Slip'N'Slide Fun

How much fun can 4 kids have on a Sunday afternoon with a piece of landscape plastic and a sprinkler? Tons of FUN!! Mom and Dad were tired out from the Warrior Dash the day before so we decided to hang out at home in the sun with the kids. Dad set up the pool and slip and slide for some good cheap fun.

This is why we were tired....
What is Warrior Dash???
"Warrior Dash is the ultimate event for thrill-seeking athletes. This 5k race is held on the most demanding and unique terrain from around the world. Participants will take on intense obstacles, and celebrate their feat with music, beer, and muddy shorts!"
The race was held at Afton Alps Ski Resort. It was a lot of fun, but really hard. The hills were killer, but I survived! 
Happy Summer everyone! I hope you are having just as much fun as we are:)

My Soccer Star

Autumn finally found something she really truly enjoys! SOCCER...she loves it. She had a great year playing traveling for the first time in U10. It took us all the way from Red Wing to Hugo this summer. She was blessed with having the same coach for the last few years, he pushes them to be their best and is great at getting them to push themselves. Her favorite place to be is in the goal, she must take after her mom because I loved being goalie as a kid in Ringette's (like girls hockey, before girls hockey...yes I am that old LOL)

Check her out in action!

Happy 4th a little late...

We had a relaxing wonderful fourth of July. We didn't have any major plans other than to hang out with the little kids. Autumn spent the weekend with her dad, so we only had the little kids. We made a trip to the drive in with cousins to see Cars 2, swam at St. Mary's Point and hung out at Grandma and Grandma's. It was a great weekend!
 Brecken loves the beach but I have to make him wear a life jacket because he is a little brave for me.
 This was when Hudson finally got brave and got off my lap. He is not a huge fan of the beach. He doesn't like the sand on his hands and everywhere else for that matter. He likes to be clean. As you can see his sister loves it and covers herself in sand:)
This was the second time to the beach this week and he still didn't warm up to the idea for at least a hour. I love the beach so I am going to keep working on him...he will like eventually right?

The rest of the weekend was spent at the Farm. Grandpa even set up a tent for the kids to sleep in. Uncle Tom was kind enough to stay out there with them. 

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and week! I know we did. Next time I will have to remember to use my camera when I bring it. These are all the pictures I took all weekend.

The begining of a great summer....

Summer is in full swing. We are having a blast with water balloons, beaches, parks and so on....oh yeah and don't forget the sports! Here are a few pics of the kids enjoying summer. I will post more later when I have a chance.
All ready for T-ball.

Hey! Check out my water balloon!
All tuckered out sleeping in the hallway. Summer is tiring.
