For Grandma's Only

Here are some more cute pics from last weekend.

Fall Celbration

This past weekend was the 2nd annual fall celbration at Cokato Lake. The weather somewhat cooperated and several of our friends and family were able to attend.

It seems that Jamie was trigger happy on the camera, so we will let the pictures explain the days festivities.

Still talking...

The McCracken Clan

Look out for the pumpkin eating monkey!

Turns out, Monkeys like trains...

I love campfires. Especially, the ones with a cool chimney

Zach and Sylvia playing Cars

Sylvia's 1st pile of leaves

Of course the day went by way too fast, but marks the end of a way too short Summer and Fall. I can't wait until next Spring when we can invite the gang out to the lake again.

If she didn't look like her dad, I would really question that she is mine!

Sylvia's latest hobby includes sweeping the floor. She even sweeps under the bed!

You missed a spot!

If you look closely at her nose, you will see beads of sweat. It could be that she is working so hard, or maybe that she is wearing her winter jacket in the house...

This isn't the only broom she likes. Sylvia grabbed our curling brooms and had an absolute fit when we took them away. We may have a future Olympian on our hands.

Little Bear

I think the naughty little bear was looking for hunny and then she wasn't sure how to get down.

Big Fan!

This weekend was a great one for Minnesota sports fans. Sylvia wanted to join in the fun and get all dressed up for the festivities.

First we watched the Gophers almost win back Paul Bunyan's Axe against those pesky Badgers, but it wasn't meant to be.

Sylvia was a big fan with her Gopher's cheerleader outfit.

The more exciting part of the day was when the Twins won a great battle against the Royals. I think Sylvia's outfit (although rather boyish) was the luck the Twins needed to pull one out against Grienke.

And yes... she was sporting her Twins pride again today as we forced a game 163, which dad and grandpa will be at!

The day wasn't to be spent alone, as Charleen, Michael, and Ben made the trip down to spend 'babysitting' (aka watching sports) and Charleen and Jamie had some quality mom / daughter time.
