Emma ran around a lot. She'd start at the deck and run all the way to the fence, and then turn around to look at us, almost like for further "going crazy" instructions or suggestions.
All that talking about nature reminded Dwight of a turtle he saw at work, so he showed Emma the picture he took on his phone.
Emma's a keen listener. Even when she'd rather be hunting lightning bugs.
Dwight and Jeff got some exercise. I'm happy to tell you that Emma's arms are still in their sockets, and the giggles abounded during this segment of the evening.
Plus, that's a heck of a good sun...
The goodbye ritual was as cute as ever. After a chorus of "see ya", "toodleoo" and "see ya later alligators", Emma put her little hand to her head and said "Peace Out". Jeff told us later that she was sitting in her car seat on the ride home and she kept saying "Daddy, I gotta peace out...I gotta peace out." Cuteness.
