Marissa's 1st Haircut and Our Family Cabin Weekend.....

Last Monday night, I took Marissa to get her first haircut!  She did great and she loved the pampering of it all.  Even this morning she said she couldn't wait to go back!  The baby hair is all gone now and it's just another reminder that this girl is growing up!

The kids headed up to the cabin with Grandpa and Grandma on Wednesday and we joined them on Friday for the weekend.  It sounds like lots of fishing and boating, exploring in Turtle Bay and playing outside were done!  We enjoyed having the kids together to make cabin memories!

Weekend fun....

We had a BUSY weekend but it was super fun!  We started off the weekend waiting for daddy to get home from work by playing outside!  The kids both love spending time riding their bikes and I'm so thankful for our quiet cul-de-sac!

Friday night, we packed up practically our whole house and went to the local park for the movie in the park night!  The weather was absolutely perfect and it was a fun memory made!

Saturday, I surprised Tony with a date day made up of clues to get to the next event or destination.  Our first stop was a bike ride around Lake Phalen in St. Paul.  It was again such a beautiful day to be outside!

Then onto clue #2!  Next stop is James J. Hill house! 

Clue #3:  Pinstripes in Edina for a quick bite to eat and to enjoy the outdoor patio and on to Clue #4 which was our Ultimate Sushi cooking class in Edina.  The food was excellent and such a fun experience!

The night just wasn't complete without a final stop at the Cheesecake Factory!

Sunday included a long run, church, grocery shopping, a trip to Bunker Beach and dinner on the patio at Joe's Crab Shack!  Such a fun weekend!

On a side note, I have the cutest little helpers....

Another whole month has flown by.....

Well I guess I'm not being a very good blogger when another month has flown by and I haven't updated anything we have been doing!  We have been enjoying our summer however the weather has been less than ideal this year.  Where is the HOT weather? 

This will be another picture filled post!  So in a nutshell here's what we have been up to!  Marissa has been begging her daddy to go on a date so her wish was granted a few weeks ago!  She got to go mini golfing which is one of her favorite things to do with her favorite man!  A Cherry Berry Ice Cream stop ended the night perfectly!  Lucky girl! 

Every summer, Tony & I like to take our bikes down to Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet to go for a nice bike ride and dinner at one of our favorite summer restaurants, Tin Fish.  We even got to listen to some nice music at the Lake Harriet Bandshell!  The weather was absolutely perfect and so much fun! 

We took the kids over to Bunker Park Stables for them to do a pony ride.  I was nervous that the pony was going to trample me but the kids loved it!  Such a fun activity so close to our house!

We have had some awesome opportunities to spend some date nights together this month so we have taken full advantage.  We have been golfing twice in the last week.  It's been so fun to get back out there!  I'm ready to ditch the executive courses and try something more challenging!  I even got to sneak away and go downtown to meet Tony for lunch and the farmers market!  Such an awesome day and one I won't soon forget!

Last weekend, we took the kids to Vikings Training Camp and it was so much fun.  The kids both got to be in the Junior Training Camp and Marissa did the Vikings Cheerleader Camp.  Free ice cream, bounce houses and the perfect weather made the day awesome!  We even stopped by Shakopee on the way home to show the kids our 1st house we had and eat at one of our old hangouts! 

Some silly ones to end this catch-up post!

Hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are!!!!  Until next time.....
