“Up where they stay all day in the sun” (The Little Mermaid)

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

The pictures below are from last weekend. It was a warm weekend in SF, and the kids spent a great afternoon playing in the backyard, splashing in the pool, eating popcorn, and monkeying around. The “new” thing in the house right now is “The Little Mermaid”. We were playing around in the guest room a few weeks ago, and there happened to be a pile of DVD’s that Evan decided to go through. After looking at them, he held up “The Little Mermaid” and said “me watch this one”. As far as we know, he had never seen or heard of this movie, but history has shown us then when he requests a certain video in the car, he usually seems to know what he wants, so we though “what the hay?” and put it on. Well from the very first time they saw it, they were both absolutely absorbed in Ariel! It has become the ONLY thing they want to watch – even Calliou is barely interesting at this point!

It's fun to have a child who will pose for the camera instead of "charging and grabbing" it!

  1. They are getting so big. Just in time, too…Maxwell is on his way!

  2. We’ll have to try Ariel – ANYTHING to get Caillou off Lonan’s mind. It’s practically the only thing he’ll watch and Caillous is sooooo annoying.
