At Home in March (And Ice Skating in Maple Grove)

 

The kids asked for crepes for breakfast. 

 I have to get my crepes between batches. 
 
 
Our main cast iron skillet has gotten to the point that we can actually use it for crepes!
 
We found tenants for our downstairs rental and after 6 months of working and house projects we were ready to take a break and just play. Our unit needs work but it can wait. 
 
I think we were playing hide and seek before Brooke and Meadow decided to go an adventure.
 
With ice skating still on our minds and only one rink still open we had to get one last skate in. 

Just Meadow and I went up to the ice skating loop in Maple Grove. Because of the late season and warm weather there was hardly anyone here. 

Always trying new tricks. I told her I would sign her up for classes.


When the zamboni came out we took a playground break. 

Only kid at the playground too.

Once the ice was ready she was back to doing her tricks
 
This kid always wants to do her tricks.
 

Theo and I built some epic Lincoln Log cabins while they ice skated.

Gotta say our Grand Hotel turned out pretty, pretty good.

 When they got back we were on to building block cities.

I love that Meadow is finally old enough to play more adult games with me. She loved Scrabble. 

The next morning we ate big pancakes. What a weekend of breakfasts!

Meadow got a sewing book at the library and wanted help making a pillow. 

It was finally warm out which means lots of melting snow. The kids put on their rain suits and had some fun. 
 
Splash!

T-minus 2 Months to Wedding

The second week proved to be more of a challenge for our local month. We are starting to crack down on wedding plans. We both bought our wedding attire from the Mall of America. I did feel a little guilty about that. I had originally wanted to buy my dress from a vintage store. I have been looking since we got engaged (even before that) and everything I found wasn't in my size or a style I liked.  Then we bought some candles at Target while doing our registry. Scott bought lunch at Jimmy John's.  All our groceries have been local. At least we're still good about that. Scott was in southern Minnesota yesterday shooting a wedding. I didn't think he was going to come back that night and scared me when he got home.     My sister's wedding is coming up in 2 weeks and I get the honor of making the cake. I tested out different cake recipes.  While Scott made pancakes.   We started out eating by each other.  Then Scott move

Honeymoon But With Kids: Bayfield, Porcupine Mountains for a Night and Unexpected Motel

Once back on the mainland Meadow got to pick up her Junior Ranger badge.   This one was made of wood! Before heading to our next destination we went in search of lunch in Bayfield. We got a simple lunch from a tiny little bakery, the Starlit Kitchen . Meadow says this was the best sandwich she ever had.  The bread was very good.
