Brooke's Birthday Bash

I waited in bed hoping Scott would make me breakfast. We didn't really have anything to make so he brought me my presents instead.

He got me St. Vincent and Cat Power records and tickets for my all time favorite artist Hayden.

I was going to get her the new Hayden record, but thought this combo would be just as good.

For my birthday dessert this year I asked for blueberry cheesecake pie. We still had blueberries in our freezer from when we went berry picking. Scott complained the whole time he made this since it was his first pie. I think it turned out really well.

This is not really a cheesecake since it's never cooked and doesn't have any eggs. I was a bit disappointed in that, but it did look pretty.

I had off and Scott decided to put off work so we could spend the day together.

As you can see snow is going well into March this year.

First we had breakfast at the Lowry Cafe. I got my favorite: corned beef hash.

I spent most of the breakfast talking to the county health department. It seems we finally have everything lined up for Brooke's pregnancy.

We had just had a snowstorm so with fresh snow we went snowshoeing at Crosby Farm Park in St. Paul. 

The weather and snow were perfect. 



I was getting tired and trailing behind.

Apparently I always take pictures of her trailing behind. Whoops. 


After blazing our own trail, we eventually made it  back to the main trail and the last lag of our hike.

One last field and we were on our way.

After snowshoeing we stopped at Annie's Parlour for a milkshake and fries.

It seemed to me that the baby wanted ice cream.

My plan was to go out for dinner and bowling. Our original bowling plans fell through because of league night.

We headed over to Bryant Lake Bowl and of course there was a private event going on, so we didn't get to bowl there either.

In the end it was fine we had dinner (I had always wanted to come here anyway) with Tyler, Emma and Olive. Emma got me, or more so for baby bo-dot, a kiwi, teething rings and a caterpillar rattle.

All of Brooke's presents are starting to become early baby gifts.

I was a little sad our night had to end early, but I had a good day anyhow.


Back at home we had some pie and watched Game of Thrones.

Not a bad way to end a fun-filled birthday; the last one we'll ever spend with just the two of us.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
