Irish Fun in Rosemount with the Thompsons


videoDave, Liesl and I traveled to Auntie Amanda and Uncle Brian and Cal's house for the weekend and we had no idea what fun was in store. We went to a Leprechaun Day celebration parade (apparently there are many Irish descendants in Rosemount) in the morning and then a dance show, a petting zoo and a bouncy room in the afternoon!!! Needless to say Liesl was actually requesting to go to sleep by 6:30 p.m. Rosemount is a surprisingly quaint little town and we have been walking all over enjoying the celebrations.

Good Ones!




I just found these photos in my mom's computer. They are from May but I had to put them on because they are so cute. Syd and Liesl were helping Nana and Papa dig and plant the new gardens at the new house. This is where Liesl first discovered the joy of worms.

Floatilla Fun!




Birthday Celebrations!







We headed up north to enjoy some time at Alicia's cabin this weekend. We celebrated Liesl's birthday with swimming and cake (she preferred the icecream). We then watched the 4th of July boat parade. Dave thought this was one of the strangest things ever. So here are a few photos for those of you who have never seen this sort of thing before. All of the people get dressed up and probably drink lots of "stuff". Then they head off around the lake gathering more and more boats to follow at a steady 5 miles per hour or so! It is a riot. My favorite float boats this year were the Mexican Fiesta boat (for the 4th of July, hmmmm?) And then to top it off there was the boat with a man dressed in complete army fatigues and sitting behind a camoflauge blind shooting his b.b.gun in the air. Amusing? Frightening? I am not sure!

Superior Little Lady Turns 2!!!!!





Wow. What an amazing 2 years. Liesl is so full of life and laughter, and tears but mostly laughter. We are all enjoying the whirlwind of learning and testing that goes along with growing up. Liesl loves to go to the park and usually asks to go swinging and sliding the moment she wakes up in the morning (usually 5:30 a.m.). She also is in love with bugs and worms, but still really loves dresses and pink and purple. So we have requested that Nana make a worm shaped cake for our little b-day gathering (gluten free of course). I can't imagine what we ever did before Liesl, and I love that!!!!

Girls who Hike!






Fun times at the river! My girlfriends and Liesl's girlfriends, Erin, Isla, Erin and Esmae, Liesl and I all went for a little creek walk and dip in the coooooold water. It was fairly short lived due to the bugs. Then back to the yard for some playtime! We are having a great summer in our new house.
