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.

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.
