Lily’s second grade class, and myself as a chaperone, went to visit the City of Watertown today and learned all about how things work around here. They got to sit in the back of a police car, learn about how emergency responders work and their tools, learn about the water/sewer system, and more. I learned […]
We now have a new dog in our home. His name is Marshmallow and he’s a Bichon Frise. What’s really nice is that he’s a hypoallergenic dog so no allergies! Marshmallow is an active dog and we think he’s 2-3 years old. He’s pretty house trained but doesn’t know how to sit or anything like […]
There were a lot of discussions and tears on Friday as we had to make the hard decision to return Archie to where we came from. It wasn’t that we didn’t want him, in fact he was a great dog. The issue was that whatever he was mixed with was causing my wife to have […]
Our neighbor finds caterpillars and helps keep them safe while they turn into beautiful butterflies. They’ve been sharing the experience with Lily and tonight she got to let one go.

Fun at the Minnesota Zoo.
For the first time in years we went to Valleyfair. I’m a thrill ride fan so I was hoping to hit up all the coasters, but it was also Lily’s first visit so there were plenty of new kid rides that I knew I’d be trying out. We picked a great day as it wasn’t […]
Once we moved into our new house, Lily missed her old swing set and slide. We hooked up a swing to a tree, but it wasn’t quite as good. It worked for a while, but we knew we had to keep our eyes out for a new swing set. Then, we found the Lifetime 90143 […]
