Boxing and Dinosaurs

Autumn is a good boxer, when she pays attention she can beat whoever she plays. Apparently if you box while standing in a box you do better..... She likes to play the Wii with mommy and daddy but we have to find games where there is no button pushing because she doesn't get that concept yet. But baseball and boxing are two she can and does play. She is also learning how to use a mouse on the computer, it's been fun watching her figure out how to move her hand to control the pointer on the screen. The other thing Autumn is good at is being a dinosaur, this has taken on a new level of expertise now that she actually looks like one. A friend of ours loaned us a dinosaur costume that it is next to impossible to peel off of Autumn! We've been shopping in it, to gymnastics in it, playing outside in it, to a potluck/picnic in it...... I managed to get it into the washer just in time to get dressed for church so I took a little frou-frou princess to church rather than a green dinosaur! :) I swear that if I'd had little white lace gloves for her she'd have worn those with her "cincess" dress and "pwee" sandles, fancy hair and purse! That's my dinosaur princess for you.

This weekend was quite busy, we went to the zoo, went swimming with friends, a cookout with family......

We gave Bear a bath this weekend, she was looking rather dingy. Autumn had fun drying her with the hair dryer.

We went swimming with friends at their YMCA which has a zero depth entry pool. We tied a pool noodle around her waist (to help with floating) and she took off, she was totally independent in the pool! AAAAhhhhhhh!!!! She kicked and kicked (looked like walking in the water) and was 'simming' all over the pool by herself. My baby is growing up!!!!

At the zoo we saw the butterflies for the last time this summer as well as the African animals. Autumn was so excited to see the 'zoobas' and 'raffs' but when we got there she was totally amazed by the 'osters' (ostriches). We had lots of fun seeing the other animals too. I'm including pictures of a previous trip when Autumn tried her hardest to get a goat to go home with us. :)
