Kite Fest 2020

The kids like getting up early these days. And by early I mean 8:00. Theo has also decided he's suddenly too big for his high chair.

Isn't that late for you? For me that's way too early.

After Meadow broke her glasses ice skating last week we ordered her two new pairs so she'd have a backup. We had to expedite the order and they arrived today.

Needed those glasses before our trip to Mexico City.

Hey look who decided to match their dad!

Today was the Winter Kite Festival. 



Along the way the kiddos insisted on eating all the snow.


One child prefers to be pulled by the sled while the other prefers to walk on his own.

You two have this backward.

We met up with Shannyn, Brent and the kids.

This giant bright orange fox was a new addition this year.

Eleanor loves little Theo, but he just wants his space.

The parents flew kites while the kids played with the sled.

And picked on Theo.

We had already ate, but Brent and Shannyn got some tacos.

We figured we'd be getting enough of those soon.

Then we parted ways and headed back home.

Brooke insisted we cross the lake on the way back.

I like watching all the kites.

Meadow wanted to stay outside.

After dinner we took a trip to the American Mall to find shoes only to come back empty handed.

She's very indecisive. Maybe we'll get some cool shoes down in CDMX.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
