The first really hot day of the summer (okay, late spring) means we just had to get the kiddie pool out for some water play. It didn't take long at all for Olivia and Aaron to get in the spirit of things...

Birthday Song

Aaron sings a song at his party. Nope, not the happy birthday song...

Rub a Dub Dub

Three cousins in a tub. "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "I Am a Pizza" never sounded so good!

Let's Go to the Park

Granddad's birthday weekend was filled with trips to multiple parks, but the kids didn't seem to mind.

Maiden Voyage

Olivia received her very own remote controlled airplane as a gift in the fall from our neighbor Camille (an avid hobbyist). Recently this spring, we had our first opportunity to try it out.

Milwaukee: Betty Brinn Children's Museum

After an overnight stop in Evanston, our family continued on to Milwaukee. Today while Mommy had her conference presentation and activities, Olivia, Aaron and Daddy went to the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in downtown Milwaukee. The kids played there for about 4 or 5 hours. Olivia particularly enjoyed the automobile repair shop area and also had fun appearing on TV. Aaron liked the large train, the golf balls rolling on chutes, and the sand play area.

Darkness There, and Nothing More...

Happy Halloween, everybody! We hosted friends Sharon, Peter, and Nathan for our now-traditional Halloween dinner: black bean chili. The kids were very excited, answering the door several times during the meal to pass out candy to trick-or-treaters who came to our house (several of Olivia's friends paid a visit). In the picture at left, Olivia and Nathan pose in their costumes.
