The Skog Family Weeks in Review

Long time readers will remember that the motto of The Skog Girls is that they just want to party all the time.  Living this kind of lifestyle doesn't allow for much blogging time but here is my attempt to get the blog back on track.

The World Cup 2010 Spring Preview

Superstar finished off her first year of soccer with a successful spring season.  As you can see from the pics below she is really good.  She even got a medal and they don't just hand those out to everybody.  Superstar enjoyed it enough that we are going back for more this fall.  To be continued.

April 24th - What A Special Day

For as long as I can remember my family has made April 24th a special day.  I'm not quite sure why but some internet searching led me to understand that it is perhaps in celebration of the salvage of the famous old Swedish warship, The Vasa.  More likely though, it's for Barbara Streisand's birthday.  My parents did always love The Broadway Album.  IRregardless, I have continued this tradition with my children.  This year Superstar made breakfast burritos and then Wheels and I went out with some family members for a lovely sushi dinner.  A most excellent day.  I am told that Superstar was friggin adorable while she cooked up the burritos and we wish there was better photographic evidence.  Also, Superstar planned all week to have her sisters and her wear their matching, "Daddy's Little Angel Shirts" since she knew the 24th was a special day for her old man.  Thanks, Superstar.

The Land of Zion

Wheels, ever the fan of The Matrix, headed down south to the land of Zion during the first weekend of May with her good friend AM. She was pleased to report that it wasn't nearly as strange as portrayed in the movie and spent most of her time looking at rocks and walking.  Sounds like the perfect recipe for an exciting trip.  The girls were able to make it to the top of Angel's Landing and have pictures to prove it.  Fun Fact: kg and his fear of heights and lack of walking skills have actually climbed this as well.

Tunes From Toots

Here is Toots with the ol' schoolyard classic - Cinderella Dressed in Yella.  In the other clip she poses the question that all Little Mermaids ask, "What's a fire and why does it... what's the word...?"

The Rockstar Has A Question For You

Speaking of questions, Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?

The Most Delicious Ice Cream Topping Ever

I love ice cream and root beer.  I would dare say that a root beer freeze or shake might be my favorite dessert.  However,  I don't really enjoy a good root beer float.  How does that make any sense?  Well if any of you are in the same boat then please rush out NOW to your nearest supermarket and pick up some of this tasty treat.  I loved it and my girls did too.  I've only tried the A&W so I can't vouch for the Dr. Pepper topper but I imagine that would be delightful as well.

Dinosaur Park

Wheels took the girls to the local dino park on Memorial Day while I was golfing.  Since I wasn't there I don't have much to add other than these pics are a much more enjoyable archaeological experience than the last Indy Jones flick.

Superstar's Portfolio Vol. XVIII

Once again, all shot by Superstar (If you can believe it!)

Toots' Pics Vol. I

Toots decided to throw her hat into the photography ring.  I never would have guessed that two amateur photographers with such talent would live under the Skog roof.  Nice debut, Toots.

Rockstar - Not A Fan of the Grass

My only memory from when I was a small child is that of me crawling around with my head skimming the floor in front of me.  I believe it was to help steer me away from the grass, of which I was deathly afraid.  Glad I could pass along something more than just my hair, silky falsetto and hay fever to my girls.

Superstar All Grows Up

Superstar is moving on to kindergarten.  Unbelievable.  Our little Superstar is all grown up.  She grows up and she grows up and she grows up.

Random Pics

Well I hope you enjoyed your tour of April and May as much as I did.  Here are a few other misc pics since I figured that what this post was missing was more pics.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
