2 Days of Snow Much Fun

We were home again this weekend. After a snowstorm over night we decided to play outside.

I got the fun task of moving the car. There was a layer of frozen snow on top of the ice and the windows were iced over.

I love this Beetle and it looks even better in the snow.


We thought we'd go sledding, but the kids just wanted to play with sand toys in the snow.

Theo loves eating snow and Meadow loves picking on her little brother.

We took a quick walk around the block, but the wind was brutal.


I guess this was as far as we were going to get.

As always we promise hot chocolate when coming inside.

It's the only way to get her inside sometimes.

The next day we decided to go ice skating.

I wanted to try the free skates instead of using my own. I had a hard time finding skates in my size.

We are trying to get Theo on single blades right away. He doesn't agree with this idea.

His wooden sled slid right across the ice.

Hockey skates are definitely not the same as figure skates. I fell pretty hard trying to do a spin.

She never noticed that they don't have the stopper in the front.



Meadow's getting pretty good at skating, but she always wants to do "tricks," which makes me nervous.


Theo decided he was done skating.

It would've been fun living in the Wirth House and watching the families skate and sled in your backyard.

Meadow said she wants to be the Park Superintendent when she grows up so she can live there.


He liked the ice a lot better on two feet.

Meadow fell and landed on her face which resulted in her glasses breaking. 

My intuition was right. Perfect the skating first, little gal.

We watched the AFC Championship Game in anticipation of the big Packers game.

On Friday I finished my backpack. I'm pretty proud of this considering I've just picked up on sewing within the last year. I also have a very basic sewing machine. My machine literally only has 3 settings.


Looking good.

Let's hope it holds up on our upcoming trip to Mexico.

While they watched football I finished my next sewing project, a fanny pack. Much quicker to make than the backpack, but surprisingly harder.

In honor of the Packer game we had a snack dinner.

The snacks were epic, but the game was a big let down. Still, great season, Packers!

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
