July 2, 2010 - planting the garden

Papa made us an awesome raised garden bed and we tested it out this late summer, for our gardening skill level as well as testing what the neighborhood bunnies like to munch on!

July 29, 2010 - baseball with Papa

Practicing baseball in the backyard with Papa learning some schematics of the game, working on Colin's pitching arm. Then Papa was able to see one of Colin's t-ball games to watch him in action!

June 26, 2010 - Daddy and Melinda's wedding in Sioux City

Colin had the important title of ring bearer in Daddy and Melinda's wedding this weekend held in Sioux City, IA where Melinda's family is located. It was a beautiful weekend and wedding, and wonderful for us to get to know Melinda's family better and see a lot of Craig's family and friends!

Colin had a lot of duties and hammed up his new audience of friends to the fullest (rehearsal dinner deemed himself the new title Super Cheetah due to his super cool orange polka dot tie :)

All in all a fabulous weekend, Colin's favorite adventures besides his ring bearer duties were going fishing with Big Jim (Melinda's dad) and his TWO trips that he got to take to McD's over the long weekend. Now he's asking for more weddings to get more happy meals, go figure!

June 22, 2010 - silly fun after hockey practice
