One of Us Paints Another Runs on Fall Errands

Yoga before breakfast. 

These kids and standing on tables and counters...

Brooke and Meadow were out and about, so I sent over a picture of our stair railings. We need to add a couple to our 3rd floor. I spent the rest of the day painting the back of the house.

Meanwhile, Meadow and I had a bunch of errands to run. First, the library. 

I'm making our Halloween costumes this year based on a pattern that my mom never used in the 90's. 

We stopped at our favorite fabric store: S.R. Harris

We stumbled across this fabric. Should have made a pillow with it. 

Meadow just loves this place and looking at all the fabrics. 

The rest of the things I needed was at Joann's Fabrics. We also need some frames for a few posters that we want to hang up. 

Prints. Much fancier than posters.

Then Scott asked me to pick up some things from Menards. 

Our yard is going to be so beautiful in the spring. 

One of these years we need to buy some of these monstrosities.

Theo actually played in the backyard.

Lately he likes looking over the fence into the neighbors yard. 

Progress. Finally.

Theo made up a ball game that him and I played during the week. It was time for Meadow to try. 

Busy days often means picking up taco fixings from La Casa Market. You can order burritos and tacos like at a taqueria, but we go with the hot deli meats, tortillas already warmed in a cooler and everything else we need. It's awesome.

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.   

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

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend

St Nick Day! Pitty the fools who don't celebrate this Wisconsin tradition via the Netherlands. Kirby! Cat ornament! Pretty good St Nick loot this year.
