I had a photo shoot at the College of St. Scholastica so we got to stay the night at the Radisson in downtown Duluth. Of course we went swimming.
This was the best pool yet. The temperature in the room matched the water temp.
Meadow has been warming up to swimming a little each time she goes. This time she actually kicked and moved her arms.
We are getting used to staying at hotels.
We stayed one extra day in Duluth at Blake's house.
I don't know why, but I love this picture of my honey bunnies.
We were back at home by the weekend.
I whipped up my favorite breakfast. A few weeks ago I ran into Emma at the farmers market. We decided to get a giant basket of bell peppers and split it. I cut up, sliced and froze all the peppers into six containers to use all winter. I had to chisel some off for our meal.
This has become our new go to breakfast. I miss you crepes, but hash is so good.
Meadow loves making this face lately.
She can be cute too.
Scott had to meet up with some potential clients. The weather was pretty nice so Meadow and I hopped along with Scott and went for a walk around Lake of the Isles during his meeting. Meadow stayed on the path for awhile then ventured on the grass to explore.
After a succesful sales pitch for a wedding gig I met up with my family.
I notice we seem to be the only people who let their young toddler walk on their own. I see lots of kids bigger than her in strollers all the time.
We bascially let Meadow walk wherever she likes as long it's not a street or in front of someone. Strollers are for babies, not toddlers.
Back at home we ate leftovers for lunch before sending Meadow off for her nap. Actually I think she fell asleep on the ride home and Scott carried her up to bed.
There wasn't a whole lot to do today. As much as I love the break we get when she naps it would be nice to have a whole day to do whatever we wanted.
In all honesty I miss Meadow when she takes her naps. Perhaps in another year I won't feel that way.
I made a variation on sweet potato and tofu curry with cabbage instead of bok choy. The purple sweet potatoes turned the whole meal a violet hue.
I had Meadow try on her costume. She did not like the hood and couldn't figure out why she couldn't take it off.
An apple made everything better. Life with kids...
