Camping at Grandma Betsy and Grandpa Rick's Camper

What a great time we had at the camper! We went swimming, and on numerous golf cart rides; the kids favorite thing to do! Something new this year was sparklers! The kids loved them and called them "sprinklers." Ethan also loved helping Grandpa Rick chop wood. He could do it all by himself and he was proud. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for a fun weekend!!!

MOA with Abby

These pictures are courtesy of Auntie Krissy! Thanks for taking these pictures after my camera broke.  I didn't want to miss out on these precious moments!

Cousin Abby Visits, Day Six

Day six looked a lot like day five. We went back to the Mall of America for more rides and fun, this time with Tim.  The kids wore themselves out again enjoying themselves. Ethan rode the orange roller coaster 4 times. He even put his hands up when the roller coaster went down hill.

At night Abby stayed home with the kids so Tim and I could take the bike to the Twins game. They lost again, but it was a fun night away. Thanks Abby for babysitting!!

Cousin Abby Visits, Day Five

Today we ventured off the Mall of America on it's 20th anniversary. All three kids and my self rode all the rides. We had a blast. Auntie Krissy and baby Kaitlyn joined us too. We had a great time, and everyone was tired afterwards.

That night, Abby and I went to Kona Grill for Sushi. Aby tried 4 different kinds of sushi and liked all of them. Some better than others. Then it was off to the Twins vs. Rays game at Target Field. We walked all around the park and sat in a bunch of different seats. It was fun to see the game even though the Twins lost. I think  both Abby and I collapsed after we got home. A very fun but long day!

Couin Abby Visits, Day Four

Today we visited the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Abby walked around reading all the plaques and learning about everything around us.  Ethan and Ella ran all over trying to climb on the art (which is not permitted). All in all it was fun to walk around and see the many different art pieces and the kid loved being able to run around. It is great to ave a park like this so near us to enjoy!
