2 for 1 Party

Adam is a Norway fan and kept talking about Syttende Mai day coming up so Kim decided to surprise him with a 40th birthday party a couple days early.
 He came home from work and found the Underwoods and Jerdees in the house
 with a long table filled with Norske-style appetizers. 
We enjoyed open-face sandwiches, cheeses, flatbreads, lefse, salad and lots of color.

The lefse roll plate was emptied first!

Champagne, anyone? Ser~ed with a Kim-style smile :)

 Thumbs-up for the food from Blake :)

Adam prefers pecan pie to birthday cake. Landon helps him blow out the candles.
Hunter made the flag garland (in background) when he was 5.

For an after-dinner sip, Adam pulled the old bottle of Aqua ~it out of the cupboard.
Ice cubes from the cooler stuck to the bottle :)

Shots for the aged ones.
The boys were playing ball in the yard.

Happy 40th, Adam!

6th Grade All District Track Meet

Today was the 6th grade track meet for the entire school district (about 800 kids). Here is Hunter with his awards.  He went away with first place in his heat for the 100m and All District 100 m Champion, first place in the 4 x 100 and Sprint Medley relays and All Distrct Champions for both relays (Hunter ran the 100m in both).  He also got 4th in the 800m, but he was tripped by two other kids in his race and was left with big scrapes on his elbow and knees.  He as tough and got up and ran after his spill and ended up getting 4th place.

All the kids in the district.

Hunter's two time all district Champion relay team.

Mother's Day

All I asked for this Mother's Day was a home run.  So Hunter got me three.

It's That Kind of Day

The Adam Jerdees are having a slow stroll through the inside of the Minnesota Zoo today. Staying warm, taking it easy... Like this g...
