We had a great trip to the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum with our friends Kerri, Warren and Verra.

Jason drove Warren around in the ambulance.

Sophie liked the petoskey stone with the water and brush.

The giant magnet was a big hit, too.

But I think the bubble was the best!

We went to O'Blivions for lunch today. We were happily surprised to find Frank, Zoe and Uncle Tom eating there, too. Uncle Mikhail and Aunt Rosie gave Sophie ketchup and mustard to try. She actually liked both of them!

We had lots of fun until Jason got a black eye. It looks worse in person...

Here is Sophie's hair after I put it up...

And here she is after she took it out.

We picked veggies from our garden today. We have about 10 pumpkins growing and probably about 15 squash total, if not more!

Sophie was very excited to see Daddy when he came home.

Here we are packing up to go home. Sophie and Jason rode on the hotel cart.

We went to Aunt Izzy's house for dinner.

Sophie loved to play in her gravel driveway.

Aunt Izzy, Mommy and Sophie!

The next day we went to the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium with our cousins Michelle, Maddie and Sean.

Jason, Maddie, Sophie and Mommy rode the merry-go-round.

We got to see the baby elephants!

Jason was excited to see the elephants, since the Detroit Zoo doesn't have them.

It was kids day at the zoo, so Maddie, Jason and Sophie made crowns.

Sophie liked the fish!

I thought the polar bear tunnel was amazing!

Jason's favorite, by far, was the sharks!

Here is our 98 year old Uncle Mitchell. He decided about a month ago he would move into a senior center apartment, so we visited him there.

Here he is stealing Sophie's toys... harassing a third generation of our family.

We had a lovely weekend in Pittsburgh visiting family.

We also went to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum. Jason liked the water play level. He built his own fountain.

Sophie just liked getting wet!

Jason and Grammy reading a book.

Sophie playing with the sand table.

And Jason playing with the giant light bright.

The smart car was a hit, too!

Sophie liked to look up and watch the giant ball run!

Jason is launching a ball into the run.

We took friends, Adriana and Cameron, with us to the science center with Lydia, Elsie, Aunt Jenny, and Grandma.

Aunt Jenny read the kids a book.

Sophie likes the turtles.

We had seven other families up to the lake for the weekend.

Sophie liked playing in the water.

Daddy, Jason, Claire and John went for a canoe ride.

Lydia, Elsie and Aunt Jenny went with us to a Wild Wednesday Nights concert at the zoo.

Jason and Lydia held hands as we saw the animals.

And looked at the seals together.

Daddy met us for a picnic dinner and the butterfly house.
