J & Cutie Face
Since peekaboo is big right now, this is a common sight at our house. Two little ghosties running around, bumping into things, until you've asked where they are enough times that they are ready to reveal their hiding spot!
Sunday, as we all know, was Father's Day. Unfortunately, the teething twinners were cranky & daddy felt under the weather. So, I didn't get the adorable father/kiddos pictures I had planned. These are the only 2 decent ones I got the entire day :(

Notice every kiddo had a snack!
I didn't need 2 pictures of the cousins hanging out before the circus, but the first one is the only one where part of Allie's face was turned toward the camera, and I love that I caught Cuppycake playing with the hair bow of the girl in front of her in the second pic!
The circus had a lot of animals: lions & tigers, camels, elephants, ponies, dogs. Ryan loved all the animals and would reach out and wave to them!
Isn't she cute?!
She isn't small because we were so far away. This trapeze artist is small because she's 7! In fact, a number of the circus performers were children. It is a family business and EVERYONE in the family got involved - from trapeze to motorcycles to hula hooping (she managed to keep 75 going!) to filling in for their ringmaster dad when he was performing - those kids did a little bit of everything!
Harper & Allie got bored with the show so we let them run around behind the bleachers.
Ultimately, they were a little young to fully enjoy the circus (which I knew, but still thought it would be fun to try). We didn't stay for the end. The motorcycles came out and the noise freaked Allie out. We had to go outside and then she cried every time I tried to go back in...but we made some fun memories, and had a blast with Cousin Cuppycake & Aunt Min!

They also got to play in mommy & daddy's bathroom. We have a walkout shower, so I opened one door, turned on the shower, and let them choose between playing in the bathroom or the water.
The toilet paper roll was an exciting toy...
Ry-guy tried climbing in the cabinet under the sink...
And his sister promptly tried shutting him in (she did shut him in the closet later in the week...)
Playing with the hand-held shower sprayer was fun.
Allie cleaned her tummy.
Ryan cleaned his fish.
A few times we let them play on the tile in the kitchen & dining room.
Ryan like playing with the salad bowls (all washed before we used them again!)
Allie opened as many cabinets and drawers as she was able.
On the nice days we spent a lot of time outside in our pool.
They are fans of splashing from outside the pool rather than getting in...
Here you can see them throwing their toys out of the play yard.
Here you can see their distress when they no longer had any toys in the play yard.
Here you can see their response when I mimicked them crying over the toys!
We had very few casualties - Ry-guy did manage to pee INSIDE of my hutch where I keep my nice dishes, and Allie left a poo pile in the hallway (that we didn't discover until they had been down for naps for a little while, although I thought I smelled something!). And, it was so effective at clearing up the diaper rash that I didn't even care!
