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Meadow's obsession for pancakes has been replaced by waffles.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

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

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Two Years As Homeowners

I have to admit, being a homeowner is hard. There are a million things I want to do with this house. The two things that are keeping me from doing those things are money and time. I hate when people use the excuse "I don't have time" because really you do, you just put what you think are priorities first.  Were also not the handiest people. I have many projects waiting for the help of my dad. Like sanding our floors. I've never done anything like it before so it scares the crap out of me to try it. I can only hope that a year from now things will look a lot different and that I can maybe get a few things that I'd like to see done, get done.  And with that here are some progress photos from the last 2 years.  Our closet 2010 2012 2010 2012 Upstairs bathroom 2010 2011 2012 I hope this is finished before next year.
