We had a most eventful week.
My lovely hubby took Thursday and Friday off last week, and we filled every minute with fun.

Thursday we took the kids to their first Twins game.
We had some pretty sweet seats on the lower deck, 3rd base side.
I didn't bring my camera, as I didn't want to lose it, so you'll have to imagine our great view.
The kids really enjoyed the whole experience. Especially the cotton candy, cracker jack, hot dog, snow cone, and chips.
Just so the portion control police don't come to get me, we did share most of that between the four of us.
We taught them "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and they really enjoyed the 7th inning stretch standing up with everyone and singing out at the top of their lungs.

We also took the kids to see Monsters vs. Aliens.
They loved it, and we had the theatre practically to ourselves since the movie has been out for weeks. The Younger Hug-a-Bug could ask all the loud questions he liked and I didn't worry about bothering the other patrons, as they were one other mom and her 2-year-old.

The biggest news is: Thursday, while I was at work, the Elder Hug-a-Bug mastered riding her bike without training wheels!
She is overjoyed, and so are we all.
We took a family bike ride to the park and had races around the walking track. Then off to swing and dig.
Super fun.
The Elder also mastered climbing trees this week.
Whew, kind of a long post, but that is what we've been up to.


  1. The babies are getting so grown up!
    I love the up a tree picture... surrounded by flowers and so proud of herself. :)

  2. What a cutie and great job on riding that bike! Hooray!
