I took the boys to the Osseo Band Festival on Saturday.... and they loved it! They were fascinated by the flags, uniforms and instruments (especially the drums). And they were such good boys. I was a little worried tackling this adventure by myself (with Mana in the BWCA), but it was fine. It helped that my friends Stacy and Jenny (and their families) were also there :) We'll definitely be going back next year. So many memories of PCMB came rushing back. Good times!

On Zander's actual birthday, I took the day off from work and we surprised him with a few "adventures". First we went to Ham Lake Park for some fishing. About 10 minutes after we got there, it started raining, so we went home.
Then Grandma Wendy came over for lunch and to watch Mason during adventure #2. We took Zander to see his first movie ever - Up! Yes, that's right - he's 5 and just seeing a movie in the theater for the first time. I think we've set the bar pretty high since he probably thinks all movies are in 3D and require glasses.
After the movie, Mana and Zander made another attempt at fishing and were successful - and even brought a "friend" back home. The next day, they took it to WBL and released it.
After dinner, we put a candle in a chocolate chip cookie so he'd have a candle to blow out on his b-day. Cake coming later.

Family Birthday Party
The immediate family came to our place for a pirate themed b-day party. Here's everyone staying cool in the shade while the kids ran through the sprinkler.
While presents were being opened, a pirate buried some treasure in the sandbox, so the kids had fun digging it up.

Last week Zander, Mason and I all had a dentist visit. It was Mason's first time and he barely let them look in his mouth. Oh well, what can you expect from a 2-year-old. Zander was very good for his whole cleaning...and then they found a cavity. I was so bummed because we're SO good about making sure he brushes his teeth twice a day and we do a once-over when he's done. The dentist said that for some people, cavities are just going to happen no matter how well you brush. Anyhow, today he had the cavity filled and he was a perfect angel. I was totally expecting the worst - to freak out or something (when they put the nitrous oxide mask on or did the novocaine shot). But he totally didn't. He was such a good boy. I'm SO proud of him.

Today was WW... which means weigh-in time. I was pleasantly surprised by the scale. I had a lot of "event eating" where I had less control of my food choices - but I just had to be smarter about my selection and stick to smaller portions. I did use up my 35 "extra" points for the week - which you don't have to use. (I only used a few the weeks I lost over 3 pounds). Anyhow, today I was down 1.8 pounds for a total of 8.6 pounds in 3 weeks. Only about 40 more to go - ha!
