Look Flapper. Russ' kiddo Caleb drew you a picture.
"Here, Dad. I spit this out just for you."
Wow! Check THAT photo out, Flapper! I wonder who drew it.
It was Skye. Thanks, Skye! Great drawing!
"Are you keeping french fries in there, Steve?"
"Hey. Hey! Did you hear me ask if you have french fries?"
"Maybe if I tug on your pants you will open the bag."
Skye and Dawn played a little badmitton while Honey & Beaker hung out.
Somehow it's cuter when a duck begs for food than when a dog does. Tough luck, dogs.
"Thank you for the floating rose, Nikki & Brad."
