Maddie's Visit

Our niece, Madison, came to visit from Ohio over her spring break. We did a lot of fun things together and Sofia loved spending time with her.

Creating spring cards at the craft station

Sofia didn't like going fast up on the rooftop

Sofia went down her first covered twisty slide all by herself!

Maddie and Sofia had a great time greeting the animals at the Chattanooga Zoo. Here they're posing by the monkey at the entrance.

We were surprised to find this peacock wandering the pedestrian path, but then realized it was allowed!

The petting zoo was a favorite. This goat tried to eat the map I was holding!

Madison and Sofia had a minor collision with another little girl at Playworld Down Under today. Oops! Lesson Learned: Do not crawl up the slide.

Zio Gabriele's visit

Sofia's zio (uncle), my brother Gabe, came down to spend almost a week with us. It was great having him here. If we could just talk him into relocating!

Sofia petted a python at the Creative Discovery Museum! I think her favorite part was cleaning her hands afterwards.

New Dance Moves

Sofia brushed up on some new dance moves while at the Creative Discovery Museum a few weeks ago.

Newly finished knitting project!

Though she is usually happy to wear it, Sofia is screaming while modeling her poncho for the camera.
