Olive Turns One-Two-Three

We headed over to Tyler and Emma's during the biggest snowstorm of the winter . It was Olive's 3rd birthday.

She was too busy watching the Sword and the Stone to socialize. 

Meadow too.

People always think Brooke and Emma are sisters. I don't blame them.

Olive didn't want to sit her turtle chair (probably because she's three now) and we forgot Meadow's high chair so Meadow got to sit in it.

Olive was still preoccupied by the movie.

We did  bring over bread.

Two big kids.

At some point I told Olive that TV and dinner go together about as well as oil and water.

That must have done the trick.

Olive had an O cake. You know because her name starts with "O".

Obviously. 

Wait. I did not write that. Brooke totally posed as me.

She had some trouble blowing out her candles so I helped.

Nolan is growing up fast. It's great that his belly is always showing.

 I think you meant June. Nolan's in Wisconsin.

Whoa super long train track Olive.

Then we watched Olive open presents. She got LOTS of clothes. 

Meadow made a mess of everything around her.

She really wanted to eat paper.


Meadow and June played in the baby gym.

Hey June. Don't be afraid.

By the time we left their staircase was nonexistent.

Meadow's first real snow storm. Heck yeah. 

But we made it home.

You know what all this snow means? Snowshoeing.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

Pizza Farm, Another Waterfall and Two Wild and Crazy Guys Come to Minneapolis

 I've been wanting to check out this pizza farm in Northfield for a few years now. They are only open on Wednesday's and every 3rd Sunday. It just never worked with our schedules to go. When deciding what to do for dinner I remembered they had just opened for the season again.  Got a phone update and didn't want to make dinner. So, Red Barn Farm seemed like a good choice. Finally Brooke checked this off her list.    They have tables but you are free to sit anywhere you want on the lawn too.   It was the perfect day to enjoy the lawn.   They supply the pizza and you have to bring everything else, including dinnerware. They do have a small shop with a couple sodas for sale, otherwise its BYOB. The pizza is the wood fired variety that's oh-so-popular these day. Not complaining, it's good. Scott thought the pizza was average but it was delicious.  No, I didn't think it was average. It's just run-of-the-mill these days. Would go back. The kids were excited

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo
