Steve and I have been watching Allie for the past 3 days while Josh and Julie celebrated their first anniversary Up North. The other grandma had night duty. Yesterday we had company; Shanna brought her kids over and we walked the half mile or so up the hill to the park (a playground is being built in Josh's neighborhood close by but it's not done). Lots of barn swallows and killdeer. The barn swallows near Josh's house last year attacked him and their dog but these in the picnic shelter left us alone. The 4 babies were hidden until the mom swooped in for the feeding. Very graceful birds. The playground had two swirly things that the kids hadn't seen before. Unfortunately, the spinning bowl terrified both Daniel and Tessa. Allie was happy enough to be in the Baby Bjorn on the way there and the swings.
I haven't got much bike riding in between babysitting and rain. Tomorrow, no excuse.
