Where did all the moots go?

We just got back from my hometown in Texas.  I was on spring break so I took the kiddos to my family for a whole week.  We had a LARGE time.  My family sorta lives in the country so there are pastures with cows, horses and goats.  Every time we passed by cows, Mary would call them “moots”.  She would yell “ah moots! Ah moots!”. Or if we saw a horse she’d say, “ah ney!  Ah ney!”. She calls them by the sound they make.  You’d have to see it to appreciate how precious it is.  She likes them from afar but HATES them up close (within 100 feet).  She would say, “bye bye moots.”. Luke liked them.  He had a nervous laugh.  I let him pet the horse and he had a look on his face like he didn’t know what to think, but he laughed nervously.  He was soaking it all in!

We went to the beach which was a huge success.  Mary and Luke loved the sand and the birds.  Luke enjoyed the water but Mary would run from the waves that were breaking on the sand.

Picking strawberries from a little farm was also on our list of fun activities.  Mary picked about 2lbs. of strawberries.  

When we finally returned from Texas, Mary announced her displeasure by screaming at the top of her lungs “no no no! Ah Tay-tay! Ah Dee! Ah Momo! Ah Popo! No no NO!!!”, as we pulled into the drive. It’s good to know she had fun with our extended family and now knows all their names, however it is rather unfortunate that our daughter finds our house to be particularly boring in comparison to visiting family.
