Busy Bee

Scott decided to sleep in today so I made my own breakfast and left him to making his own. 

He eats quickly before heading off to work for the day. 

While he was at work I decided to do a million things. I'm not one to sit still. Even when I'm "relaxing" I'm still doing something else like knitting. I could never have an office job or something that had me stay in the same place.

So today I made granola, anadama bread, cleaned out the fridge, made gaucamole, took a break for lunch, washed all our light fixtures, cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed and washed the floors and made butter.

Oh and I made dinner. Chicken tikka masala. I did however forget to make naan. 

  The first thing Scott says when he comes home is, "Holy dishes Batman!"

 
Then Scott is left to all the dishes while I get to relax knit. 

We end the night early with reading in bed.

So tell me again how you make your oatmeal. I bought some old fashioned oats at the store and now what? 

HA!! “Holy dishes Batman”.

What are you reading?

P.S. I have to say, it's so fun commenting now that I know where everything is!!! :)

Amanda--Just follow the directions on your oatmeal container. I do 1 3/4 cup water to 1 cup oats.

At the time of this post I was reading, What Einstein Told His Cook 2. It's about the science behind food.

Hike Trip with the Kids to Nerstrand State Park

Meadow and I had so much fun hiking and geocaching last weekend, we decided to do it again. I was busy photographing for a project in Lake City. Our state park pass expires at the end of the month so we decided on Nerstrand State Park. A short drive from Minneapolis I'd always wanted to go.  I love that they had this natural playground. First we wanted to see the waterfall. Little hiker. The waterfall was a lot smaller than I expected but it was open for free play. I let the kids play for awhile. Then we found another area to play. Mr Independent had to hike back himself. That's my stubborn little guy. We took a lunch break before geocaching.  Meadow didn't believe me she had smoothie on her face. Theo either. We finished our day by hiking almost the whole park to find the cache. Too bad Scott couldn't have joined us. 

Chelsea and the Boys Visit Minneapolis

  I told Chelsea earlier this year she was the only one who hasn't seen our house yet. She said she would visit this summer. She texted me earlier this week asking when she could come. Looking at our calendar I said, this weekend or the weekend after Labor Day.  When they arrived Theo gave her a tour of our house.  I told her we had plans to go blueberry picking and she agreed to go along too. They had never gone before.  Hoo, boy. Was I glad that I got out of blueberry picking this year. I spent the day painting back at home. I don't know why, but I do enjoy berry picking.  Afterwards we picked up food from the co-op and had lunch in Stillwater.  Then we went swimming at the St Croix River Boom Site.  We parked our towels right next to the natural spring that flows into the river.  Blake... The sunny skies soon turned to clouds and then it started raining. The kids just kept on playing.  I couldn't believe they were still out in Stillwater. Then we went over to Teddy Bear

Mama Theo Day and the Boring House

We brought home the tag along from the cottage to use at home as Theo is finally big enough to use it. I wasn't sure if it would fit with my rack but it does! He was a big fan and loved it.  Maybe, just maybe he'll learn to ride a bike this summer. After hogging our bed it was time to wake up the sleepy bear for our last Mama Theo day.  .  We biked over to Lake Harriet for breakfast. I had always wanted to try Bread and Pickle for breakfast. My breakfast burrito was so filling and Theo loved his parfait.  After breakfast we played at the playground with all the other toddlers. I started to get sad knowing that I no longer have any young children in my life. Before I know it Theo will be off at school. We had plans to spend the day at the beach but we were basically the only ones there and there were algae warnings posted.  We tried Bde Maka Ska but the water there was even worse. To the wading pool it is.  Still hates getting his face wet.  Afterwards we went home for lunch, r
