Atty Goes To The Museum

Atty Goes To The Museum

I am always in the market for new and fun activities to do with Atlas. Lately, his attention span has been shrinking and keeping him entertained has become harder and harder. So, I decided to shake up our day a bit with a new adventure […]

Atlas George  •  20 Months Old

Atlas George • 20 Months Old

Dear Atlas George, Wow. I cannot believe that you are already 20 months old. You are so much closer to 2 than 1, and that is just something I cannot wrap my head around. My baby boy is almost two years old. Where did the […]

California Sunshine

Parenthood is HARD. It’s messy. The job is never done. Sometimes you feel like you have no control. It’s overwhelming. Sometimes it doesn’t go as planned. But all those hard moments are totally worth it. They are worth it because along with those moments, come […]

Airports + Kind People

Airports + Kind People

I love to travel, and jump at every chance we get. Even turning some of Josh’s work trips into family vacations. This week Josh had to go to the OC for work. After a few hard days at work, we met him there to turn […]

Flying Alone with Children

Flying Alone with Children

  Flying with a little can be quite the challenge at times. I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t worried about our first flight just the two of us. See, in the past, Atlas has always done really well on flights – but […]

Today, we spent the day with my mother’s side of the family celebrating Easter. I feel like our family traditions for Easter are pretty basic. We do ham, cheesy potatoes, and family time. This year, we brought back the Easter egg hunt finally having enough […]

Easter Egg Frenzy

Easter Egg Frenzy

Over the weekend, we took Atlas to his first Easter egg hunt. We found one near my parents house, and decided it would be fun for us all to go together. The Excellent Egg Frenzy is put on by the Woodbury Parks & Rec every year rain […]

Mommy-Friends + Playdates

Mommy-Friends + Playdates

Atlas had his first official play date this weekend, #attysplaydates. We got together with one of Josh’s co-workers, his wife and son. And let me just say, I had a really good time. Their little man is only a month younger than Atlas, so the boys […]

Ice Cream + Sunshine

Ice Cream + Sunshine

Everyday is a new adventure through the eyes of a child. Today, we explored an entirely new part of the Minnesota Zoo. For the first time all year, it was warm enough to stroll the outside trails. (70 degrees!) We saw bears on the Grizzly […]

Minnesota Thaw, Atty goes to the Park

Minnesota Thaw, Atty goes to the Park

All you Minnesota moms out there know exactly how exciting it is to have weather like we had today. It is March in Minnesota, and we have 66 degree weather. That just doesn’t happen. So when it does, you take full advantage. You escape captivity […]
