VanDyk Gathering!
Erik and Rachel (WHO ARE EXPECTING!!!!!!YES!DUE MARCH 7) hosted a VanDyk bash on Saturday. Everyone had a blast swimming and the meal began with the OH SO Wonderful announcement that there will be a new member in the family in March. Congratulations guys!!!

Ksena is laughing at me because she has just dumped water on my dry hair which I was not planning on getting wet! Nasty little critter.

Oh so talented husband!

We took the girls to Pinafore Park tonight after supper. Mia (as you can tell) had a blast. Ksena wouldn't get near the water.

Trying to be brave but staying very dry.

Adventures on Wonderland
Well, since the rain came down on park day we headed for Adventures on Wonderland. The kids had great time...although Ksena was a bit lost in all the commotion-I don't think she liked the noise.

Coffee Break!!

Only Tiana would think of doing this!

Group Shot
Lunch at Angelo's

A Weekend at U. Icky and A. Rachel's
Friday night we dropped Mia and Ksena off at Nana & Papa's house and we headed for Vineland. We had a supper date with my friends (as one of them is up and leaving for Virginia in a couple of weeks!!) in Hamilton and then stayed the night at Erik and Rachel's. Dan finished the electrical work in their downstairs apartment and I hung out with Becky and Rachel. Blake was so sweet-he calls U. Icky 'e-e-e'.

Esmé ended up in A. Rachel's crocheting basket while Daddy and U. Icky ate breakfast. Thanks for the hat U. Icky!
We stopped in at Lynnette's house on our way back from Vineland and we got some raspberries freshly picked from their family's berry patch. The girls enjoyed them when we picked them up from Nana & Papa's house.
