Bok! Bok!

Every time we drive by any amount of trees, Aurora lets us know that she wants to stop and play. "Bok! Bok!" she cries, alerting us to a park in the vicinity and the potential for fun to be had.

We went to Mt Tabor last weekend for a short play. The playground by the off-leash area is old school with only a merry go round, slide, and swings.

Gary and Aurora went down the slide about 50 times, always being careful to tuck Aurora's arms and legs in so they wouldn't get caught on the side and broken (not kidding) while I tickled her tummy from the side as they slid down.

Then Gary and I sat on the merry go round while Aurora pushed us. She is such a good little helper since she doesn't know much about the drudgeries of Work yet.

Aurora is such a good climber. Here she is after we had dinner with Jen, James, Lily and baby James at the playground, running off our dinner (well, some of us. Others were just standing around talking).
Take a last look at her pink polliwalks, because she threw them out the window that night and I never found them. Good thing I got them for 75% off!

I know there's a lesson here, but when we're at the playground, my brain just can't muster the reserves to think about electrons and static and why it makes Aurora's hair stand on end.

It's pretty cute, though.

Tiny House

Here's Aurora in a little house at Portland Nursery last week.

She loves being in a space that's just her size, and she screamed and struggled when it was time to leave.
