Try next year Joshua. I'm not 30 yet. -Yesterday I celebrated my 29th birthday. And I think that I look pretty good for almost 30. Don't you agree?

After going on the Ladybug Walk, we picked up Mom and went out to a street of garage sales. And we found so many good things that we had to stop when the car was full. We got the Little Tikes airplane the kids are enjoying so much for $5 and we picked up some tinker toys too. Mom and Kaden made the drag racer car together. (We also picked up some set of the original wooden tinker toys.) I think it may have been more fun without the kiddos, but we found ourselves some treasure for sure. I even found a 3 book set of Sudoku books, still in the packaging, for $0.50.
During the hike they let all the kids borrow a ladybug backpack that's filled with all sorts of things. They have spoons for digging, a box for viewing bugs, a magnifying glass and lots more.

My last update was on day 19. Now 10 days later we have a second floor and the trusses are going up. (Those are the frames for the roof.) Once they're all installed, they'll be working on putting the roof on. Will Dad make the goal of having the roof up before going hunting? He's still got 2 days to goal.

Look, Versii can walk through walls. And he was trying hard to be a helper by picking up and dumping nails.

This is the kids playing duck duck goose. Although the younger ones just ran and ran.
Here's Austin sneaking through the flower bed, while I was trying to take a picture of how Kaden's sunflowers are now taller than he is.
We actually didn't do anything big while Julie was in town. But we did go to IKEA a few times to let Kaden and Ashlyn play in the Smalland. (IKEA's play place) It's great if you have a young child who's potty trained. They'll watch your kids for an hour for free. No babies allowed though, bummer. Anyway, Kaden and Ashlyn begged to go there after the first time...it looks really fun. They have a big ball pit and a little rock climbing wall, a coloring area, and a loft where they can sit and watch a movie. And Mom took the big kids to Chuck E' Cheese which of course they loved! And Julie and I were able to get away from the kids long enough to catch a few movies. We went and saw Get Smart and Momma Mia. Julie's got a good review of it on her blog. (The Lara Family, if you want to check it out.)
