A Great Weekend

My wonderful Husband decided to take the boys up to the lake and leave me home for a little R&R. Saturday I had the girls over to catch up. Sunday morning I went out for brunch with my Mom and Dad. I spent the day shopping with my Mom, then we decided to see a movie in the afternoon. That evening I met a girlfriend for dinner. It was so wonderful not to feel like I had to rush home for anything. What a relaxing weekend! And the boys did great as well. They went Boating, tractor rides, golf cart rides. Isak went to a flower show with Nana and Poppa. And Mark was even able to get some sleep. I think we need to make this a yearly event!

Starting over!!!

In an attempt to be an organized blogger, I sat down last night to categorize my pictures. In doing so I managed to ruin all my past blogs! Instead of spending hours and hours fixing the problem, I am starting over. This post will be a long one trying to catch up on the last two months! Here is what is going on with us.

Isak is in his second week and Dodge, and loving it! We have had allot of Park/Pool days over the past month while Isak was off of school. I started a Summer Yoga in the Park class every Tuesday and it has been one of the best things I have done for myself! Mark and I continue to keep up our running, we are thinking of doing another 10k this summer if we can fit it in. We are looking forward to celebrating the ending of Marks MBA with a celebration after commencement this August, and Christopher & Harrison's 2nd Birthday!



Here is a glimpse of the last 2 months!

We started out this summer with a trip up to the lake for Birthday weekend over Memorial Day. The boys had so much fun riding on the tractor for the first time, and meeting Rockie the Raccoon.

Isak and Mark attempted getting some fishing in. Unfortunately it was a bit windy all weekend so we ended up taking lots of walks and trips up to the bait store.

Poppa needs a bigger tractor with all these boys!

Nana was a trooper keeping the boys busy with a little wrestling match.

The weather finally cleared up enough for a boat ride the boys just loved it!

A bit chilly but worth the trip!

Our back yard is finally contained. No more worries about the boys heading out to the street. We have been enjoying this for the past week! I cant believe we waited so long!

THE 4TH OF JULY
We spent a quiet weekend at home enjoying our back yard. We also took the boys to the Minnesota National Air Force base to look at all the plains, helicopters, and tanks they were in heaven!

I think the best part of it was we were not worried about them damaging anything. They could press as many buttons as they liked. They had a full day of climbing around in the plains and pretending like they were real pilots. We stayed for the air show and then it was home to put some very tired and crabby boys to bed!

For Dinner it was Ribs & Cecil's Cole Slaw!

As you can see it was enjoyed by all!

After dinner Isak read to the boys it was so cute! Now I am caught back up on the goings on of our family, and will do my best not to get behind again!
