Another Olive Birthday Party

Earlier this week I came down with some virus. It was horrible. I hadn't been this sick in a long time. I even missed two days of work. So Scott wouldn't catch my germs and listen to me coughing all night he had been sleeping in the guest room. Meadow only had me to wake up in the morning. 

Meadow and I had breakfast while Scott slept.

I love sleeping in.

Olive's birthday party was today. Meadow picked out a cupcake picture to color for her. She was really excited to color the cherry red. Then was really excited to color the whole thing red. She kept saying, "Olive is going to love this!" She's also getting better at staying in the lines.

She does the same thing on an iPad coloring game.

I'm still not feeling great after being sick. Meadow and I read books in bed.

I came up with a meal list for the week. I was super proud of using so many items that we had laying around the kitchen.

Every week I take inventory on all of our food and Scott finds meals on what we have. He's pretty good at it.

Meadow ate some 'stachios while Brooke finished up the list with a few breakfast meals.

Then it was party time. Olive had a Rescue Bot party. Complete with pin the Olive or June face on the bot.

 I can't believe this will be our last birthday party with them at this house.


The usual Fiala family birthday friends were all in tow.

Can't believe this kid is six. Still remember when she was a tiny little thing and the Fialas claimed they were moving soon. Well, it only took this many more years for that to come true.

The kids got to make their own Bots.

Lydia gave Aaron a few pointers about how to drum.

Then the kids blew party favors into one another's faces.


She's pretty excited about being six.

I was pretty excited about eating a cupcake. Oh, hey, June.

After presents, everyone went home.



The Fiala's are letting us borrow some of their toys while they are off adventuring. 

The rest of the night was spent low key. I wasn't feeling well and Scott played his new favorite game, Madden '16.

Boo, to not feeling good. Heck ya, to Madden! Craigslist steals are the best.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part II

Mother's day means handmade cards from Meadow.
Also breakfast made by Meadow.
Then Meadow made another breakfast banana split for her and Theo.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
