Cevonne's A U Alumni Now

We've had a crazy ant invansion in our home. They keep popping up all over the place especially on our kitchen counters. 

I'm starting to wonder if they're hiding behind the backsplash.

I whipped up some homemade ant killer: sugar, water, borax and peanut butter. 

I also made bananas foster oatmeal. Scott really liked it the last time I made it. When I told him I made breakfast he said,"Ew! Oatmeal." Last time I make him breakfast. 

I'd have reacted differently if I had known it was banana fosters oatmeal.

I'm starting to have to get up at night to go to the bathroom. I do not like that. And my belly button is popping.

So cute.

The ants mostly hang out by our dirty dishes. It was Scott's turn and normally he'd just leave it for a few days but the ants grossed him out. 

I started eating the oatmeal and noticed a knife with peanut butter and  a million ants on it. I just had to do all the dishes.

My yearly photo of Scott doing dishes.

Har har.

It was supposed to rain later so I suggested we do some gardening. It was really hot and humid. The pregnancy heat was getting to me. I had to take a break every 10 minutes. I'm actually not looking forward to summer. 

This is so sad. Brooke loves summer. At least we got the garden prepped a good growing season.

Jose had planned a surprise graduation party for Cevonne at Gluek's downtown. There was also a Twins game going on so I suggested we not drive. My bike tire still needs to be changed so the bus we took. 

I had been pumping my tire the night before for a night ride with Ben when my pump broke. I had replaced her tube and everything. So, really, it's just a matter of getting a working pump. 

I wish we went here more often. It's a great old building in a downtown with too few of them.

Cevonne was so surprised and happy to see everyone that came out.


We got the whole back room just for her party. 

 Now Cevonne and I are both U grads.

This is them "acting natural".

This is me taking a photo from downtown alley. I'm a sucker for these shots.

While everyone else ordered drinks I sipped on some iced tea.

Poor babe. She's got to miss beer.

Cevonne was really excited to be done with school and thought she would celebrate with lots of shots. 

Cevonne's parents were nice enough to treat everyone to dinner. I had the sausage party.

And more shots.

This was getting real. 


She may have been a bit tipsy, but she cut the entire cake.

Hanson was clearly tired.

During the middle of the party the storm clouds opened up. While everyone else left in their cars, Scott and I waited in the rain for the bus back home.

We headed back on the road when we got home.

Some people were heading back over to Cevonne and JT's house for more partying. 

Cevonne had had enough partying I guess. 

Madeline was too excited with all the people there and didn't want to go to bed. She entertained us instead.

We watched the Billboard Awards, which really means I made fun of the pop tarts for a few hours.


Scott and I were hungry again so we went home and had leftovers.

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.   

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

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend

St Nick Day! Pitty the fools who don't celebrate this Wisconsin tradition via the Netherlands. Kirby! Cat ornament! Pretty good St Nick loot this year.
