Miscellaneous pictures from the summer

Here are some miscellaneous pictures from our point and shoot camera. I believe there are more pictures from our SLR camera but I need CS3 to see them and we don’t have it yet. So hopefully more later.

There is nothing like a sleeping baby and LiLi certainly is no exception.

Poppie and LiLi washing Poppie’s car.
I cannot get over that Poppie lets LiLi play in his car and wash it. He would never have allowed us to do that but it is amazing how different grandparents are from parents.

LiLi likes to dig and was given this whole outfit and gardening tools last year which she is finally big enough to use. She certainly likes to dig whether it be at the beach, in a sandbox or in woodchips. We have finally got the yard cleaned up of some of the giant maple tree that came down in the spring and LiLi was given a lovely house from friends who had outgrown it. She enjoys going out to have tea in the house and to swing which she could do for hours.

LiLi was quite excited by this tutu given to her by her Nana who wanted her to have something so she could twirl. Of course, LiLi has now decided that her favorite thing to wear are skirts so she has quite a few things to twirl in.

LiLi is drinking her first Shirley Temple in this picture which was my favorite drink as a child so I was happy to see her enjoying the same thing. LiLi decided to order it after our friend Fischer, who is 5 and with whom LiLi is quite enamored, ordered one.

Another picture at the zoo which remains LiLi’s favorite place to go. Most evenings, she asks me if the animals are sleeping because the zoo is closed and we cannot go. She still loves to watch the elephants get their baths. The new Africa exhibit has just opened so we will have to go soon but of course, we go about every 2 weeks.

We went to visit friends from business school on the Cape a couple of weeks ago. They had a great old farm house with a barn that was partly finished and had a great playroom. Here is a picture of LiLi riding on the rocking horse in that room.
