Beautiful Colors in Duluth!

This weekend Mickey, Finn, Gracie, and I took some time to enjoy the fall colors. The weather was gorgeous! Below are a few photos from our weekend.

More Finn!

In Finn news - he pooped in his potty for the first time today! He also loves to touch my belly and say "baby." We aren't sure if he knows there is a baby in there, or if we've told him so many times that he is just repeating what we've been telling him. Below are a few pictures we took over the weekend.
































Here's Finn playing with Mary, our neighbor-friend. He calls her "May-may."













Mickey made some pumpkin soup on Friday that Finn devoured. He's pretty good at feeding himself, but still make a mess sometimes, reminiscent of "young Finn." We took his bib and shirt off after the first bowl because his bib was not stopping all the soup he was spilling.

Super Post!

Below are some photos of Finn taken in the last week. He had his first professional haircut on Wednesday. We think he looks pretty suave. He runs everywhere these days - no more walking for him.

The pictures below are from Labor Day, pre-haircut. We had a picnic at Leif Erikson Park and Finn ran all over in his diaper and cool new shoes.

One day before work we took Finn to Park Point to get some photos of him in his diaper for an online contest that Fuzzi Bunz (our cloth diaper of choice) is holding. Below are a couple of the photos we got. Note the new haircut.








































Today we took Finn to the Bayfront for a renewable energy/sustainable farming expo. There were tons of kids flying the free kites that they were giving away. Finn was very interested in watching, but was kind of overwhelmed with all the yelling and swooping kites. He also took a moment to stop and "smell" the flowers.



























Here are a couple of photos taken in our backyard. Finn now has a sandbox, and Gracie has a fence, both of which you can see below.








































This is Finn trying to tip over his water table, one of his new favorite activities.














Lastly, here is Finn doing downward facing dog.

Pearson Women visit D-town

Following the bears by no more than 30 minutes were Auntie Kimberly, Grandma Teresa, and Great-grandma Bev.

On Thursday we all went to Gooseberry Falls, north of Two Harbors, for some light hiking and watercolor painting. It's always pretty there and Finn had a great time playing with Grandma and Kimberly on the rocks.



Roar by the Shore

Sometimes it's hard to express how awesome Duluth is. Then we get some special visitors to help out.

Last week, three black bears walked right through our alley and backyard. The mama and two cubs were totally mellow and just checking out their surroundings. Keely spotted them first through the living room window. Finn, upon seeing them, said, "ROAR!" (He's darn smart.)

Here's the photos:
