A picture to remember

Our favorite movie

We have long been fans of Totoro, an inspired piece of film making from Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki. We own it and have watched it many times with the kids. And our local cheap theater the Riverview played it on their big screen last week. What a joy to watch big! A shot from our seats:

Happy birthday to my dear ma

Today is her 36th birthday, happy birthday Mama! Thanks for being such a wonderful ma and ma-in-law and especially such a wonderful grandmother to our kids!


Grandpa Tim and Cynthia are in town for the uptown Art fair and are staying at my mother's tiny apartment near our house. Here we are playing some late-night rook after a long day at the fair (Photo from Cynthia!)

Fun little thing I shot for work

Vikings training camp is a chance for fans to get up close to players. But KARE 11 photojournalist Ben Garvin met 5-year-old Micah who just loved being able to spend time with his grandpa Steve. “Can’t afford to bring him to a game, so I bring him here.” Grandpa Steve says Micah had a blast.

Brothers jumping

Powderhorn park swimming

We went to the park the other day and everyone wanted to go swimming. But we had no suits. Underwear to the rescue! Hilariously I noticed all the other kids also were swimming in clothes. Ahhh, the laid back quality of city pools.

Netta: "Mama, is this my favorite cheese?"

Jessica: "No, that is lard, that is not a cheese."

Netta's perfect form

Will be sharing some photos from a recent trip to the cottage over the next few posts, including this shot of Netta exhibiting perfect form as she jumps into the water. She often sleeps like this, too. Straight and highly organized.
