Smarter than the Average Bear

Fun in the sun at Jellystone in Warrens, WI. We had a great time camping with my parents and Robyn, Olivia and Connor. We played mini golf, walked a lot, rode on the Jellystone Express and played at the water park.

Roberds Lake, Faribault, MN

We tried out a new camping spot in Faribault, MN on Roberds Lake. The "older kids" liked the swings at the park. This is Corey just a swangin' with his soon-to-be brother-in-law, Jake.

We celebrated Grandpa Don's 60th birthday.

One of the camping cats was befriended by Cameron the cat-lover.

The boys used their creative skills to build a teeter totter out of firewood and a spare plank.

Just relaxing by the campfire... Gotta love Kyle's crossed-legs.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game ...

We took Coop and Kyle to their first ever Twins game. We parked at Fort Snelling and took the light rail to the Dome. We wanted to make sure they got to see a game inside before we get the new park next year.

Here we are at the Dome. It was pretty crowded outside and very hot that day.

Before we headed in to the game we had some ballpark fare. The boys love to eat so this was one of their favorite parts of the day. We sat with a former Minnesotan turned Californian who was in town to see the Angels with her twin brother who still resides in Minnesota.

And for the real fun - eating cotton candy.

The boys enjoyed their many treats from the left field foul pole. Unfortunately, we had lefties on the mound so we didn't get much action in our corner with all the right- handed batters. It was a blast and I think the boys would really like to go again - especially if they can have more cotton candy.
