New favorites

We are still here with my parents in Western WA, though we are winding down towards the end of our three week visit.  I'm starting to get a little panicky, hoping that I haven't missed anyone and feeling the time-crunch of the End. 

That's why our visits are so long -- to enable a nice, leisurely visit vs. a frantic, frenzied week-long blitz.  I like it so much better that way, though we do miss Blaine.

The boys have been having a great time with Grandma and Grandpa.  "Fruit yogurt" from Grandma and lengthy games of Candy Land with Grandpa probably top the (very long) list.  My parents are having a nice time with the boys too, but have wondered "How on earth did we do it?!" in remembering of the energy-levels and constant direction that comes with little ones.

Here are a few of the boys' favorite things from this visit:

Playing outside has been a big hit --
Diego still hasn't found a frog or a bird's nest,
but loves playing with the dog and has found many, many slugs.
Truen picks me dandelions almost every time he is outside.

 "Candy Island" with Grandpa --
Diego is particularly crazy about it.
One time he got the Candy Heart four times in one game.
Yowza.  That's a lot.
Truen usually plays a quarter or half-game 
before he gets bored and wanders off,
though he did last long enough to win yesterday.

Jamie's new trick:
Sucking on a strategically-placed clean diaper --
Very tasty with an intriguing mouth-feel.
