Friday is FUNDAY.

This will probably be a quick post cuz Dylsie is a bit moody this morning.  Well, Eric is back now and Dylan was very excited to find that his daddy was back this morning when he woke us up at 6am (must have had a bad dream or something).  Today we'll be running errands in Brainerd and cleaning up the house in preparation for guests.  Erika and Josh are finally making the trip up to see our place, so I'm sure we'll have some fun pics to post after the weekend is over.  But before they arrive, I will be cleaning and Eric will be making his gazillion runs with his wheelbarrow full of sand down to the beach.  So I will take pics for you all to see.  You know you don't want to miss out on my workhorse going back and forth 67 times!  This is gonna be great!

Ok, thats it.  Sorry for the lame post - next one will be better.

As you can see here, Dylan's sand arrived yesterday!  Here are a few pics of him seeing it being dumped with Ingrid.

King of the Sand Pile with Daddy!

DD and his new "pumpkalins"
And finally, the bridge is finally arriving!  All we have been hearing so far today is "beep beep beep" from semis backing up.  3 giant pieces came yesterday and many more are arriving today.  Exciting times around here right now!  Eric is in the cities, so you'll have to wait on the "first dump of sand" post.  I guess I shouldnt have mentioned it, cuz now you'll all be waiting by your computers to see it go down.  Patience, my pets, patience.

Up all night, CAN'T sleep all day!

Well, for the second time in a week, DD kept us up nearly all night long.  He woke up at 12:30 am or so and wouldn't go back to sleep.  Every time he was put back in his crib he would just yell for us to come and get him OVER AND OVER AND OVER.  Normally, ignoring him would work.  Apparently he has wised up to that trick cuz instead of falling asleep after several minutes of crying - he decided to take matters into his own hands and climb right out of his crib, open his bedroom door and come into our room to "sleep" with us.  If we weren't coming to him, he was coming to us.   This is something new - climbing out of the crib and getting up in the night.  Soooooo readers - any ideas as to what the problem is??  I have a feeling today is going to be a looonnnnnnng day for all of us.  We hardly slept at all having him in the bed with us.  He tosses and turns a lot, much like his father.  Eric is still upstairs sleeping, and I am drinking copious amounts of coffee in an effort to keep on going.  What happened to my good sleeper?????

Our Weekend

Well we are back after our weekend in the cities.  It was a good weekend and Dylan had lots of fun with cousins Nattie and Daniel and their cousins Jensen and Jameson.  I think he gets bored playing with just Eric and I, so he seemed pretty happy the whole time.  Well, not the whole time.  He didn't get very much sleep on Friday night (too excited? not at home? who knows!) which made Saturday morning's trip to the Renaissance Festival kinda interesting.  He had a meltdown when he realized that Daddy was not allowed to ride on the butterfly ride with him.  Eric promptly stomped out of there with him.  I'm pretty sure the Renaissance Festival will not be visited by Mr. Wikoff ever again.  He was not impressed.  Natalie, Jon, Tommy and I had fun tho.  Natalie spent a good chunk of change on rides and got lots of treats, so she was happy.  Oh and she didn't have to use the Privies either, so that was good (thank goodness for training diapers, right?!).  We all enjoyed the costumes, the old turtle, the bubble lady and the food.  It was a bit chilly out this weekend, so the wenches were all buttoned up this time around.  Uncle Jon was pretty disappointed by that.  Oh well tho - what can ya do?  Maybe next year we can go sans children, right Jon?

Dylan also enjoyed Natalie's 3rd birthday party.  He liked the present opening and the cake the most.  "I want budday cake!  I want budday cake!"  If he wasn't excited for his own party in a couple weeks, he is now!  Cuz he had a lot of fun!

Well not much more to report right now.  Chuck premieres tonight, so we're pretty jazzed about that.  We'll be taking a hot tub and then watchin' us some TV!  Happy Monday everyone!
