Random highlights from a weekend in July

In preparation for our trip to Slovakia this fall (have I mentioned how excited I am?!) I've been practicing with the video camera. Here is a quick view into this weekend's activities:

Can you hear me now?

(Note to Grandpas U and P - this video was shot before the great garage shelving project!)

Does it need new batteries?

Last night Soren and I were out walking and we came across a grasshopper.
Soren: What’s that, mom?
Me: That is a grasshopper. Grasshoppers like to hop, hop, hop.
Soren: What is he doing?
Me: He’s taking a break.
Soren: Oh, does he need new batteries?

Then later I told him that we are going to Slovakia for vacation (we are!) He seemed to think about it for a few minutes and then went over to look through our photo album. After a few minutes of flipping through pictures of our previous vacations he had this thoughtful, puzzled look and said “Mama? I don’t know Slovakia.” I guess he’d been trying to find a picture of it and thought it should be in with the pictures of our previous vacations!

Back from Vacation

Well, we've been MIA from blogging for awhile. We just got back from a fabulous trip to visit family up in Canada.

We went fishing...

Admired the stunning views...

Played at the beach...

Road Grandpa's quads...


And got dirty at Grandpa's saw mill...


We even visited the gazebo where we got married...


It was a fantatic vacation!

Soren's big goal

Funny Soren conversation:

Grandma was watching Soren eat a ton of watermelon.

Soren: I'm eating it so I get bigger and bigger.
Grandma: Why do you want to get bigger?
Soren: So I can reach the crackers!
