Open Eye Theatre Puppet Show

Friday night we took in an urban puppet extravaganza - The Adventures of Little Grandpa, as part of the Open Eye Theatre summer driveway tour. Soren loved the set and puppets, the live accordian player and meeting the puppets up close after the performance.

Going Fishing

Muncie reunion

This past weekend was filled with constant entertainment by having Soren's dear friends Nora and Klara visiting. Soren would follow Klara and Klara would follow Nora, so their was a steady stream of pattering feet throughout the house. Soren had his first exposure to fishing and his favorite, strawberry picking (but mostly eating).

Potty Party

There is nothing like having an older role model when it comes to potty training. Soren was able to kick his potty usage into high gear with Nora and Klara willing to demonstrate and entertain (here they are eating their wooden fruit) during the pee-pee parties held in the bathroom. Of course we had our misses too, hence this years upgrade from diapers to panties drying on the clothes line.

Summer + Dirt = True Toddler Living

Enough with the Daddy, Here's Momma

Daddy Dress Up

Soren and I have been at the cottage for the last two weeks. Randy comes up on the weekends, then leaves behind an article of clothing for Soren to play "dress up like daddy" in.

Whose your Daddy?

Opinions run 50/50 as to who Soren looks like. When I am out and about alone with Soren, folks say he looks like me. Same goes for when Randy is out with Soren. I though take one look at our cutie-pie and see all the visual qualities that made me fall in love with his daddy. Check out how they even scrunch their faces the same, and don't forget those lips! Now is that not a daddy's boy or what?!

4th of July Celebrations

At last years July 4th celebrations in Pequot Lakes Soren was in the baby crawl race. With him being such a late walker, we almost thought he just may qualify for the baby crawl race again this year. Instead, he participated in the Kiddie Parade. We decided to go with the vintage look, complete with bow tie, so he could ride his Radio Flyer push bike. The bike only lasted for about 200 feet along with his straight tie and tucked in shirt.
