We were very impressed with Daisy who cycled all the way to Safeway (1/2 mile) before going to the park and then all the way home again.

The sun did come out a bit, though.
We had fun playing in the river
And Gareth went in for a swim. Lucy and Daisy did too - and both got up to their tummies before deciding it was too cold! (Lizzy chickened out. She claimed being pregnant and cold was a good excuse.)
And we had to say farewell to Mike and Hannah - the girls got very used to having them around, and we were all sad to see them go.

Yesterday we went out to see the movie Little Miss Sunshine and haven't laughed/cried so hard in a long time. Perhaps it's all the things that go wrong, perhaps it's the social commentary on kid's beauty pageants here in the US, perhaps its the presence of the VW van, or maybe the view of Daisy Mountain (yes, right by our house!) as they drive on the I-17 and pass the signpost for the Carefree Highway - who knows, but if you're able to cope with some swearing and some crudeness, go see this movie and laugh! Click here to see the trailer, or click here for the official site. (Lizzy says she nearly had the baby she laughed so much!)
