We Finally Did Nothing

 

For the first time in a long while we had no trips planned. With our abundance of apples we picked up last weekend I made German apple pancake for breakfast. 

We bought two big bags of apples along the road on our way back from the cottage. We've been making apple sauces, dumplings and even a pie. And they're still not gone.

The night before I asked Theo what we should do tomorrow. He said, "drive". I asked where we should drive to and he said playground. 

We didn't have to drive as we walked over to our neighborhood park. I was surprised to see four other families there when we arrived. Almost as soon as we showed up they all left so we had the place to ourselves.

We stayed for over an hour. The kids didn't want to leave.

When we were walking to the park we passed the neighbor boy who mentioned it was his brothers birthday. Meadow made him a card and dropped it off for him.

This kid just spends all her days cutting up old fabric and making outfits for her and Theo’s stuffies. She’s pretty cool.

She can make things out of nothing. I love her creative mind.

The room may be strewn with fabric scraps, but that's alright.

Check out all the new outfits she made.

I didn't take any good pictures of it, but I made chicken mole after Meadow had mentioned that cocoa is used in it. I guess kids do learn from PBS shows.

Apparently Meadow had written my dad a letter asking for antlers. He followed through and gave her some when we saw him at the cottage. I asked what she planned to do with them and she made a nice centerpiece on our table. 

The end.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

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. H
