Theo's First Haircut and More Breweries

These kids love cereal.
And I love making a fool of myself.

Theo thought it would be fun to put the Duplo bucket on his head while he rides his bike.

I think he was imitating his paba.

Theo has been needing a haircut. I've been afraid to do it because of his curls. But I agreed to do it after Mexico.

He's been needing a haircut for months.

Looking at this photo he definitely was ready.

Yup.

We went with a kid specific hair salon since Theo is known to not sit still. He had no idea what was going on and what was going to happen. He's shy like Meadow and barely moved or reacted when the hair dresser talked to him.

The hairdresser was sad to cut of his curls too. She said she wasn't going to cut it his hair too short so you could still see them.

He was busy watching Paw Patrol.

They even gave us a little certificate with his curls.

We had to pick up more Girl Scout cookies. Theo's haircut was too quick, so we killed some time at a playground.



Scott's Craftapped membership ends soon so we decided to take advantage of it today.

You basically pay $50 for ten beers per month at partner breweries and restaurants. Except you can usually get it for almost half off on Groupon. I broke even easily, but could've used it five times as much.

I thought it was going to be packed, but there were some open tables.

We were going upstairs for pizza anyways.

He is so handsome now with his haircut. Now I wish we had done it sooner.

Theo is Picasso Tile Builder Master.

I love this place.

Some of the better pizza in town and Surly's go to beer. Except they don't have Cynic and Bender any longer. Nonetheless I got a couple new ones that were great.

Scott gets two deals a day so we headed over to Dual Citizen.

I hate when breweries are overcrowded.

This one wasn't too bad.


This place had a kids area too.

Nice curls Theo.


We always bring cards and Picasso Tiles along.

The kids have been mess monsters lately. Clean up time was needed before bed.

Stillwater Waterfall and MN River Valley Hiking

Scott had to take some sunset photos in Stillwater. 
A fall color aerial 360.
I hadn't been there in awhile so we tagged along. We left as soon as Meadow was done for school and headed for the St Croix Boom Site. I had heard there was a hidden waterfall and wanted to check it out. There's not a specific trail to it. From what I read you go down the stairs and take a left following the river. 
I think it's an old state trail that isn't maintained and has way too much graffiti. 
You basically just take the staircase down and then follow the bluff north along the St. Croix.
Some parts were a little tricky. The kids have way more fun on hikes like this. Meadow usually becomes disinterested in trails that are flat with little scenery change. 
The fall colors were popping just north of Stillwater proper.

A Tire is Flat, Let's Shop

I got up pretty late today. I'd worked until well past ten and got home around eleven after we put air back in our right front tire of the Insight. 

Our low tire pressure light comes on whenever it is cold outside. I ignored it since it always does that. On Saturday I noticed the front tire was looking a little lower than normal. I made sure we "aired it up" pronto. 

The next morning it was once again quite flat. 
Despite our need to get the tire patched or replaced, we still had plans for Sunday.

One year Scott's dad gave me a candy making set. It's basically a fondue pot that you plug in. It does come in handy for keeping chocolate warm for dipping. 

We had to make some Oreo truffles to continue our month long Christmas cookie extravaganza.
We'd already had peanut butter cups last week.
(Scott just took this picture because of my Christmas pajamas.)
Along with linzer cookies mid-week.
While Brooke melted the chocolate and mixed the truffle filing we had oatmeal r…

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late)
Every new season I change the duvet cover. 
Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that.





I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins.
I was wrong, we only needed two pans.


By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch.


As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m.


While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. HINT: she's looking for clients). She always spends…
