Once again this year we were invited back to the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze in Brooklyn Park, MN.  Last year we went and had an absolute blast. So much fun, in fact – that the kids have been asking to go back pretty much every time they look at our family photo that has been hanging on the fridge all year long! Ethan points to the photo and says, “That’s the CornMAZING – That’s Mommy, Daddy, Andrew and {Read More}

Olmsted Fair Fun

My 7 Month Old is Mobile! Micah has figured out his own little crawl! It’s slow going, but rather effective. This came last week after a few days of kicking his legs wildly with no success getting anywhere, then pushing himself on his tummy, now crawling! He also goes up on his feet like he will bear crawl but doesn’t. Sometimes he gets his feet under him so he is squatting and looks like he wants to stand, but he {Read More}

Andrew learned how to float a ball across {Read More}

This past week we’ve experienced all ranges of Minnesota Winters… Monday morning our temperatures plummeted down to –14 degrees plus 40-60mph winds with wind-chill levels at –32.  Our neighborhood streets had water pipes busting open, which meant that our poor driveway was covered in ice – almost all the way up to the garage! It stayed pretty bitterly cold all week and now is warming up a bit.  However with the temperature coming just above 32 – It rained this {Read More}

Now that the frozen snowy tundra has finally hit Minnesota – *UGH!* – I am starting to see and feel the effects of the dry winter air.  Over the past several weeks I’ve been having to make sure to drink a ton of water at bed time, and keep it by my bed at all times – because the room is SO dry and I start coughing. Even without feeling ill, I usually wake up with a scratchy throat. I’ve {Read More}
