Roller boogie

I tried rollerskating tonight, which turned out to be more difficult than it appeared. So much so that Dad split his pants while trying to keep me from falling down.

Technology girl

Hmmmm. I wonder what this button on the iPad does?

Brush or scrub?

Sometimes I'm VERY enthusiastic about brushing.

Water, water, water

I'm hitting the local pool circuit pretty hard this weekend.

Playing catch

What's not to like about getting tossed and caught by Dad while playing in the swimming pool?

Reaching new heights

Lexi and I hadn't gotten to play together in over three weeks on account of her being on a European vacation. So we decided running wild on the brand new playground at Riverside Elementary sounded about right.

One book more

It never fails: as soon as I finish reading all of the books I've picked out before bedtime, there's always just one more book that I've got to read.

Twas the Night Before Preschool

Nothing like reading about Pete the Cat and his rockin' red school shoes to get me in the mood for preschool tomorrow.

Party room antics

Julian and I thought it'd be funny to bury his dad, Cary, under the confetti in my party room. It took alot of confetti!

Pajama party at the Zoo

 Got to wear my pajamas and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Zoo, which included watching the zookeeper feed the anteater baby food.

Last order of business

Getting my hair brushed is usually the last thing that happens before leaving for school in the morning. This sometimes involves a brush getting tossed down the stairs from the bathroom.

A "little" help

I "helped" Neesy "clean" Lexi's room tonight before she gets back from Europe. Mostly, I made sure ALL of the Barbies were in proper working condition.

Dough ball!

Il Vicino is one of my favorite places to eat. They hand me a big wad of pizza dough to play with when I walk in the door. I make sculptures with it. I wear it. I eat it. I love dough.

Zany Zeke

The Duffins have a dynamite Boston Terrier. If I could've snuck him into my suitcase and brought him to Wichita without Mommy noticing, I would've.

Hooray for Hickerts

What's halfway between New York and California? Kansas City, which is where I got to hang out with cousins Emilee and Carrie.

New narrator

When it comes to bedtime stories, Kira's version of "Going on a Bear Hunt," a book she gave to me when I was first born, just can't be beat.

Getting the message

Dad handed me this set of Billy Bob teeth, took my picture and said "this is what your teeth will look like if you don't brush everyday." Message received. Loud and clear.

Playing in the puddles

I love splashing around in the rain.

Hey, batter, batter, batter

Took Sunday morning to show off my mad batting skills to Aunt Laura and Uncle Heath.

Pasta monster

I think I love pasta more than the Cookie Monster loves cookies.
