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.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
