Kids Running for Kid’s World Marathon Challenge

Our neighbor Nicole organized the Kids Running for Kid’s team to raise money for the Save the Children World Marathon Challenge. Mazie and Tyler joined 50 other kids running segments of a marathon around the block and raised $1,526 for a great cause.

10th Annual Olson Family Weekend

This weekend we got together with Tammy’s side of the family for the 10th Annual Olson Family Weekend. We returned to Lanesboro this year. The late season snow put a halt on the plans to bring bikes and do a lot of riding. But everyone enjoyed watching the snow melt through Saturday with a lot of fun and then spent the day playing Kubb and having fun outside on Sunday. We also got to celebrate Tammy’s birthday with everyone on Saturday night and have our own Cinco de Mayo celebration on Sunday with lethal margaritas courtesy of the Daily’s!

“I’m a boy and I’m three.”

When Tyler came down from his room this morning I gave him a big hug and wished him a very, very happy birthday. He replied to me that “I’m a boy and I’m three.” Indeed Tyler, indeed. Tyler had a great day today. He had preschool and got to bring cupcakes for the other kids. He loves preschool. I ducked out of work early and we all met for a dinner of his choosing at Yum!. Tyler picked a big bowl of mac-n-cheese as always, and an even bigger cookie to celebrate his birthday.

We finished the day with presents at home and the whole family watching Misty Island Rescue, his favorite Thomas movie.

I asked him before bed if he had a great birthday he he said “Yes Dad.” How great to be three!

Tyler’s Favorite Website

Lately Tyler has taken to sitting down at the iMac, logging in on the guest account, starting a Safari which takes him to Apple’s website. He then watches video after promotional video.

It’s now totally common to hear Jony Ives saying “aluminium” at random intervals.

Dads and Donuts at Berry Patch

Today I got to take Tyler to Berry Patch for pre-school to attend Dads and Donuts day! Tyler was super excited for Dad to come to school with him. We played with Play-Doh while everyone arrived. We then went in and talked to Fireman Tom from the Edina Fire Department. Tyler was sitting up front and volunteered to come up front and try on a fire fighter suit! He was so excited!

He got to stand in fireman boots:

Put on a fireman jacket!

And a real fireman helmet!

After our talk with Fireman Tom we went out front and got to see a ladder truck up close! Tyler posed with Ms. Anita for a picture in front of the truck.

He even got to drive it!

We finished with a delicious donut with another fire truck on the table!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mom’s 60th Birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! If my Mom is any indicator, 60 is the new 30! :-)

To mark the day we get family together at the Minneapolis Photo Center and I took a ton of family photos for everyone. It was a really fun evening with great images to remember the day with.

Tyler’s “Big Boy” Cookie

They were out of the small kids chocolate chip cookies at Yum! tonight. Tyler didn’t seem to mind! I’m pretty sure it was bigger than his head.

And to answer the obvious question? He ate it all, minus a couple of bites he shared with Dad!

Trolley Train

Tyler and I visited Choo Choo Bob’s today and somehow this happened.

 

Happy Fathers Day 2012

Playing in Creek

We all had fun playing in the creek tonight after dinner.
