Whats for lunch?

Pour leurs pères:

"Nothing's in the fridge.  You want some frozen dumplings from Costco?"
"Yeah, whatever."

Clara has just mastered walking this week, but doesn't seem willing to rest on her laurels -- she's hellbent on conquering the playground equipment at our local park, where other parents have given her a nickname:  Clar-Devil.  The child tips the scales at just over 16 pounds, but is fearless.  I say she'll be Daddy's little Scuba buddy.  Papá says Daddy will find his regulator line has been cut if he tries.
Here, is this the way up?

No, I think it's this way...
I did it!

Now, through the tunnel

Hey!  Olivia's down there!

Hi Olivia!

Meanwhile, Olivia watches her sister's acrobatics with pause
...makes like a koala, and turns her attention to tasty eucalyptus leaves littering the ground.

Leaps and bounds

Okay, more like steps and falls as Clara lifts off.  This isn't the first time she's walked; it's just the first time she's done it sustained enough for me to get the camera going.  Meanwhile, her sister is content to munch a eucalyptus leaf like a pudgy koala.
