My Neice, the Violin Virtuoso

During my visit to Rhode Island, I spent most of the weekend enjoying the company of my two nieces, Isabella and Elizabeth. We had so much fun together, playing ball, walking to the park, playing cards, baking brownies, etc. I went to the store and bought a stash of things: a new Barbie doll, a bunch of stickers and writing paper, and her favorite, a Barbie "Shoe Boutique", which was a box with three different pair of shoes. What is it about girls and their shoes I'll never understand. I also had a real treat: Isabella, the violin virtuoso performed a mini-concert on Saturday night. Click the video below to hear her amazing violin solo.Enjoy!
