and the guest of honor with his birthday cake. I suspect that they just used their leftovers from snack time to make it though...
The party was going fine, until I saw Kiersten laying on the stairs with her eyes squeezed shut. I asked what she was doing, and Kara said, "I'm being her mom, but I wasn't keeping an eye on her at the party, and a man came and took her in the woods and shot her." I usually let them play what and how they want, and use their imaginations, but that one was too much for me. i told them I don't like them playing games about killing or guns, and that they had to play something happy instead. Kiersten jumped up and said, "a big dinosaur came and got the bad guy, and I came back alive!"
Last week I took the girls to the park to play. It was the first nice sunny day in a while. Here are a few pictures of the fun.
Kara was a little disappointed to have to sit in a baby swing. Sometimes there is a normal swing there instead, but not this time.
Kiersten is so proud to be able to pedal her bike on her own. The other day she pedalled all the way around the block twice by herself when we went on a walk. usually she gives up and walks or rides in the stroller. I was glad not to have to push or carry the bike home for once.
