Outdoorsy baby

Evelyn played at my parents' house this weekend.  Mom emailed me the first four pictures.  I'm including her descriptions as the photo captions.

We are about to put on her carharts and go feed the chickens.

This is what we get for giving her a puzzle with locks on it. She sees a lock and key and goes to work.
 FACT: Evelyn has been pretty interested in locks and keys for months--even before she got a puzzle that has a lot of fasteners and locks and doors.  It's just that now she's a champion.

Playing in the garden. I couldn't get pictures of her with all of the flowers but she had fun. Turtle is running from her.
 Turtle is a cat.  (Sara named her that because she has a mottled coat that looks like turtle cheesecake.)  Turtle has gotten much friendlier in her old age, but I think she knew what she was doing when she ran away from my little creature.  Read on.

After we gathered eggs, she had a hard time understanding that they were fragile. Murphy had a snack after we practiced being gentle.
This is Murphy:

Murphy, protector of babies and eater of eggs.

 This wasn't Evelyn's first time out at the farm since she learned to walk, but she seemed to have the most fun doing it this weekend.  She climbed up and down stairs, literally ran in circles, and chased various animals.

Mo is obviously fleeing in terror from this growling menace.

Evelyn had a great weekend.  The weather was beautiful, the animals were plentiful, and the playmates were spectacular.  You can tell she had a wonderful time.

I can see why.

I love the look on her face in the picture of her chasing Mo.
