Summer Nephew Time

Hello everyone. It is hard to believe that it is the middle of July already. It took so long for summer to get here that now it seems like it is just flying by. During the last couple of weeks I have been spending a lot of time with all four of my nephews. Each year my sister and I usually take a baseball trip with my nephews to Kansas City. We go to a couple of games and do other fun things. Well this year my nephew Logan had driver's Ed classes so we weren't able to go. We went to the Twin Cities instead. We stayed at the Mall of America Water Park Raddison and also went to a couple of Twins games at Target Field. All four of the older nephews went, Matthew (22) Logan (15) Ian (14) and Ivan (10). It was a lot of fun. The first day we had lunch at a place called The Nook in St. Paul. It was on the TV show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It was a dive but the food was great. We all had a Juicy Nookie which is a burger with the cheese inside...or a heart attack on a bun! LOL
The waterpark had tons of things to do...there was a wave pool, a lazy river, a place where you could body surf, three different slides at different heights and a shallow pool to play basketball and stuff. They all took advantage of all of the things a number of times.

And here are a couple of pictures at Target Field and the Twins game.

All in all it was a great couple of days spent with my sister and nephews. 

Last Friday I got to babysit Isaiah the first time alone. His mom has gone back to work and it is pretty hard on the little guy. He still refuses to take a bottle so we have to put the milk in a cup and put it in his mouth so he swallows it. He really misses nursing when he is trying to go to sleep...he cries a lot and sucks on my shirt on my shoulder but if you put a pacifier or bottle nipple in his mouth he screams, it is hard for this Auntie to hear him crying. The thing is that when mom is home she just nurses him so I doubt that the bottle will ever work. Although it is tough the good times greatly outweigh the hard times. I really love my little guy!

Well that is all I have for now! Have a great week everyone!
