Pear and Apple Crisp

Peter has been worried about daddy going to jail lately. 
{Yesterday he prayed -- "Dear God, help daddy not to go to jail. Just in case he does something wrong."}

Not because daddy has been known to do anything wrong.
Simply because we've been talking about life rules and how children need to learn to 
follow the little rules so they will be ready for big rules when they are bigger.

Or they could go to jail. You know, for breaking a big rule.
Peter kinda latched onto that one.
Is it a very small place?
Can you talk to anyone?
How do you get out?
Is there any food?
If they served crisp like this in jail....let's just might want to go for a day. It's that delicious.

Pear and Apple Crisp
inspired by Mmmm is for Mommy

Crumble Topping:
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts

1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature

3-4 pears, chopped
3-4 apples, chopped [or 6-8 apples if you don't have pears]
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Press the crumble together with your fingers until combined. Chop the fruit and toss with flour, sugar and spices. Spoon fruit into a rectangular glass baking dish and spread crumble on top. Bake for 45 minutes or until fruit is soft and crumble has browned.

Be good. You can enjoy it at home too.

Spring Break in Singapore

Many people have been confused by our answer to the question, "Why are you going to Singapore?" Going to see the coolest airport in the world doesn't seem like a worthy enough reason to go! The Changi airport in Singapore is VERY hyped, so you've probably heard about it, especially if your Internet algorithm sends you all the travel content. Now that we've been there, we can let you know that the description online is definitely sparklier than the actual thing.  For the most part, it's a pretty average airport. There are four terminals [we visited three of them], each with their gates, normal stores, traditional carpet, etc. There are a few unusual things hiding in corners here and there, like little gardens [butterfly, cactus, sunflower, orchids], a long slide [we didn't try it], and a movie theater [pretty small]. The reason it gets so much attention is probably for its newest building [The Jewel], which is pictured above. The center is made up of this i

Finishing Another Year | 2022 Went Really Quickly

Twenty twenty twooooo!! In many ways, this year was an improvement over the last two years! We stopped wearing masks at school in March, we stayed home for most of the summer [that made the boys happy], I took a college class and read a lot of books in preparation for my new role at work, Ezra played soccer and basketball this fall, and I've been able to accomplish some fun challenges with my #40before40 list!  We had a couple mouth procedures this summer too -- wisdom teeth extraction for Peter and braces for Ezra! It was a good summer to spend more time at home. Stats:  7 blog posts 220 photos on Instagram  26 posts on Facebook  9 posts on Strava  2 family photos with the tripod!! I asked family members to reflect a little...some participated better than others. :)  Most memorable times this year:  Ezra: playing with the Evans' both in the winter and summer  Laura: water sports in San Diego Tim: taking Peter to work where he was meaningfully helpful Best part of the year: Ezr

Another January and February | 2023

January 2023: I went snowshoeing and cross-country skiing with friends, once each. I completed a 50 mile walking challenge #somuchwalking, even though it was REALLY cold. I took Ezra up to Mission Ridge a few times. I made tacos for my family.  February 2023: We had a day that was warm enough to play disc golf. Ezra got new "chains" in addition to his braces and the adjustment to that was pretty painful. I hiked up Icicle River road with a friend and ate a veggie dog. I dropped off Tim at SeaTac and missed him for three weeks. I visited a friend in Portland, ate a Voodoo Donut, and took a city lights helicopter tour. 😯 I only have 13 photos on Instagram for two months. It's been a rough start to the year. It seems like the beginning of every year is difficult. Maybe I should experiment by spending January and February in the southern hemisphere sometime!  It's time for a quick #40before40 update since I have less than two months until my birthday.  18.
