The weekend

Team Pearson spent Thanksgiving in the cities at the largest indoor waterpark in America. The boys loved swimming and hanging with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Erika and Great Grandma.

Prior to departure from Duluth, Finn helped shovel the sidewalk:












On the way back North we were able to see Benjamin Whetstone and his parents. Blog loyalists will likely remember Benjamin from numerous posts early in Finn's life (see here and here for example). Now look at them - all grown up and with a new friend (Leif):
























Here's an old one of Finn & Benjamin:














Yesterday was Keely's Golden Birthday. We spent the day doing some of her favorite activities (eating breakfast out, playing at the beach and parks, hiking, napping, hanging with friends at the Brewhouse).

A delicious breakfast at Pizza Luce, with hot cocoa by request:













Hanging out at the beach:




































Happy Birthday mom! You're the greatest and we love you so much!

Early T-giving

Tonight we celebrated an early Thanksgiving with some friends. We ate good food, the kids played and everyone had fun. Below are a few photos from the evening.

Finn looking good:


Finn looking good again and Leif looking annoyed:


Finn playing with Jasper and Esmae. This photo illustrates how old (and big) Finn is.


Max joins the party. Leif walked circles in their house all night, and consequently is not in any photos.

Playing on the Lakewalk

This afternoon we went down to the lakewalk and played by the water en route to buying winter gear for the boys. Here are a few photos from the excursion.





Finn said he was "playing a trumpet."

Video

There's a new video over on the right side of the blog. We have a few videos that we are working on uploading, editing and posting. Look for them soon. In the meantime, enjoy the video of Finn "reading" from a few months ago.

I know Finn doesn't look cute in this first one, but check out Leif's top teeth:


Finn looking better:


And better:

Weekend photos

Team Pearson had a fun weekend here at home. Here are some photos to drive that point home:

Finn does the "plank" yoga pose before bed. He can also do down dog, up dog and the bear pose.


Finn and Tenzin stay dry under the princess umbrella at Tenzin's third birthday party.



Finn and Leif engage in some old-fashioned naked bed jumping.



In Finn news, he has been wearing big kid underwear all day long. He's only had one accident in the last three days. In Leif news, he takes a couple of steps before resorting to crawling. Good job little dudes.

Leif says vote!

We took the boys to a rally at UMD tonight with Jim Oberstar, Amy Klobuchar, Al Franken and Hillary Clinton. Finn wore his "baby got barack" tee-shirt, which was a hit with everyone there and widely captured on cell phone cameras.
