i swear the high on saturday was somewhere in the 80's. it was hot enough we were sweating in swimsuits out on the driveway while we washed the car. both babes started to burn, so we were sticky from sunscreen. flushed cheeks and sunglasses strewn about made me excited and nervous all at the same time!
jude will play at the water table for ages, and elle can dig in our dirt-y yard for at least that long. so that's what we did. nothing, really. which is pretty rare for us.
^^ i don't trust that face in the back:)
i don't even want to know what jude consumed that afternoon. i was pulling debris out of his mouth constantly. i'm sure at least a sponge-full of dirty bubbles and 1/4 cup of baking soda went down, in addition to a few small rocks. this kid.
bubbles were busted out. bubbles are any kid's idea of a good time, methinks.
^^ outside, jude prefers this method of mobility. less painful than crawling, and less intimidating than walking.
^^ elle surfed.
see, there are those bubbles i talked about. filled with dirt. BLEGH!
i quickly offered him a(nother) banana.
i'm sure if there was an award for banana eating, he would win. even if it was him vs. monkeys. he downs bananas in 3-4 bites. max.
i'm telling you- the banana eating plus that strange crawl? maybe he was meant to be some sort of gorilla?
afterwards, we picnic'd on the back porch and watched the "sketchy guys" install more concrete and "landscaping" for us and our neighbors. we ate plate-fulls of produce, and some fritos, because, well, fritos are amazing. and what's a picnic without fritos? we learned jude can eat an entire lemon without flenching, but he hates watermelon. WATERMELON?! the first food he's ever actually hated consistently! go figure.
i can't believe she's grown so much since she wandered around here last year.
and jude!? they're like different people!
