August 2006 -- III

Astrid is all wound up

Ursula and her friend Sam

Astrid is in an Ox Roast parade.

Ursula gets the first ride on "Mr. D".

Jaana checks out "Mr. D", who lives in her room. (He was made by her great-grandfather, the one she was named after, for her great aunt, and has just arrived after a long journey from South Carolina.)

Mr. D brought some dining room furniture along with him.

Ursula tries out the table.

And our old dining room table is now Ursula's craft table. She's excited!

Astrid takes a ride on Mr. D, whose eyes arrived in the mail that very day!
