on the road again

Como ZOo with Yamini and Liam














Ready for football season!

Little Ham


Into Everything!


Tomorrow at this time Cy, Jackson and I will be on the road to the great northwoods of Wisco! A last summer hurrah... I was wondering on my run today if the leaves will look different the next time we run around Isles... We'll be gone for about 10 days (Patrick will be home so if you are a burglar: forget about it!) Have a great holiday weekend! Enjoy the fair if you go! Oh, we picked up the cutest board book at Barnes and Noble yesterday - called Good Night Minnesota (http://www.amazon.com/Good-Night-Minnesota-Our-World/dp/1602190348) check it out if you need to get someone a baby gift! Cy loves it! See you in September!

oh what a day. actually, the day was quite nice. good weather 'n all. we had a nice lunch with my friend Nora who is due with her first in a mere two weeks now! but then the awful news about #4 moving to MN came out... and everything just turned sorta purple. To top that off my camera is MIA. I'm pretty sure some busy toddler hands got a hold of it and stashed it somewhere. I'm just hoping he didn't put it in a garbage can or take it out of my bag on some outing. So.. I am photoless for now (awful tragedy since Adrienne's wedding is on Sat!) But don't you fret little grandma's: I have been occasionally using some disposable cameras this summer & I took them into walgreens.. so the pictures you see above are all from disposable cameras from throughout the summer.

The lovely birthday girl with her free HUGE margarita! Happy bday Katie!!


you know... I was thinking as I was driving by the lakes today that we are having a truly awesome summer! We are in a groove. A groove named Fun, that is. It seems like every day we are going on some new adventure... and that there is so much to do! Cy is so active now. He hates to sit around.. he hates to be in the house too long. In the mornings he goes over to the stroller and starts banging on it saying that it is time for our morning run! He loves it! We go around the lakes almost every day.

In the afternoons we usually meet up with friends and do something. The other great thing about this summer is that Patrick and I have had some "time off." Last weekend Cy went to Grandpa and Grandma Emmers' house for an overnight as I stayed in Uptown & went out with the girls to celebrate Katie's birthday. Patrick was in Lake Geneva golfing. This weekend I am going with Annie on a wilderness canoe adventure! We get dropped into the river on Friday & picked up on Sunday. I have been looking forward to this all summer! So excited!

This past week we went to the zoo, went to a local pool, went to lots of parks, went to some friend's houses to play... when you have a kid that is this active it seems the action never ceases! We do soooo much in the day that I can barely keep my eyes open after we put Cy down!
