Another Lazy Sunday With Cevonne and Jose

Since I have to rotate my seedlings everyday Scott said I should just move the greenhouse so the bottom shelf gets sun. Now its not in direct sunlight so we will see how this works.

I thought the whole shelf would get more light this way, but we will see.

Meadow and I like hanging out in bed. I sit there while she tires herself out.

I had to put the little one down for a nap. It's kind of my thing.

It's nice that he can start helping out now. She's had enough times being nursed to sleep.

The other day Scott made my belated birthday cake. This year I asked for a cookie cake.

I found one on Pinterest that was a peanut butter chocolate chip cooke cake with chocolate frosting, chopped peanut butter cups and drizzled chocolate fudge. Yea it tastes as good as it sounds.

I skipped breakfast and went straight for Hungarian-style stuffed cabbage. I might be biased towards the sauerkraut-less Polish version.

Meadow likes helping me with laundry and when I say help I mean she throws everything around.

She always seem to be on an adventure.

We mostly lounged around in her room all day trying to think of something to do.

 I feel like every year around this time I get cabin fever. The snow is melting so no more snowshoeing and it's too cold to do anything else. There's always shopping, but then we end up spending too much.

Cevonne texted us saying they were having a lazy day in their pajamas and asked if we wanted to join. 

We were keen on that idea.

First we had to finish lunch.

Menard's was having their 11% off everything sale and we needed new ceiling fans.

We're getting close to having everything in the house perfect apart from the floors, bathroom and kitchen.

When we arrived they were more interested in Meadow than us haha.

Madeline was super excited.

We all gathered around the coffee table and snacked on homemade dips.

Madeline likes to join Duncan in the dog kennel.

Then we watched Despicable Me before sending Madeline off to bed.

Then it was bedtime for us.

Aurora Peeping at the Cottage on Mother's Day Weekend

I had PTO to use up so we made a trip to the cottage for Mother's day weekend. It isn't too often we drive up on a Friday so fish fry was a must.  I would've stayed home and painted, but you guessed it, it was still raining. On the way we took a slight detour up to Lehman's Supper Club up in Rice Lake.  We've never ventured up here from our typical route, but it's kind of the start of Up North, which means lots of restaurants for the tourists. The kiddos got spaghetti. Of course we got the fish fry. I'd rank Lehman's as a mid to low tier supper club. Ambiance is meh. Fish was forgettable. Good salad. After reading reviews later I guess the main attraction is the entree's that include a relish tray and popovers.  But they do have a great bar. My dad has been busy working on Chelsea's bedroom upstairs. She upgraded to a queen bed and we needed to get the box spring up stairs.  It would not fit. Close, but we were really searching for a solutio

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
