city carnival

after living in this town for about five/six years, we decided to explore (walk to) the annual city carnival. we watched the locals play softball, ate fried foods, listened to an awesome band, and watch folks ride the rides. we finally walked across the rail road tracks to and from the carnival, but no train. i swear, there always is a train every time i drive around there. of course, it came by after we walked away. >.< we had a fun adventure. ^_^

30 in 30

I cannot believe that in 30 days, I will be 30 years old. That is just crazy to believe.
I am joyful of the life I have and happy to be alive!!!

He did an awesome job!! =)

Just Grilling

I like to top my burgers with new things. This past week, I added baked beans on my burger. It was so delicious!!!

Brady grilled the salmon while I made a simple garden salad. I am growing some purple lettuce and arugula. Arugula is so distinct and goooood! I love it on my pizza, too. For my dressing, I have been mixing squeezed lemon juice (one lemon) and two table spoons of extra virgin olive oil. I prefer this over bottled dressing.

I had been craving for some Shrimp Taco and that we made. I added about half a cup of sour cream and half a squeezed lime into a bag and mixed it with a quarter sliced purple/red cabbage. Add other toppings as you would like.

With extra cabbage left, I used the same mixture as I did for the shrimp tacos and topped it to my hot dog. I love topping my food with new things. So fun and delicious.

What have you been grilling lately??

Mommy's Birthday

Earlier in the month, the family went to the Minnesota Zoo for mommy’s birthday. It has been quite some time that we have been here as a family. As usual, it was a grand time. I have to admit though, the zoo seems smaller now that I am an adult. My favorite part of the zoo is always the farm. I love the goats!!!

Daddy wanted a SELFIE with the goat.


Had cake for lunch and went back in for more animals and shows!

Loved the Aquarium!

Grace and her place.

Can you tell I was a little obsessed over this lady? Grace is a beauty! I love her black and white feathers! =)

I am able to find Grace at Brady's mom's house. Cutest little house on the block. So picturesque. ♥ Love the chickens and how Maybell herds the chickens, but Grace doesn't allow Maybell to do that to her. From the back of the house to the front is a gem. New flowers popping up each week. So pretty!

I hope you all have enjoyed these photos of Grace and where she lives =) I always do. ;)
