Charlie Jump Up (and a three hour lunch)

Charlie's friend Emily stopped by this weekend (along with her parents Rob and Mary) to drop off a couple of toys for Charlie.  Included in the items was this "Johnny Jump Up".  We've been meaning to buy one for quite a while now and we're grateful to be borrowing one instead! 

Charlie hasn't quite figured out what she's supposed to do in it (jump!!) but instead bobs up and down and twirls around.  I've tried raising and lowering the harness, but that hasn't gotten her any closer.  Anyone have any advice?

The good news is that it is much easier to take pictures of her while she is stationary:

Since it was about noon when Emily and her folks stopped by, we decided to head across the street for lunch at our pub.  They have just recently redone their back garden and it is gorgeous!  (I didn't get any pictures while we were there, but I'll be sure to take some next time.)  

Charlotte and Emily had fun playing:

Although things did occasionally get ugly:

Just joking.  :)  They had a lot of fun!  There was a lot of snacking in the high chairs and sitting on the table:

Later, Charlotte played dress-up while Emily slept.  

A great time was had by all!

(By the way, anyone looking for a great band name is welcome to use the title of this blog post:  Charlie Jump Up and the Three Hour Lunch.  Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?)
