Three Little Monkey's

014, originally uploaded by MAFlaa.

Today the weather in North Dakota was absolutely perfect! We sat outside and the kids played ~ boy do they have endless amounts of energy.

The kids have requested grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner? Doesn't seem appropriate for the weather, but whatever. For dessert I am trying a new recipe - Chocolate Banana Bread. I found the recipe @ www.joyofbaking.com. If you get a chance, check out that awesome baking website.

Life is Good!

Most of the time I'm smiling but lately I've been a little naughty...I'm not sure why. Mom & Dad say it's a good thing I'm cute or I think I'd be in a lot of trouble.

Soaking up some sun!

Baseball, Baseball and MORE Baseball!

Mike & I got married in July....right in the heart of baseball season. Shortly after our wedding, I came to find out that he liked to WATCH baseball, especially the Minnesota Twins. And do you know what? Baseball is on EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT...or so it seemed to me. *SIGH*

Who would've known that almost 12 years later - I have come to really like baseball, I even watch it on TV.

And this little guy (well he's not so little anymore) - LIVES FOR BASEBALL! How very fun it is for all of us to watch him. He's the catcher and he loves it.

Up to bat....
...he got a hit and made it on to base...he's thinking...Life is Good!

I don't think that Kennedy has ever sat and watched a baseball game - she usually finds the playground and makes her own fun!

And then there is Ryley and his big cousin Lacy...I don't think they watched the game either...they were also busy making their own fun!

It is so fun when you are in the right place at the right time and your subject is cooperating.

Kennedy's 1st Piano Recital

Kennedy's 1st Piano Recital, originally uploaded by MAFlaa.

On Sunday, May 31st, Kennedy had her very 1st Piano Recital. She was a basket full of nerves, but she did great. Her songs were: Yankee Doodle (a duet with Mrs. Viland), Jack and the Beanstalk and Ode to Joy.

Kennedy, you are a natural at the piano and we love to listen to you play!

Lucky is the new baby calf at my mom & dad's house. This was Mother's Day and my little Ryley buns loves to help feed Lucky! Ryley and his cousin's (Keagan & Kasen) were able to watch Lucky being born via c-section.

***Wow...I can't believe I haven't posted anything since January! I will try to do a much better job at updating this website."
