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!
Yesterday, Jake and I took Penny and Cece to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. (The things you’ll bring your kid to once you hear the words “free admission”…) The lesson I learned is that if you wish to visit an art museum and actually get a chance… Continue reading Cece and Penny do the MIA
If not for the teamwork between Rose, Sarah, and I, we wouldn’t have been able to get these great shots of the kids at the zoo. Sarah and I have discussed that Will and Cece don’t have to get married. But, I mean, we wouldn’t be against it. And maybe they would have the… Continue reading Holy. Cuteness.
We drove to Madison this weekend to participate in an epic birthday celebration for Samantha and Michaela, our super sweet nieces. The multi-part party first consisted of Pump it Up (aka, an inflatable good time). All of the kids obviously had a blast, but it’s possible that I’ve never seen Joe and my brother-in-laws ever have so much fun.… Continue reading An Extreme Birthday Weekend
February thus far has meant… Figuring out my new lens (What? You mean I have to know stuff and it doesn’t just magically take better photos? Bummer.) Makin’ winter food Getting the heck out of our living room, as… Continue reading February Instagrams
My big news over this past weekend is that I got a shiny new camera lens. I know that a new lens does not come close to compensating for my lack of photographic skill, experience, and knowledge, yada yada. But I do know that when I use it correctly, I’m just thrilled with the results.… Continue reading Tots and Tea Parties
After my recent bear-like hibernation, it felt refreshing to get out and be social this weekend. Saturday was a quintessential Minnesotan winter day as it consisted of sledding and tater-tot hotdish with the Knudsons. That same night, after we came home and Cece went to sleep, I had a lovely girls’-night-in with my cheer… Continue reading Our Weekend: Sledding and Super Bowling
As of late, C has… attended a play date at the Maple Grove Community Center. enjoyed some serious spaghetti. learned new vocabulary while getting Janice’s oil changed. And, as always, she’s getting way too grown up too fast.
Yesterday a few of my sis-in-laws and I attended a little Halloween party hosted by grandma. To be clear, this meant five adults, yes. It also meant that the other six attendees were four years old or younger. We carved princess pumpkins, got the kids in costume for a good 10 minutes for pictures, watched a… Continue reading Pumpkin Party
This week I am watching Miss Penelope for a few days, which means I’m trying to figure out how to function with two little girls under one. C is rather jazzed about this situation. She keeps pointing at Penny and calling her “baby.” And P is enjoying the abundance of new toys. For the most part, they’ve been… Continue reading Two little monkeys
