Another Fiala Weekend

With the Fiala's still here, June has been a handy helper.

We made kasierschmarrn...of course.

Olive had been asking Scott to make emperors trifle all week.

  When we were all done Meadow decided it was a good idea to lick the remaining powdered sugar.

Meadow has been loving having friends to play with all the time. June and her thought it would be fun to tie a balloon together between them.

Emma wasn't so sure.

The weather was supposed to be warmer and I figured the kids could use some fresh air. I took them outside while I worked on fixing Meadow's bike seat.

Tyler and I drove to Rogers so he could test drive a giant SUV to pull their future trailer.

This weekend was Marina's birthday party. Since we couldn't make it, Brittany sent us Meadow's party favors. She got a Wonder Woman cape, mask, a bracelet, tattoos and a balloon.  Thanks Brittany.

When my bike was ready the mama's and kids went on a little bike ride.

Meadow isn't as ambitious as June. She rode with me instead.


The kids didn't want to go home yet so we headed to the playground.

We all had fun at the playground.

A little bit after we arrived Meadow's friend Eleanor showed up!


The kids have pretty much taken over the house.

We made a deal that each family would trade off making dinner and doing dishes. Tonight was our night. Pho.

I still can't figure out how to get my stock to be as good as Pho Tau Bay.


Of course Meadow just ate everything separate.

June once again helped me when I made some Bailey's Irish Cream Chocolate Cookies.

In honor of St Patrick's Day yesterday.

Meanwhile, I started a cough tincture.

After the other kids went to bed, Meadow was finally brave enough to try on her cape.


She also wanted a tattoo. She always wants it in the same place. I told her she could put it anywhere and she chose her leg.

Her legs are still super bruised from roller skating and probably from all the playing recently.

The kids were really excited for some cookies, but they'd have to wait until morning.

These were delicious.

Mille Lacs for the Day

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

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. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

With Fall Comes Apples

  Brooke decided to make breakfast for herself. I wanted some OJ, so I poured her a glass too. Bland oatmeal is just what I needed. Scott said he was going to call his mom. My aunt got back to me about attending our wedding. She was going to have foot surgery and couldn't travel. Sometimes I wish all my family lived in one area like Brooke's. I had to tell my mom. The night before I had my bridal shower/bachelorette at my house with my Twin Cities ladies. We had dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's later that night.  I was able to finish cleaning up before Scott got off the phone. My mom and I tend to talk a lot. I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
