Sibling Rivalry

Scene: Leo is playing Plants vs. Zombies on the iPad, Lucy is watching.

Lucy [grinning]: Leo, that zombie is going to eat your braaaiiiins!
Leo [v. serious]: No it isn’t.
Lucy [stands up, starts jumping up and down, screaming]: YES IT IIIIIIIIIIIIS!!!!!!!!!!
Leo [uncomprehending]: No, look! [Leo tries to explain his strategy to Lucy]
Lucy: ITS GOING TO EAT YOUR BRAAAAIIIIINS LEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leo: No, Lucy!
Lucy: YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!
Leo: Dad, Lucy says the zombie is going to eat my brains, but it isn’t!!
Lucy: YES IT IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS!
[on and on like this]

Lucy is becoming quite adept at pushing Leo’s buttons, and Leo can’t quite yet figure out that he is being teased. He is very literal-minded and Lucy is sneaky.

Visitors

Grandpa Ken and Great Grandma Alberta are here for a visit. We are sleeping on the blow-up bed which turns out to provide endless entertainment for the kids. Maybe we’ll blow it up next weekend even when we have no visitors so they can have a jump.

Here is the gang lookin’ real arty.

Alberta dries figs at her house. He she is asking Great Grandma for another fig please.
