Another Conversation Between Nick & Ashlee

Nick: "Hey Ash! Can you get my cat's cradle book from my room for me? Tazzie is sitting on my lap and I don't want to stand up and make her go away."

Ashlee: "No. I don't want to."

Nick: "Pleeeeease? I'll give you everything you own!"

When Grandma Comes to Town, Do as the Natives Do

Again, I am still catching up on summertime. Grandma came to visit back in June and we had a great time with her. We took her all the places that would keep the kids happy! Poor Grandma! But she was a good sport as she always is and we love her for it.

The kids had to show her the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum. Here's Nick showing off his rock-climbing skills.

No, we did not execute Ashlee and Grandma. They were just having fun in the green room. They were in front of a camera and the green blankets made you invisible on screen.

There's no better way to refuel after a day of fun at Arby's with Dad. Jere is trying to suck down his vanilla shake before Ashlee asks for more! See how sneaky she looks?

The next event was to celebrate Grandma's birthday at the Olive Garden. Yum!

Afterwards, we took her to visit her old friends, the dinosaurs, at the University of Michigan Natural History Museum. Just kidding Grandma! :) We love to tease her!

The displays there are cool!

We really had a good time there and the kids learned a lot!

Then we dragged Grandma to the Toledo Zoo for some more kid fun!

Unfortunately, we got rained out, but the ride home was exciting with threats of tornadoes all around. It made the sky have a bit of a green tinge to it. Thanks for coming Grandma! We miss you!

Happy Birthday to Sarah!

Today my little sister turns 32!

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to the girl who makes me laugh my head off!

Hope you're eating lots of cake & ice-cream and dancing to your Michael Flatley: Lord of the Dance DVD!

A Conversation Between Nick & Ashlee

Nick: "Hey Ash! Do you want to play a game?"

Ashlee: "OK. What kind of game?"

Nick: "It's called, 'Ashlee, You Are Evil.' "

Ashlee: "Ashlee, You Are Evil?"

Nick: "Yeah." [proceeds to explain the game to her.]

Ashlee: "No, I don't think I want to play that game."
