I wonder at the rain in Minnesota. I am told it is NOT normal for the season… our Father’s Day learning is in full swing, we covered the history of and how to celebrate and now we are learning more and more about Daddy everyday. We have had to put up with extremely long hours for Ken lately. The large project he has been working has been a doozy. On the plus side we reaped the benefits of all of that on Tuesday with a TOTAL day off for Ken! What to do, what to do?
Well, we have visited the mall with the carousel in it a couple time.
Sun was in their eyes… note the really neat water feature that plays music behind them!
A rather environmentally friendly mall on the outside!
Last visit we realized that tickets were only 2.00 per kid. Quite affordable for our family to do as a special thing. I took pictures and the kids and Ken enjoyed the ride.

Right behind the carousel was a pretzel shop. I am a total sucker for the freshly baked SOFT pretzels. Now add in a special… 1.00 each every Tuesday at this outlet for the month of June and we were in pretzel heaven. Talk about being in the right place for the right day. AND we got to watch them make them all!!!
After our fun at the mall we went to one of the parks local to us for fun AND for a picnic! We made in a half day of work BEFORE we went out… including story time with Daddy listening in.

Monday (oops I am writing backwards timeline wise this time) was a day of fun with the cousins. Starting with WAFFLES!
Breakfast with the cousins
After we said good by it was time to go outside…
and bum around playing in the house of course.

Emanuel even illustrated our trip from Sunday’s IKEA adventure.
