So, Allen has taken an interest in "kids" of late. He always wants to "go to the park and see kids," and talk to other kids when we see them. There aren't too many "kids" close to his age at the Kingdom Hall, but there are about a million in our neighborhood.

He has spent some time recently with "Little Miss S" and "Little Miss E," ages 3 and 5, respectively. They are the daughters of friends of ours here in the neighborhood who we are working with on some fundraising opportunities for RCS. This Saturday, Brian worked with the girls' daddy on the Playhouse Palooza (the Website may not be up yet) project, and Allen and I brought the guys lunch. It was supposed to be a quick stop, but then the girls made an appearance and we ended up spending the next 2 1/2 hours there. Some highlights ...

Playing in their yard

"Little Miss E" driving one of Allen's cars on his head. Can you say flirt?

Allen test-driving "Little Miss S'" bicycle (also pictured, the girls' Gigi)

"E" also invited Allen to take a nap with her in her bed ... I'm not sure I like that too much .... So anyway, we finally lured him home (too late for his nap) with cupcakes. Here he is eating one ....
I will post pictures of our playhouse at some point, but I don't want to spoil anything so I will wait until they have been officially unveiled.

Looks like we may be skipping over the trike and going directly to a bike with training wheels.

In England they call training wheels "stablizers." I kinda like that. Oh the the things you can learn from Charlie and Lola.

A cupcake works every time. We shared an oversized one with a duck on it last night to celebrate a "good attitude" March. I would recommend the bike versus trike, fwiw.
