That's The Way We Get By

It seems like everytime I go somewhere I don't want to return back to Minneapolis, I always seem to be leaving something that I love. It was nice to get away from my usual repeative schedule that I have every week. I love that vacation feeling, even if it is only 2 days long. Chicago is the new Minneapolis. I remember how excited I was to go to the cities and I couldn't wait to move there. Now I can't wait to move to Chicago. I think I get bored with things too easily.



We made a long cold trip across the city of Chicago to get my wallet. I wouldn't have even known it was the super bowl if I hadn't gone down this weekend. The whole city was pumped for the Bears, people were literally running everywhere to see the kickoff. I played wii for the first time. It just made me miss playing golf, which made me miss summer. It didn't take many pictures this weekend because it was so gosh darn cold.



Things have been good otherwise. I really like school. I know I talk about it a lot, but for once I'm actually learning things that apply to my life. I don't remember anything I learned in English or math. I eat healthier and read nutrition labels. C'mon how many classes have you taken where your assignment was to make these.



I finally bought my ticket to London, it's not all talk anymore I'm actually going for real. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

My dad bought me darkroom equipment. I can't wait to start developing my own pictures. I've been wanting to do so for so long.

A Big Old Family 4th and Our First Trip to the Fox Valley and Bay Beach in Forever

We began our 4th of July weekend a little early with a trip to Marshfield, WI. I had to shoot a cable company store and I didn't feel like going back and forth from Wisconsin to Minnesota and then back again. Meadow found something shiny at the bottom of the hotel pool and I went diving for it.  We got to the cottage for the long 4th weekend and I enjoyed some ramen. Because, you know. Chelsea and the kids were already up when we arrived. Theo would play in his turtle all weekend long. Hey Harvey. The cousins were reunited after almost a year. Theo didn't remember who they were. Theo may have not remembered who they were, but he still wanted to hang with the dudes. You can expect something yummy every night when the whole gang shows up. Chelsea served us her famous chicken and wild rice soup on our first night. Then we went on our fist pontoon ride of the week. Gail must bring wine on the boat ride. Oh and animal crackers of course. Not for Gail, but will end up all over the po

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin
