September Softball and Scrappin'

We are trying to squeeze as much fun as we can into these last few remaining summer days! Ryan is on a softball team now (that's him catching above), so we began the fun by going to one of his games. Luckily, Ryan happens to be on this team with Grandpa Rich and Uncle Andy, so we got to see them play, too, AND hang out with Grandma Gwen, Cousin Matilda, Aunt Stephanie, and Cousin Alex during the game.
Grandma Gwen brought us some delicious raspberries from her yard - yum! We also loved running in the empty soccer field with Alex. So adorable!
We then took yet another trip to the MN Zoo (we are trying to use our membership as much as humanly possible). The girls rode the monorail for the first time ever and had a great time seeing the animals from this new perspective. And this past weekend was my personal favorite September event: Scrapbooking in Wabeno! I joined my friend Amanda, her mom Lynn, her sister Teri, and about 14 other wonderful women for a girls weekend away. We stayed at The Crystal Bell Inn & Spa in Wabeno and had a marvelous time relaxing, pampering, and of course, scrapbooking. I mean, seriously,
look at how much fun we're having! It was awesome and a great break from taking care of the girls (poor Ryan had them all weekend, but don't worry - he survived). I even made a scrapbook of the girls' first year, which I'm glad to finally have. Only 361 more days until Wabeno 2010 - I can't wait!
