Geocaching and Fish Printing---you know typical Saturday for the Ingers and fam.

Just got home from geocaching (found 8). Ate lunch at a place that offered a uterus and stomach special...almost tried it, but we'll wait until next time.

And we're off for "fish printing" and interactive children's music at the grand opening of Silverwood Park in St. Anthony. It's a beautiful park with no geocaches hidden there yet. We're going to scout out a place for one.

The shuttle for the grand opening festivities is a trolley departing from the school parking lot across the street. Fun fun.

Happy 5th Anniversary, David!

It's our fifth anniversary today. David won with roses and perfume and a sweet card. Thanks, David! I gave him a new hat that he picked out at the state fair a few weeks ago.

The three of us ventured down to Silverwood Park open now in St. Anthony. It was so pretty. They have a really nice visitor center, ampitheater, outdoor fireplace, paved and wood chip trails, a foot bridge out to an island to picnic on, and they offer art classes that sound interesting including paper making and book binding. I think I can see taking a book binding class.

Ingrit had fun chasing some ducks.

When we came home Ingrit tried to ride her trike. She's almost got it! Now we've got to find her a helmet. I was looking at Wal Mart, but the smallest they had said 3 plus. Guess I'll have to shop around some more.

Big girl beds and trikes....I don't know...where did my baby go?

Ingrit wore her first "real" ponytail outside to color on the driveway with chalk tonight. It wasn't windy. It really just stuck straight out. Wonder of wonders, she didn't fuss with it and it's still in her hair! Favorite things around lately:
frozen juice pops
frosted mini wheats
climbing on the couch
big girl beds---so happy
climbing into and out of the car
the kitty

Big Girl Bed

Today was the day Ingrit decided to plummet from her crib. Luckily, I caught her.

Ran out to get a toddler bed ASAP. She LOVES it. Of course, she hasn't actually slept in it yet. She did pretend though. This might be a long night for the Herfel and Watkins' house.

Particular glee was found in bounding out of bed and running around the house squealing.

Stuff that babies and moms did today

I had the day off today, so I took Ingrit to Como Zoo. She rode the old carousel there. She loved it. Think her favorite zoo thing is still just the plain old mallards. She loves them.

We watched Sparky the Sea Lion do a little show. Later on today we spent a lot of time at the fountain park thing near our house. Ingrit got soaked and loved it. She played near another little girl and then spent a bunch of time climbing on some playground equipment.

By the time we got home we were both tired. Ingrit fell asleep eating supper! Very comical and sweet until Jack barked his fool dog head off.

She's in bed right now, crying for a minute before I go back in to comfort her again. She's not used to me putting her to bed. Oh well.
Yesterday I took her to wal mart and she rode this little airplane ride. It sang an obnoxious song.
