Ivana on her 4th Birthday
I mentioned earlier that our granddaughter Ivana was living in Door County for 7 weeks this summer. She came the Saturday of Memorial Weekend and went back home to Madison on her birthday, July 16.
We had a birthday party for her the day before she left; this was her “princess of the party” crown and scepter. We also celebrated the birthdays of Missy and Kathy Diltz; alas they did not get crowns to wear!
The biggest hits of the party were bubbles for Ivana (and Regan and Missy) and a very large tub of tapioca pudding for Kathy! She was so excited.
Dave and Vonnie said their house is a little quiet this week without Ivana – Vonnie misses her in the morning and Dave misses her at night. During the day, she absolutely loved the Northern Door Child Care Center – and the beach. Anyway, it was time for her to go back home. Her mother Maggie spent most of that time in Nepal on an internship for school. Adam went to visit, then on to Portugal and Ireland before returning to Madison.
It hardly seems like 4 years since Ivana was born. Man, children grow up fast!
