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.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
