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.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend
