I have so much to blog. No, seriously.
For instance, did you know that the 4th of July happened? For real! Almost a month and a half ago! The pictures are darling. Or, did you know that Grandma and Grandpa Otto visited last weekend? Great pictures there, too. Would you like to see them? Well TOO BAD, BLOG WORLD. Because what happened in our driveway on a random Sunday afternoon was too cute not to share immediately.
It started innocently enough. Russ very kindly decided to wash our cars. All was going swimmingly until we heard, "Hey, Astrid....!" and turned around to see this...
To those of you not in the know, I spend a lot of time pretending to be Astrid, a fictiional viking from "How to Train Your Dragon." Vivi's alter-ego is Hiccup, and Russ is Toothless. And Hiccup was in to some mischeif, let me tell you what.
And she went all out.
When Astrid-the voice of reason-mentioned to Hiccup that she was making quite a mess, Vivi replied, "That's okay. That's what vikings do."
Then Toothless/Russ decided to get into the act and grabbed a much bigger bucket, the kind usually found in the corners at frat partys, holding giant kegs (yes, we have one in our garage-leave it alone).
It was big enough that they both fit into it.
Not to be outdone, Vivi decided that Russ needed a wash, too.
And that they both looked more like Vikings with bubble beards.
Sometimes, randomness provides my favorite results.
So while I may have been a semi-negligent blogger this summer, rest assured that I have been enjoying the time in the sun with theworld's cutest (and messiest) viking.
