Sophie is visiting the area now, and today she was at my house for a couple of hours. She had a great time playing with Tucky, and when he left to help with youth group at church, Sophie and I went to the park which is near my house.
When we first got there, Sophie and I had the whole place to ourselves so we entertained ourselves by doing the scavenger hunt.
We have to locate the apple, frog, star, clock, carrot, and so forth. Ten items in all. Or "awwb jects" as Sophie drawls it. Objects, if you don't understand Southern.
She loves when she finds the objects first.
About twenty minutes after we got to the park, people started arriving and - yippee! - Sophie had not one, but TWO little girls just a bit older than her to play with.
I had been walking up and down a hill in order to redeem the time and get a little exercise. It's a favorite hill to roll down - or, at least, both Sophie and Zach have rolled down this hill in times gone by.
Sophie asked if they could, and I said I could not give permission for Jillian and Carla since I'm not their guardian/parent. But eventually all three girls rolled down the hill.
Here are a few pictures I took of Sophie in the process.
And finally I had her stop so I could show her her leafy hair!
She loved it!
