Gus turns 3!

(and, Sonja turns 34, but who's counting!!)

We had a great time celebrating Gus' 3rd birthday in Forest Lake and in Minneapolis. Gus tried peanut butter for the first time at Gramma and Grampa's place. He had to wait until he was 3!!

The Cabin with Good Friends

Gus, Johan and Sonja headed up to Sugar Lake to spend time with good friends, Lillie and Jenny Hokanson and Julia and Steph Bowron.

As you can see from the pictures, the kids had a great time together. Gus and Julia are about 5 months apart in age (around 3 yrs). They loved playing Caribou and swimming together. They also enjoying doing 'slipper slides,' which usually ended in lots of giggles. Johan and Lillie are only a month apart in age (around 1 yr). They enjoyed looking at each other and racing to get toys (especially the walker). Both babes are getting very close to walking!!

The adults had fun as well, but no pictures were taken. Walking, talking and playing Sequence were our main forms of entertainment when the kiddies weren't keeping us busy.

Bike Trip

Sonja went on a bike trip with some of her college friends. They biked around Lanesboro and enjoyed lots of laughs along the way. Another highlight was tubing the Root River one hot afternoon.

Forest History Center

We spent a week at the cabin and we had many adventures. We went with MorMor and Papa to the Forest History Center near Grand Rapids. It was fun to sit in the trucks and visit the old logging camp.

We learned that in the year 1900 there were so many trees cut down in MN that you could have built a nine foot wide path all of the way around the equator! Next year we want to visit the "LOST 40." Forty acres of land that was not logged because the surveyors missed it -- our lucky mistake.

Crazy to Camp??

We headed to Taylors Falls for our first ever family camping trip. We enjoyed views on the St. Croix, ice cream cones, a campfire, and being silly in the tent. It took a lot of work to get there, but it was worth it. Gus and Johan are ready to try it again....are we??

Joe Krasean

Kip's cousin, Joe Krasean, stopped by our house to hang out one recent afternoon. It was fun to catch up with him and hear about life in New Mexico. We're hoping he moves back to the Twin Cities at some point. Gus and Johan enjoyed having him around.

4th of July

Gus and Johan had a great time in Forest Lake at the parade. Both cousins, Addy and Ellie, were there to help celebrate. Johan had a great time playing on the beach at Forest Lake Later in the day. The fireworks were too loud for Gus this year and they did not disturb Johan's sleep at all....maybe next year.
