Fun at the Delaware Children's Museum

Seriously, this place never gets old for Poppy and Olive.



There was a Tim George exhibit. How on earth do you do these things on an Etch-A-Sketch? Absolutely amazing. There were at least 20 pictures.

Poppy's First Stick Figure

Poppy drew two pictures of her mother. In the first one she has no legs, and in the second one she looks like a flamingo. Which do you think looks more like Jill?

Terrible Easter Pictures

I took over 100 pictures on Easter, and only 20 are worth posting. Some are just posted because they're so bad. I had to do a lot of cropping, sometimes finding one good face in a sea of many and zooming in almost to the point of blur. But that doesn't mean we didn't have a great time at Grandma and Pop-pop's! There were over 30 people and Pop-pop made slow-roasted orange duck that the kids LOVED! (Maybe it was Peking duck.) Hopefully, I'll have some good videos to post. The kids are actually napping at the moment, so maybe I'll venture on to watching videos.

Olive's Easter basket

Poppy's Easter basket
Notice the Max and Ruby dolls in the middle of each basket. Max and Ruby is the obsession du jour for both of them.

"Olive, can you PLEASE turn around so I can take a picture?"
She downed an eggful of M&Ms shortly after this.

Poppy went right for the ring pops.

Olive and her mommy
Did you notice the hands grabbing Jill's fingers? 

Poppy did not want her picture taken

Nephew Shaefer
If he says "cheese," he smiles crookedly. If he says "monkey," his smile straightens and he pulls his ear.

Nephew Memphis
I don't have a good picture of David, his dad, but they look the same. This counts.

Ready for Warmer Weather

The weather has been unseasonably warm, but I've been thinking about all the sunshine in Florida...

Climbing a giant baobab tree

If you look in the lower right corner, you can see "Poppy and Olive" freshly carved into the tree trunk.

New Year's Eve!

  We love Pop-pop!

Dancing fools

Olive looks like she is falling when she rolls down a hill.

Olive is trying to put up 2 fingers

"I'll push you, Olive!"

Don't look down, Olive!

Art Deco Weekend

I'm eating a delicious arepa.

Bath time

Climbing and eating is so safe.

Poppy getting tired

Poppy went a little crazy with the paint. She looks like she just escaped the asylum.

At the Miami Children's Museum

We're going to miss this view :-(
