We spent the first night with Mutti and dropped off Puck. Olivia wanted to play outside even though it was raining. She had a good time listening to the music Mutti bought her, and playing with her big exercise ball. Olivia didn't sleep well there, though. At 4 AM after Olivia had been up for an hour, I took her to my bed (in the same room). I thought she was going to curl up and go to sleep, but instead she put her head on mine and started telling me stories. Then pulled me to get me up. I put her back in the pack-n-play and slept on the couch. That worked better.
We stayed with my parents the rest of the time. I didn't get pictures until the last night which is entirely unfortunate considering what a good time we had with cousin Jackson and Aunt Beki on Tuesday, Grandma Clara and her chickens and kittens each day, and cousins Abby and Craig each day, too. Olivia probably spent 85% of her waking time outside--petting cows, horses, chickens, and dogs; pretending to be monkeys with Abby and Craig; walking in the woods and the pasture; swinging and saying "Wee!"; playing fetch with the dogs; sliding down the slide and riding the pretend tractor; and just walking around in the yard. Here are some pictures of the last night and morning we left:
Petting horses with Aunt Stephanie.
And cows, too, with cousin Craig and Abby!
Watching Mama pet cows.
"Craig, give me back my camera. I mean it."
Playing with Grandma Dorothy before leaving on Thursday.
Loving all those big dogs!
