Mall of America fun!

On Friday we took the kids to the Mall of America, they have a huge indoor park area with tons of rides, I think it's called Nickelodean Universe now. Anyway, we had promised Wyatt to go for his birthday back in April, and well, it just worked out now that we were able to go.

The kids had a blast and went on every ride they could. I took a few pictures, but did mostly video's. Hope you enjoy!

Wyatt's New Room

Yes you are so lucky today, 2 blog posts in 1 day.

About a month ago we moved Wyatt into his own room. We moved him into the playroom so each kid would have their own room. Minus Zack of course.

Wy's room is now about 95% done, we still need a few items for the walls, but overall we are happy with how it came out and most of all he LOVES it. So here are pictures, he did all the decorating--as in putting his stuff where he wants it lol









Wyatt found this at Bargain Bills and Grandma Demaree was nice enough to get it for him. It cracks me up that he got this, but hey it's his room lol




Close up of his desk with the random items he has


His nightstand


Slippers next to the bed


Wow

Look at the video below to see what Zack does whenever you say no to him when he is doing something he is not supposed to be doing.

In the video below he was pulling on a cord, I said no and immediately hit record on the camera and this is what I got.

He is 10 months old. I could not stop laughing, I mean really, he's already getting an attitude?

Must be something in the water

Wyatt's fish died this morning too. Poor guy bust into tears when I confirmed it. His fish was named Flipper, so as my Aunt Cindy said: Flipper Down!

I actually think his tail got caught in the filter and he was not strong enough to pull himself out.

We had another proper burial and after many hugs and kisses he was re-assured that he would get another fish next weekend.

So long Flipper!

So long Fishy

Lucy's pet fish, Fishy as she named him, lost his battle with life yesterday when he jumped out of his fishbowl and died. The kids found him dried and stuck to the wall.

So we gave him a proper burial. RIP Fishy

Cabin fun

We were up at the cabin this past weekend, we just went for the day but we had tons of fun!

It was raining at first so we made a trip to Bargain Bills, it's a warehouse full of random cool stuff. They have an awesome crafting section, I could have spent hours, but the kids wanted to swim. By the time we got out of Bargain Bills the weather had cleared and it was hot and muggy.

We went swimming, did some frog catching and Zack tried his first cookie. He loved it!

Zack getting ready to get in, once Mark and I got in we decided it was too cold for him.




Wyatt had just caught a frog here




First bite of a cookie. Watch his shirt as you go through the pictures, it gets messier and messier with each bite lol











Inside joke here for my mom and aunts lol


And that was our weekend!

Has it really been a week since I have blogged? Whoops!

Time has gotten away from me a lot the past few weeks.

Did you have a good weekend?

Ours was fun and relaxing, just the way they should be.

On Saturday we went to the Sibley County Fair, it's out at my mom's house. It was fun for a small town fair. We ate some good food, the kids went on a ride, and yes only 1 ride, out there the cost is $3 per ride. GULP That is very expensive, so we told them they had to pick one, they picked the jump house, which was perfect they got to jump as long as they wanted. Zack snoozed as usual lol After the fair we headed back to mom's house ate some dinner, hung out and then took the kids to a cool park. We all played tag and had a great evening!
Here is a video of Zack on the swing at the park, you can hear the race going on in the background. (my mom lives 4 blocks from the race track)
