Little Dora's Birthday, Old Friend's Come to Town and Paddling on Mother's Day

I planted all my seedlings earlier this week. I assume the danger of frost is over so why not get them started early.

Meadow and I made momma our favorite waffles that we usually eat weekdays made with golden and white flour and quick oats.

They always make this during the week while I'm at work.

Meadow's obsession for pancakes has been replaced by waffles.

Breakfast it the most important meal of the day. Even if I don't belive it.

We biked to the farmer's market for the first time this year. Still not much to choose from. In a few weeks it'll be wonderful.

We came home empty handed. I was hoping for some salad greens at least.

Later in the afternoon we biked over to little Doralyce's second birthday party at North Mississippi Regional Park.

They must've gotten that idea from some other family with a toddler.

Doralyce has grown so much since we saw her last.

Meadow and Doralyce played with bubble guns and knocked over all of the bubbles. It was fun while it lasted.

Davin made ribs, which were just right. I think I ate more than everyone else.

The kids also got party horns. Meadow did not like the ones that made noise.


We also finally got to meet baby Harper. We really need to see these guys more.

Especially since word on the street is that they will be moving to Illinois soon. I'll miss these guys so much if that comes true.



After the party we biked over to Tyler and Emma's house to meet up with some old friends.

Ben and Jordan were in town from Seattle!

Meadow and June warmed up to Ben quickly.

We caught up on happenings with friends and later Jordan joined us.

We really need to visit Seattle soon.

We have too many road trips we want to do.

For Mother's Day I chose to take our canoe out. Awhile back on Instagram I saw some people canoeing the Rice Lake chain of lakes. I thought that might be neat to check out.

Momma even let me cast my reel a few times. Thanks for sharing another Mother's Day with me, killer bee.

Christmas of America

Earlier this week a certain naughty kitty decided he didn't like my puzzle and took apart half of it. I put tin foil across to stop him from doing it again. I heard cats don't like tin foil. Is that actually true or just a rumor?  Brooke cleaned our upstairs closet and found two Chia Pets. Neither one of them are Chia Obama , though Homer does look awfully presidential in this pose. They haven't been growing so she created some makeshift greenhouses. My pops came back to pick up my mom and help me with my 1920's toilet. A week later and no leaks. Looks like we did a good job. This gave me an excuse to try out my Christmas present from my in-laws.    Then we headed to the Mall of America. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones we know that actually shop here. I worked here at a spin-off store of Forever 21 when I first moved to Minnesota.  I feel no shame for shopping at this monstrosity. It often has the best sales rack of any

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Duluth Sailing and Madeline Island Beach Days

Day 1 Exactly 10 years ago Scott and I took a 10 day trip to Upper Michigan. While we were on this trip I said we should do this again with our kids in 10 years. Flash forward 10 years and here we are. We are following our same route and visiting the same places with a few additions. Thankfully we had these two kids in the preceding 10 years and they're road trip pros at this point. The start of the trip takes us to Duluth. We had planned to leave in the morning and arrive around noon. While packing up the car Scott noticed our car battery was dead.  I asked our neighbor for a jump and we were soon back on track. We never left our dome light on in 4 years at the condo, but somehow have managed to do this twice since moving. I guess a dark garage will do that.  Once that was fixed we had to figure out the puzzle of fitting 3 bikes onto our bike rack. By the time we were off we were getting hungry. Scott has always wanted to try Tobie's to see what the hype was all about.  After
