So things have been a bit crazy here.  On June 1st, we had three tornadoes touch down here in our little area.  No major damage to us, besides some crazy hail dents in my car.  But some of the surrounding areas haven't been so lucky.  There was a ton of damage in several other places, and they said on the news this morning it was an EF3 that cut a 39 mile path through the state!

Despite that, we had a fun weekend.  We went to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, and Hannah got her Strega Nona book signed by Tomie dePaola.  She was over the moon excited, and she even got a picture with him. 

Yesterday we headed up to Grampy and Mimi's house for a bridal shower for Auntie Sara and Zach.  The girls had a great time playing with everyone, and eating a ton of food.  I can't believe they'll be leaving today and back in three weeks to start the countdown to July 3rd!  We booked our hotel, and Hannah gets out of school a couple days prior, so it all works out great.

Speaking of school, Hannah has to go to school until June 28th to make up all the snow days we had this winter.  She's a little unhappy she won't still be getting out on the 20th, especially since some of her friends had the same amount of snowdays, but get out on schedule next Wednesday.  I don't know why the city doesn't plan some days in, but maybe they will now.
