October Activities

It is quite obvious that Evelyn loves animals. She has two stuffed dogs, Duncan and Flop, that she just loves. She has many other stuffed animals that she also gives quality playing time. She knows the "sounds" of lions-tigers-bears-cats (raaaaaaaar), fish (fish face), horses, monkeys, birds, ducks, cows, dogs (panting), and probably a few more.

For Zeeland's Pumpkinfest we took her to the Critter Barn petting zoo. Stuffed animals are fun, but live animals are the COOLEST. She's probably a little more brave than she should be. One of these days the "ga" (dog) she runs up to might not be so nice. Fortunately all the animals at the critter barn were very nice.

This was the most bizarre bunny I've ever seen. It was so fluffy it didn't seem real.

Erin and I walked around downtown during Artprize 2 weeks ago. Neither of us are 'art types' but we were both really impressed and enjoyed it. I was astounded by the level of creativity and variety among the artists.
The moose was at the top of both of our lists.
I was amazed at the precision and ingenuity of the salt portraits.
Around the house, Evie's personality is coming out more and more. She likes most foods, including fruits, veggies, and meat...but she LOVES sweets. Last week she picked up the word "cookie" all on her own. It is now the most clear word she says, and she says it often.

Evie insists on helping me with any house project.
And in general she likes to climb on everything.
