We Could Close The Curtains, Pretend Like There's No World Outside

One day after a huge snowstorm I went outside to drive off in my car, but things didn't go as I had planned. My car is not suitable for driving in winter and unfortunately got stuck on a pile of snow not allowing the front wheel to touch the ground. After a half hour of scraping any snow out that I could, my frustrated, impatient self quit and decided to try again later. Two hours later my car was gone. The damn city stole my car from me. I proceeded to the impound lot only to find that 1700 people had also wanted their cars. Impatient me again left to return again the next day. After school I walked through parts of Minneapolis I had never been to before in hopes of getting my car back. $180 later it was returned to me. The man who brought me to my car told me a story about how he told a girl to watch out for the angry elephants and giraffes on the way to her car. She (a Minnesotian of course) asked to be escorted to her car because she didn't want to go alone. I got a good laugh out of that.

Here are some things I've been working that past couple of months. Sorry for the delays.

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
