Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot.

Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt.

This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week.

Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs.

Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake. 

Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast.

Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up. 

I finished crocheting my heart garland.

All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's it was.

Salty caramel for me and the usual Oreo for Brooke while Meadow took about a third of each our cones.

Since it was only 5 degrees we got a 30% discount.

Back at home it was time for lunch. Of course we ate it in a heart shaped bowl.

We only have one.

I needed to rest my foot so Meadow and I watched Charlie Brown's Valentines episode.


I made a heart-shaped bundt cake while Brooke prepped dough for Valentine's pizza.

This pan makes the perfect servings.

Meadow figured out how to get into the nook. She was writing on everything but the chalkboard so I helped her up to the real thing.

Even when I took the chalk away she didn't want to leave the nook.

Or stop drawing on everything.

I asked Emma if they wanted to join us for dinner. To go along with today's theme we had heart shaped pizzas.

This was a damn good Hallmark card appreciation day. The Fiala's always make for a good time.

Meadow is suddenly into hugging. 

After I gave Tyler a bunch of my old clothing I read Olive a story since she asked me. Brooke tried to catch this moment but was too slow. Nice try killer bee!

It was hard to do with one working foot.

Happy Valentines!

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
