Photographic Year in Review - part 2

We began the second half of 2010 with a trip to Granny and Grampy's house in Minnesota. It had been a long time since we had visited - Mitchell was only 19 months old and Olivia was...well, she wasn't. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip! We visited two zoos, went to the Mall of America and Mitchell even got to go fishing with Grampy! Of course, the most special day was Olivia's third birthday. Here is a picture of her blowing out the candles on her Toy Story cake.

The Mall of America is awesome. While there, we visited an aquarium (pic of Mitchell at the aquarium below).
We also spent time at the amusement park. All of the Nickolodeon characters were there, and of course Olivia LOVED this! Pic of Olivia with Dora and Boots below.

Other highlights of the Mall of America were the American Girl Doll store and the Lego store. We also had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, which was very fun!!!
Fall of 2010 brought us the beginning of 1st grade for Mitchell! Once again, we started our school year off with breakfast at Bob Evans and some new books. This school year has been interesting, as Olivia now wants to "do school". She has started doing some Before Five in a Row books, which she enjoys. I will do a separate blog post later detailing what Mitchell has been doing so far in 1st grade.

Olivia is so girly. One day, she pulled out her stool, combs, brushes and hair bows, and decided to "do Grandpa's hair". Too cute!

We took a mini vacation in October with a camping trip. Of course, daddy had to bring his hammock, which everyone loves!

Since there are usually not any pictures of me, I thought I would include this one. Olivia did not like being up so high and refused to have her picture taken.

We were able to take a tram up and then down the side of a mountain. Fun, fun!

Finally, a pic of my sweet kids. Our camping trip was fabulous and we hope to do a lot more camping in 2011!
