Devil's Lake

Yesterday we took the kids to Devil's Lake up at Baraboo--tried our best to wear them out. Since the boys fell asleep on the way home, I guess we were sucessful!

First Communion

Yes, yesterday was the day. My princess received first communion. Here's a few select pictures of the day. On the left is a photo of Julia with her godmother Kelly and Kelly's husband Karl. I tried to find a selection of others to give some ideas of the day--Julia with Levi, Julia with a bunch of her friends from school--and of course, Julia with her brothers!

It was a wonderful day. Everyone was able to make it--including Uncle Josh (didn't have to work--he's a PA for one of the emergency rooms) along with Aunt Tisha and the cousins, Uncle Jeremy, Aunt Suzanne and family (Chicago), Michelle, Colton and Levi. Mamaw and Grandpa weren't there physically--but we know they were looking down from heaven and smiling.
The weather, despite a bit of wind, was absolutely lovely--especially for Wisconsin in spring. My first one--bittersweet. I'm glad I kept busy with the camera--otherwise there would have been tears!

Spring in Madison

We've had a busy week. On Wednesday, I took Rauan for testing for gifted and talented. While he was testing, I wandered downtown Madison.
This is the Kohls' Center--where we attend hockey games! Go Badgers!!

Over on the side are pictures of Chewie at a birthday party he attended Saturday (today) at the zoo. He's so cute!
