And watching mommy & Grandma Jane jump in the pool at Uncle Larry's house! (seems the sound on this video didn't quite survive the arduous journey of uploading, sorry!)

Columbus

We were in Columbus last weekend visiting Papa Jon & Grandma Miriam, and as you'll see in the pictures, this time, Aunt Sarah and Jonas were there, too!

Among other things, we watched some cartoons at the Ohio Theatre, swam at the Worthington Pools, and enjoyed Bethany's favorite playground near her grandparents' house, called (by her) Squishyland (because of the rubbery ground underfoot).

As usual, our girls had a fantastic time visiting their grandparents, and they can't wait to see them again!

Sorry!

Last night, at Bethany's request, was game night. The choice of game was, of course, Sorry!

Monday Miscellany

Just some pictures of some things the girls have enjoyed doing lately. Enjoy!

Playing in a creek:

(with most of the Radts, of whom only Ameila landed in a picture that turned out!)

Helping wash the car:

Playing the classic game, shoe-hands:

(the game is, of course, related to sock-hands)

Playing with Play-Doh:

"Helping" stain the deck:

And bathtime:

(a bathtime which has already been effectively nullified by excessive sweaing, of the non-clinical variety. Oh, well.)

And there you have it: a few regular days in the life of three small Buffalo Buckeyes!

O-H-I-O!

This isn't related to our daughters at all, but this blog is called "Buffalo Buckeyes", after all, so I'd be remiss if I didn't post this group of photos, taken in a photobooth at a wedding last weekend.

O-H-I-O

Go Bucks! (if you don't totally get what's going on in the photos right away, this might help)

Summerfest

Last Sunday was Summerfest at Camp Pioneer. The girls had a great time, as usual! Here are a few shots of their favorite things this year: the "train ride", the bounce houses, and the swings!

Water!

Have you noticed we haven't had many swimming/water fountain pictures yet this summer?

Me too. Here you go!

Buttermilk Falls State Park

For our third camping trip of the summer, we spent the week in Buttermilk State Falls Park, near Ithaca. It was beautiful, as were the two other state parks very nearby.

There were playgrounds. There were waterfalls. There were There were campfires. There were more waterfalls. There were gorges ("Ithaca is gorges", get it?). There was even a fairy house! Oh, and there were waterfalls. (They left quite an impression, can you tell? I'm not sure how many good photos we got, but the waterfalls were amazing.)

Anyway, we all had a lot of fun, even though we got rained out our last night. Our girls are going to be seasoned campers, that's for sure!

By the end of the week, our girls were (perhaps surprisingly) still very happy...

IMG_20110706_175047

but very tired!

And they're all looking forward to next time!

(Seriously, I have been a BAD BLOGGER lately, so do me a favor: if you read this blog, and you notice it has been a few days since any new pictures showed up, get on my case, huh? Thanks.)
