Smoke Rings

Say Hey Blogtrotters,

Here's me shooting smoke rings from my super deluxe air cannon. The smoke balls only last for about 30 seconds so I need to invest in some that cost more than the shipping. Anyway, enjoy and be amazed my my awesomeness! Oh, and please see the post from yesterday for pictures of the girls.

Lil' Sebastian

Ahoy, Ahoy, Blogtrotters,

The lil' family went to Dallas Heritage Park today. It's your basic ol'timey pioneer village in the downtown area of major metropolitan city. It was extremely boring. "It's the least amount of fun anyone can have that doesn't involve baseball!" Said Abby Morris. Well, the girls just loved it. We spent about 4 hours there and they almost cried when we had to leave (because it had closed 20 minutes earlier). Abby promised them that we could come back for storytime (which includes singing, a craft and a pioneer story) too bad storytime is during the day while I'm at work. stupid summer vacation! So seriously it was horrendously boring, but it was an absolutely beautiful day and they had silkworms, so really it was a win-win. Oh, and they started shearing the sheep at 1:00 and we watch almost the entire time and it was getting close to being almost close to almost being close to being done when the pioneer ladies kicked us out. Poor, long suffering Mabel.
Tilly in yellow and Ellie in pink. Ha. tricked you! Ellie in yellow and Tills in pink. The umbrella shot was their reaction to the sheep's "hair cut".

Abby's got a job if this library thing doesn't work out. They're up to 4 part time staff members so I bet the pay is pretty good. "They had asparagus!" was her reason for being so enthralled.

Here, 2 poor teenage children of a pioneer lady are forced to clean the wool. Ellie jumped right in and helped, but Tilly didn't want to touch the poop water for some reason, so she just played with Ellie's hair and told the 2 teenagers about how pretty her nails are. They weren't as impressed as you'd expect them to be by rainbow colored nails. Luckily for them Ellie was there to splash water all over their pioneer clothes. The girls really did love it.

In this one Ellie was concerned about splinters. Earlier in the day she pretended to wash all of our hands by rubbing them with a stick, I personally got 3 splinters from the "cleaning".
