One Last Attic Bedroom to Paint

Meadow made Theo and her Big Pancakes for breakfast. She's becoming quite the little baker and chef.

I'm not sure how little she is. I mean, yes, rather short, but she's already 9 1/2! 

Mmmm...big pancake.

Meadow loves to draw. Once in a while Theo will join. 

He needs somebody else to get him excited for art time.

We just had the final touches left to do on the walls in the attic. It was coming together very nicely. 

Just don't mention how I had bubbling in way too many places to count on this wall and had to go back and patch like 20 spots.

We decided to go with lighter colors for the other rooms since the ceilings and walls have to be all the same color. 

Makes me wish we would've went lighter in our bedroom. This looked so good.

I was working on painting this closet longer than I like. I still have to sand, patch some more and paint the other closet in our room. But for now it's out of site, out of mind.

Apparently the kiddos love black bean burgers. Make fries on the side and they'll be doubly pleased. Sometimes their fear of anything new at dinner can be frustrating (well way too often), but then they'll surprise you.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
