This is Dave and you can kindof see the speedometer on the right above Curt's head.
It makes a great spectator sport.
Then we went to the park and played.
We played catch and frisbee. All the "men" on the swings.
Matty and Nils thinkin' they're tough. Curtis, my Dad's BFF came to visit from Florida.
Happy Father's Day to the 2 best Dad's in my life. First, my own Dad. You are the best dad a gal could ask for. I am lucky that we have always been great friends, especially during my teen years when I probably needed it the most. Maybe I need it the most now, hmmm. Love you, Pops!
And to Dave, the Dad of my kids. I love watching you with our kids. They have so much fun with you and I especailly love that you teach them all about anything and everything. Because of you, their little minds are filled with new things everyday. Tol & Addi are so lucky to have you as their papa. We love you!
You have filled mama and daddy's last 4 years with more love and joy than we could have ever imagined!
We are so proud of you and are blown away with all you do and learn everyday.
You are the BEST big brother. Addi loves her "Bobo" so much. We all love watching you interact with her.
We love you, bug. Happy 4th Birthday!
Nils had never met his new niece, Addison. Addi took a liking to her Uncle Nils right away. She just wanted him to hold her, and Nils didn't want to let her go, either. It was cute. He also came home to "FREEZING" 61 degree weather. He's used to the upper 90's with high humidity- YUCK!
After the tour of the house, Nils sat us all down and gave us gifts from Brazil. Below is a pic of Addi with the dress Nils brought her. Anyway, as he was doing so, Curt was sitting by his suitcase and jumped back 10 feet suddenly. Nils brought home a dead cockroach. NASTY! Since Dave wasn't able to be there thanks to a big test, Nils wrapped up the 6 legger and gave it to Dave when he got to my parents. It was Hilarious! Dave is such a wuss when it comes to "6 or 8 leggers."
All I can say is I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to have Nils home. I love him so much and am so proud of him and the work he's been doing.
and, Thanks for your help with the dishes, Addi!

We signed up Tolman for swimming lessons @ Marv Jensens (oh the memories). First class down and he really liked it, until it came time to the lesson part. He just wanted to play (with his friend, Tracy). Plus, I think he was scared that the teacher would drop him in the "deep pool." Better luck next time.
I wish Tol was as excited about it as his teacher was!
We had Candice and Chris over for a BBQ. Good Times!
Working off all that delicious food with a bike ride.
All the Little Learners
We took a field trip with Tolman's preschool to WHEELER FARM. We saw lots of animals and even got to go on a tractor ride. The kids were really having a great time until our encounter with the evil goose!!
So there was an innocent looking goose walking around the farm. I had the brilliant idea of taking the kids pic with the goose in the background. The goose had a different idea. It started making it's evil honking noises and began to charge the kids and then lifted Tol's shirt with it's beak and bit him. Needless to say, the kids were freaked. They started crying so I picked up Addison while my sis, Jess (who came along) picked up Tol. I don't know what the evil goose had against Tol, but it wouldn't give up. It still was trying to reach Tol up in Jess's arms. Instead, it got Jess's bum... more than once. A dad of one of Tol's school mate's thought he was hilarious and said, "You really got GOOSED!!"
