    Memorial Day Memories

    Tuesday, May 29, 2007

    We just had an exhausting, but very fun weekend!! Grandma and Grandpa Andrews came up to visit Friday night and then Uncle Joe, Auntie Jen and AJ came down on Saturday. Mike and Joe ran the Med City Half Marathon Sunday morning and both ran faster than they had expected! We hung out with everyone all weekend with nice weather, it was great! We have some pictures on our Flickr site that we took and I also included some of the pictures from Mom and Dad because they were just too good!!

    Our adorable nephew, AJ, is a musical talent! Here he is singing Neil Diamond's
    "Song Sung Blue," this child is amazing!!

    We spent our last weekend visiting Mike's family in Menasha, Wisconsin. We stayed with Mike's godparents, Aunt Loretta and Uncle Harold, and were joined by Grandma and Grandpa Schmitt for the trip. Benjamin's Great Aunt Monica, cousins Kevin and Brenda, their significant others and kids also came out for a barbecue and trip to the zoo on Saturday. Benjamin had a great time playing with his cousins, Tristan and Austin!! We had fun going to the N.E.W. Zoo in Green Bay, as you can see in our new photos on the Flickr account. Only another month before Benjamin turns 2!! We can hardly believe that the time is almost here, yet when we see how much he is growing and learning everyday, it seems very real.

    Memorial Day Weekend is in a few days. Mike and his brother Joe are gearing up to run the half marathon at the Med City Marathon on Sunday. Grandma and Grandpa Andrews are also coming up for the weekend to hang out with us and we are very much looking forward to having a relaxing weekend here with everyone!

    Mother's Day

    Monday, May 14, 2007

    For Mother's Day, I decided that it would be fun to take Benjamin to the brand new Curious George exhibit at the Minnesota Children's Museum, so the three of us trekked up to the Twin Cities Sunday afternoon. We ate an awesome lunch in the Marketplace of the St. Paul Macy's, which is right down the street from the museum. Then we spent a couple of hours running around all of the exhibits (I'm not sure who had more fun, us or Benjamin!). After the museum, we drove to Midtown Global Market, where they have many many different ethnic food stalls, grocery stores and other things for sale. We picked up some amazing food and then headed over to Izzy's Ice Cream in St. Paul for our dessert...YUM! It was a wonderful day and we were able to visit 3 places that we have always wanted to go to, but never had the chance! Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! I hope your day was as fantastic as mine...

    Here is a video of Benjamin and I making a music video at the museum...

    We visited Grandma and Grandpa Andrews this last weekend in Illinois. We had a great time and we were able to spend a little time with some of my aunts/uncles/cousins. Benjamin became completely infatuated with Grandpa's guitars and here is a video of him showing off his music talents. Just an fyi: in case you don't yet know, he has taken to calling both of his Grandmas "Ahma" and his Grandpas "Ahmpa." My Mom filmed this video and that's why he yells out "Ahma!" at the end. What a ham!

    I should also have some pictures posted later today from the past couple of weeks.
