Took a weekend camping trip to Spring Green, WI. We took a canoe trip down the river and spent the afternoon on the sandbars. It was an awesome adventure and we hope to join the Ludwig Family's annual trip from now on.

|Old Route 66 on the way to summer camp|
|Sammy's last greasy meal for the week!|
This is a first time for John and I being all alone in the house for more than a night in almost 13 years. It's pretty interesting. We are working on completing some projects to surprise the kids. Wait until they see what we have done!!
All of the household pets are moping around missing the kids especially the dog. She got into trouble today for pawing the hose until it turned on and then digging a giant hole in the surrounding mud. This is the first time she has ever been bored enough to do something bad. We need those kids back home to watch her. In the meantime Pooh does what she does all the time now.... sleep!

Small Cozy Cottage for rent...
Well that's what a sign should say on the front of this little house. A little bird took up residence in my decorative birdhouse next to the front door. I think it is a house wren although I can not be sure. She laid eggs that have hatched into a loud little family. We are hoping they all move before the babies get too big to get out the hole (which is smaller than an inch) or the cats get them. In the meantime we have had to stop using the front door. It makes the mom so nervous she dive bombs and chatters at whom or whatever is there.

We have a teenager!!In May Ben turned thirteen. He celebrated all weekend long. Sammy made him a Super Mario Brother's cake, he partied the night before with a sleepover at his friends' house with a group of guys and spent his whole day on Sunday playing video games. Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes!
John and I are so proud of the young man he is becoming!
So we can't figure out why Maisie is having such a hard time concentrating on reading while in her tent..... notice her pals? Pooh (the kitten) and Freckles (the puppy) continue to be good friends and love Maisie. Their wrestling is becoming a little more one sided as Freckles tops out at about 40 pounds. I wish I could post the video of them in the tent together. All you see are the sides bursting out while it rolls all over the living room and Maisie tries to get out the door while screaming "Be nice!". I'll have to get one of my technical advisors to take care of this for me (Ben/Sam)
