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.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo

Mexico 2020 - Guanajuato

While planning our Mexico trip Scott discovered a city "nearby" that he said looked cool. He originally told me it was like an hour away.  I think I said a few hours away, but maybe. Except when we got our bus tickets it was actually 6 hours.  Sometimes you need to take a journey for a good adventure. Or something. We picked up this model bus for Theo at the bus station. Also he's claimed the Frida backpack.
