So the weather is rapidly getting colder. We are knee deep into fall up here which includes high temperatures around 50 degrees and lows in the 30s. So that means a little more preparation has to go into our afternoon walks. Here's one of the outfits Lisa put together for our afternoon stroll.
Another big accomplishment lately is their ever-expanding vocabulary. Well, not so much words but sign language. Lisa has been keeping track of how many words they know...it's currently at 17. This is the sign for moose. She's holding a picture of a moose in her right hand and showing us at the same time.
Another new favorite trick...opening the cabinet doors and pulling all the pots and pans out. This went on for several weeks until we finally had to put locks on these doors too. This was supposed to be the one cabinet that we left open but it got to be too much of a hassle. They wanted to be in there nonstop and we couldn't store breakable stuff. We still open it up every now and then for them of course.
This was a funny story. Out of nowhere, Alyssa wanted to get in the basket with all the books. She worked very hard to get all the books out so she could climb in there and sit. Actually...she got in there and started pushing. It was too funny. She sat there with a book and grunted. The picture is Lisa demonstrating the sign for book.
Alaska State Fair. We went with a few of our friends to the Alaska State Fair the last week in August. The weather was pretty good and we all had a good time. The players:
Alyssa and Katy Sam
Cindy (Sam's better half)
Everyone enjoying funnel cake. MMMMMmmm, state fair funnel cake.
Sam petting the goat.....
...then smelling his fingers.
Back to the car to stretch our legs before the hour drive home.
We get into our pjs and what do we want to do?...POTS AND PANS!!!!
