Happy Father's Day

We had a really fun father's day weekend! Friday, Nick and Ang and the Girls and Brandon came up and we went to the ski show, which was a lot of fun. Afterwards we went to the new playground and Gavin got to go on the swings and down the slide! Lauren liked the spritzer and Ellie couldn't get enough of the slide - it was a lot of fun! The girls even helped me give Gavin his bath and get him ready for bed - such good helpers! I was supposed to work all weekend, but I ended up getting put on call, so I got to spend Sunday afternoon with my dad. And FINALLY Gavin started crawling! It was pretty exciting to see - he just finally figured it out! Now of course he is all over the place, and starting to get much faster at it. Last night we went to St. Cloud to pick out Bryan's gifts - there was no way I was even going to attempt to pick out the golf club he wanted. After shopping we drove through St. Ben's - which was kind of fun - but sad at the same time. It made me want to go back to school! I'm counting down the days to this weekend - we get to go wedding dress shopping for Krista!!!

Fun in the sun!

We are thouroughly enjoying the nice warm weather we have been having! Gavin's favorite things to do are sit on the patio with a book, play in the grass with Rigley, go for walks, and he just discovered the lake! We went out to the cabin last weekend and he went for his first little dip in the water - he loved it! Next time I'll actually bring his suit and we can get all the way in. We've been walking to the beach almost every day too. Gavin also has started at his new daycare center. He gets to go and play two days a week, and so far it's been working out really well. Although it was a difficult transition for mom, he seems to be enjoying it. They do fun activities everyday, and he gets to be around other babies his age. Overall, we've had a really good start to our summer!
