Spring time brings old pastimes and new ones. Simone's new pastime is riding her flashy new fairy bike. What four-year-old wouldn't want a sparkly fairy bike complete with streamers and flowers?! Springtime also brings baseball in the street with pitcher extraordinaire Terry Erickson. Last weekend we visited the LaVigne clan in MPLS. Cousin time was highlighted by a visit to Drew's fire station. The kids loved climbing on the rigs. But the true highlight was hearing the fire call go out and seeing Drew and the guys get into the rig and drive away to a call. We all thought it was pretty cool to see the heroic firefighters respond to a call.
