2011 Better Late Than Never



 While looking through previous posts I'd written in the past I remembered how I used to make best and worst lists of the previous year. I thought I would do that again. Even if it's a month late.

Best of 2011 
1. Marrying the love of my life.
2. Getting a whole week off for vacation.
3. Cheesefest and Door County
4. Having 2 of my closest friends become new moms.

Worst of 2011
1. Witnessing a tornado. Something I hope to never experience again.
2. Not being able to go to California with Scott.
3. Spending all our holidays here without family. Although Freaster and Friendsgiving were fun.
4. Scott having to work Sundays.
5. Waiting many months for our freezer.
(There really wasn't many bad things this year)


Things I Look Forward to in 2012
1. A real honeymoon?
2. Going to Chicago for Scott's sisters wedding.
3. Joining our first CSA.
4. Camping in summer
5. Becoming a better bread baker.

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. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. 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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
