Impromptu Road Trip to Washburn, Wisconsin

4.26.2014


It was a beautiful day to take a road trip...the morning started out overcast and brisk but as the day went on the sun came out and things warmed up quite nicely.  I took my camera out and played a bit while we were out exploring in the a.m.


It felt so good to get out and enjoy being outside.  We were surprised to see quite a bit of open water as there is hardly any here in Minocqua yet.  It gave us hope!






Having done most of her growing up in Minocqua, Zoey always has called Lake Superior the "Big Water" and so Ethan and I have done the same.  Whenever we are in this area it feels like we aren't even in Wisconsin anymore...and proves the vastness of it's terrain.  It's breadth.

So beautiful.





After our exploring was through and we were thoroughly chilled to the bone, it was time to head over to Coco's Bakery for some coffee and good eats.  

Perfect way to spend a Saturday.

Playing Catch Up...I Think.

4.22.2014


Life has been extra crazy as of late...lots of pots on the stove, plates spinning on fingers.  Balancing has been the key.

These chocolate chunk gluten-free cookies are helping though.


Here are some pics of Zoey for the grandparents...Zoey had fun decorating eggs this year.


Zoey and I have just recently discovered Instagram and how fun it is to take goofy pictures of ourselves...and of our dog.




She is growing up so fast.  Pants are getting shorter.  She is reading at meal times and at the dinner table...at breakfast.


Here she is at the library...reading.


Another favorite lately is Harry Potter.  A friend that has chickens gifted Zoey one of the feathers...this is what ensued.


Pretty interesting how the Easter Bunny just happened to be in touch with someone at Gryffindor don't you think?


Life is good.  Life is busy.  We are still here.  Contemplating changes, big and small.  Listening to hearts.  Remaining open.
