Good Morning and Happy Monday,
This is Lisa with our weekend and baby update, and I hope you all had a nice weekend. Our weekend was busy or at least it was for me. Steve spent Saturday at home catching up on chores around the house, and having a daddy and Bryce day. Bryce spent some time at Grandma Nia's on Saturday afternoon so Steve could get a few more things done around the house, but was with his daddy for most of the day. Meanwhile, I went to Six Flags Great America's Fright Fest with my friend Lisa. We had a good time and we were able to get on all but two of the rides we had wanted to go on. Sunday we went with Steve's mom, step-dad Bob and sister Kelley to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay.

Not much is new with Bryce since last week, except for the fact that his favorite toys are now all the balls located throughout the house. Basketballs, soccer balls, bouncy balls, you name it, and he likes grabbing and throwing them around. The stuffed Bucky and Packer football toys are among his favorite too - those make various noises when they hit something (his hand, the ground, etc.)

That wraps up our update. Have a great week.

HONOLULU, Hawaii (CNN) -- A strong earthquake followed by a series of sharp aftershocks Sunday jolted awake many people on the islands of Hawaii.
The quake caused structural damage to buildings and widespread power outages, but there were no immediate reports of fatalities.
The initial quake, which had a magnitude of 6.6, struck at 7:07 a.m. (1:07 p.m. ET) from 24 miles below the west coast of the Big Island, 157 miles southeast of Honolulu, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
Seven minutes later, an aftershock measuring 5.8 struck 145 miles southeast of Honolulu from a depth of nearly 12 miles. During the next seven hours, 53 aftershocks reverberated in the state, though none of them with a magnitude exceeding 4.4, the USGS said.
