Sammy has recently shown an interest in climbing just about anything and everything, so I decided to promote this in a somewhat reasonable manner and found him a gently-used climbing/sliding toy on Craigslist. At first Sammy tried rather unsuccessfully to climb up the slide side, but it didn't take him too long to figure out the easiest and fastest way to surmount his new toy.
We weren't the only ones outside enjoying the gorgeous afternoon that day; Sammy and I were soon joined by a black-chinned hummingbird who had just discovered the new feeder that I had hung on the back patio. Captain Husband has decided to name the little guy "Humphrey." (I think Humphrey may actually be a girl, but that's only a minor detail.)
(I wish those clouds were real, but they're actually a texture that I added from an awesome website that I found earlier this week; if you like textures and you like free, you definitely need to check it out!)
