A Como Zoo Day Out

Today seemed like a good day to go to the Como Conservatory. Once everyone had napped, got dressed and fed we were on our way. 

Apparently Theo wasn't done napping.

To get Meadow moving faster we promised her we would stop for donuts.

We stopped quickly at Bogart's.

Her new Snow White dress looked pretty cute under her big girl jacket.

We had to settle for the lavender cake donuts. They were out of the good ones.

Still good though.

Meadow lucked out with the donut holes.

Soon we go to the zoo and went into the very steamy rain forest room.

Theo liked watching the fish.

Meadow was not afraid of the snakes.

Even Snow White was there.

And ants.


We cut through the gift shop and Meadow really wanted this bear hat scarf mitten combo.

Then we stopped briefly in the kids room.

Meadow asked why there was money in the fountain, we told her if you throw a coin in you can make a wish.

She later whispered to me that she wished we were a royal family that lived in a castle.

Aww.


I had rented a GoPro Fusion for a 360 shoot at Duluth's Spirit Mountain. We decided to play with it at the conservatory.

The lighting is always perfect in here.

Clearly Meadow's Snow White costume was a big hit.


I thought today would be super busy, but it wasn't at all.

We watched a snake for a little bit.

Then we stopped to make a giraffe.


I made one for Theo but he destroyed it right away.

That's my little troublemaker.

We did a quick tour outside to see the zoo.

Meadow was mad she had to wear a coat today because it didn't go with her dress.

Meadow was most excited to see the giraffes.

"Take my picture."

And I did.

Back at home we had lunch on the floor.

Just kidding, Theo likes to eat his leftovers after he's done at the table.

This kid loves to make a mess.

The kids were long overdue for a bath.


They don't mind sharing our little tub.

Theo loves cooking in his kitchen.

Or throwing everything on the ground.

Then we ended the night eating popcorn and making paper snowflakes.


Pretty.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot. Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt. This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week. Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs. Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake.  Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast. Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up.  I finished crocheting my heart garland. All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's i

It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

  We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. This one was pretty creative.  I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.
