well this is fun!

Can you tell which one is Cy and which one is his cousin Finn who lives on Whidbey Island (near Seattle)?? Looks like little Finn is getting some good use out of Cy's old clothes!

In a sheepskin(like) jacket:





In a little alpine sweater:

And in a Big Bass tee shirt


Postscript: Wow, Cy just guessed one incorrectly!

fall fun

Last weekend Patrick and I left Cy in Minnesota with his parents and went down to Madison for the Badger Homecoming weekend.
Ran in to my old buddy Katie at a tailgate! Hi Katie! She said she reads our blog!

Beautiful fall tree in Pam's backyard


Pam & I at the game. Pam & her hubby hosted us at their house and took us to the game - in a suite! It was an amazing day. We are lucky because Pam is coming to visit us in Mpls next weekend with her little boy Philip.

Back home this week we spent a lot of time enjoying the great weather outside.

Still drooling, but cute!

Cy loves to "make soup" outside. We pile up sticks, grass, rocks and berries and pretend they're noodles and veggies and other soup parts.


A few days ago Cy declared he wanted to "see dada's machines." Which was a great idea - I don't know why we haven't been to his office in like a year! He loved this robotic arm. He ran around the office asking "what's this?" to everything - including a mop, some packaging peanuts (which he stole as souvenirs) and of course all sorts of machines and tools!

birthdays and beautiful fall days







Cy showing me what he wants to eat. Pulling out of the pantry: peanut butter, chocolate chips, hot chocolate, sprinkles, honey and dried fruit. Looks like someone likes sugar!

Ella's third birthday party. She is the blondie in blue. Cy brought his hot dog in for the pic. He is the youngest of the group.
but his mama is certainly not the youngest of the mamas.
they all started the party in costumes... but it didn't last long! Esp for the boys. It was a beautiful, very very very warm fall day.
Speaking of young, Annie, Cy's Godmother, turned 30!
Cy friend Marley's second birthday party. More cake! Marley isn't in this pic, but her older sister is. Next week: music, school and a weekend at Nana and Boppa's house.
