Nachos Navidad with the Rogerses




When Meadow requests big pancake, you make big pancake.

So, Brooke made big pancake. See how that works.

 While Theo napped, Meadow and I went to the library for a Gnome making class.

 The description made it sound like more sewing would be involved, but we still had fun.

 She made a girl gnome of course.

It looks just like Meadow.

Then I left the kids for a few hours to go to work.

We made forts and Meadow danced around.

Little guy has fun with anybody.

I came home to reading time.

We hadn't hung out with the Rogerses for a while and invited them over for a nachos feast.

You can't go wrong with nachos.

We would've hung out with the them more, but we didn't realize they were actually living in the cities full time.

And of all places they live a block from our old house.

Theo was loving the company.

Little Dora and Harper just loved playing in Meadow's room. 

After they left Meadow and I fell asleep on the couch. 

I guess the party got to them.

Honeymoon: You've Got to Go to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Day 9
I'm sure bears like popcorn, but we didn't see any. It was raining so we skipped making breakfast and ate our snack food instead.

Duluth for Work and Exploring East Lake After the Chaos

Oh, hey. It's our neighborhood.
The kids wanted to play with the Potato Heads and made our family with them.
There's Theo.
No, wait, there's the real Theo.
I had a job up in Duluth, so I asked Meadow if she wanted to come up with me. She could spend the day with Blake whose done a good job social distancing.
The poor kid has been stuck at home for so long. I stayed back with Theo, I figured these two could have a little trip together.
We arrived the night before and met little Ruth, Blake and Daniel's new dog.

We played in his yard for a bit and then a double rainbow showed up.

It was pretty great in person.
We walked through Blake's new neighborhood, Central Hillside.
Meadow even got to walk Ruth.
She loves walking dogs.

We got some food from the King of Creams and brought it to a nearby park.
Then we played on the play

Friends and Family Come from Far and Farther

My family lives on every possible extreme of the American experience (well no one is in Alaska...at this point). My brother lives in NYC, my sis is in lovely San Jose and my aunts live in Phoenix and Tampa respectively. This means I don't get to see them all that often.
For our wedding I was super excited to bring the whole family together; the aunts and uncle and couldn't make it, but would get to see Colin, Katrina and Dennis and the 'rents.
As an added bonus, my best friend of all time, the Olger Nano, was coming from St. Martin in the Carribean to officiate my wedding. What a guy!
Yes. Olger was probably one of the best wedding presents we got. 
I spent most of the Wednesday before the wedding picking up friends and family from the airport. I wish I had brought my camera, but most of our wedding weekend was chronicled by my awesome Tuska and Romenesko siblings.
I met Colin at MSP's Humphrey Terminal and we then headed to MOA to kill some time and find a belt for the w…
