They Knocked Down A Tree!

Jun 27

During our walk this morning Natalie and Gabrielle pushed on a big tree and knocked the whole thing over! They’re a lot stronger than they look. :-)

Jaws is “really, really HOT!”

Jun 27

Jaws was “really, really hot” during our walk this morning. So hot, in fact, that each time we approached a tree, he ran ahead to get to the shade and stayed put until he ran out of leash.

He had plenty of water during the walk… he is always in good hands.

It was hot, but Jaws (and the girls) had fun. :-)

Wings For Lunch

Jun 26

Today the girls went to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch. It was delicious and the girls (as always) had fun.

Rough Weather Tonight

Jun 25

Had some rough weather roll through tonight…  Nothing outrageous but it got very dark in the middle of the afternoon.

Natalie wasn’t feeling well so I enjoyed showing her the video.  :-)

Fishy Lunch

Jun 25

Today at lunch, the girls enjoyed some delicious yellowfin tuna steaks.

This was the girls’ first time eating Ahi tuna and they both enjoyed it.

Soccer Practice

Jun 23

I had a good view if the field before Natalie started soccer practice today so I thought I would snap a picture to share.

Natalie is on the far left.

Rolling Down the Hill

Jun 23

I can’t remember which day this happened, but a few days ago the girls asked if I could record them rolling down the hill before Natalie’s soccer practice.

I get dizzy just watching.  I think my days of rolling down the hill are gone forever.  :-(

Busy Sunday

Jun 06

A great end to a fabulous weekend.

The morning started with an early breakfast and hour-long walk.

After the walk, we ran a few errands. While out, we purchased flowers and potting soil for our empty pots in the driveway.

When we returned, dad and grandpa planted the flowers while grandma watched Jaws and the girls drew scenes from Spongebob on the driveway. Check out the before and after pictures below.

After flowers, everyone helped with a huge feast-of-a-lunch. We had cod ceviche, steak, fried potatoes and cannoli.

After lunch we taught the girls how to properly pronounce the word “MASCARPONE.” Eat your heart out Giada Di Laurentis. :-)

Jaws describing his routine

Jun 06

This morning, the girls and dad asked Jaws about his daily routine… The following video was his answer…

Journals and Matt’s Bar

Jun 05

This morning the girls wrote their first entries in their summer journals. It took a while, but they eventually got it done.

After lunch, the girls hung out at the mall while dad and grandpa had to work.

After work we enjoyed a mountain of Juicy Lucy burgers and fries at Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis. Both girls gave a “thumbs up” rating… as you can guess… the girls had fun. :-)
