Antiques and Baby Baths

Meadow has been going to bed earlier since the time change. If I don't wake up before her I usually bring her into our room with us. Eventually she gets hungry and falls back asleep. 

Morning snuggles are the best.

The part she left out is that she leaves Meadow with me as a human alarm clock. I guess I can't complain. Look at that face!

After she fell asleep I had breakfast. Scott had lunch. 

Potato and cabbage soup with croutons. I ate too many croutons and felt naucious afterwards.

She has finally run out of disposables so we moved onto cloth diapers. We've had a few leaks, but  I think we've figured out how to stop them. 

I was planning on heading to Wayzata for another shoot, but the overcast weather turned it into a fun day with my two babes.

Now that she's wearing them I don't really notice the goofy prints. 

She would rather be in her diaper all day. 

We decided to put her in this little hooded outfit we got from Emma. It will sadly be the last time she will wear it. It's a bit small for chubby checkers.

We had no plans today and decided to go to Hunt and Gather since we hadn't been there in a long time. 

Meadow likes this place. 

These would've been great for our wedding.

I love that they have true antiques and goofy knickknacks.  Holy mini Bozo the Clown inflatable whatchamacallits!

Of course I wanted this Kmart-branded rangefinder, but I passed.

They had a few vintage books and toys. 

I think Meadow wanted this styrofoam doughboy for her room.

This was my favorite find. Brooke wasn't as into the Metrodome seat cushions.

I ended up getting Meadow a book on Paul Bunyan for $2. I didn't know he was born in Maine. 

I annoy Brooke about new camera equipment all the time. I don't think she believes in the adage that you have to spend money to make money. She should check out this guy's overindulgence.

Anyways I decided against any of their ancient lenses. I'll continue to shoot from 35-55mm (or in DX mode) on my quite good 17-55mm f/2.8 DX. It's not convenient, but it has good results.

Since we were heading back this way we stopped at Home Depot and Costco. We've recently become members at Costco as an early Christmas gift to each other. So far it's been helping us save money. 

Though most of the food we get from there is organic, I couldn't help but get some pork for sausages, carnitas and pulled pork.

I spent the next hour installing this light we got at Home Depot for above the kitchen sink. I had to cut the screws in order to make it work.

Then it was Meadow's favorite time of the day. Bath time!

I think she's too young for bath letters. We played with them nonetheless while she stuck 'em in her mouth.


After Meadow was asleep we watched an episode of Breaking Bad while I knitted her some mittens.

I want to see the mittens. I gotta check out this Hunt and Gather place sometime. I think you should have bought the dough boy. :)

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
