First day of school!

Today was the first day of kindergarten for Alina and first day of preschool for Ania! 

Ania does not much like to smile normally for the camera. :)
There she did...
My baby girl is growing up!
 Waiting for the bus
Getting on the bus - that was fun!
 Getting off the bus at school!
Goodbye hug

I'm going through a milkshake pfase.  Maybe it's not even a pfase but an obsession.  I have been thinking about them since life in the Pfaso.

Some people think their milkshakes are better than mine.  But they are wrong.

My milkshakes have roasted marshmallows.

And liquid nitrogen!

Most have cherries on top!

Colorado Round One

The Welcome Home Party got started right with Costco Pizza, Brussels Sprouts and Brownies. For some reason I don't have any pfotos! I can't do it all, people! The next day, bagels and bacon. Again, I can't do it all. But for lunch, pfeast your eyes on this! Korean BBQ! How can anyone resist? Amazing. One of my pfavorite meals.

Just cruisin' around the car in Aunt Rhoda's shades.


Water World.  Going to have to do that next year along with the US Mint.

And we grilled pizza.  Another great meal.  I love pizza.  I'm having it for dinner tonight, as a matter of fact. :)

I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield and look what we saw!

Pfun on the Pfarm

Is a child's life complete without a visit to central Illinois during the summer? I think not!

And what trip to Illinois is complete without learning a few things about Abe Lincoln?

And what pfamily trip is complete without a picture of people's backs?

And what trip to Illinois is complete without saying hello to the animals on the pfarm?

In time for the Scott County Fair!
