Halfway through summer!

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…

MN Spartan Sprint ’17

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…

Out and About

I’m happy to say that we’ve been out and about these past couple weekends and trying out a few new (to us) places. Now that it’s April and getting a little warmer, I don’t really think I can claim hibernation as my favorite pastime anymore. We recently went to the Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul for…

Sundays are for baking, art projects, and PJs!

” A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.”  Hello from Monday! Whether your weekend was productive, relaxing, or just plain busy, I hope you enjoyed it! Ours was a mixture of all those things.  However, on Sunday Joe had work and it was my day to be home with the ladies. We stayed in our…

Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)

Hi there! It feels good to be inching towards the end of winter and to start breaking out of hibernation. A couple weeks ago, we took an impromptu four-day trip to Wisconsin Dells. My sister even joined us for part of the vacation which made it extra wonderful. She’s also the reason we even have any…

So Many Dates!

If you want to book a time to hang out with Rosie and Cece, you’ll have to do that weeks in advance because their social calendar has been booming as of late (mostly because of Joe). Last weekend he took each of the girls on a date to the location of their choice. Both girls…

ALL the things!

Well, hi! It’s been nearly two months since my last post. (As you can see, the above photo is from late summer when Target still thought kids carts were a good idea.)  We’ve been staying busy with all things fall and adjusting to Cece’s life in kindergarten. I’ve been taking lots of family pictures and even shot two weddings…

Monkey Run!

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…

Saturday Morning

Is this real life?? In the past few weeks, we’ve had a couple of changes around here. For one, the weather situation has seriously improved. However, this is March in MN so it would surprise no one if we got a blizzard this week. I think March is so wonderful and weird in that spring…

Science Museum

I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that after nearly 12 years of living in the Twin Cities, I have not been to the Science Museum of Minnesota. However, it’s never too late to right a wrong! So, this past Saturday morning we took the girls and met their cousins at the museum. Here’s a small collection…
