Our First Kingfield Farmers Market Sunday at the New Place

Since Brooke went back to work, I've been snuggling with these two every morning. Even with Brooke off the for the weekend, I couldn't help myself.

Theo loved looking at himself in the mirror one day so I brought it down again for him.

I made some big pancakes and tried making mine in a wok. None of them rose up this time, but mine had a wonderful eggy texture.

The key is to mix everything together right before adding it to the hot pan.

The other day I tried putting Theo in the bike trailer with the stroller attachment on. He fits pretty good, but no biking quite yet. We had to walk to the farmers market in neighboring Kingfield, so we used the stroller attachment.

We had wanted to use an infant seat in the trailer to take him for bike rides, but with the seat in there his little feet stick out.

I am really loving how walkable our new neighborhood is. Once Theo can go for bike rides we won't be using our car much except for long trips.

There wasn't much produce; likely because of the long winter. We got some bacon and eggs instead of a bunch of produce.

And some radishes.

We were walking back when Meadow saw the playground at MLK Park. I thought we should let our little rascal play for a bit.

It was actually chilly.

Our new place (I guess we've lived here 5 months, so it's not that new) has Peonies. They had already bloomed and started withering away, so I gave a few to Meadow.

Then Brooke organized the garage while I put on Brooke's new rear rack.


We've been cooking meals from the Symmetry Breakfast cookbook. It had been going pretty well until I attempted the kimchi tempura, but it failed miserably. The rest of the meal, Moco Loco, reminded me of an asian beef stroganoff. 

This book is great. All breakfast foods for this breakfast lover. 

The reason I had put racks on our bikes is that we got a Yepp Maxi Easyfit. I had planned on getting a Maxi Nexxt, which fits directly on most bike racks, but we're planning on getting a Yuba at some point. Yepp Maxis fit directly on their rack.

Anyways, long story short. We got this Yepp Maxi on Craiglist with two EasyFit adapters. I installed them, and after bit of troubleshooting, I was ready to take Meadow for a ride. She was so excited to ride around the block "in the street."

We really got this for Theo, but since he can't use it until he's 9 months old Meadow gets it for awhile. 

After Brooke and Meadow went for a ride, I put the Yepp back on my bike and we went for a little bike ride to Sebastian Joe's.

It's so easy to switch the seats to a different bike. I wish we had known about this when Meadow first started riding. 

We now live closer to the Linden Hills Seb Joe's. That means biking around Lake Harriet and up a few of said hills.

We are near so many ice cream shops that are walking or biking distance. Our old neighborhood only had Dairy Queen in the nearest suburb. 

And we were there.

Meadow wanted to eat at the shop, but I told her calmly that we had a cone for her at home.

And I delivered on that promise.

Christmas of America

Earlier this week a certain naughty kitty decided he didn't like my puzzle and took apart half of it. I put tin foil across to stop him from doing it again. I heard cats don't like tin foil. Is that actually true or just a rumor?  Brooke cleaned our upstairs closet and found two Chia Pets. Neither one of them are Chia Obama , though Homer does look awfully presidential in this pose. They haven't been growing so she created some makeshift greenhouses. My pops came back to pick up my mom and help me with my 1920's toilet. A week later and no leaks. Looks like we did a good job. This gave me an excuse to try out my Christmas present from my in-laws.    Then we headed to the Mall of America. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones we know that actually shop here. I worked here at a spin-off store of Forever 21 when I first moved to Minnesota.  I feel no shame for shopping at this monstrosity. It often has the best sales rack of any

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Duluth Sailing and Madeline Island Beach Days

Day 1 Exactly 10 years ago Scott and I took a 10 day trip to Upper Michigan. While we were on this trip I said we should do this again with our kids in 10 years. Flash forward 10 years and here we are. We are following our same route and visiting the same places with a few additions. Thankfully we had these two kids in the preceding 10 years and they're road trip pros at this point. The start of the trip takes us to Duluth. We had planned to leave in the morning and arrive around noon. While packing up the car Scott noticed our car battery was dead.  I asked our neighbor for a jump and we were soon back on track. We never left our dome light on in 4 years at the condo, but somehow have managed to do this twice since moving. I guess a dark garage will do that.  Once that was fixed we had to figure out the puzzle of fitting 3 bikes onto our bike rack. By the time we were off we were getting hungry. Scott has always wanted to try Tobie's to see what the hype was all about.  After
