Boats and Zombies

Rowan is crawling, pulling up, and cruising everywhere... leaving a path of destruction in her wake. Pippa is talking in full sentences and cracking us up w/ her insights. Here are some pictures and videos.... I'm off to paint and unpack some more.

Pippa built a boat for her and Tiger. See the devilish look in Rowan's eye? Three seconds later this boat was destroyed.

Pippa made me take a series of pictures of her being an 'acrobat' in this chair.

I was trying to capture Rowan's 'flock of seagulls' hairstyle, but it was really hard to do it actual justice. This pic shows only a small percentage of how silly it actually looked.

Pippa sings the ABCs (sort of -- she had a fever this day and was pretty dopey, she actually can sing the whole thing properly) and Rowan boogies down.

Mission Accomplished!

Rowan's crawling always reminds me of those old zombie movies, where the zombie's legs have been cut off and it's dragging itself forward with its arms. But cuter.

Only two. But, I'm pretty much caught up and will start taking more photos and videos. For instance, Rowan has learned to crawl, to pull-up, to cruise, and is now taking a stab at walking. Honestly, she kind of did this all at once. Anyway, here are two silly videos while I try to capture all of that on film.

Rowan proving, yet again, that she's not our trained monkey

And Pippa proving that she is

And finally the house and girls

We don't have many pics of the new house yet, or the girls, because the camera has been lost/dead. We'll fix that. But, for now, here are a few...

Pippa isn't potty trained yet, but luckily Peter Rabbit is

Pippa's first day of preschool

Rowan copies Pippa's habit of mugging for the camera

Pirate Festival

My parents live about 2.5 hours east of us and every year their town has a pirate festival.

People REALLY get into this festival -- I felt extremely underdressed (or overdressed... since most of the women came as 'wenches')

Rowan rocking her inner Molly Ringwald pirate

Pippa and Rowan fight over pirate booty

Pippa won

We Miss You

Just a few of the friends we're missing...

Catching Up...

I know. We've got a crazy amount of catching up to do. The short version is, we went to the beach w/ friends, we packed, we didn't have a chance to say goodbye to all the people we wanted to, we moved, we're still unpacking and painting, and everything is fantastic. I'll be posting several blog posts that cover most of this.

Here are beach photos -- we go w/ a group of 12 couples w/ 10 kids. It's awesome.

Rowan catching some rays

Half, yes half, of the kids playing in the sand

Pippa really loves sand

Pippa and Lila were really casual about the alligators

Rowan LOVED fish

Pippa eventually got over her fear of the water
