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!

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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
