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
I hope your new year is off to a bangin’ start! (I was in bed by 10 pm on New Year’s Eve and I wouldn’t have it any other way.) I’ve been scheming and dreaming of ways to make this new year great and I’m hoping to record most of it here. As per usual… Continue reading 2016 in Review
Over the weekend, Joe ran his third (I think?) race of the season and Cece participated in her first mud run! Maybe it’s the Olympics that has gotten to me, but I felt so very proud of both of them. Joe might as well have been taking a walk in the park instead of doing… Continue reading Monkey Run!
After a morning of shopping and eating in Stillwater, the birthday fun continued on a cruise on the St. Croix! We had a dinner of BBQ ribs and got to enjoy sitting on the different decks, taking in the view, and looking out for mermaids, of course. (This is not a photo of the boat… Continue reading I’m on a boat!
Greetings from the beach! Over the weekend we packed 50 bags or so for a couple hours of fun in the sun in Hudson. This is one of my favorite days from this summer so far. We started off the morning with a playground visit and then decided that there was no better day for… Continue reading Beachable Moments
Like all parents in the summer, my ears perk up when I get wind of activities that are not only fun for kids but also free. Since the sweltering heat has subsided, the girls and I were able to make it out to a couple new (to us) parks now that we are living east… Continue reading Teddy Bears, Splash Pads, and More!
Hello! Summer is about two-thirds over and life has been a whirl of time with cousins, living it up swim-style, lots of hot dogs and corn on the cob, athletic events, playground visits, sunscreen slathering, and kids who literally never go to bed because it’s always light out (they must be solar-powered, because their energy… Continue reading In Summer!
