They are basically professional corn eaters. It took Charlotte a few minutes to get the hang of it, but she'll be joining the corn eating contests in no time :D Mom ~ you'd better watch out! These two are gonna give you a run for your money!

We had a busy weekend (ok, last weekend...apparently we've been busy since then, too!).
Lots and lots of pics, so here is the summary:
Uncle Chris's house for a dinner party ~ good food and good times visiting with family :D
Reminiscing about running with "Aunt" Shelley (Shelley ~ look! It's our tree!!!)
The park for a jumping-off-the-swing contest (Chris won)
Grandpa's (Larry's) house for shenanigans
Zoo with Uncle Chris
Side note ~ This little owl is super sweet, and we were all googly over his adorableness. He is full grown and very calm. Then the zookeeper told us that he is a great animal to show kids and to use for educational purposes, because he is so calm. Because he got hit by a car. And is brain damaged. Poor owl :(

...Garden! Maya loves helping me "pick up garden" (pull weeds :)), and this week she was even MORE excited because we made some homemade weed killer (vinegar, dish soap, alcohol) to try to bring our flower beds under control. She got to spray the weeds (and pretty much everything else within sight!), and while the weed killer hasn't done much to kill weeds, it did kill quite a bit of time on Friday afternoon!
