Our trip to Hamburg!

All four of us went to Hamburg to meet Steve. He only had a little
time before and after the show, but it was entirely worth the journey.
Here, Steve attempts to eat breakfast while Bella sits on his head/back.

Heave Ho! You Landlubbers

We'll start this blog entry with Bella doing a wonderful kung fu pose. She's a natural. This was take in the park on a beautiful autumn day.

Isha has been crawling, standing and even walking a little bit. He has to stand up at every opportunity! Here he sports some striped trousers that are encroaching on his armpits.

Bella, the scary pirate in her new platform bed.

Bella, the silly, sensitive pirate.


Our wonderful neighbor, Maria, her son Benjamin and Bella at Bella's first-ever art opening. Her work was featured as part of a children's art class at the museum of contemporary art. Maria and her husband Martin are favorites of Bella's. Maria often lets Bella come over and just hang out, eat dinner, or listen to her practice trumpet. Maria was nice enough to attend Bella's opening, and Bella was very happy to see her and Benjamin there.

Bears, Bifocals, and Bella...oh my!!!

I find that this photo of Bella exudes her sense of self confidence and
beauty.

Excuse me professor.....

Isha looks dashing in these Sally Jesse Raphael bifocals....

Queen of the mountain!...or rather, the monument.

In this photo Bella bashfully glances down as she stands on a bridge over a moat
around a castle in Torgau, Germany. Did you know that it was quite common
for royalty to keep bears in the castle moat?
