Squirrely behavior. And nope, I'm not talking about the girls.

Eric planted sunflowers for the girls earlier this summer. The few seeds he planted grew into three enormous sunflowers. Truly, these were the tallest sunflowers I've ever seen.

Today, when the girls and I got home, there was a group of squirrels standing on our driveway near the sunflowers. As we got a little closer I could see they were busily eating something but I couldn't tell quite what it was. Now let me interject here that this time of year the squirrels are a little nutty (pun intended) and are running all over the place, stuffing their faces and squawking at anyone who comes near them. So once we got what they deemed too close, they squawked and yelled and then ran away. That's when I realized they had climbed the sunflowers, had stripped off most of the leaves, had ripped off the few remaining flower petals, had chewed off two of the three heads and were now happily enjoying a sunflower seed feast.

Who knew squirrels could climb sunflowers?

The last photo is of Michal and all the rest are of Kenna. And geez. I guess I need to raise that swing, don't I?
