By the way, what is the technical definition of a toddler? The kids are 3 and 5 now. Is Miles no longer a toddler? Is it defined by when they grow out of the T size clothing.
No it is sometime more of the weird things they say. This morning as I was driving the kids to their respective care Alice and I had this conversation:
A: "I want to move to a different house."
Me: "Why do you want to move?"
A: "Because our house is old."
Me: "Honey, our house isn't that old. And old things can still be nice."
Miles: "Yah, I like old things"
Me: "Where would you like to move to Alice?"
A: "To that pink house that our Dad has."
This is weird! Number 1) because Aaron and I live together in the same house; number 2) because she has mentioned this pink house several times. She will point out a pink house while we are driving in town (I have no idea the pink house she is referring to because I never see a pink house when she points it out). When she does point out this house she says, "that is the pink house that Dad has" and that she wants to go there.
Ok, I never know what to say. I have no other assumption to make besides her remembering a past life where her Dad in that life lived in a pink house. Unless, that is if Aaron has another house that I don't know about and he has taken Alice there.
At least they haven't said anything creepy to me like they want to see what my insides look like.

Summer is in full swing and we are soaking it up. We went camping with our friends the Ottos. We went to Wylie Park in Aberdeen, South Dakota. It was super fun. We made Smores and cooked over the campfire. We cooked our breakfast in bacon grease and I made tortillas over the fire for the first time.
Aberdeen has an amazing community pool. We went there but no photos because, well...water. Poor Alice fell asleep on the ride from the campground to the pool and I took her back to the campsite so she could nap. We'll we paid for it when she woke up. She was so upset that she missed the pool. I'll need to make it up to her again some time.
There was a big storm on Saturday night and sleeping in a tent with strong winds, rain and a ton of lightening is quite frightening. Although the kids didn't seem phased by it. They slept right through it.
