overwhelmed by it. I suppose the fact that for the past year Kurtis reminds me on a very regular basis that he is "almost a teenager, Mom" has helped prepare me for today! I could not be more proud of him and what a wonderful person he is! He is holding on to a steady A in all his classes so far this year and is as sweet as ever! I will hope this sets the pace for the rest of his teen years, but I won't hold my breath...
Happy 13th Birthday Kurtis!

The Living Planet Aquarium

We are frequent guests at the aquarium here in town. It is so much fun to see Clarissa enjoying it as much as the rest of the gang! Here Lila and Clarissa play with puzzles and aquatic dominoes. A fun time was had by all!
