what's up?

Hey All-

Been far too long between posts and I hope this note finds everyone well. Posted a video from Saturday Night Live - and this might be one of my favorite skits on the show called "What Up With That". I hope you enjoy it.

Not a lot has been new around here. Lisa just completed her first 5k last weekend and it looks like she is gearing up for another one this weekend. I am so proud of her. She did great and established a new personal best so that was really exciting.

She ran it with Jamie Burdorf and Mandy Hunecke and it was for a great cause as they raised over a 1,000 dollars for Leep. Saturday afternoon I worked the spring football game before we all hung out at Mandy and Justin's that night. It was great catching up with everyone. We live two miles from Mandy and Justin and don't see them enough and we haven't seen Aaron and Jamie since they stayed with my parents for the fourth of July last year.

Work has been good for both of us. The sports season is winding down (everything should be wrapped up by the end of May) and I'm looking forward to a nice, relaxing summer. If I get approved, I'll be heading to San Francisco for work in July and Lisa and I are hoping for a getaway at sometime this summer. Where, I don't know but we want to go somewhere and somewhere were we can do things relatively cheap.

Watching the biggest loser right now and they have to pen cattle. Of all the things they can do... Damn I should have applied for this season. I'm no expert herdsman, that's for sure, but I know that I could do this way better than these City Slickers.

That's really all I got... I'll take vacation ideas in the comments!

Hope all is well-

Scott, Lisa and Eddie

PS: Speaking of Eddie.... Little guy got his first kill a couple of weeks ago

Maybe a summer home away from home...

Today was a great day in the Minnesota State Athletic Communications office. Through one of my boss's (PA) contacts, we got a private tour of the new Twins ballpark, Target Field.
Talk about a beautiful place to watch a game. Until my sophomore year of college, I had never been to an outdoor ball game before I went to Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City and I have seen about 10 games there. I have also been to Petco Park in San Diego and it (Petco) was the best ball park I have ever been to, until today. From everything I have heard, Target Field takes the best of every new ballpark and combines it into one. What I saw they took from Petco in San Diego was the open concourse. No matter where you walk around the concourse you can see the field basically unobstructed. They have also installed a boat load of HD tvs in the concourse so you never can miss the action. Plus they have added a lot more bathrooms and concession stands, so the lines won't be nearly as bad. Additionally the concourse is twice as wide as it was in the Dome.
For those who want, you can view my album of the day Facebook, here.
We had a good - busy - but good Easter. We drove down to Iowa Saturday night and had Easter Eve supper with Bryon, Brooke and Drake along with my Uncle Arnie. Dad grilled and we watched the Final Four and hung out, it was a good time. Drake is getting big and has a great personality so he's pretty fun to be around right now.
Sunday morning we got up went to church with my parents and then drove to Gaylord to have Easter Dinner with Lisa's family (immediate family, aunt, uncle, cousins and cousins kids). It turned out to be an absolute beautiful day and we hung outside for a couple of hours before heading back to Mankato.
Other than that, there isn't much new in our world. Hope everyone is well-
SnL and Eddie...
