Lake Elizabeth Park

Since it was such a lovely day today, we took Aria to the "big kids" park at Lake Elizabeth this afternoon. Although some of the playground equipment was definitely too difficult for her to manuever though, she did a good job in holding her own with all the other older kids (and boy, was that park crawling with a crowd of older kids today!). She mostly stuck to playing in the sand, crawling through tunnels, and going down the slides (both forward and backward). After about an hour of play, we were all ready to go home to relax (and nap).

Our Little Drummer Girl

Just a few photos to share, but here is Aria improvising on her new "drum" in the kitchen today while I did some dishes.

Happy 70th Birthday Mrs. H!

After months of planning, we had a surprise 70th birthday party for Mrs. H today at the Penders' house in Lincoln. We had a nice crowd gathered from all over and I know that Mrs. H appreciated it.

Even though there was a slight snafu in the timing of the guest of honor's arrival (there was a Buca di Beppo truck parked in the driveway when they arrived), she was sufficiently surprised. Thanks to all who pitched in and made this event such a successful and memorable time!
