Adventures & NiteTime Antics

Maggie and Boomer ventured out many times overnight. Each practiced jumping from porch to roof. Boomer is building his confidence up with his footing. He is becoming a real pro like Maggie. He negotiated the turn to Bindi’s corner without stumbling. Way to go Boomer!
 Maggie was seen stage diving from the top of the roof to the playground twice. Guess she is practicing for a mosh pit when she’s old enough to go to her 1st concert. 1st time she landed on the 2nd solid square and continued her journey out of camera view beyond BEV cam once again. 2nd time she jumped, it was after Boom and BEV cams switch off so only guessing she landed in the same area. Proud to stay she hit her mark. Syd made an appearance twice overnight to check on the kids and give words of encouragement. Again keep in mind with Maggie being out of view Syd maybe feeding her off camera.

What a way to end the night. 
Hope you all enjoyed the show !!
