Holiday Road

So the Griswolds go on vacation......., alright, the Laurienzo's, same difference. Mickey and Tina gave us some free passes to the Edgewater Waterpark/Hotel so we took a couple days and headed up to Duluth. The waterpark was great..... perfect for Vinny and Talia. We had so much fun and we were sooo tired at the end of each night after all that swimming! There was a wading pool with spraying water and slides, there was a main pool that had a vortex swirl in it..... a big huge water slide Brian loved , a lazy river.....which, by the way, was really lazy...hardly any current! ha ha...but it was all good. Our camera however, not so good. Maybe it was user error, but that dang camera took more blurry pictures than good ones. (*&^%$#@! HORRIBLE! So, unfortunately we do not have that many good shots to share. Maybe next time.

Vinny's 1st Vikings Game

Last Sunday we took Vinny to his first Vikings game. We left Talia with Grandma and Grandpa, then we headed to the light rail station to take the train! We had a great time getting there... but once the game started, Vinny lost interest. We can't blame him really. We think the last picture sums it up.

Talia made it into this picture taken at Grandmas. She didn't miss much by not going!

Vinny waiting for the train to come.

Booo! Vikings blow it again!

State Fair 2008 in the Books!

The 2008 Minnesota State Fair is in the books. The kids had a great time when they came to visit and below are just a few snapshots of all the fun.

Vinny is getting bigger and now likes to play all the fun games down in the Midway. He won two stuffed animals and a ball. Not bad!

Vinny's first trip down the Giant Slide was not as fun as we had hoped. He didn't care for it. He thought it was too high. Go figure, since in the next picture he couldn't get enough of the Space Tower!

Talia spent most of her time dancing to whoever was singing in the bandshell. Slow, fast, it didn't matter, as long as there was music, she was going to dance!
