As they say, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

Likes

Gilbert

What happens to the lion?

Likes

Xtreme

It's dressed in the lamb costume.

Likes

Gilbert

That's still scary.

Likes

Top Act. Yes, I like the sound of that. I will set my sights on this badge.

Likes

Xtreme

Good luck, bro. You will need it.

Likes

Swimmington

No luck needed here. My skill will win the day.

Likes

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain.

Likes

Gilbert

Is that a nursery rhyme?

Likes

Swimmington

It's an exercise for practicing your diction.

Likes

Gilbert

Ooh. I like exercise. But I don't care for rain.

Likes

A self-portrait. Oil on canvas.

Likes

Brooke

Wow, that's really good.

Likes

Swimmington

Thank you.

Likes

Xtreme

I don't know. I like you better covered in paint.

Likes

Swimmington

Very funny, brother.

Likes

Today feels like the perfect day for a crisp winter hike.

Likes

Finn

I've got my hiking stick.

Likes

Brooke

I've got my hiking pack.

Likes

Gilbert

I've got my um...hiking...pillow. I don't hike much.

Likes

Groundhog Day is almost here. What do the fates have in store?

Likes

Gilbert

6 more weeks of winter is okay. I like winter. Snowmen, getting cozy...ooh, and sledding.

Likes

Gilbert

Although spring is pretty great, too. Flowers, birds, baseball...

Likes

Gilbert

Summer is my favorite, though. Sunshine, longer days...what were we talking about?

Likes

Of all the indignities.

Likes

Coral

Couldn't have pulled it off without you!

Likes

GILBERT!!!

Likes

Gilbert

Oops.

Likes

Xtreme

XTREME close-up. I like it.

Likes

Coral

Your eye really stands out in that picture.

Likes

Gilbert

Aw, thanks.

Likes

Last night I had a dream…

Likes

Gilbert

Was I in it?

Likes

Finn

Were you flying?

Likes

Xtreme

Were you being chased by angry blobs?

Likes

Swimmington

No, I dreamt that I was sound asleep with no interruptions. How glorious!

Likes

Xtreme

Angry blobs would have been cooler.

Likes

Spring is in the air. A season for new beginnings.

Likes

Coral

And pretty flowers.

Likes

Brooke

And great smells!

Likes

Xtreme

Plus rain. And thunder!

Likes

Gilbert

Thunder!? Go back to the pretty flowers.

Likes

It appears Fuzzy Face needs some pointers on puzzle-building.

Likes

Brooke

Yeah, more putting together and less ripping apart would be good.

Likes

Coral

He gets a little excited.

Likes

Swimmington

It's a puzzle. Who wouldn't be excited?

Likes

Xtreme

<- this dude.

Likes

Happy birthday William Shakespeare!

Likes

Gilbert

Ooh! How old is he?

Likes

Swimmington

Well, he was born in 1564, so that would have made him 448.

Likes

Gilbert

Wow. We better get him something good.

Likes

Time for a little round of golf. Fore!!!

Likes

Finn

Five!!!

Likes

Xtreme

Six!!!

Likes

Swimmington

Fore, not four!! It's a golfing term...

Likes

Gilbert

Seven!!! Am I too late?

Likes

Swimmington

Sigh.

Likes

Off to do some bird watching. Today, I hope to spot the elusive Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

Likes

Coral

Sapsucker. Ew.

Likes

Brooke

Sounds like a beautiful creature to me.

Likes

Swimmington

It is indeed. You should tag along.

Likes

Brooke

Count me in.

Likes

Another April Fool's Day comes to an end. Thank goodness. Such silliness.

Likes

Xtreme

You might want to double check your bed tonight...

Likes

Swimmington

You better be joking, brother.

Likes

Xtreme

Ha ha. We shall see.

Likes

Paris. The city of lights. Oh, how I miss it sometimes.

Likes

Brooke

Il est très beau

Likes

Gilbert

Huh?

Likes

Brooke

It means "it is very beautiful" in French.

Likes

Swimmington

Impressive.

Likes

Brooke

Merci.

Likes

Hats off to a memorable 2011!

Likes

Xtreme

Also known as the "Year of XTREME."

Likes

Swimmington

Year of XTREME? I'm afraid I've never heard it called that.

Likes

Xtreme

You just did.

Likes

Well, it took some doing, but I've earned my Dodge Boss. Who has the last laugh now?

Likes

Xtreme

Look out! Splat.

Likes

Swimmington

Not this time, brother.

Likes

Tennis anyone?

Likes

Brooke

FINN and I will play doubles. Do you have a partner?

Likes

Coral

I'll play.

Likes

Swimmington

Looks like we accept your challenge.

Likes

I'm planning a reading of some of my favorite classics later this month.

Likes

Xtreme

Zzzzzzz…snooze.

Likes

Swimmington

You could learn a thing or two, brother.

Likes

Brooke

I'll be there!

Likes

Gilbert

Me, too!

Likes

I am a Film Fanatic, and I have the badge to prove it!

Likes

Coral

Good job!

Likes

Swimmington

Why thank you. I quite enjoy the cinema.

Likes

Gilbert

What's the cinema?

Likes

I already finished all of my summer reading.

Likes

Brooke

There's plenty of time for more!

Likes

Swimmington

I could start on my fall reading.

Likes

Xtreme

Or, you could cause some mayhem.

Likes

Swimmington

Or that.

Likes

Coral

Yes, that!

Likes

Look at what ol' SWIMMINGTON just picked up.

Likes

Gilbert

Getting good with the jetpack I see!

Likes

Xtreme

No power-ups needed. Awesome!

Likes

Hmmm. What should I do while everyone else is exploring the backyard?

Likes

Brooke

Practice your basketball moves?

Likes

Coral

You could exercise your singing voice.

Likes

Finn

I thought you enjoyed quiet time?

Likes

Swimmington

That's 100% true. I just want to use mine wisely.

Likes

Why do golfers carry extra socks?

Likes

Xtreme

Why?

Likes

Swimmington

In case they get a hole in one.

Likes

Xtreme

Haha. Fore!!

Likes

It looks like someone found buried treasure.

Likes

Brooke

You're rich!

Likes

Xtreme

You mean, we're rich?

Likes

Finn

Don't spend it all in one place.

Likes

Coral

We won't. 

Likes

Finally, a kingly figure to help you figure out the backyard.

Likes

Brooke

He wasn't the wisest of wise men.

Likes

Gilbert

His heart was in the right place.

Likes

Finn

Unfortunately, his castle was in the sand.

Likes

Xtreme

Smash!

Likes

I hope everyone had a fun Father's Day.

Likes

Gilbert

Dads deserve a big thank you.

Likes

Xtreme

Good job, dads. You're doing great.

Likes

Brooke

All dads deserve a big hug.

Likes

Coral

Hugs all around.

Likes

Could you guys have made a bigger splash?

Likes

Finn

We tried to keep it reasonable.

Likes

Xtreme

Not me. Cannonball!

Likes

Gilbert

I have water on me.

Likes

Swimmington

Shake it off, GILBERT.

Likes

I've been getting a lot of reading done while you guys are in the backyard adventuring.

Likes

Brooke

What kind of books are you reading?

Likes

Swimmington

Well, in honor of the expedition, I've started reading biographies of great explorers.

Likes

Finn

Like Roald Amundsen?

Likes

Brooke

Who's that?

Likes

Finn

He discovered the South Pole!

Likes

Xtreme

Cool!

Likes

Swimmington

Literally!

Likes

I'm getting into using my mobile device-thingy.

Likes

Finn

Awesome! Check out the PlayPicker!

Likes

Coral

We're headed outside to play some games now.

Likes

Gilbert

I vote for Ring Zing!

Likes

Swimmington

Ok, how do I turn this on again?

Likes

Xtreme

Haha.

Likes

Remember the launch?

Likes

Xtreme

How could we forget?

Likes

Gilbert

I'm still a little shaken up.

Likes

Swimmington

You were right on target.

Likes

Brooke

What were you aiming at?

Likes

Swimmington

Adventure!

Likes

I was matching and organizing socks when suddenly...

Likes

Xtreme

From whatever to awesome!

Likes

Swimmington

I'm a domestic creature, but I couldn't resist a little Sock Boarding.

Likes

Coral

Sometime you've just got to do a backflip.

Likes

Gilbert

So true.

Likes

On average, the Atlantic Ocean is the saltiest of Earth's major oceans. [Source]

Likes

Xtreme

Salty - even for an ocean.

Likes

Brooke

The more salt, the better things float!

Likes

Finn

So the Atlantic is also the floatiest ocean?

Likes

Brooke

I don't think that's a real word.

Likes

A history joke. How did the Vikings send secret messages?

Likes

Brooke

How?

Likes

Swimmington

By norse code!

Likes

Finn

Ah, Nordic humor. Buuuurrrrr.

Likes

Five days went by fast! 

Likes

Gilbert

Did it go by fast because you were having so much fun?

Likes

Xtreme

Fast is fast, no matter how fun it is.

Likes

Guess which historical figures I admire?

Likes

Finn

Plato?

Likes

Swimmington

Too old. 

Likes

Brooke

Napoleon?

Likes

Swimmington

Too short.

Likes

Gilbert

Michelangelo.

Likes

Swimmington

Just right! An artist whose style I continue to appreciate.

Likes

Who knows how to throw one of these? 

Likes

Xtreme

Piece of cake!

Likes

Finn

With the right moves, you can make it float on air!

Likes

Coral

Go long, SWIMMINGTON!

Likes

Swimmington

Oh dear! 

Likes

Still getting the hang of this thing!

Likes

Brooke

It's easy. Just float. 

Likes

Xtreme

Here's a tip, bro: stay low and then fire up when you need to. 

Likes

Swimmington

I see. I will master this soon enough.

Likes

I'm clearing my email inbox.

Likes

Brooke

Running out of space?

Likes

Swimmington

Yes. My correspondences are long and numerous.

Likes

Finn

Way to share the knowledge with friends! 

Likes

Swimmington

I just try to keep up with my public.

Likes

Where could GILBERT have gone to? Can you hear me GILBERT?

Likes

Finn

He's definitely missing. And probably still lost in the maze.

Likes

Swimmington

It's our duty to find him!

Likes

Xtreme

Right on!

Likes

Brooke

Let's go! 

Likes

Who wants to help me clean up after the Talent Show?

Likes

Gilbert

Um, I'm busy practicing guitar.

Likes

Brooke

I haven't heard any noise…

Likes

Xtreme

Maybe he was practicing air guitar.

Likes

What new things will you guys discover in the backyard?

Likes

Xtreme

New kinds of sports!

Likes

Finn

New friends!

Likes

Brooke

New animals!

Likes

Coral

Cute ones I hope!

Likes

While writing my novel, I noticed you were all characters.

Likes

Brooke

Um, thanks?

Likes

Finn

We certainly have great personalities.

Likes

Coral

I hope you treat us well.

Likes

Swimmington

You're all a big part of the plot.

Likes

A good hike is a splendid idea. 

Likes

Gilbert

I'll go, but no snakes…

Likes

Xtreme

Sounds like no fun.

Likes

Gilbert

Maybe baby snakes. That are sleeping.

Likes

Xtreme

I'll grab my gear.

Likes

I always wanted to start a small business. Any ideas?

Likes

Brooke

Under the Bed arts and crafts?

Likes

Swimmington

Interesting.

Likes

Finn

Under the Bed tours!

Likes

Swimmington

I do enjoy sharing knowledge.

Likes

Once upon a time in an ancient kingdom …

Likes

Brooke

…there was a knight and his loyal horse…

Likes

Finn

…who rode to save a maiden…

Likes

Gilbert

…from a scary dragon…

Likes

Xtreme

…with blue flames and laser teeth…

Likes

Coral

…who disliked fairy tales.

Likes

Swimmington

Ha!

Likes

Clearly, my timing is impeccable.

Likes

Finn

Timing is everything.

Likes

Xtreme

No, speed is everything.

Likes

Gilbert

And friends.

Likes

Brooke

Speedy friends who are always on time.

Likes

Finn

Yup, that's everything.

Likes

What should you always bring when you're going to the great outdoors?

Likes

Finn

Water?

Likes

Xtreme

Some people would say a compass… not me!

Likes

Gilbert

Good shoes.

Likes

Swimmington

A sense of adventure!

Likes

The Blue Whale is the biggest animal in the world. 

Likes

Xtreme

Why are they so big?

Likes

Finn

Cool.

Likes

Brooke

Big oceans need big whales in them. Maybe from eating so many little fish?

Likes

Swimmington

I'll buy that.

Likes

Knock, knock!

Likes

Finn

Who's there?

Likes

Swimmington

Lettuce!

Likes

Brooke

Lettuce who?

Likes

Swimmington

Lettuce in! It's freezing out here!

Likes

Coral

But we're inside.

Likes

Swimmington

Oh. Right.

Likes

I didn't know Dwyane Wade was a golfer.

Likes

Finn

He's got all kinds of skills.

Likes

Swimmington

Ah, I see. A renaissance man like myself.

Likes

If you wrote a book, what would the first line of your book be?

Likes

Finn

"First, I'd like to thank my friends."

Likes

Brooke

Awwwww. How sweet.

Likes

Gilbert

I'd start "Once upon a time…"

Likes

Xtreme

"My story begins in outer space…"

Likes

Coral

Excited to find out what happens next, XTREME.

Likes

Spooky things are in the night.

Likes

Brooke

Ghoulish ghouls that scare and fright.

Likes

Swimmington

Ahh, a Halloween poem. Who will take the next line?

Likes

Gilbert

Ghost and goblins…this is getting too scary. I need to leave now.

Likes

I do make quite an entrance.

Likes

Finn

Hard to argue with that.

Likes

Brooke

It was unforgettable.

Likes

Xtreme

What? I don't remember.

Likes

CORAL, what kind of tea do the bunnies prefer? 

Likes

Coral

Oh they don't drink tea, they just sniff at the cups.

Likes

Swimmington

Ah, of course. 

Likes

Coral

They do enjoy the stuffed carrots.

Likes

Swimmington

Who doesn't?

Likes

You guys sure have met a lot of fascinating characters lately!

Likes

Brooke

Ahh, the shark!

Likes

Gilbert

And the floating doll.

Likes

Xtreme

Don't forget King Neptune!

Likes

Finn

Not to mention all his loyal subjects.

Likes

This little guy really kept the joust moving.

Likes

Brooke

I'm glad he wasn't scared.

Likes

Finn

If he was scared, he would have gone into a shell.

Likes

Xtreme

It proves he's fearless. I want him on my team.

Likes

Who would like to read aloud? 

Likes

Finn

I'll use my cool British accent!

Likes

Swimmington

Fortunately, we're reading a book by Charles Dickens.

Likes

Brooke

Oh, this will be fun. Where do we start?

Likes

Swimmington

Chapter one!

Likes

This summer, I've been painting my favorite clouds.

Likes

Brooke

Are you noticing any patterns?

Likes

Swimmington

Most of them are puffy.

Likes

Finn

No thunderclouds?

Likes

Swimmington

I worry about rain getting in my oil paints.

Likes

Congratulations on making it home. Although, I was enjoying the peace and quiet…

Likes

Brooke

Yeah right. You totally missed us.

Likes

Xtreme

Hey! I brought you a beret.

Likes

Swimmington

Which looks smashing I might add.

Likes

March-in like a lion, out like a lamb. We should be expecting the lamb soon.

Likes

Brooke

What'll happen to the lion?

Likes

Xtreme

He could sleep in GILBERT's bed.

Likes

Gilbert

I just put up a "no lions allowed" sign.

Likes

All the world's a stage.

Likes

Brooke

Oh, that's nice. I like that.

Likes

Swimmington

It's Shakespeare. You have good taste.

Likes

I dug this picture up from some of my earlier travels. Ahh, great memories.

Likes

Brooke

Great pic. Italy is beautiful.

Likes

Swimmington

I miss it so.

Likes

Finn

Look out! That building is about to fall on you!

Likes

Swimmington

Very funny.

Likes

I'm not usually one for rock 'n' roll, but I must admit I'm hooked on Rock Star Challenge.

Likes

Finn

Are you becoming a rocker? Hehe.

Likes

Swimmington

And what may I ask is a rocker?

Likes

Gilbert

Someone who really knows how to rock out!

Likes

Swimmington

I see.

Likes

What's the hardest part about building a real ship in a bottle?

Likes

Brooke

What?

Likes

Swimmington

Finding a huge bottle.

Likes

Coral

Haha.

Likes

Ahhh the park. Dwyane Wade you are so right, my friend.

Likes

Xtreme

Totally! Freeze tag, football, karate practice…

Likes

Swimmington

I was thinking it's the perfect place for a good book.

Likes

Xtreme

You're killing the momentum here, bro.

Likes

Golfing season has long passed. But indoor golf…that's a different story.

Likes

Finn

I'll grab my clubs.

Likes

Brooke

Count me in.

Likes

Swimmington

Meet you at hole #1.

Likes

Knock, knock!

Likes

Brooke

Who's there?

Likes

Swimmington

Owls say.

Likes

Brooke

Owls say who?

Likes

Swimmington

Precisely.

Likes

Brooke

Huh? Oh. Hehe.

Likes

Swimmington

You mean hoo hoo!

Likes

How did the lawn smell you guys? Freshly cut?

Likes

Gilbert

So fresh! It was wild!

Likes

Xtreme

And it all was cut so fast!

Likes

Brooke

We started in a forest and ended up on a lawn.

Likes

Finn

I still have grass clippings on me.

Likes

Where could GILBERT have gone to? Can you hear me GILBERT?

Likes

Finn

Hmmm, he's totally missing.

Likes

Xtreme

Where did that little dude go?

Likes

Brooke

Uh oh guys. I think he's this way. 

Likes

Coral

Into the maze we go!

Likes

While animals prepare for winter, I prepare for the library.

Likes

Coral

What's the best way to prepare for the library?

Likes

Swimmington

Oh, I just dust the books.

Likes

Xtreme

Do you hoard books, like a squirrel that hoards nuts?

Likes

Swimmington

No. Not unless I'm making a book fort.

Likes

Waiting for an opportunity to wear my monocle.

Likes

Coral

What's a monocle?

Likes

Gilbert

Half of a pair of glasses.

Likes

Finn

So you can see half of everything.

Likes

Xtreme

Which half?

Likes

Brooke

The funny half!

Likes

Today I'm celebrating the contribution of trees.

Likes

Finn

How are you celebrating exactly?

Likes

Swimmington

I've found some chopsticks and I sing to them.

Likes

Brooke

You are one of a kind, SWIMMINGTON.

Likes

Swimmington

Why, thank you.

Likes

This week I'll begin writing my memoir.

Likes

Gilbert

What's a memoir?

Likes

Brooke

It's a book about a person's life, written by that person.

Likes

Gilbert

What part of your life will you write about?

Likes

Xtreme

The boring part, probably.

Likes

Swimmington

Ha! Every day has been an adventure, brother!

Likes

The Ring Master. That might be a fitting title for me when it comes to this place.

Likes

Xtreme

Hey, what are you trying to say?

Likes

Swimmington

Well, it can be quite a circus at times.

Likes

Gilbert

I like the circus.

Likes

Brooke

Me too.

Likes

Xtreme

We need some elephants around here.

Likes

Gilbert

We might need a bigger bed for that.

Likes

Shall I begin writing an official history of Under The Bed?

Likes

Finn

Begin at the beginning.

Likes

Coral

Make sure you get the parts about me right!

Likes

Swimmington

CORAL, I'll need to interview you.

Likes

Coral

Ask away. I'm an open book.

Likes

Remember GILBERT's first "pogo stick"?

Likes

Finn

I remember.

Likes

Gilbert

What's up guys? Oh? My first pogo stick? Ah the memories.

Likes

Swimmington

Do you remember breaking your own record?

Likes

Gilbert

I remember being stuck and then falling over.

Likes

I've played quite a few games recently.

Likes

Finn

Ten games, nice.

Likes

Gilbert

As you would say SWIMMINGTON, very respectable.

Likes

I'm taking up photography.

Likes

Brooke

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Likes

Xtreme

Then prepare for the words to flow!

Likes

I'm stepping down as the president of our picture book club. Shall we elect a new leader?

Likes

Brooke

Yes! Let's have campaigns and an election!

Likes

Swimmington

Who will speak first?

Likes

Gilbert

I nominate BROOKE.

Likes

Brooke

I accept.

Likes

I'm off to listen to my collection of vinyl recordings.

Likes

Gilbert

What's vinyl?

Likes

Swimmington

An old-fashioned way to play recorded music. It's a plastic disc with grooves that are read by a needle.

Likes

Xtreme

Whoa! That sounds like real ancient technology!

Likes

Gilbert

Do you have any rock albums?

Likes

Swimmington

Rock music? I should say not!

Likes

I'm learning to speak French. Who wants to practice?

Likes

Gilbert

Bonjour!

Likes

Swimmington

Ah yes! That means hello.

Likes

Gilbert

I can speak French!

Likes

I'd like to lead another nature expedition soon!

Likes

Brooke

It was great learning about plants and animals.

Likes

Gilbert

Next time it can be outside.

Likes

Swimmington

I'm used to speaking in front of diagrams.

Likes

Brooke

Yes, but we want a field trip.

Likes

Xtreme

Yeah.

Likes

Swimmington

I will start preparing now then!

Likes

I just earned this badge.

Likes

Finn

I always knew you had it in you.

Likes

Swimmington

I'm quite the maestro, when I want to be.

Likes

I enjoy strolls Under the Bed on crisp fall days.

Likes

Brooke

I enjoy sunsets Under the Bed.

Likes

Gilbert

Me too, as long as it doesn't get too bright for my eyes.

Likes

Swimmington

Try sunglasses.

Likes

I consider myself a stern, yet fair judge of talent. I expect impressive performances.

Likes

Xtreme

You better give me a high score, dude.

Likes

Swimmington

I do not play favorites, brother.

Likes

Found an old bookshelf and some classics.

Likes

Brooke

Oh! Which ones?

Likes

Swimmington

I will not tell. But, I plan to go through them shortly, if you'd like to join.

Likes

Brooke

Mysterious. Fine, you have my curiosity. See you soon.

Likes

Did you know Leonardo Da Vinci invented a wide variety of things - from musical instruments to flying machines? [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci]

Likes

Coral

Did any of his flying machines actually fly?

Likes

Gilbert

They flew straight out of his imagination.

Likes

Swimmington

And right into the history books! He was a truly creative mind.

Likes

Ahh. Time for some peace and quiet.

Likes

Xtreme

We can't have that. I'll be right over.

Likes

Swimmington

I'm warning you, brother.

Likes

Xtreme

;)

Likes

1 + 1 = ?

Likes

Gilbert

A pair.

Likes

Brooke

"2" is the right answer I believe.

Likes

Coral

Two? That makes a cute couple!

Likes

School is back in session. What are you favorite subjects?

 

Likes

Finn

Math. Gotta love the logic of numbers. 

Likes

Brooke

Science!

Likes

Finn

P.E. and History.

Likes

Xtreme

Does recess count?

Likes

Swimmington

I suppose…

Likes

I'm going to read the classics this summer. Charles Dickens is a favorite.

 

Likes

Brooke

What are his books like?

Likes

Swimmington

The scenes are dark but the characters are so alive!

Likes

Gilbert

He's written a lot of books. Which one should I start with?

Likes

Swimmington

Great Expectations is my favorite.
