Hanging Out

I wanted to get a picture of Amelie and Sam sitting on her Elmo couch (which was a present from Great-Grandma Doris -- thank you, Grandma!). Amelie sits on it every day and looks at books or just hangs out.

As soon as I pulled out the camera, though, she had to come investigate.

Splash Pad

Running through the sprinkler inspired a visit to the splash pad at Flat Branch park.

Dada was elected to supervise, though here it looks like he's convincing her this is a good idea.

In reality, baby needed no convincing at all. She dove right in.

Dada did get a little wetter than we'd anticipated.

Amelie kept running back to the fountain that wasn't quite working. It gave a baby-sized splah.

This is fun!

I did make a video, but it's giving me a hard time uploading. I'll update the post later when it works.

Yard Work

Our yard has turned the depressing tan shade of dead grass in the recent heat wave. To combat the problem, Sam and Amelie set up some automatic sprinklers for the front yard.

Believe it or not, it was nearly 6pm when I took these photos, and that's why the baby doesn't have on a hat, though from the looks of the bright sun in these pictures, maybe she should have.

There was a bit of running through the sprinkler afterward :)
