Sunday

Sunday we went for a drive and saw some beautiful landscapes. This is a view of Calhoun County, ILL.
We ate lunch at the Finn Inn in Grafton, Ill. It's a great place to eat fish and a wonderful family atmosphere!! Each table has an aquarium so it keeps kiddos entertained. We really enjoy going there and we love the scenic drive. Unfortunately it takes a little longer to get there due to the Ferry closing in Winfield. Here is Izzy in the waiting room (there is always a line to eat) and there is this huge snapping turtle! Izzy was in awe!!

Izzy entertained hersel pretending to feed the fish pepper and salt!! I know, she's special!!

Izzy and her daddy looking at all the interesting fish at our table!! There were some cool ones. Izzy kept trying to pick out which one she was gonna eat!! She was a little confused!!

Here's a pic of Izzy poking her head out the window while on the Ferry. She just thought that riding the Ferry was the neatest thing ever!! She really enjoyed the day!

After the Show. . .

After Disney on Ice we went to Nancy's for the rest of the afternoon and evening. The girls had a great time playing together. Lydia has a much 'cooler' playground set than Izzy. She pointed this out several times!! (hint, hint, daddy!!)
Here is Lydia with a Mr. Potatoe head piece in her mouth! Her personality is really coming out!!! This is her silly side!!
The really cool playset!! Izzy loves playing on the swings!!

Here is daddy spending some quality time with Iz since he didn't go to the show with us!!

Disney on Ice

This Saturday we went to Disney on Ice. The show was about the Incrediables visiting Disney world. It was a great performance. Here are some pics of our day!
This is Izzy and Lydia standing as close to the ice as possible. Our seats were in the second row. So we had an amazing view!!!!

I spend more time watching Izzy's face then the show! She was so amazed!! She about flipped out when Cinderella rolled out in her fancy coach!! I loved seeing how shocked and excited she was!! Who would have thought she could sit for 2 hours!!

Here's my attempt at getting a decent pic before the characters skated off. We had close seats but my piece of crap camera doesn't do well in the dark!! Hopefully Meg got some better pics!!

Izzy with G'ma and Cousin Meg. Unfortanetly I did not get a pic of Nancy and Lydia (Lydia was upset by how loud it was and had to leave shortly after the show started. Poor girl!!)

Izzy and Mommy! I just wanted to say a quick thank you to G'ma Janet for getting us all tickets with fabulous seats!! We all had a great time!! Thank you!

Getting Ready!

Here are some pics of us getting ready for vacation. Izzy helped Daddy give Nicki a bath.

Izzy saw that I was making a batch of rice krispy bars and decided she need to help. (I still don't know what it is about her cooking without clothes on!!!)
