Polish Fest?

Who's going?? WE ARE!! Will we see you there? I've never been to Milwaukee before, let alone Polish Fest, so I'm super excited. Even better will be meeting families that have adopted or are in the process of adopting from Poland.

In other news...4 months waiting done. While it is possible a referral could come any time, we expect some more months of waiting. The waiting isn't too painful (yet), but I am starting to want to do something...prepare in some way. That is just super hard to do since we did not specify male/female, and we don't even know if he/she will be in a crib or a bed. Ah well -- we should be spending time learning some Polish (or at least refreshing the little we have learned).

We recently got back from a trip to California - we had a blast with my parents and Klaudia was a trooper going to wineries, seeing Bodega Bay, and exploring some kid-friendly and some not-so-kid-friedly sights. I think her highlights were the swimming pools, the Dora Easter basket and eggs from G&G, the orange mini-van rental, a Spongebob DVD, and the cats at Preston Family Winery.

We had a great Easter with Ryan's family and enjoyed hunting for eggs and opening thoughfully put together Easter Baskets - we'll have treats for quite awhile! I'm glad spring has sprung. We have been enjoying the nice weather and being able to be outside. Klaudia is much better at her tricycle now and she LOVES playing with the neighbor kids.

Hope everyone is having a nice spring! Klaudia is looking forward to exploring new places in Milwaukee...and she is an expert traveler now...
