Kite Festivals and Late Night Chinese Takeout

Meadow sleeps in the strangest positions.


The two of them could really share a bed if they chose sides.

Baby breakfast.

Mama breakfast.

My ankle was finally feeling better after a wicked ankle twist back in December. Now I'm back on the Wii Fit train.

Then it was time to check out the Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival.

I had a bad feeling as we got closer and I didn't see any kites in the air.

There were still a lot of folks out on the ice.

Theo was not impressed by the cold and lack of kites.

You could try out fat bikes thanks to the bike shop near our condo, Farmstead Bike Shop.

Theo was still not in the mood. Truth be told, the little guy and I were a bit under the weather.

We tried, but couldn't get the kites to stay up long.

We walked around and people watched instead.

Eventually there was enough wind for a little kite flying.

Check out that homemade kick sled.



Some kites were successful but none of the big guys were out.


Before we could leave Meadow had to leave her mark on the lake.


I had guacamole for lunch.

It was supposed to be a snack withe leftover soup, but Brooke basically ate it all.




Meadow and I ran to the library quick before it closed.


I love cuddling with these tiny tykes.

Since Scott and the kids were sick we were lazy the rest of the day.

Eventually we got hungry and ordered Chinese takeout at like 9:00.

It hit the spot.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Theo @ 3 Years

Our little love Theodore. He's not afraid to show his emotions and has a kind heart. He's the best hugger you've ever met.  He is 3'1" tall and weighs 30 lbs. He loves being outside, building things, helping us cook, playing video games, super heroes, his baby and blanket. He loves to pretend to be Link and Batman and Lightning McQueen is his jam. In the last year he's become a Papa's boy. I love the little runt. Most of the time. He still looks up to Meadow and loves everything she likes. At least when Meadow's not picking on him. He's gotten pickier with eating. Loves breakfast but not a fan of dinner. But he'll still try something when asked. Meadow is his guide and he'll basically eat what she eats. He's really picked up talking in the last year to full sentences and stories. He has a little bit of a stutter. Think it runs from Meadow to Theo. It's so much fun talking to my little guy. He hates getting his diaper changed and also

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
