Not the best pictures...but it shows their cute sweaters and bows
(And you can see Ella's battle wounds from her playground fight the day before...she was the victim)

And Luca's coordinating sweater

Record breaking temps today

Perry having a good time driving her car

Ella liked walking back and forth from the driveway to the porch

Now she's driving her car

Perry crashed and burned...and getting some help from Grandma Kim

Ella likes to carry things in her "trunk" so she got the newspaper off the porch

Riesy watching from inside

Perry & Ella's dance debut

The teacher trying to get P&E to join the class
(they sat out the first song)

Ok, maybe we'll do what all these other girls are doing...Nah, let's just run around instead
(notice there are 10 other 2 year olds lined up perfectly and P&E are running wild)

I guess walking on their tiptoes with their hands up in the air looked like fun, so they joined in

Perry and Ella are running circles around the class

The pom poms have them interested


Perry loves the pom pom!

Can you pick Ella's backside out of a circle of tu tu's?


Now we're following along with the class!

Tap time

Perry and Ella

Luca chillin' with Mommy

Good job girls!

Ella getting some one on one instruction

After class they got Tootsie Rolls...chewing ever so gracefully

We're starting to learn that if we want to eat a meal in peace, get the girls some ice cream

Luca wants ice cream too!

Mad Luca...but it shows his cute little new tooth

We love the carousel

Alex and Nick having some fun

We think Nick and Luca might be long lost brothers

Mini bowling was a big hit with P&E

Such cute bowling girls

Luca's just takin' it all in
(You can't tell but everything was glowing b/c of the black lights...very trippy)

Some arcade games

Ski ball was a little hard for 2 year olds
