Star Performers

We just returned from a nice, long weekend at the beach.  Family and good food...what more can you ask for?  Max and Claire loved being the center of attention (when are they not?!).  They pulled out all their tricks and even added a few.
Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Darcy loved watching Claire walk around the house.  She is busy all the time.  She constantly signs "please" until you do what she wants.  This weekend she wanted to be outside looking for doggies.  She has also learned to sign "bird".  Love her and those precious cheeks!
Max showed them he learned to sign too!  This weekend he added "eat" and "birds" to his bag of tricks.  All together he can sign "please", "more", "eat", "ball", and "bird".  This weekend I let them splurge and have a cupcake.  They LOVED it!! I started off only giving them half, then Claire wouldn't stop signing "please" and Max kept signing "more" "food" "please"!!! It was so cute... needless to say, they got the other half!!
We had a nice walk on the beach, made complete by doing cartwheels!  
I felt the stretch... not sure my body has felt that in a while... not sure I'll be doing that again!


  1. I bet they really enjoyed that cupcake! It's amazing how many signs they know, and that they sign please of all words!
