And one more video of her walking on her birthday. She is improving every day. It is fun to see how proud she is of this new found skill!
A little, Jump Up and Shout...
And, I took this one all by myself! Can you tell???

David and Emily had a ball going in and out of all the bouncy castles but after a few hours we were ready to move on to the next adventure. Chris thought the kids would enjoy dessert at Baker Street Pub. To access the bathrooms, you have to push through a secret door that looks like an ordinary bookcase. The kids thought this was very cool. Here they are showing the secret passage way to the loo.
The kids got chocolate cake with ice cream... yes, that made them happy. Chris and I split an apple cobbler and he had a few beers since it was conveniently happy hour. Emily saw a couple of girls playing darts and was fascinated... they were nice enough to let her watch and even throw a couple. I suppose most everything is interesting when you are 5!
The next order of business was to check out the Water Street fountains. This is my favorite family activity. We stayed for a few songs and watched the dancing fountains. I was happy to hear the Kermit the Frog song, Rainbow Connection. Unfortunately, it wasn't dark yet so we didn't get to see the fountains in all their glory. It is very magical seeing them at night with all the colored lights. Here is David checking it out:
We ended the day with a quick trip inside Hubbel and Hudson, the very fancy grocery store on Water Street. The kids like to sample the produce and see the lobster tank. Mom and Dad like the sausage and the wine. We got them some Valentines candy to appease them... so easy.
Emily and I taught faith formation on Sunday and she had her girl scout meeting in the afternoon. She is now a Daisy. I think she will enjoy it. The girls planted some seeds and we are hoping they will grow. We went to the Life Teen mass at 6pm - singing church as Emily says. It is always very enjoyable and Emily really does love the music
Poor little Lia was running a fever on Sunday but seemed to be doing much better today. You can't tell she was feeling bad for all the laughing in this little video I took at lunch. It is a little dark but the laughing is was what I wanted to capture.
Chris had to go back into the office tonight after we got the kids to bed. It has enabled me to log my updates but now I am very tired!
