Junethan's 2nd Big Day on NMBAC's 1st Anniversary

I was feeling lazy this morning and asked Scott to make breakfast while I stayed in bed a little bit.

I used to think waffles were the best of all pancake variants, but these just don't hit the spot like they used to since big pancakes and kaiserschmarrn.

Hi Meadow.

It finally seems that we're getting close to actual winter weather. I even got to wear my long johns today.

We don't really need much produce, but seeing as this is the last weekend for the farmers market, we got what we could. One of the farmers gave Meadow a tiny pumpkin.

Not much left other than root veggies this time of the year.

We're bringing brussels sprouts to Thanksgiving. We'd bought some from Costco, but thought we might need some more.

Meadow wanted to carry it, but kept saying it was too heavy so I helped her out.

It's been a year since the North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy Council started. It's been great meeting like-minded bike nuts and making new friends at the same time. Alexis has done a kick-ass job getting us all together.

We met up at Burrito Cubano for the one year anniversary.

While we discussed 26th Avenue and Open Streets Meadow was ready to go June's birthday party.

As soon as we arrived Meadow went straight to the toys.

All the other kids gathered around baby Lydia to check ups on her.

I guess this has something to do with June's birthday theme. I just like bananas.

The kids got to paint their own train bank. We don't do many craft things at home so I love to watch Meadow's creative side.

Hey watch out Roman! I'm drinking hot chocolate.

You knew Meadow wasn't far behind.

We got June a new bike helmet. Scott really wanted to get him a storm trooper one instead.

I think I wanted the C-3PO one.

What kid doesn't like cars?

All the kids were loving June's new toy cars.

Whenever we go over to someones house we like to extend our welcome and be the last ones to leave. 

We ended up picking up two take and bake pizzas from Aldi. It did the job.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

While driving through the Linden Hills neighborhood with the trees all lit, Meadow said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh that's what the song means!" Since it was the weekend after Thanksgiving we had to make that a reality. We decorated our little place with the Christmas decorations that made the cut in our downsize. You didn't think we'd get rid of our collection of nutcrackers? Did you? My good friend and realtor Nate invited us to his companies Christmas party. Meadow was super excited. Upon walking in they had her favorite cutouts for photo ops. Meadow was also super pumped to pick her own cookies. First we ate said cookies. While waiting for our turn to see Santa Meadow wrote him a letter. Both kids did great. Though none of them smiled. Nate later asked me, "Is Santa smiling?" Indeed he was not. We were number 87. I'm sure he was done with smiling by number 50.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Sisters, a Brother and Walking Chicago

  Summer always seems to mean one thing: weddings. Whether I'm shooting or attending, we're bound to end up at a few every year.  This time around we were heading down to Chicago from my big sister Katrina's nuptials. I feel like all our vacations are centered around a wedding or something wedding related. I wish we could go on a vacation without having to worry about being somewhere.   It also means a few repetitive trips down I-94. There aren't nearly enough unique stops off the interstate. One outlier is Foster Cheese Haus , the only organic Wisconsin cheese shop I know of. Run by the folks behind Castle Rock Organic Farms , we always try to stop by. Unfortunately for us they were closed on Wednesdays, but at least we got to spy on their darling garden out front.    Brooke and I arrived in Necedah. We decided to stop at Brooke's sister Brittany's home along the way to cut the ride in half and get her dressed hemmed.   In
