All Wet

Now that it's summer, Evelyn's "helping" around the house has moved outside. She's still not quite tall enough to push the lawn mower. But she does like to water the flowers and plants.
Watering Everything

Of course, she mostly just waters herself. Since she won't use both hands to hold her watering can, her legs and shoes get soaking wet.

Maybe that's why she's getting so tall.

The First Cut

Evelyn finally let us cut her hair this morning. Below are some pictures of the process.

She was unfazed by the whole thing and it didn't take long at all. If only trimming her fingernails was this easy...

Duck Spotting

Evelyn has seen plenty of ducks. Well, she's seen pictures of ducks, played with rubber duckies, and been wrapped up in a towel that looks like a duck. But she just got her first glimpse of an actual duck.

Duck Watching

She now knows what a duck really looks like. And sounds like.

Instead of saying "quack" she now says "whatever that noise is that ducks actually make." You know what I mean. It's not spellable. The duck noise.

The one you're making right now.

Back to the Beach II

Evelyn enjoyed her second visit to Ocean City, Maryland, last week. She had lots more fun this year than during her first visit.

She posed for the camera in her bikini.

She jumped the waves with her friend Annika.
At the Beach

She played with her bucket in the sand.

She got tired of us taking her picture.

Pool Floating

All in all it was a good time. You can tell by the amount of sand that made it back to our house.
