Bowling and a Broken Camera on Emma's Birthday

I'm so excited because I'm finally starting to "show."

She really looks pregnant in "real life." 

Scott was going to make me french toast for my birthday but we didn't have milk or eggs so we put it off until today. 

We used a sweet bread we made a while back. It was a bit saccharine to me. 

After breakfast I made dishwasher soap. 

The past week or two I've been feeling the baby move. When it does karate on me I can see my stomach move. I love watching it do that.

I love to watch Brooke, watch the baby kick.

Today is Emma's birthday. I kind of think its funny that we look alike and I'm only 3 days older than her. Since we couldn't bowl on my birthday Emma thought we should go for hers. 

The dude at Elsie's thought we wouldn't want to play for an hour and then turned around. At that point we decided to find some place else to bowl.

Since Elsie's didn't work out we met up with them in Crystal at Doyle's Bowling & Lounge.

When I wasn't looking, little Olive accidentally dropped my camera. Not just any camera, but my good camera. The autofocus stopped working properly for both the body and the lens and the viewfinder didn't work properly. Seeing as I make all my money with this equipment, the next month will be interesting to say the least. 

After seeing the lanes at Bryant Lake bowl Olive was really excited to try it out. She was actually the only one of us to get a strike. 

I only beat Olive by a few points. That's how bad I am at bowling.

For dinner Emma suggested 50's Grill. 

We got there a little early and waited in the lobby.

When I got home I tested my camera with a few different lenses. Though most of the issue is the lens, autofocus was hesitant no matter what lens was attached. 

We then headed over to Tyler and Emma's for a long overdue game of Catan.

Still hopeful that it wasn't the camera body, I played with my old school manual focus lens. Anyways, it was great to get in some Catan action.

Emma had also picked up Sebastian Joe's ice cream earlier.

After having a malt at 50s Grill, I wasn't exactly ready for more ice cream.

Emma won as usual. She's the queen of Catan at this point.

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.

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.

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.
