2016.01 // Elliot’s 5th Birthday

For the record, Elliot has never seen a single Star Wars movie... yet. That hasn't stopped him from loving it though. He really wanted a Star Wars-themed birthday party, and being fans ourselves, we couldn't resist!

2015.05 // Vietnam

I had a good time traveling to Vietnam last week with a couple of friends. It's an amazing country with incredible people and great food (except for durian). We had a lot of fun experiencing the culture and cuisine of Ho Chi Minh City.

2014.10 // Halloween

Howdy! The Reed posse had a blast at Halloween Twenty Fourteen! We first walked down the street to the fire station which was serving hot dogs and juice before looping around the neighborhood for candy. When we got back to the house, the gang helped hand out candy. Numbers were down for the third year in a row, but it…

Our 2014 vacation officially kicked off with Haley on Valleyfair Day on August 7th. We spent some time riding the rides before hitting the road for Pennsylvania. After driving through the night with a small early morning nap in Indiana, we finished off the last leg and made it into Pittsburgh. We spent a few days with family on the…

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…

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…

Fort Snelling

It was Civil War Weekend at Fort Snelling in the Twin Cities.  The fort was packed with reenactors who gave verbal history as you toured each part of the grounds.  The day was complete with gunshots and a cannon firing.  We hadn't been there in years, but we picked the perfect weekend for a return visit.

Day at the Beach

We went to a local park with a swimming pond yesterday and managed to get a quick swim in before the crowds and clouds poured in.  It was Elliot's first swim experience and he wasn't a fan of being in the water unaccompanied.

Elliot’s First Haircut

The mullet is officially gone.  We took Elliot to Wild Child in Woodbury for his first haircut.  He was incredibly calm the entire time.  He was a little more rambunctious when we tried to get the before and after pictures outside.

Happy Easter 2012!

After a busy Easter weekend we headed to Walton Park for a little family egg hunt.  We decided to bring along a basketball and started out on the basketball courts.  Elliot seemed to naturally know what to do and made a few attempts to make a basket.  I guess watching March Madness paid off. We scattered some eggs and Elliot…

Happy 2012!

We welcomed in 2012 by bundling up Elliot and taking him outside for his first true Minnesota winter experience.  He was more confused by the snowsuit than the snow itself.  What was his reward for persevering the cold?  A solo attempt at eating spaghetti!  He did a fine job.  Now if we can just teach him to clean himself up...

Whistling Wells Farm

There's a great local farm in Afton that we visited with Lois and the Jolly family this past October.  They have an apple orchard, pumpkin patch, small farm animals, and a quaint little store with more goodies.  Elliot seemed to enjoy the farm animals and pumpkins especially.

Day Trip to Duluth

With my mom in town last week we decided to take a quick trip to Duluth on Thursday.  We went to see the Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, and downtown.  We couldn't resist dinner with Grandma at Grandma's either.  Elliot seems to enjoy the day and didn't mind the cold at all.  Thankfully Grandma had a nice red hat to…

Elliot’s First Taste of Real Food

A couple days back Elliot had his first taste of real food other than milk and cereal.  He seemed to really like his carrots... both in his mouth and out. Since then he's tried beans, squash, and sweet potato and he likes his veggies.  He's making progress on many fronts and I think he's getting pretty close to crawling.  He…
