Excuse Me Stranger, Can You Hold My Baby?

filed under: Miscellaneous on July 5, 2009

Can you name this kinda famous person? 

Unless you live in Minnesota, you probably have not heard of him.  He did run for President in 1984 with a female running mate Geraldine Ferraro.  He was the 42nd Vice President of the United States under Jimmy Carter.

In Aaron Spelling's teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210 the character Brandon Walsh honored him by naming his car after him.

And he does have his own Wikipedia page.  Thats famous right?

But first, gratuitous family shots.
Cousin Leah and baby Luke.  Look at those soft locks of gorgeous blond hair.  Yummy.



This totally random guy was walking in the parade singing some John Lennon song.  I whipped out my camera and he stopped right in front of me and serenaded us all…



Oh yeah.  Wondering who the mystery Presidential Candidate is?

Well, none other than Walter Mondale.  Holding my little baby Audrey.  She is 6 months and has already met more famous people then me.


Good times. 

After the parade went went back over to cousin Leah's house and ate lots of good food and played outside and talked and laughed.

I have a feeling that a lot of people did that this weekend.

Well, maybe not at cousin Leah's house.  But you know.

Hey… and I also 'freshened up' my blog a bit.  Did ya notice???  Thank you Debi for all your help!  Debi is amazingly talented…stop by here to see her amazing photographs!

    Total random guy does seem a little awkward.
    And I lived in MN half my life and I don’t know who Walter Mondale is…BUT you are correct, he must be famous with a Wikipedia page! 🙂
    Have a fabulous week!

    Yep, I’ve heard of him. But then again, I’m a political junky. 🙂
    It looks like so much fun and akwardness combined. The kids are gorgeous as always, but I want to know. How on earth do you keep their white shirts white? I hope you all had a great weekend.

    Please don’t be alarmed… but I want to eat your baby. Thats right. I want to eat that little ankle fold and those rubberband wrists and those dimpled knuckles. Holy Cuteness!

  • Kristin says:

    Not to brag on myself, but I actually know who Walter Mondale is! Kind of surprised myself. And I know you are tired of hearing this, but I LOVE your kids clothes. They are always so cute!! The hats stole the show today. 🙂

    Ok – confession, I don’t know of him 🙁
    However, later this week I promise to finally post about the celebrity chef we met at one of his restaurants in Bristol when I was there last month. I am pretty sure you won’t have heard of him either!

  • Karen@Surviving Motherhood says:

    Oh Yay! Oh Yay!
    I knew it was Walter Mondale!
    OK. I wasn’t totally sure of myself – especially the part about being Carter’s VP. But I am proud of myself for remembering that he ran with Geraldine Ferraro. (Though I’m pretty sure I don’t know how to spell her name. *sheepish grin*)
    The thing I want to know is – did you try some S’mores with peanut butter???

  • carma says:

    How ’bout that! Walter Mondale – pretty cool and your blog looks very spruced. I’m lining up a sprucing for my blog as well!

  • Amanda May says:

    Oh my goodness, your little Audrey is so cute…I want to squeeze those thighs!!!!!

  • Christy says:

    Great pictures as always girl! I’ll “forgive” you for letting a Democrat hold your baby, since he didn’t win! hehe!! LOL If it helps I did actually know who he was before you wrote his name!
    It looks like you guys had a lot of fun at the parade!!!

  • Dea says:

  • Nan says:

    My oldest met two former world leaders when he was just 15 months old! President Bush (41) and Gorbachev… and Bush Sr. came right up to my baby and said, “What a fine boy!” :^D
