Week 02.27 - A Girl and Her Dog.

"Kaija, I love you."

Paige and Kaija pretty much couldn't get along without each other any more.  Valerie tried having Kaija in the back of the car on a trip, and Paige was not a big fan.  Kaija might have enjoyed the space a little bit, but I swear that she is the only dog that can feign emotions just to get a reaction.

"It's Mother's Day Momma.  Not Father's Day, right?"

We spent a rainy Mother's Day at the Minnesota Zoo.  We had a good time, but it was cut a little short by the rain.  We ended up grabbing pizza and a pitcher of Nordeast at Ole Piper, so it turned out just fine!

"Hellloooo, is any body in there?"

"I picked you pretty flowers momma.  They smell so good!"

The dandelions have arrived finally, there are a lot less than last year.  That is for sure.  (See  ).

"It's a hard-knock life for us...."

Week 02.26 - Crayon Pizza

"I made you pizza Daddy!  Try it."

Ah, to have the imagination of a 2-year old.  Everything is a toy, everything is real, and everyone always needs to pay attention to it all.

Bonus photos:

"Wait, what did you just say?  Time for bed?  No way man."

"Gotta water Momma's flowers."

"When's Momma going to get home?

Paige has been rather uninterested in me lately, and much more focused on Valerie.  I assume it is just a stage, but then again, I can't blame her if it isn't.

Week 02.25 - A Lonely Walk

"Dada?  Momma?  Where you go?"

We went to visit my parents in Detroit Lakes, and we went for a walk in the nature preserve.  Paige had a blast running around and looking for alligators and lions.  Sadly we didn't find any, but we had fun none-the-less.

Bonus Photos:
"Let's get this show on the road.  I'm not waiting around all day for you kids."


"Worms?  Yuck!"

Week 02.24 - Rainbow of Colors

Sorry for the delay.  Been a busy few weeks around here.  Thus without further ado:

"All the colors are fun.  Just have to be careful."

Easter Egg coloring was almost a success, but our dining room floor almost ended up a permanent shade of Orange.  Turns out the carpet cleaner actually works.  Lucky us.

Bonus Photos:
"Can we watch Bambi again?

"Get me outta here!"
"No, I donmgp't haasfkve nurfmning in my mourgph."

Week 02.23 - Tunnel Slides

"I go head first, right?"

Time for a quick score tally.  Head first sliding, no problem.  Jumping off of 3 foot high steps, check, climbing up 8 foot tall chain letters, easy.  The way I see it, if we can get her to put her shoes on the correct feet, we will have pretty much won at this parenting thing.

Bonus Photos:

We had to take advantage of the nice weather (that lasted all of four days).

Come on, let's go.  Kaija needs a nature walk!"

Every walk is a nature walk to Paige.  Even if we just tool around the block.  I guess that says a lot about our neighbors...
"This forest needs some color, I figure a little pink would be good."

"My chair."
