We love ramen around here. And anything remotely Asian and soupy. This is a beef version of our favorite pork ramen from The Best Skillet Recipesand it is yummy. The original calls for mushrooms, but this family is less than wild about fungi.

I love this pattern, but it was much trickier to make this hat from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew than I remember from last year. Curved piecing, no problem. It was stitching in the cap on the reversible side to the already constructed brim. Getting those seams to line up properly without extra fabric was tough.

When in Maine, visit lighthouses. And walk on bluffs if you can. And play in a field. And lay in the grass. And enjoy where you are.

This is an understatement. We did spend a day in Ogunquit during our trip, which basically involved having lunch at The Wild Blueberry and then walking the mile-long Marginal Way from Ogunquit to Perkins Grove. Then taking the trolley back. Hannah wasn’t up for beach shenanigans really at all on this trip, she was a little under the weather.

This little spot in Kennebunkport, Maine is splendid. I think this was the best thing we did with Hannah all week, and the next time we’re in Maine we should go back.

We just got home last night from a week-long family trip to Maine. Everyone’s been hit with a cold, but somehow today I’m the only one still under the weather. So I’m going through my photos and trying to get back into the swing of home life.

I started a quilt with this collection a couple of weeks ago under extremely sad circumstances. I’ve stalled on its progress because of those same sad circumstances, but I’ll be getting back to it next week. And I will finish it. The top is done, but then I needed to put it away for a bit. I’ll piece the back and get it quilted and bound. Then I will share more.

Hannah’s been doing the camp program at her school, but it’s only Monday to Thursday mornings. So Fridays have been our field trip days. My mom was watching my niece Grace one Friday last month, and the four of us took a drive out to Grounds for Sculpture.

This place is so odd. We went somewhere similar in Vegas over spring break, and Wild West City is a little cleaner and better taken care of. But, it’s one of those seemed-like-a-good-idea-on-paper kind of places. An old west town! For kids! With pony rides and a replica of Dodge City! And a little train! My cowgirl-, horse-, train-loving daughter would be in heaven.
