Mom and I went down first, then I went back up and came back down a couple times!
|"Here I come, Mom!!! Wheeeee!"|
Mom was cheering me on, with calls of "Go, Maggie, go!" It was great! I tried to get Aunt Cammie to play the game with me ...
|"Chase me, CamCam!"|
"Wait! I need to check something!"
... but she got stalled out on the landing.
I needed to be more persuasive! On my next trip up, I gave her some nudging:
|"Let's GO, Cammie!"|
She wouldn't budge. With Mom's encouragement, I ran up and down a few more times to show Cam how it's done!
|"See, Aunt Cammie?!!? Now c'mon! Chase me!"|
I don't know if I underestimated Cammie's speed, or if there's a slight chance that I was getting a bit tired ... but after I showed Cam how to play the game about 17 times ... well ...
|"Come on, Maggie! Let's race!"|
"Cammie!!! Wait for me!!!"
I got down to the lower deck, raced around, and then before I knew it ...
|"Oh, Maggie!!! Where ARE you, little one?!?"|
Can you see her up there at the landing?!? How did she get past me?!? And why did I feel so tired all of a sudden?!?
Cammie and I went in and got a beverage after that, then I seem to remember napping. And Mom being quite pleased about something. Cammie, too. I have no idea why. I do know that I love playing The Deck Stairs Game, though!
