Sunday with Chloe in the Backyard

We stayed home this weekend. We have another big trip planned in a couple of weeks, so we thought it would be a good time to rest up. Pearl is a little under the weather, so she preferred to stay inside and color while Chloe wanted to play outside.

We built a giant chess board in our backyard and ordered hand-carved teak pieces from Indonesia. Unfortunately, a few of the pieces were stolen, so we just kind of leave it in the yard as a decaying sculptural element. Maybe someday we will try this again when the girls are old enough to play chess. Here is Chloe telling me the names of the pieces.
