birthday at the park.

colby & adele hanging out on the playground at ella's birthday party.

when i look through pictures over the last couple of years here in kansas city, i can't believe how much my nieces & nephew have grown. i love being an aunt, and feel lucky to live so close to all these little ones to watch them grow.

the kids all got train conductor hats for ella's train-themed birthday party. it was such a perfect day to be outdoors, and a great party. :)

lily came to stay with us last weekend while drew, em, and ella were out of town. i'm surprised lily trusted kirkwood enough to close her eyes, but the 3 of them napping on the couch was a funny sight! not staged, and too cute!!

iu football.

it came as no surprise that my hoosiers didn't come out with a win against the no. 9 buckeyes. as the ohio state football games always go at indiana - it was a sold out crowd, thanks to the loyal [and obnoxious] osu fans. we were sandwiched in a sea of O-H-I-O chanters, so we finally cowered over to the student section to make the game a bit more tolerable albeit their 33-14 loss.

but the stadium looked great! with the newest addition of seating in the end zone AND a stadium full of red! (nevermind that most are osu fans)

it was SO cold! but it was so great to spend the day with my very dear friend erin (& her husband!) in one of my favorite places on earth: bloomington, indiana.
