Moving day

Well the first one has officially moved out of the house! We are so excited for Tabor to start a new chapter of his life. And he's brothers were glad he chose a 90* high humidity day to move as well. Wow was it hot and everyone was moving into today. Two a days start on Monday and next Saturday we have the football parents meeting and meal with coach.

It seems the State of MN took just as long as the NFL Players and Owners couldn't decide how to spend the $$$$$$. Mankato is jumping for JOY that the Vikes are on the way back to MSU!

Hot Summer!

Well I don't know where the time has gone but summer is almost over! Darin had a great birthday on Monday. We took the boys to Tokyo Grill in Mankato and had a great chef. Can't tell by the video but he had a little fireman who wet the grill. The boyz got a kick out of the chef drawing designs with the food and tossed it around. Plus the boyz did the shopping for Darin's gift and did a great job on a new line and reel.

Boyz had another wrestling camp this week and boy has it been hot out! The puppies have grown into these fun and active little Elliott's. It will be hard to part with them but they will only be with us another 2 weeks.

And Tabor is only here for a few more days! We did our final inspection of his apartment today. Okay when Grandma King went to Ridgewater back in the day ( ha- thought I would give up your age didn't you) they called the apartment building "The Pit" I don't think much has changed. Captains practice starts on the 28Th and he will be all moved in on the 30Th.

Darin is out of state for a few days for a trip with Cargil guys. I am sure they are working hard on finding the fish. The expansion here at the Mankato Mill is going very well. Papa Cargil just announced another bonus trip for us! Everybody keep eating bread. Yeah! We know we are going the 3rd week in September but the location is still a secret. I'm excited but lets just say school/football coach is not. Smack dab in the middle of Homecoming week.

2week update

Rocky & Pete's puppies are two weeks old and just starting to open their eyes. Rocky is such a good mom! Pete pretty much knows to stay out of the garage or he will get his but kicked by Rocky. Nobody messes with her pups except Dalton. When they were only 2 days old they had their tails and dews clipped. Dalton went into the surgical room to assist while I stayed in the waiting room listening to the high pitched crys from the puppies. With the heat and humidity we moved a fan into the garage to give Rocky some breeze. They basically eat and sleep and yawn a lot. Tripled in size from when they are born. Won't they make great birthday gifts for family members??????

Fun at the lake!

Well the weather is finally perfect! Kids are enjoying tubing and Dalton has probably made 25 s'mores over the last couple of days! Hope everyone is having a safe 4Th of July!
