It's been a weird week.

I don't really know why, but I feel off.
Sort of... out of balance, or something. ? .

We've gotten lots of stuff done this weekend and are really making headway on our basement!
I've done some cooking/ baking, and tackled the mountains of laundry we had.
Ellie has a bit of a cold, but otherwise the girls have been pretty good.

So what's my problem?


I'm going to finish this post, have a cup of coffee, and sit outside in the sun for 30min.
Maybe I'll figure it out.

Or maybe not.

Either way, here are some photos as of recent I feel like sharing.

A few weeks ago, we went to the Carver County Fair with the girls.  Lila immediately wanted to ride the ponies, and this year Elle was old enough to ride as well!  Lila thought she was a big-shot because she didn't need anyone to walk beside her!

The Merry-go-round is a must for my kids... and me.  It makes them so happy!

 Ryan decided to try his hand at canning.  We started out simple and did a few jars of pickles and some banana peppers!  Not bad... not too bad at all!

My best friend welcomed her second baby girl and I got to snap some photos of the sweet new bundle!
Welcome miss Abigail Grace Ostby!

We went to the zoo earlier this week and saw a lot of activity we don't usually see.  The stingrays and sharks in the Discovery Bay were very active and the girls were thrilled to repeatedly touch them both! (even I thought it was pretty cool... this is why there are no photos, I was too busy petting sharks!)
The Lynx kitten was out playing around!  Do you see him?

And the Eagle was dancing for us!
 The girls managed to coerce me into the Butterfly Garden, but only because the zoo staff said because of the dreary day and mist... they weren't very active.  I'll look at em', but if one of those crazy things would have landed on me... I'd have taken off screaming!   Thankfully, they make for a pretty picture.

K.  I'm done now.
Off to enjoy my coffee and sun, and try to figure out how to get myself together again.

  1. The colors in the canning photos are just so vibrant! Why can't they still look like that after their bath? LOL

    Baby is adorable! :)

    Your kids are always cute ;)

    But, I'm still trying to wrap my head around why some ppl are afraid of butterflies (no, you're not the only one lol) They're quiet, peaceful, and beautiful--and, they don't bite...what's not to like? ;)

    As always, the photos are beautiful, and I hope you get your game on, again, very soon.
