Outside Again

Guess who got to play outside yesterday? I decided to not be such a stick-in-the-mud and to go outside instead of blogging, so Bronwen got to play in the front yard. I know, I went soft, but it's hard to resist the charms of a nearly two-year-old when she's dying to play with the big kids.

She started out on Ian's abandoned scooter, but after taking a spill, decided to see what the boys were up to.

No big surprise (since the bikes and scooters had been tossed aside,) they were engaged in a Jedi-Sith battle. The fourth Jedi/Sith (as I'm not sure who was whom) is our next door neighbor.
Bronwen quickly joined the game as the medic, administering to those who had been hurt in the battle. She fulfilled this role well until she found that one of the wounded had lost his weapon and she decided to join the cause. She might love pink and Sleeping Beauty and ballerinas, but she can play Star Wars with the best of them!

And P.S. to Becky, my old roommate from BYU days: What's the deal with leaving me a comment and not leaving any contact information? Please email me: sleepymumATgmailDOTcom. I would love to catch up on your life!

She looks so cute on that scooter! Someday she can pretend that she is Princess Leia!

Now there's a girl after my own heart! Fight hard Bronwen! You gotta represent! Lol!

It's too bad we don't live closer. Our kids would entertain each other playing Star Wars for hours!

Erika said...

Ha ha. too cute!
Did you see the email I sent you about doing cute girl hair?

Sonja said...

They got her, eh?

Well...resistance is...no, wait, that's another movie.

Oh I'm wishing for warmer go-outside-and-play weather.

As I sit here looking out the window at the snow falling - again - I'm happy to see children playing on grass. :) Looks like they had a great time!

She is so cute... Just love little girls that are girly but not afraid to get dirty...

She is unbelievably adorable. And spunky, too, since she decided to join in the fight. Ah, to be young and indestructible again!

Hooray for outside time!

Bronwen looks like such a big a girl playing! There were foam swords at my house around Christmas time and Calli couldn't even figure out what to do with them. By the way, I about died laughing when I read the post on your Healthy Habits blog when Jared said, "You got up at 6, now go back to bed." That is SO something Dan would say and do. The thing is, if the roles were reversed, I would totally be getting on him for NOT REALLY keeping his goal. Guess sometimes men are more compassionate than we are-- or at least not wanting us to be too hard on ourselves and wonder why we would have to accomplish goals like that anyway. Good luck with your habits, but try to not over-do it. (Although I have no room to talk.)

I don't know why New York seems so much farther away...I still depend on blogs to see my grandkids. Thanks for the picture and story. Now, when is my next trip?
