Blue caterpillers and purple pigs

Sometimes Alani just needs a bit of quiet time to chill... especially when she's past the point of being tired. What to do when you have an exhausted, sobbing child?

The last couple of nights we've been looking out into the backyard, it's not too dark as the neighbor's kitchen light is usually on.

We look for the squirrel, pig, raccoon, various birds and the caterpiller who loves to go down the slide. Sometimes, we can't see a certain creature because he's hiding or has gone into the secret place under the tree. The caterpiller was green the other night, two night ago he was blue. The pig is usually pink, but one night he was purple! She tells me all about the creatures in the backyard - sometimes there's even a black snake who likes pink flowers.

*heart sigh* I am so the besotted auntie.
