I work on the cake.

Cevonne has better handwriting





My attempt at making a Holga shaped cake.



I pick up Scott from school and he is surprised.
A couple of weeks ago in his sleep Scott told me that he wanted a Batman pinata for his birthday and that I was going to forget. He doesn't remember saying this.



He wishes for a pinata for his birthday next year.



We gobbled up the cake



Scott gets ready for pinata smashing time



After one swing it opens



Scott is excited for candy



We all go back to the cube because kitty is hungry



and to get our drink on



kitty wants in on the fun too



for some reason because it sounded good at the time. we take the bus to psycho suzi's



we order a lot of food



the birthday boy gets drunk



We take the bus back but only make it halfway home. We missed the last bus and train of the night. Cevonne comes back to rescue us.

A Big Old Family 4th and Our First Trip to the Fox Valley and Bay Beach in Forever

We began our 4th of July weekend a little early with a trip to Marshfield, WI. I had to shoot a cable company store and I didn't feel like going back and forth from Wisconsin to Minnesota and then back again. Meadow found something shiny at the bottom of the hotel pool and I went diving for it.  We got to the cottage for the long 4th weekend and I enjoyed some ramen. Because, you know.

Theo may have not remembered who they were, but he still wanted to hang with the dudes. You can expect something yummy every night when the whole gang shows up. Chelsea served us her famous chicken and wild rice soup on our first night. Then we went on our fist pontoon ride of the week. Gail must bring wine on the boat ride. Oh and animal crackers of course. Not for Gail, but will end up all over the po

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation.

Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin
