While we were learning to ride our bikes, we went up to walk on the hill by our house. They put up all of these fancy "no trespassing" signs, so Daddy took our picture next to one.

Riding Bikes

Last weekend, my brother finally learned how to ride his bike. Daddy took lots of video of him riding his bike, but is having trouble posting it. Here is a picture of me on my bike to tide you over.

Our Bunny Den

The other day, Daddy noticed that there was a big hole dug in our backyard. When we all went to investigate, we found a bunny den that had four little bunnies in it.

Our New Driveway

It was an exciting week at our house. First, we had a new driveway apron put on and our driveway sealcoated.

Here is an example of when they had the driveway torn up. They also tore up the walkway to our front porch.

We were very keen on watching the action. Here is a picture of me looking out the front window.

Eventually, my baby brother came and pushed me out of the way so that he could watch.

My Comments on Pluto's Demotion

When I heard the news I asked Daddy, "That's just a joke, right?"

Twins Lose 5-0 / Sassy Boy at the Ballpark

Last night, we went to the Twins game. Before we left, I was cute and cuddly.

Here is a picture of me being cute and cuddly in my brother's car seat.

Here is a picture of my brother at the game. He was actually watching the game and trying to learn how to tell a ball from a strike.

Here I am at the game. As you can see, I was hellbent on being a sassy young man, which I was.

Needless to say, we had to leave in the 5th inning and the Twins lost 5-0 anyhow.

Reemtsma Family Vacation 2006

We just got back from Reemtsma Family Vacation (RFV) 2006. This year, we went to Kansas City. Kansas City is in a state called Missouri. Neither Cameron nor I had been to Missouri before, so we rang it up as a new state. On the first full day of vacation, we went to a place called Worlds of Fun. It's like Valley Fair, only a little bit bigger.

Here is a picture of me, Cameron and Kali on the train in Camp Snoopy.

Here is a picture of Grandpa Walter when it started to sprinkle.

When it was done raining, guess who came to visit the kids at Camp Snoopy. If you guessed Snoopy, you're right!

Snoopy also visited with Cousin Nicholas. Look at how big he is getting!

We went on lots of fun rides, like this roller coaster...

And these dune buggies...

And this boat.

The next day, we went to a place called Oceans of Fun. It's right next to Worlds of Fun. We couldn't take a lot of pictures because there was a lot of water, but Daddy did take this picture of my favorite part of the park. It was called Paradise Falls, and there was a lot of water slides that I could go down and there was water every where. It was really fun!

Today, we can home and unpacked!


Down on the Farm (Before the Vacation)

Daddy was really busy at work last week, so prior to going on the Reemtsma Family Vacation (the RFV, as we call it), Mommy, Ben and I went down to the farm to hang out with Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jayson.

One of the fun things that I got to do was ride with Uncle Jayson in his semi! He doesn't have an air bag in the front, so we strapped my car seat in the front seat and I went on a long drive with him!

I also drove around the farm on the four wheeler with Aunt Michelle.

For dinner on Saturday, we picked our own sweet corn.

We also fed some to the cows as a "science experiment." It was really neat.
