This was a pretty fast project but still took the better part of a day because they had to wait for the wood to dry multiple times.  I won’t pretend anyone needs Read more […]

I know, I know, this update is super late but better late than never.  We had a fantastic time while The Scottish’s parents were in town, and we got to show them more of what the Twin Cities has to offer.  I love Minneapolis and St. Paul and each time they visit I get more ideas of places to visit and things to do.  We are already excited for next May!  🙂 This post is going to be extremely photo-heavy and perhaps not super interesting to most of you readers.  But for our family it’s a Read more […]

I feel really lucky that my in-laws are such great people and fantastic grandparents.  They stayed with us for two weeks and spent much of it playing and laughing with The Wee One.  After some slight hesitation Read more […]

My Mother-in-law and Father-in-law or as we now call them on the blog, Grandpa and Grandma Scottish are coming to Minnesota for a two-week visit!!  YAY!!  We are beyond excited.  The Scottish is taking days off from work and this guy can’t wait to see his other set of grandparents. Geez, he looks SO grown up sometimes!  I think I’ll call that his salmon shirt, just like Ross on Friends.  🙂 My in-laws want to spend the majority of their time playing with The Wee One, taking him Read more […]
