Memorial Weekend!

This weekend we spent up at the cabin.  It wasn't the greatest weekend weather-wise but some fishing did get done!  I even got a quick nap in on the swing.  It's so peaceful and quiet that it always reminds me of my childhood days living in the country!  Here's some pics to highlight the weekend!

Then we spent today with Grammy celebrating her birthday!  We ate a fantastic brunch at Lord Fletchers followed up by a trip to the Mall of America for some rides at Nickalodean Universe.

Zoo Day!

We enjoyed an awesome day at the Minnesota Zoo today with our cousins, Nikki & all four of her boys (Jake, Charlie, Henry & Tommy)!  We had a beautiful sunny day!  All 6 kids did very well and we enjoyed looking at all the animals, playtime at the awesome playground and a picnic lunch!  These kids are AMAZING and I enjoy everytime we are all together!  SUCH FUN!  Here's a few pics from our day!

We just finished planting our garden!  This is the 1st year I am attempting to do one after many years of really wanting to!  We got a plot at the community garden this year and I think it was a good choice.  They have all the tools (including the kids tools) and an in-ground watering system as well as many other perks.  It is such a great deal!  I'm super excited to eat fresh veggies from the garden this summer!  Here's a  pic of Emma & Marissa "helping" plant!

Gardening Days......

We have a crawler!!!

Brody has finally began to crawl!  It's been a long time coming....he has been working on it for months but now it is in full force!  I am now into baby proofing mode!  He also got 3 new teeth for a grand total of 8 now!  Here's a pic I got of him on the move!!!

Crawling boy!

10 months and 5 days.....

Brody's 10 month birthday came and went and I forgot to blog his update!  He has plagued with ear infections since February so it's been a long 3 months.  He has been on non-stop antibiotics and now is finally schedule for PE Tube Surgery on June 7th!  I can't wait for him to get these tubes so he will start to feel better!  He is otherwise a happy boy but having all that fluid in your ears would irritate anyone!  I am a little nervous to have him put "under" but I am hoping the results will be worth it! 

We are already thinking about his 1st birthday party on July 9th!  Mark your calendars!  We are going to be doing lots of celebrating that we all survived this first year!  HA!  I am happy to report that he is sleeping all the way through the night consistently now!  WOW!  That is such a huge change to life to actually get sleep!  Proud of my little boy!  I'll keep you all posted on the outcome of his surgery!

Marissa's Last Day of Preschool

Today was Marissa's last day of preschool.  She had an awesome year at school and I know she will miss it this summer.  I had to explain why we don't go to school in the summer.  Next year she will go to school Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  The best part is she gets the same teacher again which is something I really like since she was a fantastic teacher!  We walked home with Emma and her little brother, Kolden to have lunch & playtime!  It was a fantastic day!  Here's some pictures from today!
