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.

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: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …
