The Second Annual Pumpkin Carving Night

On the Wednesday night a week before Halloween we did our annual pumpkin carving with Cevonne and Jose. 

Cevonne was excited to make margaritas before she realized they didn't have any ice. 

Then she took my camera and started shooting up the place.

I think she was still disappointed we had no ice on the premises.

Somehow we decided on pizza for dinner. JT couldn't decide where to order it from.


Madeline was sad she didn't get a pumpkin. 

We ordered Toppers for dinner. Scott said, "I don't think I've ever eaten this sober."

I was pretty full.

She was also showing off Cevonne's Trinidad and Tobago t-shirt.

Then we all set to work on our gut scooping while Madeline looked at us like we were weirdos. 

Both Scott and I had come up with better faces than last year.

I was in it, to win it or at least make decent showing.

Scott actually spent more then 5 minutes on his. 


JT and I just kept on carving.


I think I was actually the last one to finish.

Jose is better skilled than us with the shaving part.

That's his on the left, then Brooke, me and Cevonne last.

They looked great all lit up.

We made the photo cuter by putting Madeline in front of them. 

And then we tried to do a family photo that didn't work out so well. 

The lens hood blocked part of the flash.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

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

With Fall Comes Apples

  Brooke decided to make breakfast for herself. I wanted some OJ, so I poured her a glass too. Bland oatmeal is just what I needed. Scott said he was going to call his mom. My aunt got back to me about attending our wedding. She was going to have foot surgery and couldn't travel. Sometimes I wish all my family lived in one area like Brooke's. I had to tell my mom. The night before I had my bridal shower/bachelorette at my house with my Twin Cities ladies. We had dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's later that night.  I was able to finish cleaning up before Scott got off the phone. My mom and I tend to talk a lot. I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
