Keegan, "How is that spider thing pronounced?"

Me, "A swastika?"

Keegan, "Yes. That's it."

Kelsey Caitlyn Quote

Listening to some song lyrics...
Kelsey, "What did he just say she wore in her eyes?"
Me, "The stars from the sky."
Kelsey, "Oh." Pause. "Huh."
Caitlyn, "That is exactly what I thought."

More Summer Fun

One of our favorite things this summer has been that Brooklin has been here to visit quite a bit. Yea!
We spent one morning at a park with fountains (referred to as "the water park" by Brooklin.) Coincidentally, we ran into some of our best friends that same day. Yea, again!

Many games of tag were played. And all these many months later, Clara, the Mouse King, and the Nutcracker are still favorites. Clara tended to get sleepier and sleepier as the game continued :).
Happy cousins

A local farmers' market recently had a cupcake contest. Both Caitlyn and Keegan decided to participate, decorating cupcakes to look like something you would find at a farmers' market. Below are the cute results!
 Kelsey went with corn on the cob cupcakes. We looked long and hard for just the right yellow candies :).
 Caitlyn made flowers out of marshmallows and topped them with colored sugar.
 And ended up winning both her age group and the people's choice award! Woo, hoo!
they had such fun and all of the entries looked so cute! Love fun stuff like this :)!

Keegan, "Kind of like during the Middle Ages... not Smurfs, but it sounds kind of like Smurfs..."
Caitlyn, "Serfs?"
Keegan, "Yes! That's it! Serfs."

Me, interrupting, "This is the seventh."
[Her birthday is the 8th.]
Keegan, "NOo, it's not..oh, wait. Nevermind."
