Well I was going through stuff and I found the "This is your Life" CD that John and Ben put together for me shortly after Erik and I got married. Since this blog is about the Apple Valley family I thought it would be fun to put this clip up for all to share...kind-of a how it all started type thing. (Don't worry, you guys are not going to be subjected to a bunch of OLD home movies all the time) This is a record breaking length video...more than 8 seconds. In fact it is almost four whole minutes so grab your popcorn and let's go down memory lane. Look for some fun cameo appearances.. I have not watched this in such a long time. I love it..ah sigh. Was Erik really THAT young when we got hitched? Of course I have not aged at all..hehehe.

We just got home from a really fun show called..can you guess.."A Year with Frog and Toad." It was at the Minnesota Children's Theater. The set looked just like the books. The music was so much fun...and Frog and Toad were fabulous. They acted out different tales from the books..like cookies, flying a kite, planting seeds, sledding and scary tales. (Andrew was not too sure about the scary tale part) It is so cool to go and enjoy stuff like this with the kiddos. It made us want to go back and reread those books again. Of course it also made me want to go to the next play at the Children's Theater too. We always have so much fun at the Children's Theater! I am very excited that Mrs. Pigglewiggle will be there soon...not to mention If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Yes, I need season tickets. hehe

Over the last few weeks we have been visited by three of our four grandparents from the west coast. We had fun taking Grandma Glenda and Grandpa Lee to the YMCA where they could see the kiddos in action. We also enjoyed going to the BEE MOVIE with Grandpa Dan. But, the best part of their visits was spending time just hanging out with each other...FYI Grandpa Lee makes a mean milkshake!!!
