Kirstin's 15 and MiKayla's turns 7!

Kirstin was actually in NY on her birthday.
When she got back her friends made her some brownies
to celebrate her 15th.

We had a little party to celebrate them both.

Kirstin requested cheesecake and MiKayla wanted a
rainbow sprinkle butterfly.
 Thanks Aunt Roberta for the butterfly cake mold!

*Tired little birthday girl*

Kirstin is officially a sophomore and MiKayla
a first grader. (tears)
We are so proud of both of them.
They did amazingly well in school this year
and we expect nothing less for next year.
I love watching everyone grow into 
their own personalities.
Each year changing their likes 
and dislikes, adapting to their surroundings,
and still trying to figure out who THEY
are in our large family.
Born one week apart, 8 years apart.
These two girls are so special and I 
love that they have celebrated their birthdays
together every year. 
I hope that even when they are grown we
can keep that tradition.

Happy birthday girls!!!

New York City-Trip 2

Kirstin was invited to New York with Gramma and Luke.
Round two, here we go!

The weather was on the chilly side but Kirstin actually liked it
since they did alot of walking around.

They did a bus tour which everyone enjoyed.

They walked, and walked, and walked some more.
The teens had a hard time keeping up with gramma.

Kirstin's favorite part of the trip was the 
'School of Rock' musical.

Art museums, 9/11 memorial, riding the ferry, 
China town, and Central Park is just to name a 
few of their adventures.

My favorite pic:)

They had an amazing time filled with lots 
of sight seeing and good food.
Kirstin is definitely a city gal.
She loves people watching and walking around exploring.
Luke was happy to have out grown Kirstin 
and is full blown teenage boy.
 It was awesome that they got to spend some time together
at this age. I'm positive they will remember the trip forever!
Gramma is definitely the traveling adventure seeker of the family, and 
we are so glad Kirstin got to experience New York with them both.

A Visit With Grandpa-May 2017

Grandpa came to visit!
Everyone is always super excited to when he comes to town.
He is definitely an adventure seeker.

They got manicures.

He  ventured to the 'dangerous for parents' toy store with them!

They went on the Duck tour. It's a big truck that tours the city 
then makes its way into the river and you go around seeing 
Pittsburgh from the water.
 Daniel got to drive the boat and even got his license:)

Sadly I accidently deleted the other photos:(
I guess he will have to come back for
some more adventuring!
