Deuce Cities Henhouse


Our little guy Gus has become a bit obsessed with drawing recently. I'm surprised by this because although Finn likes to draw, he was never really into drawing in a non-stop-over-a-period-of-days-with-only-eating-and-sleeping-as-your-only-other-activities sort of a way.

Minnesotans like to talk about the weather. When it's snowy and cold we complain and grumble about it, and when's it's unseasonably warm for the entire winter (like it was last year) we feel like we got away with murder but are a little sad that we didn't get to play in the snow.
