Waiting, waiting...

Simon patiently waits for his turn on the bunny trampoline (formerly known as our couch).
On that note, hopefully your wait for a fun weekend isn't as long.  Have a great one and we'll be back on Monday!

Looks can be deceiving.

River isn't really a bunny...
She's a kitten in disguise!
That's all I can conclude after seeing her perpetual love of high places and jumping down from them.  Seriously, what other animal does this?

Simon doesn't get the concept of personal space.

I told you I could fit!
River looks a bit annoyed with Simon's attempts to occupy the same space at the same time.  I'm honestly amazed that he hasn't fallen sideways through the hole in the cardboard box.  He has good balance!

If you lick it, it's yours.

River seems to have claimed my apron with the acorns on it for herself.  I'm not quite sure if she realizes that the acorns aren't real, considering that this pic is of her licking one.

Bunny love.

I think this is one of my favorite pics of these two.  When I saw them like this, I went into bunny cuteness overload and made a sound that should only come from a tween girl at a boy band concert.  Not one of my proudest moments.  I still got the pic, though!

Ewww River!

Told you I could touch my nose with my tongue!
River hasn't quite learned that just because you can do something, it doesn't mean you should.  Even Simon looks grossed out.
This started out as a cute pic of Simon resting his head on top of River's while they both looked out the bunny condo door.  It devolved rapidly into this within the split second it took me to press the button on my camera.  Oh well, I did get a chuckle out of it so I thought I'd post it anyway.
On that note, hope you all have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

Don't look.

Seriously, you don't want to know what stupid things the humans are doing right now.
Ever the overprotective big brother.

What's that?!

Well, something has caught their attention.  Maybe the relative peace and quiet of our living room has set their bunny senses tingling.  It's been 5 whole minutes since one of them has been scolded for something.  Yep, definitely can't have that!  They're two buns on a mission to cause mischief wherever they go!

That's not gonna work.

Simon discovers that two bunnies will not fit in a kleenex box.

We had a dream...

And then you woke us up from our nap.
In all seriousness, bunnies don't hate other bunnies based on the color of their that respect, some humans could learn a lot from them.

How does she make this look so easy?!

Poor Simon was trying to hop up onto the back of the couch like he's seen River do countless times.  Apparently this is not as easy as it looks.
This reminds me of myself in high school attempting to do a pull-up, which became thereafter known as a "dangle and drop" for those of us with no upper body strength.  Simon met with equal success in this endeavor.
After a minute or two of monumental effort to pull/climb to the top, he gave up and slid down onto his rump on the couch.  Pride wounded, he came over to me to be set on the ground again and then went under the dining table and flopped down with his back to us.  After a noogie and a few oats, he was his usual happy-go-lucky self again.
I'm sure he'll be back at it tomorrow and will eventually make it to the top of the couch.  Fall seven times, stand up eight.
Hope you all have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

I got tag-teamed by bunnies again!

The night is dark and full of bunnies.
This is what happens when I forget that River has taken a liking to going behind the loveseat.  She actually made it the length of the entire windowsill by the time I realized she was missing.
I kept trying to herd her out with my arm behind the loveseat and the flash of the camera.  Unlike her usual self, she actually tried to nose bonk the camera out of her way so she could explore the far end of the windowsill.
Oh yeah, and while I was shoulder deep with both arms behind the loveseat...
What's that I feel on my legs?!
Why it's Simon acting as a distraction for his sister by walking back and forth across my ankles!
That made it way more difficult to dislodge River from the windowsill without inadvertently knocking Simon off the loveseat.  You can already see the red pillow I knocked down in my attempt to extricate River.
Nothing is ever simple if it can be complicated.
After about 5 minutes, I finally managed to get River out from behind there.  This little picture of innocence is not all it appears to be (as I later found out).
What is actually going on:
River:  I totally got to the end of the windowsill before she noticed I was gone!  Your impromptu distraction worked really well, but next time I need you to be farther away from the couch so she'll have to decide which of us to scold first.
Simon:  I can do that!  What did you have in mind?
River:  Oh, I don't about something life-threatening?
Simon:  Okay!
Not 5 minutes after the last picture I swear that they both ran in opposite directions in a coordinated tag-team maneuver.
River boomeranged back to the windowsill while Simon bolted over to the power outlet and tried to either bite my computer cord or lick the socket (not sure which).  At least he isn't the deaf one of the two because I yelled, "NO, SIMON!!!" as I was running across the living room to him.  Thankfully, he stopped in his tracks and the pic here is him sliding down the wall away from the outlet.  Total guilty face.
Meanwhile, back at the windowsill...
Is that a look of triumph I detect?  At least I had the box blockade this time.
River appears to have claimed the windowsill and all surrounding lands as her personal territory.  The width of the windowsill fits her fluffy little butt perfectly and she is reluctant to be dethroned.  She's giving me this 'So there!' expression.
At this point, I figured that she needed a slight attitude readjustment.  Through the clever use of thumbs, River found herself back in her cage and that playtime was over for the evening.

Simon then and now (they grow up so fast).

What a difference 10 months can make!  The first pic is when he was about 3 months old.  He's now fully grown and can see over the top of the bunny condo without much trouble.

Accidents happen.

It's okay Simon!  This is why we have car insurance.  The important thing is that you're okay--we can get the dump truck fixed then re-load the cargo and things will be good as new.  Promise.

Look at meeeee!

Well, I was trying to capture a pic of River running back and forth across the couch when Simon vaulted into the shot.  I love the ears--it makes him look so focused!  He's quite the little photobomber, isn't he?

Our furry little explorer.

River discovered how to get behind the loveseat.  Here she is finding out that the way is shut.
To give you an idea of scale, the window sill is only 5 inches (12.7cm) wide, but it's 4 1/2 feet (137.16cm) long.  You can understand my concern with her getting back there and me trying to retrieve this intrepid furry explorer.  I had to drag her back out the first time and just barely managed to reach her.
Well, clearly the road closure was the Christmas cactus' fault.  It was taught a lesson by being tipped over. 
Don't worry, no harm came to the bunny or the plant (it only lost a few flower buds)--this type of cactus has no spines even though it looks pointy.  I later had to re-locate it so River wouldn't try to molest it further.
This is River's 'I'll be back' look.  She doesn't seem to get that even if I store some of their toys in the box under the sill, that doesn't mean that that makes it their territory.
She is nothing if not persistent.  If the direct approach won't work, try from the arm of the loveseat.  My hand is there to prevent her from jumping down onto the sill because she would do that in a heartbeat if given half a chance.  No fear in this one!
Clearly, an aerial assault would be the way to go in this case.  She's like a furry little boomerang!  This is when she was scooped up and playtime was officially over for the day.

Thank you to everyone who has visited this blog!  We hit 50,000 all time page views earlier this week, which just gives me the warm and fuzzies that you like us enough to keep coming back. :)
Have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

River's modeling career is taking off...

Hot off of the production lines of Cincinnati and Toronto, River is modeling the Puffs winter line of boxes!  No fashion-forward bunny should be without this incredible garment.  Perfect for lounging around the house in style...
And easily converts to a trendy backless ensemble perfect for a night out on the town!  Everybunny wishes they looked so good.  Pick up yours today at your local grocery store!
I'm not making a dime off of this, so don't sue me people of Puffs (which is probably a registered trademark of something or other)!

Simon and Simon.

Once Simon realized that the flashing lights and the beeping wouldn't hurt him, he tried to make off with one of my Christmas presents.  Here he is pushing it across the floor while trying to press the buttons.
I'm pretty sure it was red-yellow-blue-green-blue and not red-yellow-blue-blue-green.
Yep, the bunnies stole my toy.

What did I do?!

It was the late pellets, wasn't it?
I get bunny butt from River and bunny tongue from Simon as they show their disapproval of my poor pellet punctuality.

Decisions, decisions...

This is the look Simon gives me when he wants down from the couch but is too afraid to hop down on his own and doesn't want to be picked up to be set on the ground.  He doesn't seem to get that there isn't a third option here.
Hopefully your decision on what to do with your weekend comes easier than Simon's does here.  Have a great one and we'll be back on Monday!

Hair of the bun that thumped you.

Sorry for the late post.  The bunnies overindulged in their first adult New Year's celebration.  River had one too many banana daiquiris and Simon discovered tequila.  Never again, he says.
We'll be back tomorrow with an actual post with non-hungover bunnies.
