The last few moons...

The coolest kid's ride we've found yet - Dizzy Dragons at DelGrosso's - daddy could ride along too and spin spin spin. Lili's not a huge fan of going on rides alone, so rides like this are the bestest. And I get to ride in a dragon too.

Sara and Lili before a beautiful wedding near Roanoke, VA...


...and the playground half way back from Roanoke, VA that made the drive back managable.



Look! Miffy and Bunny!

More good times with Pappy at Knoebels...

and Grammy too...

Check out my new glasses!


Finally, traversing the maze of cheese at Knoebel's...more to come, I promise!

Preschool fame

They handed out a brochure at Lili's preschool with her cute little smiling face on it, along with some of her little friends - I don't see the brochure on their website yet, but there she is on the page for the preschool! Clickety click, scroll halfway down, and check it out...

Please touch

Funny, the day before we went to the Please Touch Museum in Philly, we were checking out Lili's favorite toy store and saw a new sign on the huge ferris wheel that kids are always tugging at and pawing - "PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH". I can't blame the store owners, that poor piece of toy store window candy had been through years of abuse...
So it was a nice segue - see that sign, Lili? Tommorow we're going to the Please DO Touch Museum! It's a germ factory!

First, a nap...mmm...hotel pillows...



Then shopping...



Such a cool Merry-Go-Round/Carousel/Horsy thingy:



Then to a tea party with Cheshire Cat:



The hall of mirrors in Wonderland:

And the highlight of the whole place...
The dryers next to the water splashing goodness!!!
