Bedtime Stories with the kids. They loved the movie and best of all they all sat through it.

Notice the girls' purses. They insisted on taking them to the Movies at the York!

EB hamming it up for the camera at Sweet Tomatos
where we met Grandma and Grandpa for lunch.

Mr. Scary with a blue tongue.

with the shaky hand and a razor.

Brookfield Zoo

Fun painting our faces with Peggy and Liam. Tate was a dolphin and
EB was a panda bear who liked pink.
Love their artwork. Look at the house Tate drew with him in the window!

Fun spraying the plants with Liam.

Peggy and EB at the Dolphin Show.

Tate and EB drawing their pictures.

Peggy, Tate and EB. Tate said the sun was too bright and
he was not going to look at me but he would smile.

EB sews a bear!

One of EB's favorite friends just got her tonsils out and we wanted to make her something very special. EB designed and sewed this bear all by herself for her. Isn't it great! We hope she likes it. EB said one of the best presents you can give someone is something that you made because you took time to do it.

Take Me to the Moon

Here are three new Astronauts that were hired today by the Adler Planetarium. I cannot believe now tall Harper has gotten.

The girls getting ready to watch Big Bird's show where he takes you to China.

Some cute videos of going to the moon. Thinking Ellie would love something like this for her sensory breaks!

Meeting Pascal

After the Planetarium we went to the Noonan's house to meet Baby Pascal. Both Ellie and Tate loved holding the baby. Ellie said if she could not get a baby from China she would just take a baby from my tummy -- not!
