Something must have spurred in Noodle but she spent quite a bit of time out on the deck this holiday weekend. Despite her winter fur coat, she was out there Saturday, Sunday, and today for what seemed like hours (but it was more like 30-45 minutes) off and on. She was even out there more frequently than her brother. She attacked the ceramic frog that Dave's dad made for us, ate a bird feather (or what looked like one), and laid out in the shade. We put her up on one of the camping chairs and she looked inside the window with such focus ... I'm not sure she understood that that was the bedroom she normally hangs out in. Do they understand the connection?
Yesterday, we all played with the Hello Kitty bubbles, too. Well, it was more like I was blowing them, Dave was laughing at my attempts, and the kids were successfully ignoring me.
But alas, too much sun and excitement out on the deck meant long, comfortable naps ... sprawled out in bed now. That also means that they will awake with energy when it's time for the humans to end the night.
