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.

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Labor Day is Oh So Great at the Cottage. Even This Year.

We planned on skipping the cottage for Labor Day thinking a lot of people would be up. Turns out that wasn't the case. We decided to spend our first day going on a bike ride.

We each towed a kiddo behind us. 
Pulling a bike trailer on a single speed gets to you after a while. Scott wanted to keep going down Sheltered Valley Road. We joked we should add Theo's trailer to Meadow's tag-along.
It actually worked and wasn't half bad.
