Week in review...

The week started with swimming lessons for Henry on Monday evening. He seems to really enjoy the swimming lessons, but doesn't always want to do the activities that the instructor presents. But it's no big deal, he gets some of the things and is always improving.

Tuesday was a rare night off this week.

Wednesday was touch and go as Susan wasn't feeling well. Tim went to the MN Wild game against Calgary with his co-worker Rob. It was a fun time, but the game was a disappointment since the Wild lost in a shootout. It just seems that Backstrom isn't all that good in a shootout.

Thursday was Tim's broomball game at Bryn Mawr park. It was a disappointing showing by the Brother's Keeper team. We again lost without scoring a goal. At least this game we had some better scoring chances, we just couldn't put it in the net.

Friday was a rough day as Tim was feeling way under the weather, but Henry seemed to be feeling much better and was in higher spirits. Henry and Susan went to Ridgedale and played at the indoor playground (play-place). Henry really likes to go down the slide over and over. He did get upset once while there was a pile up at the bottom of the slide. Susan got in trouble for having her coffee in the play area.

Saturday was another rough start for Tim, but he eventually felt fine and Henry was dropped off at Nana and GG's for the night so that we could go to the Symantec Holiday party. The party was fun with plenty of good food and there was a chocolate/carmel warm desert that was excellent.

Sunday was mostly a relaxing day and we continued to look at more exciting places for our trip to Germany.

That's all for now as we're about to watch the finale of "The Amazing Race".

Weekend update...

It was a pretty quiet weekend at the Hoke household. Nobody was feeling very good, so we all tried to relax and get some rest. It was difficult since Henry awoke quite early on both Saturday and Sunday morning. However, he decided he was pretty tired later in the morning both days and decided to snuggle with Dad who was sitting in the recliner. Both Henry and Dad took a brief nap.

The only event of the weekend was that we went to Ann and Gary's to celebrate their wedding anniversary. This really was a good time. It was a pleasure to celebrate this event with them and I'm glad they wanted to share it with many of their close friends.

Outing to the Children's Museum

On Thursday, Susan and Henry went to the Minnesota Children's Museum in St. Paul. They had lot's of fun playing in the Habitot area, the Our World exhibit and in the Earth World display. This is always lots of fun for the two of them and is a good way to get out of the house for a change. Check out the pictures over at our SmugMug page.
