First days with Grandmere

We picked up Grandmere from the airport on Thursday morning. Bella chose a small bouquet of flowers from the florist shop near the streetcar station.

Bella is extremely skeptical about most people...outside of the really intoxicated men who hang out near the train station....she is always friendly with them. She is warming up to Grandmere... For the past two mornings I woke up to find Bella sitting on the bed staring at Grandmere.

For my fans on Gary Street!!!

Last weekend we went to a street festival in our old neighborhood. There were so many children at the festival....There were areas were the children could practice yoga...Bella and her friend Helena learned how to do the "dog" and "duck" pose....their favorite animals.
Today we met Helena and her Mom in the park and had a picnic. Basically, Helena and Bella throw the food everywhere and mix spices into the food (dirt and grass). They found a giant log and climbed through it a couple times.
Only two days until Grandmere arrives!

Here are a few new pictures of Bella from the previous weekend. We spent most of our free time at the playground. Have I ever mentioned that the playground has a small beer garden and coffee stand?
