Three coins in the fountain

We'll see if spare change thrown in the fountain leads to my wishes coming true.

Party on, party people

I celebrated my newly minted 4-year-old friends, Sophia and Katarina, with not one but two birthday parties! That means twice as much cake, ice cream, and candy as I can handle in one day!

Visiting about Vincent

While she was in NYC, Auntie Barb picked up a book for me that just happens to feature my mommy's favorite painting in the whole wide world.

From tree to totem pole

I was amazed to see what the neighbors did with their tree in the front yard.

Talking on the telephone

Grandma & Grandpa called tonight, and we had so much to catch up on.

Party's over

The worst thing about vacation is when it's over and you have to say goodbye.

Slow cooked

Ever wonder what a four-year-old looks like after spending a whole day at a 67-acre water park?

My kinda game

Played miniature golf for the first time today. What's not to like about hitting colorful little balls into medieval castles.

The cousins

I met my two new cousins James and Keira yesterday.  Today, the rest of the cousins arrived from Montana and we posed for a picture.

Mountain exploration

Waterfalls, winding roads and wildlife. Spent an exciting day exploring Rocky Mountain National Park.

My little legs carried me on a four mile hike in the mountains. I met a lot of chipmunk friends along the way.

Headed west

Headed to Colorado for a week of fun and family. But first, a little art appreciation in western Kansas.

Mini block party

I was in the front yard running through the sprinklers and trying to clean off the mud when who should stop by? My nifty neighbors, Ava and Avelyn

Too. Much. Sugar.

I had to promise to eat the whole donut and not just the frosting. Yeah right.

Ready for my close-up

I'm such a ham sometimes.

Post-Fourth Fiesta

Let's see, we had watermelon. Fireworks. A huge backyard to play in. A lagoon that was off-limits. And a movie to watch. Those Uptmor boys know how to party.

A little spill

Tipped over on my bike. No worries. Wasn't hurt. Got right back on it to ride again.

Miss Congeniality

I'm such an outgoing person, I can make friends anywhere. It didn't take me long to win over this sushi waitress (with a little help from my monkey, of course).

Water, water everywhere

Forget the zebra pool. All the rain we've had lately has turned my sandbox into a wading pool.

Tummy troubles

Because Dr. Soltz doesn't have x-ray vision, he needs a special machine to see what's going on inside my body.

Diving head first into life

Dad says this sums me up perfectly.

Summer brew

Helen's summer drink recipe*: A handful of dirt, some flower petals and water from the sprinkler. 
(* = not safe for consumption)

Independence Day

Tonight's fireworks show is shaping up to be a pretty good one.

Special cat-care instructions

I promised Dr. Solomon I wouldn't let Spatz outside unless he was under my supervision. He was impressed more by my pronunciation of "supervision" than he was of my promise to keep a close eye on this pesky cat.

Putting on my swimsuit and my turbo chargers

I'm pretty sure this butterfly swimsuit gives me lightening speed.

Pigtails & Crewcuts + Frozen = Awesomeness!

I'm here to get my hair cut, not to watch a movie. Repeat.

Just ship it

This box is waaaayyyyy too small for me to travel in.

Color partners

As a connoisseur of coloring options at restaurants, The Anchor is among the best.
