Judy's Cabin 2010

Henry's becoming quite the traveler! Joey and I packed up the kids and headed to Judy's Cabin on Sunday for four days of sun, food, screaching children, and the best beach in MN. Henry did great, sleeping both on the trip up and the trip home. Natalie was entertained by grandpa Kent's portable DVD player that we tied to the back of Joey's seat. While there, Natalie, Emilia and Evelyn barely stopped to breathe, running from one activity to the next. Henry slept most of the time, allowing me to have some great beach time, and baby Charlie is itching to start crawling. Linda, Karin and I went into Pequot Lakes on Monday night for bingo, and we all left winners. I won $45, Karin and Linda also won some cash -- in fact all the ladies at our table won a game. It was pretty fun! We don't know how many more years we have to spend a week at Judy's, but we're thankful for the time we have! It's beautiful! These pics are from our little point and shoot -- as soon as I get copies of Alana's fancy camera work, I'll post more pics!

5 weeks

It's been a while since we wrote, but we're plugging away! Natalie's keeping us busy, riding her bike, giving her baby a walk, going in the pool, to the splash pad, to the wading pool, reading books, it doesn't end! She's also starting to embrace her role as big sister. And since Henry's getting so big, I'm not nearly as nervous with her climbing up on the couch to talk to him and try to get him to smile. He had one shining moment of smiles today, but I can't get it with the camera yet. Soon I'm sure he'll be smiling and giggling a lot! Natalie's also doing her best with potty training -- we have more accidents than successes right now, but she's learning pretty quick! I can't wait until I have only one in diapers!
