Cedar Point day! Or what's the point?

Grandma watched Evie and myself today and gave us wild Kratts movies. She played dinosaurs and she builded a fort

Grandma? grandma, grandma! Hee hee

She played serpents with us and we colored and she made us a good lunch but then we asked her what was the lunch and...I don't know.

oh so mommy and daddy took Tio Chris and Juba to some point place and we got grandma all to ourselves... oops gotta go time for something else

1000 miles later

So we rode with Grandma and Juba up to the camp site. I got to help Dad start the fire.
Cousin Aria came to visit (and she brought her little brother Aidric with her) and we chased each other around the campground.
One night of camping later and the park ranger told us to go get something to eat [Dad's Note: we were told to flee a storm with 60mph winds that generated at least one tornado], so we went to Aidric's birthday party.


Because of all the rains, we got to camp in a motel. The next morning saw us go back to Aria & Aidric's for more fun with the cousins.


Way too soon, we were packed back into the car and off to Grandma and Grandpa Lamb's.


Grandma and Grandpa Lamb still have Winnie, but now they have Zippy and Tuffy the yorkies. We got to play with the doggies and run around on the beach.

Five days and 1000 miles since the start, we are finally home. Mommy and Daddy say that school will be starting soon. I'll go to first grade and Evie will start Preschool!

Pose, no this way, imagine your a dinosaur!

So mom needed to get some reference shots of kids running around the woods and just generally hanging out near woods and having a picnic. Most are as movies (and as soon as mom figures out how to load those you might get to check em out.)

In the meantime, here are some just fun shots.

H and me kicking it old school.

The picnic gets going (okay this is mostly a break from photos but hey, it was a really good picnic)

Princess H, just checking out what's going on.

We are all working on posing the dinosaur of our choice.
Me and Carnie scoping out the layout and space.

Just for mommy

Shh, this is mommy taking over for this one post.
After a long night of sketching I woke up to find Sloan had added his own touches to make it even better.

Just like I did, he's drawing knights and dragons and even some pretty awesome dinosaurs.

Loudness is right

So today Evie and me thought we would really liven the day up.
First there was fighting about breakfast. That's right we wouldn't eat anything but Honey Nut Cheerios!

Oh mommy has ham!

Um, right, right up till mommy brought out some ham. but then there were the pancakes. which were okay I guess but they needed more syrup.. and apples.

No appls! Am more am!

So after breakfasts fun, we though we would do a little 1-2 action. First trash the house, then randomly start screaming and yelling no. I know seems like its not much, but we needed to do something. Evie and me thought this would be good for boredom til my friend H got here.

Oh oh! Mommy Henry? Honor?

Oh but why not? How come? NOOOOOOOOOOO
Oh man, no Henry and no Honor cause of the screaming I guess.

Playdate and laundry

Playdate! Playdate! Play- oh Pizza!

I think what Evie is trying to say is that we got to go over to our friends house and play with Reilee and Emerson. It was really cool.
I still don't know about dogs though. I mean Ike and Moshu are both really neat but I just am not too sure about doggies in general.

A really cool sunshade for doing some chalk sidewalk drawings.

Oh and mommy had to do a bunch of laundry... I don't know why thats in the title its just weird.

Kayaking and cooking!

While really I just wanted to stay at home for the day. You know, watch Wild Kratts and eat cheerios, but mommy said we needed to go do something and my friend Genevieve and her mom wanted to go kayaking with us.


Okay so I finally decided we should do was pretty fun.
Evie and I had to make sure mommy got everything we would need so we kept trying to take stuff back out of the car to check. Then we decided it would be best if Genevieve and me played in the backyard for a while.

I napped!

Finally we decided to go. We even got to help pump up the kayaks. though mommy didn't think the names me and Genevieve came up with were all that good.
Here you have me and Evie and Genevieve practicing paddling in Sea Monster Dragonor (okay mommy doesn't like that name but I'm gonna call it that anyway.
So Mommy, Evie and me had the gray kayak and Genevieve and her mom had the other one - Firebolt

Then we went back to our broken house and had a great picnic in the backyard.

On the way home mommy said we needed to shop for dinner and I said I would make dinner! So mommy let me and Evie pick the stuff for dinner.

I picked Donuts, potatoes, cucumber and multiple colored peppers.

Donuts, coocumber, donuts, milk and apples. Oh and I think we should get donuts.

(we didn't get donuts) I think mommy was ignoring our cooking genius!

Here is what I made for dinner: 2 cucumbers take off that dark green outer stuff (mommy got to help with that) and cut in discs -then have mommy cut in half.
Add a little salt
Then a quarter of red, orange and yellow pepper. Cut some into small pieces and some in strips and mix up.
Then make some pasta the twirly rotory stuff (Rotini)
take out the water and put in some butter. sprinkle some cheese and put the pepper/cucumber mix on the pasta and yum!

I make dinner tomorrow! beans and cheese and um...

Rain and our broken house

Camping was really fun except for waking a bit wet. Not cause of any issue, but because it Rained SO hard that the rain flap hit the tent letting water in.

But Evie slept through it and I did too even when mommy moved me from my tent to her tent with Ms. Carol and Evie and Z. Apparently Eli went ahead and slept inside...which is good or where would I have slept?

Oh and we got to go check in on our broken house today.
and evie and I got to play lots with the new floorboards and see what the inside looks like and I am thinking I want a good sciency room... like Wild Kratts have!


There was camping and we were at Z and E's house and we got to camp in their backyard.
But then we got to play lots and there was Smore's and Evie and Ellie got to be in a story about to friends from the land of Nor and ...well okay.

Watermelon! Yeah tents and dinosaurs and Horsey liked playing but there were flyey thingies and um eck ants!

Okay so Evie was not sure about the mosquitos but I told her what mommy told me that there weren't enough mosquitos to carry us off so we would be okay.
Sweatheart!!!!!! Heeeheeheeheeheee Haha!

I should tell you that Sweatheart is our pet Giant Squid and Eli and Evie thought it was the best game to grab him and run to the end of the hallway giggling then run back again. Aw, they were so cute.

Oops sorry!

Its been a crazy couple of months hence the break in blogging - working to get some new stories and photos up!

A snakey kind of day!

S E R P A N T S!
We found a show on snakes and there is a tiger snake, king cobra snake, the horned snake, the lion snake and others. These snakes eat lizards and birds and chicks.

Some snakes eat BATS! and they snatch them out of the air with giant teeth!
I was martin (from the wild kratts) and I changed into a snake where I watched my temperature to be a water hunter.

I a snake! Hisssssss

I played on my bike, it was a snake. And my scooter snake eated mice, rats, bats, birds and other snakes. And I got chased by a T-rex, but they can't eat snakes.

Draw feet! make monsters footprints

Evie means we trace our feet and make them like monster feet.

Oops snakes are back on, time to... CAMOFLOUGE! viper

OH and we had breakfast tacos! (though I made nachos instead)
Taco shell
yogurt with green sprinkles
Apples in cinnamon, then tastiness!

Bath Bath!

For some reason Evie wanted to take a bath in the sink. She's goofey some times
Mommy says we'll be here for a bit since our house is broken.
We also got to go play with my friend Henry and Evie's friend Honor. Here is Henry and mines lego guys.

Memorial Day to Remember!

Yeah visit Grandma and Juba! We all got to travel up to visit and I even got to take my half day off school!

I got some new shoes and had to really run Juba around (to make sure he sleeps well you know)
We got to play lots of games and mommy practiced doing some face painting on Evie and Me and even grandma! Do you like my colorful tiger?

Swing swing! fight!

Then we got home and it was SOOOO cool! It was RAINING in our house!
Mommy and Daddy didn't really seem very happy about it though.
But we did get to go camping at Mr. Mike and Mrs. Shalla's house (backyard-it was really cool)I gardening momma!

It rains it poos! I mean pours

Mommy and Daddy refuse to put pictures up on this post. Daddy spends his time staring at walls and shuddering.

I got to meet some very nice men with really big equipment to fix the potty.

And daddy said that Yes, I know the package says flushable. Yes, I know that's what they are for. NO you should NOT flush all of them at once! This new potty is brought to you by... Your lego fund.

Cycle or life or...

...or as I like to say "Mommy whys that animal in the road?"

As some of you know mommy has been biking me to school now that the weather's nice. But the other day we passed this creature (mommy says its an Opossum) and its just laying there. Well she told me that what this was a part of death. (Which is actually a part of life) Okay I was confused too.

So we pulled into a 7-11 and she got us each a slurpee (Evie even got her own). And we sat on the curb to talk about life and death. I don't really get it. But I know that sometimes animals (and people) are done with this life and its time for them to move on. My friend H's dog had to do this too. But mommy said that the cycle is kind of like this:
Babies born. (new life)
grow and explore and eat (live)
Die and gradually become dirt
seed grows in the dirt, becomes food
New baby eats food...cycle starts again.

Now every day we pass by that opossum fellow and Evie and I are watching it become dirt (or part of the earth)
That's pretty cool! Icky but cool

Vroom, splash and MOM!

Mother's day is here! And Daddy says that Mommy gets to tell us what to do.... um...I didn't know she got a special day for that.

Mommy decided she wanted to watch F1 racing, then put our boats on the bike and take them to the river to go kayaking. I'm good with that cause I suggested the play area and picnic after.

Hehe that's Evie she likes the boats. It was a great time on the water. We got to chase ducks and swans and I saw fish and we raced daddy and we forgot the picnic at home but mommy had some snacks so we ate those and well... um... OH and then we went for ice cream and it was really fun!
Happy mommy's day mommy!

March for Babies!

A wonderful time was had by all. We did a different walk this year. In the past we have walked the Troy one, but this year walked with Sloan's friend Henry at Kensington Park. A very nice walk was had by alland I didn't need to worry about kids running to the streets.

Henry and Sloan even finished with a rock skipping contest.

Box Castles and Fly boats =Birthday!

We even had a party to prove it.

Baoons! Baoons! (Evie means Balloons of course)
Castles! Color!

Hm, okay Evie means that we had cool castles out of boxes and there were these balloons that had boats and the boats had little stuffed animals (everyone gotto take one home... I got the worm!) Andthen Honor and Henry's mom got these cool markers so everyone got to color on the boxes... it was pretty cool.
But there were some times when Zander and me and Henry needed to show the sisters and Sammie how to use some of the new toys. I didn't want Evie to play with the new castle till it gets a princess or queen forit. Oops gotta go show her how stickers work.... no really!

A rainy day in spring

Though since its rainy, maybe people wanted some cheering up... so this is our day (Evie's and me) newest to oldest:
Flour cookie making (to distract mom so she could make the real dough).
Making a marker mural (again this was really to help mommy).
Evie is the Toothfairy, stopped by to watch an episode of Diego while...
I decided to watch Fraggle Rock... college style (my tongue was sticking out till mom took the photo)
And of course, Evelyn is giving my wings a good check to make sure they are ready to fly.

Sloan picked out my outfit today... the wings were a must and the tiara... everything else was optional apparently.
Vroom vroom
