Okay we finally got the computer back! We have a new gig of memory and a fresh hard drive and additional external hard drive.10,000 photos have a tendency of slowing a computer down to a halt. And then if you throw in a couple of viruses from face book it takes 10 days before your computer gets back to you. Here is just a quick look at the last two weeks Uncle John was home for a visit,Tabor had a scrimmage and we had some great seat a the Minnesota Viking /Steelers preseason game. We spend a night at a hotel close to the dome and enjoyed a kiddie (oops) water park and hot tub.

By the way we are going to enjoy a pan of egg plant Parmesan on Sunday. Tanner has been getting plenty of summer squash and broccoli and can you believe it he is sick of eating peas.

Saturday afternoon we surprised the boyz with a trip to the HHH Dome to see the Twins take on the Indians. We got to the dome by 4:30 so the boys could see batting practice. We ran into our favorite teacher from C-T , Bruce Fingerson and his son Patrick. We made to signs we hope made T.V. The first one was Circle us Bert we are the Elliott Boyz from Nicollet and the other one said " Hey Bert say HI to my Great Grandpa Zimney in Fargo,ND" . We had good seats with Gomez in front of us all night. We didn't get to see in fabulous plays but we had great time. Humm I wonder if there is a Vikings game in our future boys?

Friday night we went to the Vikings training camp where they had a Punt-Pass and Kick competition. The boyz also got to meet Victor the new mascot. Last year the big talk was Adrian Peterson this year its Farve going to be a Viking or NOT?

We had a whopper of a storm roll threw the area this week. It finds the boys spending days picking up branches and raking the yard. Tabor shot a photo of the hail and yes it was that dark at 8 a.m. in the morning. We received close to 2 inches of rain and wind guest over 60mph. The electricity went out for about 3 hours. They even had to cancel 2 Viking training camps practice because the wind tore the tents around on campus. It did a number on the garden and we all know how Mom feels about her garden.
