    We made it through our whirlwind weekend! We flew down to Chicago early Friday morning and spent the day hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Andrews. Saturday morning was Stephanie's high school graduation from Fenwick and her party followed. After the party, we drove back to Minnesota with G&G A. and arrived at about 12:30pm. Mike got up Sunday morning and ran a 2 person relay in the Med City Marathon in 90 degree heat! G&G A. left Monday afternoon after a very long and exciting weekend. We had such a great time seeing family on Sunday! Benjamin even met his Great Uncle Steve from California for the first time!

    G&G A bought him a blowup pool which we ALL used on the hot day we had on Sunday! Benjamin loved splashing around and playing with his beach ball. He is getting SIX new teeth in right now so as you can expect, he has some touchy moments. We are all looking forward to his big birthday bash in just ONE month!! Eeek!

    A bunch of new pictures are online on Flickr...

    Well, I have finally gotten around to uploading photos from the past few weeks, so those are now on flickr. I had a great Mother's Day yesterday with my two guys...they are the best! Hope everyone is well!

    Happy Family

    Family Portrait 5/6/06

    We are enjoying the nice weather lately with swinging on Benjamin's swing and playing with the neighbors. Benjamin is quite fond of the swing but isn't too into the slide just yet when he goes on it by himself.

    He is crawling everywhere and it is just a joy to see him explore new things! He loves to come find Mom and Dad when we are in the kitchen and laughs the whole way. About two weeks ago Benjamin advanced to eating table foods exclusively. Of course, he hasn't yet given up his beloved bottles, but he is using a sippy cup more and more everyday. He loves to feed himself and doesn't really like being fed at all. He eats so well at daycare, they have said that he is their best eater! This Monday he begins his transition to the Infant 2 room at daycare. He will now be in a room with babies that can crawl and most of them can walk. We're hoping he can pick up their good habits!

    We had portraits taken on Saturday of this weekend. They turned out quite good, so here is a sneak preview. Proofs of all of the pictures are on our flickr site.
