Speaking of the Kid

March 29, 2007

Some may not have understood the previous post with the Dodge Dart…

That 1964 Dodge Dart GT is my first car. It’s been sitting in my parents garage for the last 10 years, getting occasional work from my dad. We used him for my sisters wedding in 2001, and our wedding in 2004.

I’ll talk more about the car, whom I call “The Kid”, later… but I had to share this bit of writing I did when I first put him in storage.

I called it, “A Car and His Boy

I hope you like it!

Last Surviving Female Vet of WWI Dies

March 29, 2007

This was on NPR yesterday… it seems they are following the last veterans to a degree.

USA had a story about another WWI veteran the other day…

3 years later… it rains… but the Kid starts this time…

March 28, 2007

Inspired by the nice weather, and Janet and mine 3rd Anniversary, I dug up the Kid out of my parents garaged, and fired him up. There’s more to the story here, but that’s for one of my long boring posts, so I’ll skip it for now.

Sara brought the girls over, so we got them piled in the back seat.

And on the trunk too…

“Hey… doesn’t this car have FM??!!”

So I picked up Janet, and we cruised down the river road for a bit.

March 27, 2007

Went to he Children’s Museum in St. Paul last week. The girls had fun. Lots of cool ramps and slides.

Maeve was a skunk for a while… fortunately the costume didn’t come with a built in smell.

Grandpa and I took the girls downtown last week, intending to go to the autoshow. Which was open during the day. So we killed some time at the downtown library, and met mom for lunch.

It’s getting real nice out there the last couple days. I’m almost ready to believe it’s not going to snow again.

The dreaded Canadian Geese…

You can see the ice melting fast. Our neighbor was able to work on his dock a couple days ago, walking around the ice. Couldn’t do that today.

So what if it was a huge ugly snowstorm a week ago! We’re going out on the deck to play anyway….

Hey, where did the snow go?!

Cecelia Birthday Party!

March 12, 2007

We celebrated Sunday evening with some great friends and family. Cecelia had a really great time (considering she never did nap like she was supposed too!) After a great meal prepared by Janet, we sat our guests down to have everyone write a poem about Cecelia.

You can see Sara and Janet are clearly not focusing as much as Gloria, Grandma, and Jon. Even Avae is working hard on her poem.

Some cousins at the little kids table. Jon is not considered a little kid anymore, but since Chad wasn’t there he felt most comfortable eating his cake here.

A beautiful new dress for Cecelia. Thank you for all the wonderful gifts!

Is there anything more cute then Gloria and Saahas in a picture together? I dare you to find one!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well… ok this might be cuter.

This one is pretty cute too though… forget I asked!

These have GOT to be some of the funniest videos online right now… please watch this one, then go to askaninja.com and watch the rest when you have some free time. They are all very good.

And I would love the DVD for my birthday (it’s coming right around the corner you know!)
