DSAM had a Sunday breakfast, so we got to see many of our friends.

Redoing our pantry


Redoing our pantry
Originally uploaded by Linkert.
We were about to finally put a door in our pantry, when I suggested to Janet we redo the shelves in them. The shelves we originally got were 12" deep, and she passed on the deeper 20" shelves. She's regretted it ever since, and knowing it would be much harder to redo them with a door in the door way, I offered to redo them now.

So our dining table is our pantry presently.

We went through the corn maze. This was great, as Jackson has discovered and really enjoyed mazes recently. It was fun!

The chairs they are sitting on are from Janet's childhood. Max and Emily used them when they were little, then Grace and Jackson, and now our girls. Tim Andersen refinished them - they are sturdy and gorgeous!

On Tuesday, we finally took Merrills remains and interned them at the Fort Snelling Cemetary. It was a nice service. We also made a couple other stops, like here at his parent's grave in Osseo.

They died in 61 and '68. Apparently Merrill never had them put the year of death for his father. We have taken step to correct this soon.

Linkert pancake breakfast


Linkert pancake breakfast
Originally uploaded by Linkert.
It was always a Saturday morning when you could go to my Grandma and Grandpa Linkert's house, find some other Linkert's, and sit down and enjoy my Grandma pancakes. A very treasured memory for all of us. Since we got the cookbook my cousin Sherry put together last Spring, I thought it would be really fun to invite the Linkert's out, and Janet and I discussed doing it for the last few months.

Sara came up with the idea of a Kickball game, and since we live across the street from the park, it made sense to have it at our place, and tie the kickball game, and pancake breakfast together.

Everyone had a lot of fun.
