Even though Adele's birthday isn't for a couple weeks, we decided to have her party before we left Minneapolis (so she could have one last day with all her buddies)...We did it at Edinborough Park and invited ALL of Adele's classmates. Ended up having 22 kids...big crowd, but Adele had a blast. She even scored a few more stuffed animals for her collection. Was kind of amazing to see how perfect all of the gifts were for her. Was pretty funny watching her open them all last night and the sheer amazement with every new present. Guess her classmates and friends know her well.

Took a quick trip to the Mall of America this morning (as Veda had been begging to go). Lucky for us, they just opened up Barbie's Dreamhouse...little girl heaven. While Adele couldn't get enough of the makeovers, dress up, pink boas, etc..Veda was pretty content being a spectator. Adele is certainly going to be our girly, girl...Veda, not so much (which Kathy kinda loves)...

Veda: 'Dad, I think I could walk to school, how far is it?'
Dad: 'About 3 blocks...'
Veda: 'What's a block?'
Dad: 'Well, see those green signs, from one sign to the next, corner to corner, is one block.'
Veda: 'Is that like Red Rover?'
Dad: 'No, Red Rover is a game, a block is a distance, like a mile or a foot'
Veda: 'Oh, well, I think it would be easier if you described it like Red Rover'

We were lucky to score some great seats for the Rose Bowl parade from our friend Ray, who works at Bank of America in Pasadena on Colorado Blvd. (front row seats from his office). From there, Jonathan and Todd went on to the Rose Bowl game. Was a great outcome for John (and the Big Ten Conference).
