Mother's Day & Cy Turns 8

We've had a marvelous weekend! My parents drove up to Minneapolis from Wisconsin. Yesterday we threw Cy his 8th bday party - he invited the entire class! We rented a park shelter and had a "critter lady" come. She put on a little show with an armadillo, a scorpion, a chinchilla, a hedgehog and more.

Today we just returned from a wonderful brunch with both sets of grandparents and uncles. Afterwards we managed to squeeze in a few photos at the park before the boys got full of water and sand. It is a beautiful day and they got soaked on the shore. They both had to ride home without pants! 'Tis the beginning of a long, adventurous and dirty summer! Cheers!

Visit from Mom and Dad

Last weekend my parents came up to visit from Milwaukee. The boys had a short week of school and we used the opportunity to visit some of our favorite city spots on a weekday! We hit up the Bad Waitress and then cruised down to Mill City Museum (one of my boys' all time favorite places to go) and then peeked into the Guthrie before heading home.
