My Birthday




My birthday was on Saturday and once again Magnolia and David treated me like a queen! We went to Boulder and walked around in the morning and had some Indian food for lunch. When we got home David surprised me and sent me off to an afternoon at the spa... so relaxing!!! After that Scott, Heidi and Will came over so that we could go to a concert in our neighborhood and let the kids dance the night away. I am pretty sure the day could not have been any more perfect! Magnolia loved helping me open my gifts. She was SO excited when I opened up the card from her and her present. She got me a pink Minnesota Twins visor that works perfect when we go to the pool. How did she ever know that I have wanted one of those for about 6 years now? She must have an amazing daddy who let her in on the secret! :)

Tiny Town






Earlier this week Kate and I took Magnolia, Bella and Sofi to a fun little place called Tiny Town. The girls got to explore little buildings that were just their size, play at a fun playground, have a picnic and even ride a train! Magnolia had such a great time playing around. The highlight for her was the train ride. The train had a steam engine so she got a little scared when the whistle would blow and steam would come out but after she got over that she had a blast. I think she is now officially ready for an engineer hat!

First corn of the season





Magnolia had sweet corn for the first time last night. It took her a bit to figure out how to eat. She thought we were a bit crazy plopping this big ol' thing on her plate and telling her it is yummy! I dont think she loves corn but definitely had fun picking at it!

Fountains With Bella





Yesterday Magnolia and I went to play in some fountains with Kate and Bella. Magnolia was so excited to go she could hardly stand it. As we were driving there Magnolia was very quiet and then all the sudden she said "Mamma hat!!!" I looked in my rear-view mirror to see my child wearing a (clean!) swim diaper on her head. She was so proud of herself and laughed and laughed when I looked at her. Good thing I had my camera along to capture the cuteness! While we were waiting for the fountains we went and hung out at the library for a bit. Magnolia found a new book about a raccoon that she just loved. I think I will be ordering it from Amazon tonight! After the library it was off for some fountain fun!

Friends from Minnesota




We had some friends come and visit us this week from Minnesota. First we had Jon and his wife Heather and then James (or Jame as Magnolia called him) came the next night. It was great to see some long lost faces and Magnolia did her absolute best to charm the socks off them all!

Flogstad Family Visits Colorado



We were lucky enough to have one of my brothers and his family visit us last week from Minnesota. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun we had! Magnolia just adored her cousins! They played with her, picked out her outfits and Lindsay even changed diapers! I was kind of hoping they would stay the rest of the summer!!! :) We had such a wonderful time showing them around Colorado. We went to Boulder, Copper Mountain, Water World and of course went swimming in our neighborhood pool and spent lots of time just hanging out.
Thank you Flogstad family for taking time to come out and visit. It really meant the world to us that you would come! We loved having you and appreciate everything!
