August 18, 2010 - arrival at Disney World!

Before "real" school started in the Fall, we decided we needed to take our first trip to Disney World (Colin, Papa and I)!!!

Arrival to FL, excited for our adventures to begin!

We stayed on the Disney property, at the All Star Music resort, here's Colin waiting for the shuttle for our first adventure in the Magic Kingdom!

Best place on earth!

August 8, 2010 - tie dye t-shirt party!

We wanted to have a get together with Colin's friends, especially those that he wouldn't see at Guardian Angel (day care) anymore once the kids started kindergarden in the Fall. So, we did it up, having a tie dye t-shirt party for Colin's 20 most closest friends (yes, we are crazy :)

It was a blast, and had so much fun with Colin's friends and their parents!

Krish, Colin and Brendan having a snack / Kids making their tie dye t-shirts
Slime and silly putty making! / Kids playing in the sandbox

July 27, 2010 - watching our garden grow

Colin has been an amazing helper in planting and taking care of our new garden bed, here's the mid summer progress! We have learned plenty already for next year's planting!

July 25, 2010 - WFB Classic Bike Race

We met some friends for the Whitefish Bay Classic Bike Race on Sunday afternoon, a fabulous event full of speed bicycle racing around sharp corners many times with spectators to cheer the racers on!

Colin rode his bike and I walked with him to meet our friends to watch the Classic super fast bike races!

The racers zoom by us on the curb!

Snacks and exciting racing, much fun to be had right in our neighborhood!

Colin waves at and cheers the bike racers on!!!!

The bike ride back home, where the racers zoom by Colin on his bike a few times!

July 21, 2010 - last day of BRL, the best place on earth

We didn't want to leave on our last day at the Black River Lodge... and we have vowed to find a way to make it the full week next year (and crossing every finger and toe for our own cabin!)

So.... Colin spent the last morning learning some fisherman skills from Kris (diver guy) and we enjoyed the last few hours in an amazing environment, with such wonderful friends and pseudo-family :)

Thanks Sellers clan for inviting us into your family to share in the Black River fun and we can't wait for next year! (I think Colin will be ready to be a river diver!)
