The spring warmth was nice while we could play in the back yard, ride bikes, and go to parks, but the cold winter has returned so we've been shoved back indoors.  Luckily swimming lessons have also returned and it's nice that the girls can go in without us now.  We also swung by the newly renovated Capitol during one of our cold days and had fun exploring there. They continue to grow and every day is full of Nina's reading and drawing and Pip's stories and instructions.

Crazy warm

The Naks have been getting out during this warm streak.  One day it was warm enough to skate, the next to hike, the next to bike, and the last to hit up the golf course!  We seem to be very busy without anything really happening or any stories to tell, but we're enjoying life nonetheless.

We went to the girls' school Bingo night where Pip was 1 away from Bingo in 5 spots and then lost.  She went up to go to the bathroom and her card immediately won the next game.  Ooops!  She didn't care too much since she still got to pick out some cruddy prize.

Flying into February


The days are going quickly as we're in our winter routine.  School, daycare, skating, wandering, reading, playing, coloring, repeat.  We've seen a few fun events around town between the WBL Ice Shanty Art Project, Crashed Ice, concerts, and the planetarium.

Have an ice day

It's such a Minnesota heat wave that even Papa decided to make the visit this January.  We basked in the upper 20s at the Winter Carnival and while ice skating down the street.  We all had a great time and were sad to see them go after such a short trip.
