Spring into Summer

Checking out Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis with a spring-time hike.

Finn had a bowling birthday party with a couple friends (and family).

Julia had some art displayed at the River Falls Public Library (next to her shoulder).

For Mother's Day, the kids made Amanda breakfast in bed and presented her with cards. Skippy attentively watched the card presentation. I'm sure it had nothing to with the food sitting in front of her.

Each spring at Westside is a day of end-of-the-year outdoor activities and competitions. It's a time of hanging out with buddies and participating with your class. Julia did well and won the hula hoop competition - video evidence. Both Julia and Finn participated in the three-legged race with friends (more video evidence linked on their names).

We always get a state park pass since we have two nice state parks close to us. We took a hike at Kinnickinnic State Park and walked down to the St. Croix River. The hill back up is much larger than it looks in the picture!

Julia crossed over in Girl Scouts from being a Junior to a Cadet.

We took the kids to their first Twins game at the end of the school year (and our first time at Target Field).

There was a great fireworks after the game. I wonder how we looked during the fireworks...
