Must be football season!

It's the start of training camp...and Madisyn's gearing up for the upcoming Packer season. As of right now she's still in contract negotiations (we're holding out for more guaranteed money), but her agent thinks it shouldn't be long before she signs and is in camp. Go Pack!

The Staniak's

Earlier this summer (late spring I guess) the Staniak's came for a visit. Luckily we had awesome weather and were able to hang out outside. The kids had great time playing at the park. And aside from the failed 'sleepovers' Madisyn was so excited to see Reese and Chase again (Jenny and Ryan too).

 this the definition of 'flower child'? Peace sign....for real?


Check out those straight teeth!!

I'm back!

It's only been 4 months, but the mounting harassment was starting to get unbearable. Just kidding. In any case, here's to my summer resolution to start getting some pictures back up here every now and again. Wish me luck! I have a lot to catch up on so stay tuned (fingers crossed)!

Elton John eat your heart out!

Riley asked I update his photo too.

The last of the 2's

Tonight is Madisyn's last night of being 2. Tomorrow's the big day...and probably one the biggest for our little munchkin. Its crazy to think how fast time has gone. 3 years since that little one blessed out lives. I can't imagine life without her. Its so funny to see how excited she is for her birthday too this year. Supposedly the Happy Joe's pizza party is all her and her friend Simon can talk about at day care. Here's to hoping it lives up to the hype. In any case, it will be a blast, but kinda sad to think she's already another year more grown up.

This last weekend Madisyn got to meet Baby Jack (Amie's cousin's Son). She was actually the one to get him to stop crying too. She really enjoyed the time with the little guy.

Stay tuned to see how the birthday celebrations go!

Bowl-a-thon! game I mean. This weekend we ventured out to the lanes for Madisyn's first bowling extravaganza. Team Berggren's vs. Team Mellenthin (Dave, Penny & Parker) in the first ever Bowling Battle of the Block. Not really sure who ended up winning....or outlasting...the battle. But what I do know is the kids had a blast. First thing this morning Madisyn asked "Can we go bowling agian." It was so funny seeing how independent the kids were. How they wanted to carry their balls, line up the ramp (which btw is a brilliant bowling alley invention) and I'm pretty sure they would have even kept score if we had the old fashion score sheets. Then after those 10 full frames of fun, we headed to Sammy's for a little pizza. A great end to fun weekend.

.What concentration!

A little help from the pro. Golf might be my thing...but bowling looks to be Amie's (The winner of the day)

Sweet kicks! Even came with the freaky bowling alley spray stuff in 'em.

That's a big ball. 7lbs to be exact.

French fries seemed to be a highlight of the day.

Poopie crumbs.

No pictures for this one. Believe wouldn't want them. Just had to post it, because after Madisyn went #2 tonight, she said "But Daddy....there are still poopie crumbs in there" referring to some little bits that didn't go down. It truly is amazing what these kids say....just cracks me up!
