No more diapers!

So Kirra informed me this evening that she’s no longer going to wear diapers! I tried to change her diaper and she said, NOOO I want to wear a pull up (we had some to experiment with). All night I tried to get her to wear a diaper,but she wouldn’t budge…  So… I thought, fine,if you’re done with diapers…so am I. 
So we went out and bought more pull-ups…underwear and training underwear. God help me!

Manitou Days Parade

Tonight was the Manitou Days parade. Kirra had SO MUCH FUN! I got off work at 4:00pm, didn’t make it home until 5:00pm, had to let Tyler out, and then floor it to White Bear Lake! Of course traffic was bad again, so when I finally arrived in White Bear Lake, I sprinted over to where my family was so that we could get settled in. Kirra LOVED the candy part!!! It was like Trick-Or-Treating without all of the walking!

Chicken Farm

Since Jason was out of town this week, I packed up Kirra and we went on a field trip to Elk River to see Pam & Phil. They raise chickens and turkeys at their home, so we went out to go see them, and have dinner with them.
It was such a lovely visit. Those two are truly kindred spirits! Pam made a divine dinner of chicken, stuffing, vegetables and had wine too! Then we went out and showed Kirra all of the animals and she could hardly contain her excitement!  We ended up staying until 9:45pm. Here are some photos from our trip to the Bergstrom’s!

Farmers Market

Went to the farmers market today with Pam. It was such a blessing to take her with since she knows FAR MORE about gardening than I do. I picked up some Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro, Tomato, Peppers, and other herbs for my mini garden. She really helped me out though choosing which ones to plant!

Here is a picture of my garden. (This was taken actually a few weeks later than this post)

Memorial Day 2010

What a great weekend we had! We had planned to leave at 6:30am on Friday morning, but didn’t even wake up until 7:30am. I was up until 1:30 packing, and was just way too tired to wake up early. Jason had a long week at work as well, and wanted to sleep in too. We finally left the house about 9:15am,and got up to Lake Lydick around 1pm. It was so fun, and Kirra had a blast. We went fishing with Kirra, and caught lots of fish. 

Saturday was GORGEOUS!!! I went off in the Kayak and layed out in the middle of the lake for hours. Then I came back to shore and then sat out on chairs in the water with the gang,and ended up getting super sunburned. Well more like sun fried…..actually just about everyone got a sunburn although my shins are in actual pain. It actually hurts to stand up in the morning after the fluid has shifted!!! Kirra only got slightly pink in the cheeks but nothing too bad at all. We kept her slathered in sun screen.
Last night got super cold, i’m so glad to be sleeping in the house tonight! Our ride home was rougher than the ride up. Kirra was cranky,and wouldn’t fall asleep. We came home and after being cranky we layed her down at 5pm. Tried to wake her up for dinner,but she wanted to sleep. She finally woke up at 7:30 for a quick bath,and went back to bed at 8:30pm!
Jason made beer battered bass and grilled some steaks on the grill, and they were super nummy! I had some Sauvion Blanc to go with it, and it was just the ticket!
