Fun for Mason

While we were in Minnesota, Mason had a blast at Nana and Papa's! 
Here are some of the pics from his one-on-one time with Nana and Papa!

Last week we spent a few days up in Minnesota with many of the Petersen side of my family.  It was an awesome vacation!!!  The house we stayed in was right on the water.

We had 5 bedrooms and the house was very nice!


Brady had a blast playing in the water with Tyler and Trey!
The resort we stay at always has fun events going on.  On Tuesday night it was pizza night, minnow races and rootbeer floats.  Brady LOVES the minnow races!  He's just a little excited if you can't tell!





On Tuesday during the day a bunch of our crew went to the amusement park in Alexandria.  Brady loved the bumper boats

Time for some mini-golf!

Brady and Andy went out with some of the crew one morning and Brady casted his pole all by himself and caught a fish---reeled it in by himself too!  He was SUPER excited!


On Wednesday, while the guys went golfing, we hit up the craft for the kids.  Christmas ornaments and cookie decorating.  He had so much fun!

Wednesday evening we went to a bar/grill for wings night (although not all of us got was fun!)
Then on Thursday evening there was a wine glass etching/wine & cheese tasting for the ladies at the resort...SO fun!  Then we had our usual fish fry that night.  All in all it was such a great vacation!
The next post will be about Mason who got to stay at Nana and Papa's while we were gone.  We sure did miss him but he had SO much fun!

House update

I finally have a house update!  We finished up the basement, outside trim work and the deck!  It's been a busy few months but now it's just time to enjoy!
Andy did an AWESOME job with the deck!  It used to be a rust/red color and he matched the house perfectly with the new stain!
And here is the area


Kitchenette...looking for a neat farm table to put in this area

Playroom (5th bedroom/future workout room)
We LOVE the basement and are down there every day/night!  So glad to have it all finished up!

Lots of swinging and park time
