Day at the lake

We took advantage of the great weather today and spent some time at the lake. It was nice to get back out there, especially to see the process on the new construction. The foundation walls were poured earlier this week. We spent some time visualizing the final build.

While relaxing in the porch, Sylvia tried her first Oreo cookie... I think she liked it.

She also enjoyed her first 4-wheeler ride today. I tried to give her a ride last year and she cried, whereas this year she loved it... what a difference one year makes!

Have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend.

Moving Day

Goodbye South Minneapolis...

Hello Woodbury...

In a couple hours we will close on our new house. It should be obvious that we are very excited for the move, but also torn, as we are going to miss the fantastic neighbors and the great memories we have had over the past 7 years.

Goodbye South Minneapolis...

Happy Mother's Day

A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. – Tenneva Jordan

While this may be true from some moms, I am certain Jamie would ask "Do you have any ice cream for my pie?"

An additional thing to remember on Mother's day... Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. ~Sam Levenson

Happy Mother's Day!
