Pancakes and Flash Photography

Today's weather promised to be in the 70's. Sounds good to me.

I of course would be too busy to partake in any fun.

For breakfast we had pancakes and smoothies.


Scott finished work in the basement while Meadow and I had mama-baby time.

It took way longer than I thought to get all this done. Finally pretty much finished.

We enjoyed the weather by going for a bike ride. Meadow sure got heavier since last year. Going up hills was much more difficult with her on back so we stuck to the Victory Memorial Parkway.

Brooke whipped together some summer rolls from leftovers.

Mr. Joel, a friend of mine from the neighborhood board, came over and we pulled off some bulging tile. The plan was just to repair this section, but then we changed our minds. All this plastic tile would have to go.

Scott ripped off the old wallpaper and found ghosts of bathrooms past. It looks like our bathroom originally had the fake or maybe real subway tile that went up past the vanity mirror. 

While Scott and Joel worked on the bathroom I cleaned all the dust in the basement. Now it doesn't feel so scary to go down there anymore. Yes I am still afraid of dark basements.

It could still use a coat of paint on the dry wall, but everything else looks great.

My belated birthday cake was a Double Chocolate Bundt with Peanut Butter Filling. Meadow enjoyed the cake after her nap.

She slept through the warmest part of the day. We tried to catch the end of it while Scott made dinner.

The only thing I could come up with was mixed green ravioli. Why the flash Brooke?

My friend Brian decided to join us for dinner.

I showed off my flash photography skills.

In both of these photos clearly.

Scott always complains my photos are blurry. I fixed that problem.

Meadow was just happy to have Brian over. We all scarfed down the ravioli and talked about the future.

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
