Frisbee Forever

Blake and his Occupier-mate Justin came to visit to go to Mayday. Unfortunately the rain we had this weekend caused flooding which postponed the festival to next week. 

Scott made us pancakes for breakfast. 

Scott convinced Blake to put barley malt syrup on his pancakes. Blake did not like it. 

Scott tried it too. 

I also found it to be not so good on pancakes.

After we ate we drank tea and had good conversation.

 
The actual reason we have barley malt syrup is for kaiser rolls. They proofed overnight in the fridge so they lost their shape.


After breakfast Brooke quickly did the dishes.


 Blake, Justin and Brooke decided they wanted to go Frisbee golfing. I begrudgingly joined them and then had fun.


 On the way we got lost and couldn't find the bridge over the highway.


Scott had never played frisbee golf before. I played a lot in high school, up until I moved here.

Everybody but me were old pros.



For some reason Justin leaned this large branch on the tree.



We were told the tee for the 9th hole was behind the rock at the end of the trail on your left.

And it was there.
It was also behind two giant piles of sand.



Right around the final hole Blake found some burdock and later a bunch of garlic mustard. 

Then we decided to bike to Bad Waitress for lunch.

Foraging will make you hungry.

 On our way back through Golden Valley Blake and Justin decided to brave the flooded trail. We took a different approach.


We took a quick break at Cedar Lake.


Justin and Brooke were pooped by the time we go to the Waitress.

Scott made us take the scenic route.  


In the six years that Brooke has lived in Minneapolis we've ate at Bad Waitress more than any other restaurant. Somehow we never took Blake there. He ordered the famed Robert Palmer.


We got a chocolate malt.

They messed up my order and made a quesadilla instead of a burrito. The waitress was nice enough to give us the 'dilla.

Though this is Brooke's photo, this is probably what I stared at while waiting for my food.

Yay, grilled cheeese!

It's the only place I still order grilled cheese from. C'mon it has 3 layers of bread!


Brooke thought we should walk to downtown.

I was too full to start biking right away. 

 I dropped my bike while taking this one.

It was probably karma for me bad mouthing the occupiers at Peavey Plaza.

Justin and Brooke were wusses and stopped instead of biking through a yellow light.

Hey it was red when Blake crossed. There are a lot of bad drivers out there. I didn't feel like getting run over by someone late for the Twins game.
When we got home we did a lot of this. 

We ended the night watching the movie Super. We had seen the previews and thought this movie would be really funny. It had it's fair share of laughs, but it was also very disturbing. I had to cover my eyes half the time. I do NOT recommend it. 

What a horrible movie. What a fun day!

The facial expressions and the stances in this blog post were hilarious. I especially like the one of Scott on his tip-toes about to throw the Frisbee.

I can’t believe how much you guys bike. It reminds me of the time that Jeff and I came and you walked us to the Guthrie building and you said, “Oh it’s not far” and we were SO wiped by the end.

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
