Pretty Emma, she is changing so much
Well, she has all of the right "safety gear" on as she calls it but notice her feet? Yep....the girl can't live without her Old Navy flip flops:) Seriously, not that it is cold here but in the mornings it is chilly and other mom's question me constantly as to why she doesn't have on shoes and socks. We are spreading our rebellion around and starting with our little friend Camila, we brought her two pairs of flip flops back with us. Maybe we'll start a new trend here? :)

I don't know why all my pictures are blurry all of the sudden? But this one is really precious....even blurry:)
We saw a Mexican prairie dog today at the park! The most exciting part of our week. I told the girls we would study about it next week in school. We stood there forever watching him/her work. It was hard labor I tell ya! Moving the dirt out was a great physical effort and then once he got all of the dirt up and out of the hole........half of it would slide back down. Poor little guy!
We watched him underground and we could see the soil and grass shaking and then all of the sudden his little head would pop up and he would take a big bite of grass back down with him. I looked up some information on Wikipedia about him when we got home. "Mexican prairie dogs live in excavated colonies, referred to as "towns", which they dig for shelter and protection. A typical town has a funnel-like entrance that slants down into a corridor up to 100 feet long, with side chambers for storage and nesting."
We looked all around the park, actually we were in the "dog park" today. The "people park" was full of....well....as Lottie put it...."People who were falling in love" :) Our children get an "extra" education here. So anyhoo, they rode their bikes and scooter in the dog park and there were these dirt mounds all over! I don't know why this is so fascinating but we really wanted to see what those tunnels and nests were like underneath. Did you know they can run up to 35 miles an hour? They have short legs! (sigh) Now I have no excuse to not exercise:)
We had an awesome Family Day!
