Snowshoe Sunday: Baker Park Reserve Edition

I was apparently really tired and slept way later than Scott.

I made us crepes with what we had. Apparently I failed to take any pictures of the actual crepes.

Since we hadn't all winter, today seemed like a good day to do some snowshoeing. I chose Baker Creek Reserve as it had the most trails.

Funny thing was that Brooke thought it was in Bloomington. It was in Medina on the other side of Hennepin County.

I looked at a few parks and they blended together in my mind.

We put Meadow's snowshoes on right away, but she quickly changed her mind and refused to walk with them.

So we carried her.

We have really put this Ergo to good use.

We wondered what this grain storage shed was doing in the middle of the park.

I apparently got used to the sub zero temps. 20 degrees and the sun was making me sweat.

We followed some other snowshoe tracks and occasionally took a detour.


Eventually Meadow's weight was slowing me down.

I wanted to carry Meadow on my shoulders. This only lasted until we crossed this lake.

She hates it.

Somewhere around here one of my snowshoes started falling off. One strap needs to have an extra hole or two punched. The buckle has been stretched over the years.

Before we got in the car I asked Meadow if she wanted to try snowshoeing agian. She actually agreed and walked around a bit. Poor kid has to work really hard with her little legs.

I still remember when Brooke hoped she'd go with us when she was two. At three she's still too short.

We got home just in time to watch the big Packers-Cowboys game. Go Pack Go!

I made us makeshift pasta with sauerkraut, bacon, garlic and a bit of caraway. I thought it was pretty good. 

Then the Packers won after nearly giving me a heart attack. For the next week all I'd do was read up on the Packers and listen to football podcasts.

Dork.

After the Packer game we went grocery shopping as there was an icy snowstorm coming.

We bought a boat load of oranges.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot. Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt. This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week. Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs. Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake.  Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast. Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up.  I finished crocheting my heart garland. All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's i

It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

  We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. This one was pretty creative.  I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.
