It's Damn Cold Outside

We had nothing planned for the day and it was below zero. I had no intention of going outside today yet had nothing to do inside. 

Even Peanut couldn't stand to look outside. It was that cold.

We looked at photos from last summer. I wish I was in Chicago and that it was summer right now.

I'm ok with winter, but when it's gets to 10 below, there's nothing to do but stay inside.

The only thing I had to do today was make baguettes.

Poolish baguettes that is.

Scott decided even though it's our day to do stuff together that he would rather not get dressed and edit photos instead.

I thought it would be better to be productive than sit around for the remainder of the day.

Our house feels so empty and less cozy when we take down the Christmas decorations. I've been slowly taking down a little bit everyday for 2 weeks. The real tree is the last to go.

I took off all the ornaments. Tomorrow I will take down the lights and eventually bring the tree outside to cut up in the spring.

Scott was still editing and I got bored so I took a nap.

This was right about the time I was finished. Now she didn't want to do anything.

I shaped the baguettes. Then Tyler and Emma asked if we wanted to come over for pizza and games. I really didn't want to go outside, but I was bored at home.

I really wasn't in the mood for Pair of Dice Pizza (we live in the hood, yo), but I also didn't have the ingredients necessary for anything quick.

After dinner Scott wouldn't stop talking about ice cream, which got us all craving some. While they put Olive to bed, we drove down to our favorite ice cream shop, Sebastian Joe's, to pick up a couple of quarts. With the temp being in the negatives we got 25% off. 

Deal of the century!

After a quick round of Creationary we battled it out in Catan again.

After a while we all had a sugar high from all the ice cream. I think this was the best game of Catan we've ever played.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part II

Mother's day means handmade cards from Meadow.
Also breakfast made by Meadow.
Then Meadow made another breakfast banana split for her and Theo.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
