maiaselene: (Oh Snap!)
A few weeks ago, Zoe was swinging around this Skeleton-on-a-string that she got for Halloween. Naturally, Cheetahmaster told her to stop. At which point she put her hands on her hips and said: "But I was only pretending to be a pirate!"
To which, the response was "But you were really swinging that around! Only real pirates are allowed to do that."
So she says, "Well, how can I be a real pirate then?"
For some reason, I just blurted out: "You have to go to pirate school when you grow up."

Now, every time we ask her what she wants to do when she grows up, she says: "I want to go to pirate school." (& kind of looks at us begrudgingly.) LOL

Also, it's camera-cleaning time! Random photo dump: )

As promised, Pictures!

Before we left for VA, I was telling her about what we were going to do. She didn't believe me. Here's 'that look' )

The first day at grandmas:
The dress up bin comes out... )

Silliness with a wig... )

Zoe doesn't have much of a yard regularly, but grandma's got a few acres.... The girls had a great time running around outside and playing in the woods.

Mom takes the girls for a walk to collect treasures from the woods: )

Playing on the Swing )

Trinity and Zoe learn to use the hose... )

When the girls are away, the adults will play:

Here's me and Trevor whooping Dave and Cecily's butt in Spades: )

The next night we had sparklers, and some little "fireworks" for the kids:

The 'fireworks' were loud: )

The sparklers were a hit, though: )

The last day, it was just us and grandma.

Zoe lines up all her toys and plays teacher: )

Zoe teaches grandma too: )

She also got a chance to play with her other new friend, Shaman. )

Then it was off to my parent's house.

We had some real fireworks, this time: )

Zoe was a bit scared, at first: )

Then just trepidatious: )

Then, she loved them! )

She even asked, at one point, to hold the Roman Candles we were setting off!
Instead, we gave her more sparklers: )

The next day, my mom and I took Zoe to the Nature Center...

Zoe was very excited about the snakes: )

and totally bummed that she couldn't pet them: )

She could pet the turtles, however: )

& She got very excited over the Owls and Birds: )

That IS an Eagle )

I think he wanted to eat her. )

The Nature Center also had a play area.

Which had a cave for exploration: )

Then we took her to the neighboring park. )

Then we took her for a ride on the paddleboats: )

Then we stopped for some HUGE Dora-shaped ice cream: )

After such a long day, she didn't want to go to sleep, but curled up in my dad's lap grumpily: )
maiaselene: (What's Up)
Last Thursday, while Cheetahmaster and I were stuck in some traffic, we were accosted by this (!?) )
maiaselene: (party)

So, even though there's only like 5 of you on my friends list... I'm gonna try to do this meme thing. If you all respond, it might actually be fun. *hint-hint* ;-)

1. Think of a word you would use to describe me.
2. Go to Google Image Search and search for that word.
3. Select the picture you see as most fitting, and post it as a reply.
4. Post this meme in your journal.

Though I don't think any of you are as retarded as me when it comes to computers... here's how you post a picture: <img src=""/ ...just to save you from trying to figure it out. :-)
