My trip diary, day ten

Finally a blog about our day in photos!

We started out the day like every other. Tired. Lazy. Didn't get out of jammies until 1:00. Then things really started to pick up.

My mom and I played UpWords and drank diet Pepsi. We do this several times a day. I win the majority of the time. My poor mother is NOT thrilled. Look at those letters I get! Very sad.

Iris colored while we played UpWords.

Then she decided to take a break from coloring to snap some pictures.

After photos is was time to put baby Yellow to sleep. First she needed to be nursed.

Then she needed to be rocked and sung to (I got video of this, but I'm too lazy to get it on YouTube right now) and then I held on to her so she would stay asleep. Don't let the eyes fool you, she was fast asleep!

Then Iris came inside and colored some pictures of the doggies. I think this is her "best" picture to date. I absolutely love it!

Eloise got some smooches from two of my mom's dogs. She has three. The grayish one on the left is Alex. He is Lily's son. The one on the right is Lola. She is Alex's daughter. Not pictured is Ruby, Lola's mother. Ruby thinks Eloise is one of her puppies and treats her as such. The dogs are so cool because they are incredibly gentle with the girls.

After dinner we went to Frostie's. Yum. I love Frostie's sooooo much. Too much. My pants were fitting a bit snuggly last night, I noticed. Uh-oh. I got a butterscotch sundae, which I shared with Eloise, Iris got strawberry soft serve and I had them put whipped cream and a cherry on hers instead of on my my sundae. Grandma got blackberry and vanilla swirl in a cone. Everything at Frostie's is pink, pink, pink!

And that was it! Exciting, no?


  1. Yum, Frostie Freeze. In my hometown it was Tastee Freeze. Why don't they have them here? I guess a sad substitute is Dairy Queen. Oh right and it is rainy and cold nine months of the year. :) I've always thought opening a Tastee Freeze here would make someone rich. And fat. Very very fat.

  2. Great pics! I think we have almost the same haircut too! Glad you're having a great trip!

  3. Sounds delicious! I want to eat ice cream with whipped cream and cherries on top AND play upwords all at the same time.

  4. LOL! I am new to your blog through Elizabeth at The Whole Family and that was jsut SOOO fun to read! I Loved, Loved Loved the picture of your daughter nursing her doll!!

  5. Love these photos! I've been so out of the loop, I can't believe how big Eloise has gotten (Iris too!) Are you still traveling this summer?

    Hey wait! Just realized you're in Milwaukee- are you still? Come down to Chicago woman!
