First Snow!

Our First snow this past weekend brought lots of fun. Tyler and I walked in the snow, built a snowman (his carrot nose was from our vegetable garden, freshly dug up!). And our resident squirrel-pal came to the door for some nuts (he is exceedingly bold!).

Butterflies and Frogs - The Milwaukee Museum

During Thanksgiving week we took a trip up to Milwaukee. We went to the Pabst Mansion (one of my absolute favorite historic mansions), the Milwaukee Museum, and to The Safe House (a spy-themed restaurant). It was fun and especially nice because all of us were able to go. Here are some photos:

Here are the kids with butterflies:

Grandson - what a cutie!

Julie - "wearing" a big butterfly

Kristin - two butterflies landed on her, including the big one
