Dinner for Lunch and Beer for Dinner

Meadow and I are working on a cat purse that she designed. I tell her what to do and she's been doing all the sewing herself.

She's going to be a fashion designer.

Her new favorite show is Project Runway.

Little buddy loves playing with cars.

Meadow likes Wii Fit.

We put back together the learning tower since Theo loves climbing up things. He thinks it's the greatest being able to see everything.

He helped me make some chickpea flatbread.

I almost finished my book except I ran short of a few pages. This time I actually finished it.

That's after she ordered a few more pages.

Photo books are expensive, whether digitally made or by hand. 

Roll, roll, roll the dough until...

you have some flatbread.

Since we were going to meet up with some friends during dinner, I made dinner for lunch. Falafel.

These two.

We met up with Shannyn, Brent, Allyson, Tom and their kids at Utepil's taproom.

This is one of my favorite Minnesota breweries. I'm a sucker for good German beers.

The kids went straight to working on their coloring. 

Theo and Allister are a few years apart, but that didn't stop them from having some fun.

Next year they will probably play together.

We happened to grab the table by all the games. 

The kids might have scared everyone away.

The place was packed when we arrived.

Sadly the food truck that was scheduled didn't show up.

We were driving home and decided we needed to get dinner and there's no better option then World Street Kitchen.

My Korean burrito hit the spot. Too bad Meadow's kids chicken was super spicy.

My Mexican egg sandwich was also epic. Sorry, Meadow.

We then headed across the street to the Waffle Bar for dessert.

I'd wanted to try this place out for a while.

Our waffle ice cream sundae was pretty good, but they should really tone down the bright white lighting.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
