A Visit From Mark, Mel and Madelyn

This past weekend we had a lovely visit from Mark, Mel and Madelyn.  They arrived on Saturday and waiting for their arrival was so hard for the boys.  Eventually Odin and Bjorn decided to build a fort and that helped pass the time.

Once they arrived, lots of fun was had!  The weather was a bit rainy, but that didn't stop us too much.  We rode bikes, did some archery...

 Went swimming!!  Well SOME went swimming!

 We did acrobatics over MOMMA!!!  That blur going over Momma's belly is Odin!

And a very special treat...we watched Star Wars.

And Bjorn hung with Uncle Mark as much as he possible could!

Fall Garden

Our garden has been so lovely and with the help of Lynna and Luca it has stayed relatively weed-free.  Right now our sweet potatoes are growing like mad!  We also have carrots, beets, kale, collards, broccoli and some summer veggies hanging on...

The sweet potatoes are in the back corner climbing up the fence:-)  The carrots are in the row just up from them and across from the carrots are the other fall veggies.

Grandpa's Home

Grandpa took a trip to NJ last week and we all missed him.  The kids were happy to see him and play legos!

All the way around Lake Johnson

To celebrate the end of the school week, on Friday, we hiked ALL THE WAY AROUND LAKE JOHNSON with Lynna and Luca. Now, this wasn't a major accomplishment for Odin and Luca (they probably covered twice the distance as they raced back and forth and explored new trails), but for Momma is was BIG.  She was carrying Bjorn for the majority of the hike and Bjorn now weights 30+ pounds!  Whew, tired Momma at the end!!!

Notice Bjorn doesn't leave home without his cell phone, calculator and STICK!  See the objects around his waste...
 The boys (not Bjorn too) crossed the water without using the bridge!  Momma had to hold her breath...
