LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom at Pearl Harbor
I am not much of a history buff. I prefer to visit and read about events and places related to my heritage. But when planning a trip to Hawaii, I was faced with the option of going to Pearl Harbor. Did I want to visit the place where over 2,000 soldier and sailors died? Not really....

LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom makes homemade pasta
It was a very Merry Christmas at this Supermom's house. But now, the Christmas tree has been taken down. The decorations put away. The mess of the holidays has come and gone once again, and this Supermom is glad to have her house back in order. The holiday season brought a few new...

LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom goes hunting
I do not hunt. I did not grow up in a family that went hunting. I have never taken hunters safety and, up until about a year ago, I had never...

LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom creates superfans
Last month, our family visited family in Santa Rosa, Calif., and spent a few days exploring San Francisco. I must admit, visiting family was a little bit of an afterthought. The first and most important part of this trip was attending a 49ers game at Candlestick Stadium. I've been...

LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom vs. super adorable little kitten
For years, our children have been begging us for a cat, and for years we have come up with excuses and/or bribes to avoid getting one. My husband, Jayson, has been the biggest holdout -- Supermom's scapegoat. I did not have to be the bad guy because he was. And over the years, he...

LORI WEBER MENKE: Supermom vs. the wakeboard
Summer is a very important time in this Supermom's house. First, and most-importantly, there is no school. Second, we finally get to return to the lake. This is a place where most rules cease to exist. Bedtimes are nonexistent. Nutrition doesn't matter. We play with fire. And...

LORI WEBER MENKE: My Alabama experience comes full circle
The first concert I ever attended was in Minot. Not at Høstfest, but rather the North Dakota State Fair. And yes, it was Alabama, and the year was 1985. I remember it was loud, and it was awesome. Why my parents decided to let my brother, Lyle, and me tag along is beyond me,...
