The past couple of weeks have been filled with a lot of good things. First of all, Sarah and Will came up for another visit. We visited a couple of parks, strolled around a lake, trolled the farmers market, made lots of yummy meals together, and let the kids play until they passed out.… Continue reading Summer, ice cream, and best friends!

Happy times are here again according to these photos! It’s finally feeling spring-ish and I don’t want to take a single one of these nice days for granted. This means Joe and Cece are back to wearing their matching crocs again. We’ve also been spending much more time outdoors and walking around different… Continue reading Happy Days! (via iPhone)
Despite frigid temps, this past weekend was a good one. On Saturday we took Cece to Good Times Park, which is another indoor playground-type facility. We met some friends there and she did NOT want to leave. I, however, was afraid of us getting trampled because it was so busy, but Joe… Continue reading Over the weekend…
For awhile there, it seemed as though our entire life/schedule revolved around potty training. Now that C is really getting the hang of things (and so am I!), we’ve been able to add more fun and activities back into our lives. We’ve had a couple solid play dates. Joe and… Continue reading January Bits and Pieces (via iPhone)
I have no inner pre-school teacher in me, but I have found that kiddos love art and mess. Fortunately, I do too. We made some princess crowns with our friend P yesterday as there was no going outside. This kept them entertained and occupied for much longer than I expected. And then,… Continue reading Little Princesses
No debate necessary. The best way to start a new year is with a visit from your best friend! The past three days have been a fun-filled (and a coffee-filled) blur as Sarah and I were able to finally catch up and exchange Christmas gifts (note Cece’s awesome… Continue reading Our besties
This morning was my first time ever at the Minnesota Zoo. In the past our family has just gone to Como Zoo because, well, it’s free and I’m cheap. And let’s be honest. When you go somewhere that requires admission, it means smaller crowds and more to see/do. Even though it was… Continue reading The Minnesota Zoo
Over the weekend Alysha, my very first friend I ever made in Minnesota, visited us with her daughter. She and I met eight years ago at freshman orientation at the U (also known as a VERY long time ago!). The visit was less than 48 hours long. However, not only did we get a chance to catch… Continue reading Great weekend with an old friend!
Our best friends just visited us for a WHOLE week. This means I got to play hostess and have someone around all the time to listen to my constant yammering. I was in my element. We also visited the zoo, the mall, the pool, and various parks. (And… Continue reading A week with our besties via (a new!) iPhone
All winter, we have been anxiously waiting to pack up our sunscreen and beach towels for the cabin. We got that chance over Memorial Day weekend. However, there was no need to pack anything beach-related as it was chilly, windy and cloudy. I… Continue reading Let cabin season begin!
