The Steps – Day 3

Wade and Dad started the day off with a game of racquetball – something they both love. We had a quick lunch at home with Alex entertaining us all: Then Dad and Wade got to work. Today they were working on the risers and the trim to cover the concrete pad. Alex was really interested…

The Steps – Day Two

Due to church and a planned lunch out, Dad and Wade got a late start on the stairs. We had brunch at the Whitefish Bay Inn on the patio and all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. (The German pancake was awesome!) After a quick nap, Dad and Wade got to work on the stairs: They were…

Baking And Baking

I love trying new recipes. I have discovered that most chocolate desserts that contain cocoa powder and white sugar are never sweet enough for my taste.

Who’s In Charge Here?

We spent a lot of time outside today. Madison has been much better about not chasing squirrels so she was allowed in the front yard with us. I saw Alex and Madison walking up the sidewalk like this and had to smile:

The Place To Be

Abram (my two year old neighbor) is in heaven. Twice in the last couple of weeks he has gotten to see firetrucks (his favorite thing in the world) right outside his house. Last time it was for a house fire (nobody hurt, but smoke damage on the inside). Tonight it is for a transformer sparking….
