Kingdoms

We had the idea of putting together a video montage of our boys from the last couple of years, but weren't sure how to creatively do it. While brainstorming we were inspired first by our trip to Chicago and ascending Willis Tower and later by a random phrase that popped into my head... (more…)

My Calling

There are moments in life long forgotten yet their impact is never-ending. It was just a few words, and I'm guessing the missionary who spoke them would hardly remember them today. (more…)

2014.01 // Elliot’s 3rd Birthday

It's hard to believe that Elliot is already three years old! We had a fun time getting ready for his robots and rockets birthday party and we're blessed by family friends who were able to join us.

29plans 2014

For the past year I've been working on a Bible reading plan and I now have it finished in time to share for 2014. I was inspired by the simplicity of the First Steps SOAP reading plan which I promoted as a youth pastor a couple years ago. I'm personally not a fan of reading the Bible in large chunks…

2013.10 // Halloween

The Reed Family went with a space theme this year. Elliot enjoyed being an astronaut and Quinn rocked his stars sleeper.  We took the boys around to our immediate neighbors before getting to work handing out candy.  Although our overall total was down from year's past (173 overall, 131 kids), we love that giving out candy is the funnest part…

2013.09 // Fort Snelling

Fort Snelling has become one of favorite destinations this year and this time we made it during World War 1 weekend. Though in my opinion their specialty era is the Civil War, they did a great job bringing the history of this early 20th century conflict to life.  The infantry drill was the highlight as they simulated attacking a fixed…

The winter of 2013 was filled with fun with snow and friends. We had a great time with Grandma Fizzes over Christmas and a number of friends and family for Elliot's 2nd birthday party.

2013 // Summer

The summer of 2013 flew by quickly.  We had a lot of fun at our local park and saw a lot of movies in June.  We stayed busy in July helping run Youth Camp, but managed to take it easy in August treating the Twin Cities as our vacation destination... Fort Snelling, MN Zoo, State Fair, Vikings, Twins, Trains, and…

Believe the Hype

This past weekend Gravity raked in the most tickets sales of any movie ever released in October.  Jill and I made it to the opening at our local theater this past Thursday night and were blown away. (more…)

2013.08 // MN Air National Guard Museum

The Minnesota Air National Guard Museum was another stop on our Twin Cities tour in August.  They have Open Cockpit weekends a few times a year where there's no admission charge.  It's not too hard to find, just be sure to rely on the directions on their website and not your phone's GPS (lesson learned).  After a full vehicle inspection…

Fort Snelling has special weekends throughout the year our favorite of which has been Civil War Weekend. It's complete with artillery drills, costumed staff…
