Charlie’s class hatched duck eggs, and he insisted Henry and I come visit them the week they hatched. I’m glad he did

Henry was, too

Last Friday, we headed down the street to Lake Nokomis for dinner

It was a hit, so we may have started a trend

And we found more ducklings!

There was lots of digging and water routing

We had such a good time that the next day we decided to head to yet another beach, this time on Lake Minnetonka.

The beach we went to was in Wayzata along the train tracks. The big old building in the background of this pic used to be the old train station.

Charlie worked furiously to clean the beach of seaweed. He kept saying, “I mean…because who wants to deal with seaweed?!”

The answer was clearly: he did

We’ve been bringing the fresh lilacs in to the house lately, which has been so awesome. But I’ve never even considered doing the same with the irises, so this week, Henry and I gave that a go. With smashing results

Ooh la la!

Made some new art for above the mantle

More lilacs! We actually brought in so many that the smell was a little over powering. But Henry said we needed more.

Sandcastle was so great the week before that we suggested it for family dinner night this week.

I’m glad we did
