Pgh trip

Well, we avoided near disaster when Popo brought our left toy backpack to the airport.

Everyone did great on the plane, but safety pops where quite messy for Brock.

Had a great time at the family reunion and then spent a couple of hours with Brian, Savanah, Conner, and Cadence.

On Sunday, had breakfast with Pappy and Cindy. Then a fantastic picnic at Tom and Jennifer's where we saw Maria, Peter, and the Foote gang again.

After several mishaps and misunderstandings around the rental car - we left three hours later than the we wanted (8pm instead of 5). Brock didn't fall asleep until near 10. It is a quarter to 11 and Quinn, Samantha, and Nathan are still awake watching videos.

Cautious bravery

I'm so proud of Quinn today.
First I'm proud of her for wanting to ride her bike down the big hill at Godwin park. Second, I'm proud of her for figuring out how
to drag her bike up the hill ( she ended up pulling the front handlebars while manually turning the front wheel). Finally I'm proud of her for deciding not to ride down the hill once she got to the top. Brave, creative, and cautious - what a fabulous combination.

Pineapple burns

After sucking on the core and having about fifteen pieces of pineapple, Quinn ended up "burning" her tongue from the bromelian (the enzyme in pineapple that causes that sensation... It is also used as a meat tenderizer)
