Thought I would put up some pictures from our June trip to the lake.
Mary and Russell get all wet
Mary forces a smile in classic fashion
And as usual, Russell is always ready with a pose…
I’m going to post some more, hopefully this week. We got a zoo trip, our new truck, a trip I took with the Civil Air Patrol…
Since the heat index is supposed to get to 105 today we tried to get the kids to burn off some energy early at Pump it Up.
Mary loves the slide and Russell spent a lot of time in the boxing ring. Not sure if he won the bout or not…
Once again Mary shows Dad up. Pink ultralight always gets the bass.
We love to fish! Thanks to Grampa Berg for the use of his boat.
The annual August fishing trip was a blast! Thanks in no small part to Grampa’s new boat and his very fancy gps trolling motor.
Here we are on one of the many stops along the way in Garrison, MN. This is the statue of a walleye along the shore of Mille Lacs. The picture is accurate, so if you are thinking it doesn’t seem to be the same color as the last walleye you caught on Mille Lacs, you are right.
Grampa came up on Sunday and went fishing with us for a couple hours. He ended up with the biggest fish for the weekend (on my secret bait).
Can’t wait to get up there again!
Both the Berg parents have gotten new jobs on the other side of the Twin Cities, so we’re on the move!
Mary seems pretty excited, so we hope the house sells quickly. Check it out and other listings on our broker’s page at Edina Realty (Pete Mergens).
Mary went trick-or-treating with our neighbor Noah. Quite a combination with Snow White and Darth Vader.
They were both very good about saying “trick or treat” and saying thank you. They had lots of fun together.
Russell Theodore Berg was born on November 9, 2005. He was 7 lbs, 4 oz and 19.5 in.
He is a little guy with lots of BIG grunts. I say he is going to be a tennis player because he grunts so much. We are enjoying spending time with him and getting to know him.
Mary got these princess jammies just before she turned 2 years old. She likes the Snow White story a lot!!
Mary walks around saying “I’m a princess.” We think she is a cutie patootie.
Reminder: More photos on our flickr site. Including Mary’s birthday party.
Mary’s favorite thing to do seems to be running. Usually with her arms flailing in the air.
This was taken at the Minnesota Zoo a couple of months ago. Most of the day was spent chasing her around and listening to her point and say “animals!” as best she could. We love the Zoo!
Two months without a post? Sheesh! I am not doing a very good job for the two people who read this.
Anyhoo… we spent a great couple of hours in Downtown Northfield tonight, including having dinner at Hogan Brothers, the best sandwich shop around.
And we went for a walk along the river down behind some of the downtown restaurants.
Make sure you check out the new pics on our flickr site.
Hopefully I’ll do a better job of putting more stuff up here. Enjoy!
