A Visit from Adrian

You might remember Adrian from our visit to Mexico a few years ago. He was in town and spent the night with us. All we could manage was a photo of the three of us wrestling.

My Last Soccer Game - Kids vs. Parents

My last soccer game was today, versus the parents. We found out it really wasn't my last game, as I have a make up tomorrow, but we still played the parents today.

It was a little crowded. See if you can find me and Mommy.

Mommy started out in goal, as one of the parents six goalies.

Here I am in the middle of one of our many scoring opportunities.

Cameron watched the whole game with Grandma.

Grandma took this neat picture of me, Mommy and Cameron during a water break.

Mommy took this neat picture of me and Grandma, celebrating the kids victory.
In the end, we won 25-3.

Last T-Ball Game of the Season: Kids vs. Parents

We had the last t-ball game of the season tonight. This is a picture of me and my friend Brandon before introductions.

Here I am showboating during the introductions.

The kids got to bat first, so Daddy took the field. He was one of four shortstops.

Here I am up to bat. Not only did I get on base, I ended up scoring shortly thereafter.

In the end, we beat the parents 82-1.

A Round of Par Golf

Tonight, I finally shot par for a round of golf on the Wii! Normally, I'm +15 or so for three holes, so this is big!


Star Wars T-Shirt Day 2008

You might recall a similar picture from 2007. This time, it took us three tries to get it right.

No one knows what to call this.


Grandma Diane Does T-Ball

Grandma Diane came to my t-ball game tonight. Here she is with Cameron.

Here I am during introductions.

Here I am at my first at bat. I hit really well tonight.

I made it on base every time.

Our Visit to Three Bears Resort / Jellystone Park

We visited the Three Bears Resort and Jellystone Park in Warrens, Wisconsin this week for the Reemtsma Family Vacation 2008. We rented two villas, pictured below, which we called "villians."

They had a lot of space. We slept up in the loft area with Mom and Dad and everyone else slept down by where Grandpa and Great Grandma Martha are sitting (or in the bedrooms under the loft).

There was lots to do as well. Cameron rode the paddleboats with Mom and Dad while Ben miniature golfed with Grandpa and the cousins.

We also had bedtime stories with Boo Boo the Bear.

We spent a lot of our time here, at the indoor water park. We were also at the outdoor water parks and the beach, but it got hot and sunny and that drove us indoors.

Mostly, we spent a lot of time with our cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents and Great Grandma Martha.

Rolling on Two Wheels

I am up and rolling on two wheels now and my baby brother is up and riding on four! These pictures don't do our rolling fury justice, but we'll have to wait a bit for the video.

Pierre Bottineau Parade

Maple Grove Days started tonight with the Pierre Bottineau Parade. We went with our friends Jack and Samantha.

Here is a picture of the two of us at the start of the parade. We had already been stickered politically by then.

And here we are at 10:30pm, when we got home from the parade with our many, many bags of candy, beads, hats and trinkets of junk.

T-Ball Games Have Started

T-ball games started tonight. We (the Red Rockets) played the White Lightening. My friend Caleb even came to watch me play. Here is a picture of Mom, Cameron and Caleb.

Here I am warming up with my teammates.

Here I am during team introductions.

I got a hit every time I was up to bat.

Here I am on base.

I think we won the game, but the coaches don't really keep score.

Star Wars: Where Science Meets Sassy Boys

We went to see the Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit at the Minnesota Science Museum yesterday.

Right when you get in, there was a section of magnetic levitation. We built a lego ship that floated on magnetic rails. We also got to ride a space ship that floated on air.

There were a lot of spaceship models that we could see and they had some amazing detail.

We also got our pictures next to a lot of costumes and droids. We were much smaller than everyone and everything, except for Artoo-Detoo, Anakin Skywalker as a boy and of course, Yoda.

After a meltdown in the souvenir shop, we saw some of the rest of the museum. We got to see some dinosaur skeletons and we both got to pilot a tug boat on the Mississippi.

It was pretty neat, but Mommy and Daddy thought we were pretty naughty.
