We just returned from a four-day trip to my in-laws’ cabin. The last time we were able to visit was a year ago and it felt great to finally return. This was a quieter visit than usual, as we were there from Mon-Thurs and only saw about 1/4 of the kids’ cousins while we were… Continue reading Cabin Life 2019
I feel like summer has barely begun, but somehow, we are already one-third of the way through it. And the days are on their way to being darker and shorter again… eek. That’s not very glass-half-full of me to say, but I think it puts into perspective how brief and beautiful this time of year… Continue reading June 2019
These boo boos just had their last day of school yesterday! Second grade and 4K are officially wrapped up. Heavy backpacks came home with old supplies. forgotten tupperwares, tattered binders and loads of papers. Teacher gifts have all been sent and I’ve got all my lists of things to get done/enjoy this summer. (The first… Continue reading Last Day of School 2019
Cheers to the new year! So many good things are upon us, I can feel it! But first, a 2018 recap. The highlights, the good photos, etc. before we are in full 2019 mode! Probably the most significant thing we did last winter was adopt Zuzu. She has been such a weird and wonderful addition… Continue reading 2018 in Review
This August, our family got rather adventurous as we packed up our three kids, stuffed our mini van to the gills, and took a road trip to Colorado! The main reason of the trip was for Joe to run the Spartan Beast there but it was also an excuse to see monuments, landmarks, and… Continue reading Road trip to Colorado!

Hi, friends! Today I bring you the latter half of summer. It has come to my attention that even with the hot weather, I can’t deny summer’s end. It’s the end of September, Cece has already been back to school for well over a month, and there’s pumpkin spice coffee creamer in our refrigerator. So,… Continue reading Summer Happenings 2.0
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Yowza! Yesterday I got to watch my beastly husband run the MN Spartan Sprint down in Welch Village. My sib-in-laws were total rock stars and watched our kids for us while I accompanied Joe to his race in the morning. We met up with them later and Cece and her cousin Michaela even ran the kid race together! I… Continue reading MN Spartan Sprint ’17
