Got to sneak in some baby snuggles with my cousin's littlest one yesterday. So sweet. So stubborn about sleeping for me. I still kind of wanted to steal him.

We went to the park and played in the swimming ponds (our town has a fantastic outdoor swimming area). I had foolishly thought we could just play in the sand but of course Ria tripped and got soaking wet, and Sunny kept crouching down in the water. Good thing I brought spare clothes, and learned that Ria can still wear her little sister's shorts, even if they are a bit short!
The girls have decided that this little grove of trees is their fort. I approve, however Ria does often tell me (dramatically) that she wants a reeeeal tree house. Not today, kid.
This garden is a hot mess, but everything looks pretty in the evening light!
Both the girls got haircuts yesterday, if Sunny won't let me do anything with her hair, it should at least be a managable length.
I went outside after dinner and found her crouched, with her face in a bucket. She was so still for so long that I wondered if it was possible to fall asleep like that. Then she popped up and showed me her new pet beetle. She said that she thought it was a baby beetle and was lost from it's family and far from home. But it didn't speak human so she wasn't sure. And then she squished it in an attempt to love it too much. But it was still slightly alive, and Ria wanted to keep it as a pet in her plant in the bedroom.
Seriously, these kids.

I just can't get enough of the evening light this time of year.
We had a picnic with friends and I did a family photoshoot of them (coming soon!) but of course my kids managed to get photographed as well.
