Vamanos!

Introducing Dora's newest friend and faithful companion...

It's - Becca the Explorer! :)

(alternately titled, "How to keep your toddler out of the house and out of the way while the living room - and therefore the rest of the house - is torn apart...")

Surveying the vast wilderness to determine which direction to head first:

Who do we ask for help when we don't know which way to go? Well, let's try this way...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_003

Aha - there it is!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_005

It looks very interesting...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_006

Hmm, must figure out how it works...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_009

Got the hang of it now!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_011

Now what do we have here...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_013

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_012

Ooh, is that what it looks like?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_014

An explorer has to try everything!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_015

Oh look, a strange box... Maybe there's treasure inside?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_017

Yes, we found treasure!

Every explorer needs her trusty Dora ball to play basketball with:

And here's the shot...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_020

And the dunk...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_023

Oh yes - 2 points! :)

So what else can be found in this wonderful box of treasure?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_028

Must. Try. To. Reach...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_026

Well what do we have here?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_027

Oh no - she's an explorer, not a leaf raker! Is there a way to get out of this job... Through here, perhaps?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_025

Yikes - what are these strange beings?

Abby&HannahThroughSlider

Maybe it's time to head elsewhere. Ok, off to explore some more...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_030

What do we have here? If we maybe just scoop up a little bit...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_031

Oh yes, and add to this...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_032

Now what could this be used for?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_036

Somehow I don't think this is quite how it's supposed to work...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_035

Is this right?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_057

Wow - we made it to the play house! Excuse me while I take this call...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_037

Now how does this thing work...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_041

Look - up there - behind you!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_040

Yes, I got rid of them - now what were you saying?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_046

Sorry, but this is a private call...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_042

All done - are you ready for some more exploring?

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_044

Look - I see something!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_048

Let's stop and think. There must be a way to get up this thing...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_049

Well, that didn't work...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_050

We made it to the top!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_052

But now how to get back down...

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_053

Oh this must be the way!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_054

We did it! Lo hicimos!

BeccaTheExplorer-Outside_051


What was your favorite part? I liked that too. See you next time! :)

Expat Mom said...

That is so cute! I think it´s kind of funny because my son likes Dora also, but here, the show is in Spanish, with the occasional English phrase thrown in. :D

Anna said...

I loved this post! Becca is just so adorable, and wow does she have a lot of energy!

MariK said...

Blog hopping and came across your blog. Your baby daughter is simply adorable!! I love her blond hair. I remember when my kids use to go exploring like that and it was just a joy to watch them and take pics. By the way, I also love the colors you picked for your home walls & you are lucky your hubby knows how to paint! Mine tried before and it was kind of a mess. Anyway, I hope you can visit me one day and hope you dont mind if I visit again...by the way, what state do you live in? (im in CA)
