There are certain things in this world, seen or heard, that brighten up my day in strange and beautiful ways. Some examples:
6. When Chuck is out of town, he always calls on the way home. He lies about where he is on the road to be able to surprise me when he walks in the door. It's adorable.
7. The squirrels Mom have trained to come when you cluck at them. The kids feed them nuts on the front porch. I caught myself tittering at a perfectly innocent squirrel in a parking lot the other day.
I'd love to hear from you all out there on the internet. What makes you happy?

At the request of my dear sister, who provided us with this source of entertainment. Here is a little 30 sec. video of The Hamster Wheel:
A few things of note:
My child is too wimpy to walk. Crawling works best.
Layla starts to have a meltdown and the end repeating "my turn! my turn!" When it was her turn, she just sat in it and refused to let anyone near it.
The older kids tried the wheel but it was too small so they curled up in little balls to use it. John Paul uses the head method here:
Also, does anyone else hate the sound of their own voice? Yikes.

Bad weather and long naps kept us inside most of the day Saturday. Even Mia took a nap thanks to some gorgeous morning weather and soccer. I decided it was time to introduce the girls to Hibachi! Chuck was skeptical but I was confident that they would love it. I was right. We told Mia it would be a show and by the end of the meal, I was really sick of the word 'show' because Mia would not get over it. "when does the show start?" "when will they cook our food?" "Is this the show?" "Is the cleaning a show?" "I'm glad that's not the show or it would be a really boring show"
I got more entertainment from watching the girls attempt to use chopsticks.
