random update

We've been watching LA Ink on Netflix lately.  In the show, rocker chick, Kat Von D opens a tattoo shop and you see the stories behind the tattoos and also the lives of the tattoo artists.  So, the girls of course wanted some tats.  Camille wanted a heart with horns, and Sylvia wanted herself as a ballerina, a flower, and a li'l fairy.  I think this says something about their personalities :)

 We love to go to Olbrich Botanical Gardens in all seasons.  We made a quick stop there to eat our lunch last time we were in the city.

The girls got a chance to see some good friends, and then we got to have dinner with more good friends.  Yay!

And we had a weekend visit from the grandparents (I took photos on Grandma's camera, so don't have them to share).  My in-laws joined us for the first fire in our new stove which they kindly gave us as a house-warming present :)

Yup.  I'd say autumn is coming along quite nicely.  Thank you.
