We got a MN State Park Passport last summer, the goal is to visit every state park in Minnesota. Each park has a stamp, so you can keep track of where you've been. On the way to Morris the other day, I noticed a sign for a state park near Sunburg. It was gorgeous out today, so I thought it would be a great time to explore this "new to me" state park. We brought a picnic lunch and enjoyed eating out in the sunshine! Then we went on a little hike. Griffin loved carrying a walking stick (or two) and exploring nature. It's so fun to see his excitement over the great outdoors!

Griffin and Kendall had a great time at the Children's Museum on Wednesday. We had a whirlwind day, after the museum we went to the Cardinal girls basketball game at the U--they played hard--but lost, then we had a nice dinner at Olive Garden. I don't know who was more worn out, the kids or the moms!

We went to the Cardinal boys basketball game and it had us on the edge of our seats--to say the very least! When the Cards threw the ball to gain a point on West I was jumping up and down like crazy--and nearly forgot I was holding Griffin! He looked at me like I was half nuts and then got a big smile. I think he knew what an exciting win it was! We'll have a fun-filled basketball week since we are going to the Cities on Wednesday with Michelle and Kendall to catch the girls game--they will be playing in the state tournament! Here is a photo of Griffin all ready to head out to the game.

After dinner Griffin was drinking his milk and he mentioned that it would be a good idea to dunk cookies in his milk--we agreed! So, we made some cookies. As I was cleaning, I turned around and found our little man sneaking cookie dough. Smart kid. He wanted me to watch the cookies bake with him....how could I resist that!?

Jamie took out Griffin's fishing pole so that he could get ready for the summer fishing season! Jamie's theory is: The more tangles he deals with now, the less there will be in the boat. Makes sense to me! Here's one of Griffin's good casts, caught on film!
