A No Nap Sunday


Meadow bug woke up this Sunday while Brooke made us breakfast. Brooke's been making us breakfast more and more on Sundays. I guess I needed a break.

I thought I would make our version of potatoes O'Brein with brussel sprouts.

This was probably the highlight of the day.

Avocado toast has been our new breakfast favorite.

She still prefers feeding herself.

Meadow's new favorite game is climbing in and out of her Bumbo seat.

We've had quite a bit of rain this spring. A night earlier nature washed out our gutters.

We sat around most of morning not wanting to do anything. It was rainy outside, so not much we could do outside. I thought we could really use a rain barrel with all the rain. We looked up how to make your own on Pinterest and then headed to Menards.

We ditched the idea of making a rain barrel since we didn't like any of the garbage cans Menards had. I also needed to pick out some paint for a birthday present I'm working on for Meadow.

While Brooke picked out colors, we got some more grass seed, landscape rocks and a few other odds and ends.

Moroccan-spcied Pastitsio is one of my favorite meals, but it just isn't the same during late Spring.

Back at home we were feeling lazy again. I'm working on a birthday crown for Meadow and wanted to finish it while she was awake to make sure it fit.

We tried to put Meadow down for a nap, but she wasn't having it.


Brooke's obsessed with smoothies lately.

Our garden turned into a patch of weeds since we planted two weeks back.

Since the rain stopped we figured we should probably work on the yard. I wasn't really in the mood for it. During the week I don't mind. I think when Scott helps me it feels more like a chore.

She's always finding something to eat.

Always have to watch her like a hawk. You never know what she might have discovered.

For not napping at all she seemed to be in a pretty good mood.

We were both lazy still. So we ordered Pizza Hut from the Xbox app. I know. I'm embarrassed.

It was too late to make dinner and we don't really care for our local pizza place.

The crust and sauce were as good as I remember, but what's up with their cheese?

I can't remember the last time I had Pizza Hut.

We watched Game of Thrones and Girls.

We've been doing that a lot lately.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

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.

Let's Skate the Lake, of the Isles

Meadow was excited for our weekly adventure, but once she jumped in our bed she didn't want to get out.
