Let's Go to Anna'a Place

We all slept in super late this morning. This winter break has us staying up late and sleeping in.

It's going to be so hard this next week when Meadow goes back to school.

Meadow asked the other day why we still have Christmas decorations up if Christmas is over. I said we could take them down and she angrily said, "No! They have to stay up forever!"

So, the decorations stayed up a little longer.

Today we had a playdate with Anna and the kids. We hadn't seen them in awhile.

I stayed back and worked on some photos and videos I wanted to put together for our Northwoods NYE post. I hope you enjoyed them.

Meadow was a little shy at first then joined right in.


Back at home I was prepping gumbo and finally peeled away from my computer.

Green gumbo. One of my favorite meals.

This was one of Meadow's favorite meals when she was a toddler.

With traveling, being sick and the extra sweets around Meadow hasn't been eating well. With the new year she doesn't get any sweets until she has her dinner.

She also won't get any boxed mac and cheese until she's ate 30 dinners. As of writing this she's already up to eight nights in a row! 

If she eats all her dinner she gets hot chocolate.

She was so excited to use these mugs one last time before they went away for the year.

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

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.   

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
