Thursday, September 30, 2010

I can't believe it will be October tomorrow! I love that month, beautiful Fall days, Paco's b-day, our anniversary (5 years baby! woot!)

I took a major blogging break last week, so I'm working on catching up!

It was kinda a yucky day outside the day of my birthday so we all laid low for most of it but that was okay, I was so spoiled by my boys with breakfast in bed and lots of singing! I even had a candle on my toast :)
Robb and I went out to celebrate in the evening at Olive Garden, our favorite, while Grayden got to play at Grandpa and Grandma L's house!
I love birthdays!

"And the more You show me, the more You grow me
The more Your glory becomes all there is
And the more I know You, the more I need You
The more I love You, the more You become to me"

Wisconsin Dells!

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

We all left bright and early Sunday morning (the 29th) at 5:30am to head to Wisconsin Dells. We got there around 11:30am, Grayden did great during the trip! This is a little video we took of him in the car saying ‘milk’ its so cute! He calls his cup a ‘puck’, a little backwards!  ha-ha!

our hotel
We decided to go on the ‘duck ride’ while we waited for our room to be ready. Robb and I have been on one of these amphibious vehicles before but this one was WAY fun!
We saw lots of cool stuff during the land tour!

We went straight from land into the water, such a weird feeling!
after the duck ride we checked out our room, which was really cool, it was a 3-bedroom suite with kitchen, and dining area!

We couldn’t wait to check out the water parks! our hotel had 8 of them!

We went to an outlet mall and Grayden found this little horsey ride! he loved it!
We went to Moose Jaw restaurant one night and all loved it, I wish there was one around here!

the whole fam!
our hotel had an arcade right on down the hall from our room so we spent some time playing games one night! Grayden won lots of fun stuff! ;)

We also went to a ski show one night which was also very cool and a little nerve wracking, I think my blood pressure was a little elevated after that! It was hard to get pictures since it was so dark but Lisa did take this video of one of the more milder tricks:

We had such a fun time! Robb, Grayden and I  packed up and left for Rochester Tuesday evening and the rest of the family stayed until Wednesday.
We hope to go back again sometime!!

Labor Day Weekend~

We didn’t have much planned for our weekend which was actually kind of nice to not be so busy for once!

We did some cleaning and organizing in the basement on Saturday and went out with my family for my birthday (this coming saturday) dinner.


After that we went to my parents house and played Apples to Apples.

Sunday we went to church and took a long bike ride, it was such a nice day. Its definitely cooled off here!

Monday we went to the truck parade downtown, we got a little rained on and those trucks were loud so Grayden wasn’t so sure of the whole thing, maybe we’ll try again next year!





We headed to my parents cottage later in the afternoon and the guys worked on getting the boat and shore station out while the girls relaxed!

I loved having a nice long weekend especially after we just came home from Mayo it was nice to have some time to relax!
