4th of July--A little late of course

I just realized I never posted any pics from the 4th of July. Oops

To be fair it was 3 days after my Grandpa passed and we had family in town and were getting things ready, so I just sort of forgot about it until now

We went to downtown St.Paul and parked on top of a hospital parking ramp. It was a cool idea, there wasn't that many people, the kids could run, we got some White Castles and waited for the show to start! Once they started our view was fab and we will be going back next year! Here are some pictures from that night, enjoy!

Yep, that's the only picture I got of the fireworks. I only brought my tiny point and shoot camera and it just isn't made to take great pics at night and of fireworks. Next year I will have my tri-pod and my fabulous Cannon SLR.

A nap is a nap

Lately Zack has been down to one nap a day. It's been a bit of adjustment for me mostly, but I think for him too, he is going to bed earlier but also waking up earlier.

Doesn't he know it's summer time? This is sleep in time for mommy! I suppose I will have to pass that memo along to him...

Anyways getting back on track Zack has been falling asleep in random places and it's oh so cute! Mainly it's the couch, but he has been known to fall asleep on the floor too

Here are some of his sleeping positions that he has done recently

Beach fun!

It's the middle of summer here in Minnesota, which means it's hot and humid. Ick, but tonight we tried to make the best of it and took the kids to the beach. We knew it was closed to swimming as the water is so low, but we wanted to let the kids walk around and goof around, after the past 2 weeks they needed it

Sad news

I am sad to tell you all that my Grandpa Rodger passed away on July 1st. He was like a dad to me and it has been very hard on me and my family.

He was a great man and we are all very sad he is gone

Missing you a lot Grandpa, hoping you and Everett are having a blast up in Heaven!
