Tony's 30th Birthday!

We helped Tony celebrate his 30th birthday on Friday with a trip to Stillwater and dinner with family & friends at the Old Spaghetti Factory on Saturday night. Now that we are both 30, we are really starting to feel old :)


We had a great week with my mom in Mexico! Here's a few pics that highlight the week!

Funny saying of the day....

Most days, I get a good chuckle from something Marissa says, here was this morning's good one:

Me: Marissa, tell Daddy "Later Gator!"

Marissa: "I can't say Later Gator, Daddy's not a gator, he's a daddy."

Mmmm.....silly me, what was I thinking?

Como Zoo

Sandals, Sun, Warmth, Giggles, Smiles, Excitement, Smell of fresh air, and a Picnic lunch all led to a fantastic day at Como Zoo just Marissa and me. Beautiful!

I just love having a girl!

It is so fun for me to get dress my little, correction, big girl up in girly outfits! Here's a couple pics from yesterday! Gotta love the headband!

Toddler Tuesdays....

Pam, Kyja, Marissa & I hit the Mall of America for Toddler Tuesday this morning. There was lessons on how to do the bunny hop and Easter egg hunt through park and of course a meeting with the Easter Bunny. After waiting in a long line, we finally got the chance to take a picture with the Easter Bunny but Marissa just screamed and said that bunny is too big. So I guess she was unimpressed with him. Here's a few pics from the morning.

A direct quote....

Me: Marissa, Do you want a hot dog for lunch?

Marissa: No, Mommy...I want a hot puppy.

Me: (laugher erupts) Ok, babe....I'll make you a hot puppy!

I love it!

How a year can change a kid.....

I was just looking back at pics from John's birthday last year and I just thought I would post one picture from it! I can't believe how much she has grown up! This is from April 2008!

Happy Birthday, Uncle John!

It was Uncle John's birthday on Friday so we got to help him celebrate with a BBQ at his house on Saturday night! Here's a few pics from it and some from this morning before church!
