New vids have been added at top of 1st page. Some browsers have trouble viewing for some reason but I have found that Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox browsers work for me. We had a recent trip to the Wisconsin Dells. Emma got to hang out with her buddyAlesha as well as Alesha’s big sister Brittany. Emma enjoyed the waterparks but was a bit overwhelmed by all the wild kids splashing and the noise. We went to a quiet area and Emma was right at home going in and out of the water.
