Summer can be great and I NEVER want it to end up but after close to 100 days of feeling like we have to wing it, I'm happy that kids are back in school.  This was the final weekend before the kids went back and we did a little bit of everything, went to the fair where Olivia got MN Viking Stefon Diggs to hula hoop and Isaac got his jersey autographed.  


We of course also did rides and taught kids about being robbed blind by the games as the fair.  

Since Olivia has her first day of school on Tuesday she really wanted for us to go on a date to Dave and Busters so while I was out she planned our outfit.  She sent this picture that I found adorable. 

Spent Sunday afternoon at Best Buy in Richfield at the Nintendo World Championship qualifying event where people from here locally and as far away as Califonia came to compete so they could move on to NYC.

Finally, my pride and joy that NOBODY cares about but me. We have sunflowers in our backyard that were knocking on death's door and I brought back to life.  They're pretty awesome and I have some that are easily 8 - 9 feet tall but my only question, do they actually follow the sun because right now they all face the road and that isn't necessarily where the sun is.  Is there away for them to turn?  I know this is a strange question but it's one I just had to ask.
