We love the trampoline Papa got us earlier this spring. We can't wait to try the new big trampoline our cousins Lola and Violet recently got. We understand from uncle Moo that trampolines help increase "athleticism". :)

I'm finally back to my spunky self! Earlier this week I was sick with a very bad stomach bug...not able to keep anything down. As the picture below shows, I slept a ton. Unfortunately I passed it on to my brother and he was throwing up as well. The volume and energy of our household has finally escalated now that Holden and I are feeling better and eating solid foods again.

It made mommy nervous at first...but this is the way papa taught me how to go down the slide last week!
I also enjoyed other activities at the park including riding this lady bug.
I played in the sand box.
I practiced lots of walking...here I took over 20 consecutive steps with my sand toys adding extra balance.
Mommy is glad Holden chose to go FEET FIRST on this slide!

We had so much fun this Friday at the Santa Ana Zoo with my mama's good friend Nicole.
A highlight was hearing Nicole share all about the Dusky Titi Monkeys (pictured in the background) that she worked with for years.
I preferred standing rather than being in the stroller (much better view of the animals)!
Is that a monkey or Karen up in the tree??!
We loved all the hands-on exhibits!
We enjoyed a wild ride in this jungle jeep!
After the zoo we were so glad Nicole could come over and play with us!

Yesterday my mommy and I worked on a really fun project. We made a parachute man.
His first trial was inside from the stairwell landing.
Then I couldn't wait to try parachute man outside from our balcony.
This provided at least an hour of entertainment with no crash landings!

Holden recently spotted a new hummingbird nest on a tree right outside our front door. We've really enjoyed watching the mother bird sit on her two eggs (each the size of a small jelly bean) the past few days.
We've researched that the mother usually incubates her eggs 16 - 18 days. The babies are born with no feathers, dark skin, and closed eyes. The hummingbirds won't leave the nest until full grown. We'll keep you posted and try to take more pictures as we await the arrival of the babies!
