When we got back from Canada, Karen and Miranda had already claimed squatter's rights in our house. Steve still had one more week in Reno. Sorry Steven and Karen... Miranda is still the star attraction when you guys come.
Miranda thought Brady was a hoot when he was sliding cars across the floor. There is a video at the end of this blog entry that shows her laughing at him.
She couldn't figure out why the sand kept slipping through her fingers. (The thought just occurred to me that some people have touble that way with money.) Notice the seagull in the background.
How could we go to Santa Cruz without going to Stagnaro's, our favorite seafood restaurant on the wharf, and eat dinner as the sun is setting. We were in the corner by a window and Miranda was facing a blank wall. She spent most of the time there turned around in her high chair watching the people behind us. Brenna does the same thing.
Remember the Weebles tree house? We've still got it but there is only one Weeble left. The "airplane children" work just fine.

I almost forgot. When Steve came back from Reno, Miranda was so excited. She let out one of her deafening (but happy) screams.
