On our way to Disney world 

We all tagged along with George to a conference in Florida earlier this month and took the girls to Disney World for the first time. I was there as a kid but George has never been until now.    
  Three cuties on the airplane. I love Clara’s chubby arm wrapped around Lydia.  

 George and Grace watching hgtv channel. Gracie is getting so grown up! She’s getting tall and looks a lot older with her front teeth missing! 

Happy birthday Elliana!

 Elliana recently turned 5! She had a few friends over on a Sunday afternoon to help her celebrate. Excitement was running high of course as we decorated two nights before the party.   
I do have other pictures somewhere but am not seeing them right now. Here’s a photo of my first homemade ice cream cake. It was a hit and very delicious. 

 

Experimenting in the kitchen

I think this was the first science class George has taught our girls. We were a little behind with some of our experiments because I failed to make sure we had all necessary ingredients and materials on the days we were supposed to do certain experiments. Thus, we did a Saturday afternoon catch up with daddy. While doing the different experiments, Grace kept saying over and over very excitedly, “this is great! This is just great!!”  They explored oil and water and learned what hydrophobic/hydrophilic meant and also did experiments with fizz, which everyone including George kept referring to as fuzz. We discovered that soda and lemon juice also fizzes as it does with vinegar (this was Graces idea..she said, “lemon juice is an acid…lets see what happens if we use it instead of vinegar”). The fizz is different though…you should try mixing up the two different concoctions and see what you think.   
  The outfits were also their ideas 🙂 our old lab  coats from working at Northwestern and sunglasses, i.e. Safety glasses.
