This afternoon Justin, Madelyn, and I met up with some friends at Nickelodeon Universe at MOA today.  Although I did take Madelyn on a couple of rides there without Justin a few weeks ago, this was his first chance to go on some rides with her.  And, I had seriously overestimated the number of points we were going to need to go on rides when we went before, so we had plenty left on our ticket.  However, unlike going during a day on a weekday, the place was CRAZY today and the lines were long.  The girls did a great job waiting in line for their turn on the rides and had a great time.

Here are a couple snapshots from the day:

Birthday Celebration!

This past weekend Madelyn and I, along with my mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and Aubrey went up to Fosston, MN to celebrate with my Grandma for her 83rd birthday.  It was really great to be with family and have relaxed weekend spending time with Grandma, playing games, watching movies, and enjoying SNOW!

We haven't seen much snow this winter (it has been the complete opposite of last winter) and Madelyn has had very little opportunity to play in it which has been a bummer for her, although excellent for my commute to work.  There actually was snow for this weekend in Fosston, so we went out and enjoyed it.

She's already taking my keys

I got home from work tonight and after Madelyn told me hello and gave me a hug she took my keys and told me "Bye!"  I asked her where she was going and she told me "Papa" which is what she calls my dad.  I told her that she couldn't take my car to go see Grandpa, but that I would call him and see if he could talk to her.  She seemed satisfied with that and willingly gave me my car keys back.  I didn't think it would start so soon :)
