Just a few pictures

Here are some pictures of the girls that were taken Saturday. We had church on the mountain, and this was taken driving through one of the tunnels on the way up. They get so excited about the tunnels!

And this was taken after the church service.

After we got home the girls went outside and made some mud pies. They are really starting to play well together, though the volume does get pretty loud sometimes.

Little Singer

Just like Claire, Mia loves to sing. Here's a little clip of her singing a song she learned at school. I believe the words are "Give a friend a hug, give a hug next to you..."

The Fair

Our fair was in town last week, and we took the girls on the first Sunday. What a beautiful day it was!

This was the view from the Ferris wheel.

The rides took SO many tickets --- here was a $6 trip down the slide.

Mia was not tall enough to ride most of the bigger rides. Here she was watching Claire get ready to do the bumper cars. She was so disappointed that she couldn't go, too.

Taking a little ice cream break.

I wanted to see what had been entered in the knitting category, so we stepped inside the exhibit building for a few minutes. It was hot, and Claire and Mia were immediately bored stiff. I don't know why, but there was this grocery store horse sitting there, and the girls were fighting over who got to sit on it. They were also mad at me for not putting some money into it.

I love the expression on Mia's face on this little mini-roller coaster ride.

Mia was a bit hesitant to get on a pony, but then changed her mind and decided to ride the littlest one. It was so cute!

The ponies had glitter on their manes, and that made it more fun.

Random Photos

Here are some photos from the last few days...

The girls made their bed into a little fort.

They like for me to take their picture in mid-air (or try to, anyway).

Acting goofy. Mia's eyes are so big, when she rolls them up it's really gross.

EEK! A monster!

Much better!

Nut gatherers

Today we had some rip-roaring family fun --- the oaks in our yard are having a big acorn year, so we took some bags out to see who could gather the most. In the end we had bagged up 56 pounds of them!
