they also spent some time climbing trees,
just hanging around,
playing with the dogs,
and playing with fire.
also, we have developed a tradition of playing croquet. this is not your leisurely, backyard game of croquet. even taylor joins in.
and it isn't considered a successful game unless some tears are shed. it's cutthroat! we take our croquet seriously!
and this time i actually remembered to take a picture before mamoo and taylor left! i love this picture!
and now if you'll excuse me, i need to go work on my side shot through the wickets. i can't let my kids beat me. i'm sure that day is coming, but they are going to have to earn it themselves. no handouts from this mama!!! :)
