    We had never met Liliana, and I don't think Leo remembered us (even though he said he did) :brow

    One of the reasons for making it to Flagstaff early in the day was so we would have time to... sew a tear in one of the chairs... Leo helped:

    The kids kept the fire stoked:

    "Hey kids, don't you think Aunt Francine will love it if Blueberry had some stickers?"

    "Yeah!" "Yeah!"

    "Shhh. it'll be a surprise"

    "OK! Shhh."

    [​IMG]

    "Oh, she's gonna like this... let's do more!"

    [​IMG]

    "Which is your favorite, Lilliana?"

    [​IMG]

    Not quite as good a prank as when a co-worker brought her kids into the office and I had them schmear hand lotion on all the doorknobs. :brow But still pretty good.

    re-install the air filters. First, hold them in the sun, Leo to make sure they're dry.

    "How much longer???"

    "About a half hour."

    :eek1 :(:

    "Just kidding! :lol2"

    [​IMG]

    They're starting to understand Uncle David's warped sense of humor. :wink:

    It's time to ride the bikes over to the storage, and drain the gas / carbs.

    "Can I ride the motorcycle?"

    Uh oh. "I don't think so, you don't know how."

    "But I know how to start it; press the red button and twist the handle."

    :scratch

    "Um... you don't have a helmet."

    "But I do. A red one. I'll get it."

    Hmmm.

    "Here, see."

    "I don't think you can ride it, you can start it again, but I think you're too short."

    "No I'm not! :cry"

    "OK, ok. I'll tell you what. We'll put you on the bike, and if you can reach the pedals you can ride it. We'll try Blueberry 'cause that's shorter already. How does that sound?" :dunno

    "All right."

    "Leo."

    "What?"

    "I don't think your feet reach the pedals. Let me try to stretch your leg. Nope. Doesn't reach. Sorry."

    [​IMG]

    "But you can help me back it out of the driveway :nod."
