Otherwise known as, I found my camera cable!
The girls decided that they wanted to be Pippi Longstockings. So they each got pigtails (Tiny is holding hers out to the sides so they look like Pippi) and Z is riding Pippi’s horse. B asked her what the horse’s name was, and she said she didn’t know. He asked why, and she said it was because the horse never told Pippi what his name was. Touche! (A side note, Z looks very much like her cousin once (twice? I don’t know how this all works. My cousin’s daughter. Whatever that makes her) removed, Maggie, in this picture. )
We’ve been having a lot of tea party lunches around here lately. Why? I don’t know.
This spider is living in our backyard. I’ve gotten a little obsessed trying to take a clear picture of it. It’s apparently an orb-weaver spider or Araneus diadematus. ( I just figured that out. Yay Google.) Not dangerous to humans, which is good, seeing as kids have been playing under it for 3 days and I keep getting close to it to take pictures. The kids also found a gorgeous green beetle (dead), which I have yet to take a picture of, but we kept it because it’s just so cool. I think it’s a figeater beetle. (Don’t you LOVE the internet? So helpful!)
Anyway, just thought I’d share some pictures, mostly for my Auntie. (Love you, Auntie!) More to come, I’m sure, since I’ve found my cable. But I’ll try to limit the spider pictures. 🙂
