To The Movies!

 Well, last week was a great week! We've had a lot of nice sunny days to spend outdoors, and... I finally got my baby grand piano!!
 It isn't brand new, but has a lot of family history from both Mark's and my family. It is the piano which Mark's grandmother, and mother, played at church. Then, years ago when we were young, it became my brother's. This was long before Mark and I ever started dating. Now... it is mine!!!!  And though it is a little out of tune I still play it. I love my electric piano, but it could NEVER top the sound of a real piano. I have a feeling it is going to get pretty jealous.

On Saturday Mark went disc golfing with the guys, so we decided to head up to the Dells with Grandma Collins for some shopping and a movie! While waiting for her in the driveway Alysabeth posed by Grandpa's sports car for a pic. It looked like it was just her size! Lol!

Our first stop was the outlet mall for some new sandals. The kids' feet have grown considerably in the past year and are now bursting both front and back in their ones from last year! They loved it! Nathan got a pair that light up, Katie's were pink with flowers, and Alysabeth's were flip-flops with diamonds. They surely fit their personalities. Since we had a little time to spare we stopped for a few rides.

The highlight was definitely the movie. Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D. The best part is that I now have three children who sit so well! I am finally at the point were I can watch an entire movie without spending part of it out waiting in the theater hallway! So nice! Katie even kept her glasses on! I didn't get a photo with the glasses but here she is waiting for the movie to start. I think I surprised her. It was dark and she was unsuspecting.

Lastly, we celebrated another birthday today! My mom's! So here's to the birthday girl! :)

Wasn't she an adorable baby?! Happy Birthday, Mom!

Many Blessings,
