Come Wednesday on my vacation, uncle Derek and auntie Chris had to leave and return to the big bad city. It was sad to see them go, but what are ya gonna do? Just some quiet reflection by the lake, and then headed out to the bar for some pull tabs, and I was all better.
The next day, just to shake things up and add some fresh blood to the mix, Brookie and Jerrid showed up! We continued with lots of fishing. I swear all we did was eat and fish. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I love to fish. That, and sometimes I like to do hair, but that's another story altogether.
After swimming and fishing all day, the evenings were filled getting tucked up on the couch, settling in to watch the Olympics, and having Grandma feed me ice cream. Sometimes its nice to be doted on. Admit it! Wanna see my toes? Here!
We left on Saturday, but not before a very fancy breakfast at Burger King. Hey, they have a play area, I love it! Thank you to G&GE for a great week of fun. It went by way too fast, but we're already looking forward to next year!

As planned I got to go fishing with my daddy and my grandpa as much as I wanted. We spent time looking at lily pads, eating out, and of course running. As usual, even up nort', we had to fight off the paparazzi after I spent the day showing off my mad hoop skills. There were bears playing tennis. And Daddy even took me on a paddle boat ride.
That should do ya for today, and that covers about half of the vacation. Tomorrow I'll let you in on the second half.

Today is the last day before we head out on vacation! I have to help Daddy go pick up the boat, then gas 'er up, and then wash it. Mom is in charge of laundry and packing. She always gets stuck with the boring jobs. I'm very excited to get away for awhile. Just to get out of the city, get away from the phone and the computer will do us all a lot of good. Which reminds me to tell you posting will either be right on track or this maybe one of the last ones. I'm not sure if they have WiFi at the resort.
Just in case, I would like to send out a few shout outs to acknowledge some event that I'll miss while I'm gone: Happy birthday to auntie Shally on Sunday, beautiful lady. Happy birthday to Mom's friend Dan R. on Wednesday, we're happy to have you back in MN, we must lunch soon. Last but not least on Thursday is my bestest friend P-MAN's birthday! Dude, we'll totally party when I get back.
Have a good one everybody, we'll chat soon, GO USA!!
Like white on rice,

Just because I'm two now, and a big boy (I'll be the first to tell you that I am NOT a baby), doesn't mean I don't like to still sleep with my bottom in the air. Because I do, and I love it.
Don't bend over in the shower to pick up the soap,

This week we're preparing for our annual vacation up nort' in Brainerd. There's lots of organizing and shopping and both of my parents have that "Pre-vacation Buzz." I've never seen two people so checked out of everyday life and ready for vacation. I personally can't wait to go fishing with my daddy and my grandpa. It's all I can talk about. And, don't tell Mom but I've been playing in the sand box at school with NO SHOES OR SOCKS ON. I can't wait to show off.
Let 'er rip,

If you know me, you know I love tractors. On the way to our vacation, Mom told me there was a tractor on the farm and that she thought I could probably ride it if I wanted too. Well, I yelled "YAY" as soon as I heard this news. I kept telling everyone that I was going to ride on the tractor. Well, when push came to shove, there was no way in h-e-double hockey sticks you were going to get me on that tractor. Patrick rode it, Lucy rode it, and Frannie rode it. But not me. I've dealt with it, and I'm OK with it...now.
I then decided to go swimming, because I knew I could excel at that. Maybe they are all expert tractor riders, but I can swim. When I say everyone went swimming, I mean everyone went swimming. After that we went back to running. We did a lot of running that weekend. And we did a lot of "Attack of Molly!" We collected a few bugs and then we found a frog! It was really gross and slimy, but I kind of liked it.
That about wraps up the weekend. I would like to send a special shout out to Mama and Papa McMahon for their hospitality and letting us wreck their home. We had such fun, and hopefully we can do it again next year!
Movers and shakers,

The first afternoon we arrived on the farm in SD, we started out doing a lot of front porch sitting and rocking chair rocking. There was so much to do and nothing to do all at the same time. I found myself just running because I could and there was nothing but space. We checked out the rocks in the yard. We tackled each other. We all got to eat together, and we got to eat outside which is one of my most favorite things to do. After all that, boy did I sleep well. Good thing, because the next day was jam packed with country livin'.
Finer than frogs hair,
This weekend I spent some time country livin' with my cousins and friends. We had an amazing, fun filled weekend that I can't begin to explain in only one post. So, I will fill you in on our adventures this week. For now I leave you with this great photo...can't wait to look at this again when we're all teenagers.
