Earlier this week, we found a park on the south end of town that never had any other kids, but does have a really fun rock wall to climb.
As an added bonus, blackberries grow profusely behind the building next door. Benji enjoys picking and eating them, but still has to practice sharing. Mom asked him to give her a berry, do he picked one, put it in her hand, then immediately snatched it back and popped it into his mouth.
We’ve also made it to the beach a few more times; despite low, misty clouds plaguing us every morning, must afternoons fine up and allow us some play time.
This coming weekend (I think) is a big sand volleyball tournament, with 2,000 teams and 140 nets. I mention this because we got to watch the Bobcat tractors with giant drill bit thingies drilling holes for those 280 poles. Benji’s been talking about it (using primarily elaborate charades supplemented with sound effects) for days.
Yesterday Ian’s parents came down to join us for a couple days. Here are some miscellaneous pictures from these days.
