Barbie and Ken do Yard Work

Today Barbie noticed that the roof of her house had a lot of pine needles and branches on it from winter storms, so she asked Ken if he could get the broom and sweep it off. Barbie was going to water her flowers.

It took a lot of work to carry the ladder to the front of the house but Ken and his rubbery muscles finally managed to carry it a few feet. Once up on the roof, Ken had trouble managing the broom. It was so huge! And looking down at the ground far below made him dizzy.
Barbie said he was just whining.

But then Barbie had some trouble watering her flowers. She almost fell in the watering can, and Ken had to parachute off the roof and save her. It was very dramatic and Barbie told Ken she wouldn't call him a whiner any more (at least for a while).

Finally when all the flowers were watered and the roof had been swept, they were hot and tired, so they decided to cool off by getting some Bubble Tea. (Stay Tuned for details..)

So glad Ken got the room swept, it needed it! Now if I could just get Barbie to water the plants every day in this heat...
