Duluth - March 2011

Image
We went to Duluth for the weekend and stayed at the Waterpark there.  The kids had a lot of fun.  Although the chlorine they used at the pool made X's asthma act up so we could only really swim for 1.5 hours at a time.  But that's about all I can take anyways.  Here are some pictures from the trip.

Looks like Lake Superior got a lot of things near shore full of ice:  The Lake had some ice on it: We went to the Great Lakes Aquarium with the kids and here is O by the Otter exhibit.  At the entrance:  X with a Caribou  Both kids in a bear den with a mama bear  The kids with their cousin going fishing  A bald eagle A ship that came into the harbor on our last day there: The walk back to the parking lot, X in the ice and O in the front

TV season is almost over

So many TV shows are on breaks right now.  So not so much TV watching right now.  But I did find out most of the season finales for shows, all times listed in central time.

Tuesday, April 5th - No Ordinary Family (ABC) 7PM   Not sure if it's the season or series finale.  The show is not that great and I've actually missed a couple of episodes.

Friday, May 6th - Fringe (FOX) 8PM  I am liking this season and glad that Olivia is back and her and Peter are together.  I really don't like Alternate Olivia.

Sunday, May 8th - The Amazing Race (CBS) 7PM 2 hour finale  I have watched this show on and off previous seasons but have been watching it every week this season.

Thursday, May 12th - The Vampire Diaries (CW) 7PM  I've said it before but this show is so much better than the books.

Sunday, May 15th - Survivor (CBS) 7PM  I'm glad Russel is off and I'm really not sure yet who I want to win.

Monday, May 16th - Chuck (NBC) 7PM  I am glad this show came back for another …

Pokemon Black & white Tour

We went to Mall of America on Saturday and the Pokemon Black & White Tour was going on.  X got a new Pokemon for his Pokemon SoulSilver game.  We had to get little booklets and go around the mall to get stamps.  Once we had all the stamps we waited in line for almost an hour and got to spin the wheel.  The kids each got a Pokemon Stylus for the DS.  X was very excited.  Here are some pictures from the event.

Supernatural - ..An Then There Were None

Image
Looks like there will be a break and no new episodes for a while.  Sad.

This week starts out with Mother hitching a ride with a truck driver.  She whispers in his ear and then he goes and murders his family.  Bobby and the Winchesters see a string of murders and go and investigate.  Booby sure cleans up playing an FBI agent.  They run into Rufus and he's there to investigate the same thing.  So Rufus and Bobby go to see the body of the latest killer and find some goo in the ear.  They figure out it's some kind of parasite and follow it to a warehouse where they run into Samuel and Gwen.  Of course Dean is true to his word and goes to shoot Samuel but gets stopped by Sam and says they need to work together.  Dean is alone with Gwen and shoots her and runs.  They figure out it's in him but when they catch up to him, he's himself again.  Then it goes into Samuel and he sets up traps for them and Sam gets separated.  He runs into Samuel and shoots him in the head thinking …

Supernatural - The French Mistake

Image
This was probably the funniest Supernatural episode I've seen in a while.

It starts out with Balthazar telling the Winchesters that Raphael is after him.  So he gets a bowl and makes something and gives the a key that opens a door that holds all of heaven's weapons.  They end up in another world where they are Jared and Jensen and are on a show called Supernatural.  At first they are confused and then figure it out.  Then Dean tries to summon Castiel and it works, they go to him and talk to him then the actor Misha starts talking normal and they figure out he's just an actor.  Everyone is surprised that they are talking to eachother, Jared and Jensen since they never do.  So Dean decided to get a ride with Sam to his house.  There they run into Ruby, but it's really the actress that played her and she's married to Jared.  There is much poking fun at the actors.

An angel is after them and he follows them but he has no powers.  Sam and Dean try to use the same spell…
