In May, I spent a week in Minnesota after Gemma was born. Catherine was a most welcoming hostess to her delightful home!
I saw Jack in action, a focused athlete. He took every opportunity to shoot hoops, inside and out!
Catherine and Tom's backyard is a child's dream come true with a great playset, beautiful trees and gardens, and a train that drives by every day!
A short walk from the Berg home is a bridge where Jack enjoys throwing twigs into the stream below.
Down the path from the stream is a wonderful park, a Berg family favorite.
The emerald grass of the Berg yard sparkled in the May sun. Frederick and I teamed up to plant some flowers!
Frederick watered thoroughly and Jack couldn't be more pleased with the "wa wa"!
Tom and Catherine keep their yard in tip top shape, and make time for some fun.
We've been seeing only a little bit of St Paul during the Republican convention. St Paul also contains the Como Zoo, where we had a close encounter with a lion.
The Zoo has a beautiful conservatory, where the Berg family examined the fish ( a serious family occupation).
Frederick enjoyed the May sunshine, and pondered his future!
Jack loves life! He recently turned two(July 24) and brings much happiness to us all!
Beautiful Catherine is a devoted wife and mother, with little Gemma nestled close. Minneapolis and Lake Harriet are in the background.
I listened in on Tom's bedtime stories, a big hit with the boys and the giraffes. No one wanted them to end!
I had a lovely visit with Catherine and Tom and their beautiful family and heartily recommend a May visit to Minnesota!
