Before and After Photos of our Home

Since our home is the best it's going to be while living here I thought I would share photos from when we first moved in and compare them to what our house looks like now.

The photos from 2010 are from when we first moved in so a lot of the rooms hadn't been put together yet. 

Our closet 2010




Not much has changed to this room except it became Scott's office instead of our giant walk-in closet. I always thought we would do something with the walls, but I guess that never happened.

Upstairs bathroom 2010


So long fish wallpaper and asbestos tile. Adding the white porcelain tile really brightened up the room.

Stairway 2010


This didn't change at all in the last 5 years. It's the only bright colored space in our house.

Dining room 2010


Living room 2010


Not the best photo from when we first moved in, but you get the idea.

Guest room 2010


Kitchen 2011






Breakfast nook 2010



We removed any remnants of the 1970's from this kitchen.

Scott's office 2010

Now Meadow's bedroom

If we were staying the walls would be repainted.

So long 1960's bathroom

A Duluth Cabin for Brooke's 35th

Meadow has added her commentary. Hers will be in bold. 
For those who don't remember, Scottie = Italics & Brooke = plain jane.
As tradition we stayed at a cabin for my birthday weekend. This year I found a place on Hipcamp that happened to be in Duluth.

Mexico 2020 - CDMX - Hipódromo

Day 1 After saving up for a few years we were finally ready to take a real family vacation. Our original plan was to rent a camper van in San Diego and drive down into Baja California. When we couldn't find any rental places that allow you to cross the border we decided on Mexico City.

Theo @ 2 Years

Little Theodore has got his own personality. He lets you know what he wants and when he doesn't like something.

Our little peanut is 34" tall and weighs 24 lbs.

He loves being outside, playing in his kitchen, helping us cook, building with magnatiles (Picasso Tiles) and Mama.

I think he also loves papa.

His favorite book is Pete the Cat and he loves everything Meadow likes. Pink, sparkles and nail polish.

He'll still eat anything we feed him, but he loves fruit.

He's great at communicating despite only being able to say a few words like baby, mama, papa, hi.

He's a late sleeper like Meadow. We're very lucky.

No, Theo you're not quite ten, yet.

Since Theo still can't talk yet, here are his answers by Meadow
