Lola loves her toys, and has a basket to hold all of them when they are put away.  Well, this weekend Lola decided she wanted to play with some of her toys, or something like that.

First she started pulling her basket out.  I just figured she was trying to get one of the toys at the bottom of the basket.  That did not appear to be what Lola wanted.  First she started by dumping out all the toys.

Then she started to carrying her empty basket around.

What!?! I wanted to play with the basket!!

Hey, at least she had fun with it for about 20 minutes and I could get some homework done.   Whatever works right?

Another Squirrel Encounter

If you remember, we had a squirrel encounter this summer.  Well, we had another one this past weekend.

We were on a late morning walk, and Lola saw a squirrel about 4 or 5 house ahead.  Once she saw that squirrel, Lola was off and ready to chase it down.  As we got closer, I did not see it and thought it must have gone up in some tree.  Regardless, Lola stopped to smell, everywhere it had been.  Then I started walking and I noticed it at the base of the tree.  Lola was on the other side of the tree, so I was amazed that the squirrel was not scampering up the tree.  That is when I started to notice, that something must have been wrong with the squirrel.

It finally managed to get up to the trunk to the base of the branches, which is only about 5 feet off the ground.  Once it got up there it was still struggling to even stay on the tree.  That was when I figured that must be something wrong with the squirrel.

No matter how annoying the squirrels are I did not want Lola to be standing under it and tormenting it if something was wrong with it.  So I made her continue on our walk.  She did not agree with me, but she relectanly came along.
