We headed to Minneapolis for my last appointment with my neurologist. He says he doesn't have justification to see me anymore since I'm off meds and fairly asymptomatic. I still have leg symptoms, but they're under control and unchanged since I've gone off meds. We had an awesome time there, including the Children's Science Museum, which happened to be hosting the King Tut exhibit....amazing. Also, we went to the Mall of America and one day met up with some friends of ours from Germany (who are currently living in Wisconsin, about to live in Minneapolis, just moved from Japan) at the Como Park Zoo. Lastly, we took a quick trip to Ikea to buy tons of shelving for my new studio...more about that later.

 the only thing Addy got at the Mall of America...a big, fat lollipop

 Ana Sophia was a baby the last time I saw her. Why do kids have to grow up?

 It's awesome when you can pick up right where you left off

Favorite family photo EVER

Now THIS is an IKEA trip

Piano Recital

It's not short, but I figured a few of you would want to see the whole thing.


Granted, she became a teenager almost four months ago, but I've passed the point of worrying about punctuality. So, she's a teenager now and in spite of her hormonal moments, she's still our little Cheeklay. 

Addy is all about the dogs, so I couldn't do this post without a photo of Piper enjoying her party.

The dogs each got her a card.

Addy loves gardening; she's in charge of our garden this year.
