At the Farm

On Sunday, Evelyn went to a family reunion out on her great-aunt and -uncle’s farm.  It was lots of fun to see all the family, and to meet a lot of people she hadn’t met before.  Grandma came, and took Evelyn into the barn to meet some of the animals.  Evelyn met the cows, a goat, and the donkeys.

Evelyn thought the donkeys were really funny.  Here she’s pointing them out to Grandma between giggles.

There were also beanbags to play with!

Playing with the Ball

Evelyn recently got to go on a picnic with a bunch of friends, including Zoe.  Zoe is three, and recently learned to play soccer.  She was enthusiastic about trying to teach Evelyn how to play, but Evelyn hasn’t quite grasped the idea of “no using your hands.”  She did have a fantastic time chasing the ball after Zoe kicked it, though.

When Zoe saw there was ball-playing going on, she raced right over to join in.

“You don’t use your hands in soccer, Evelyn.”

Evie raced across that stretch of grass in no time flat – it’s like she’s been walking her whole life.

That’s her “I’m having way too much fun to just smile” face.
