We quickly moved on, however, to see the swan's nest.
We sauntered back home, still in time for naps. I couldn't believe that Amadea stayed awake for this entire trip!
I am adding these random pictures below to the post because....well....I couldn't not add them!
This picture of Amadea is probably my all-time favourite of her. So beautiful.
Oh, and my apologies for how out of date this one is, but it must be posted. Aren't the big kids so great, pushing the little guys in the swings? Also, I get a good laugh when I look at Amadea and the rice cake hanging out of her mouth. It is especially funny to me because these kids are ALWAYS eating when we are outside! They have bottomless stomachs!
And here is Noah and a little butterfly doing Lego. (Oops, I can almost hear her now, saying "They're not butterfly wings Charla. They're fairy wings.)
The two pictures below were taken in a rare moment when the kids were all relaxing on the couch together. They were listening to the Lion King audio cd, and Noah is following along in the book.
Here are Riley and Thomas on one of our many hiking trips behind Lithuania Park. They always ask me to photograph them sitting on this same log. :)
We had a wonderful visit from one of our alumni, Oscar. He and Thomas were very good buddies back in the day. It was nice for them to reconnect!
Behold the window washer: aka Spiderman. You don't see this every day, folks.
And finally, this picture I took today just melted my heart! You're welcome for making your day. ;)
