House Remodeling and June's Bday

Another weekend home means I'm back to making fancy breakfasts.

I helped out by making some poached eggs.

Avocado on hasbrowns with Scott's poached eggs.

Added sprouts for the parents.

And hot sauce for papa. That's me.

After breakfast Scott and I went back to working on the house. While he is working on the upstairs bathroom I am working on skim coating the guest room ceiling.

Meanwhile Meadow did her own thing. Like coloring...

helping herself to the fridge and reading books.

She loves to just take apples out of the fridge without asking. I guess I can't get too mad.

Brooke used up the last of the ceiling paint.

After two days I patched the plaster around the toilet. Working with plaster of paris is a pain, but I'm gettting pretty good at it. Next time I might use DAP's wall patch variant of plaster.

Yay no more hole in the wall.

For lunch we had caramel corn.

Then we headed over to Emma and Tyler's for June's 3rd Birthday party. We were the first to arrive and Olive was really excited to show me her room that she now shares with June.


I forgot that Aaron and Roman were coming over. Meadow was happy, too.

Meadow showed off her acrobat tricks on the unicorn.

All the fun times.

June was super happy when singing Happy Birthday.

Birthday pie.

Yum.

Olive was feeling a bit under the weather. She wasn't as excited.

Aaron and I shared a second slice of pie. I know, we're precious.

Meadow and I shared too. We aren't as cute though.

Present time. This year we got June a gift card to REI since they plan on doing some traveling after their house is sold.

We got our first snowfall the other day and Meadow wanted to keep playing before going in.

We let her play while we made dinner. And that's all we wrote.

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Labor Day is Oh So Great at the Cottage. Even This Year.

We planned on skipping the cottage for Labor Day thinking a lot of people would be up. Turns out that wasn't the case. We decided to spend our first day going on a bike ride.

We each towed a kiddo behind us. 
Pulling a bike trailer on a single speed gets to you after a while. Scott wanted to keep going down Sheltered Valley Road. We joked we should add Theo's trailer to Meadow's tag-along.
It actually worked and wasn't half bad.
