First Day of School

It's hard to believe summer vacation is over and school has begun!

Addy is in 3rd grade this year. She still loves school and was excited to be starting back.
Riley started Kindergarten this year! Wow! It will take her some time to get used to longer days and a new school and new teachers, but I'm sure she will love it. I'm excited to see what this year has in store for her!

Riley was a little skeptical of the bus when it pulled up, but once she got in her seat she was a happy girl!

I got a picture of the three girls together after school. Morgan doesn't start back for a couple of weeks yet which is too bad, she is ready to go!

a day at the wildlife park

Back in Wisconsin, we took a break from swimming for a few hours and went to the wildlife park.

We saw giant turtles
Mitch and Addy fed the bears

We saw some deer up close
But Addy and Morgan's favorite was the bird area. They got sticks with bird seed on them and could pick birds up with them, it was great fun!

American Girl

After being in Wisconsin for a week, I took Riley to Mitch's parents house and Addy, Morgan and I went to Minneapolis. Our first stop was the Mall of America and we headed straight for the American Girl Bistro for some dessert.

Addy likes to get the biggest dessert she can find on the menu. :)
Morgan just wanted a brownie, but you can see she is very excited about it!
Mitch flew in and we made our usual stop at Italian Pie Shoppe with Uncle Bryan and Andrea. Andrea curled Addy's hair which she loved, so I had to get a picture of her while we were waiting for our pizza.
