Practice Time with Baby Madeline

Again I enjoy my breakfast alone while Scott sleeps. 

And once again I'm awoke to photograph my now very pregnant wife.

I can't believe the baby could be here in as little as 2 weeks. 

I'm pretty particular about getting the kitchen cleaned up before going to bed, but after dinner the night before we headed to Uptown and didn't get back until late. I got started on cleaning up. 

Scott called his dad for Father's Day.

Only to talk to my mother. Father Tuska was on an errand.

Despite more rainy days than sunny ones our garden seems to be doing okay. 

Cevonne and Jose are  moving out to Boonesville at the end of the month. They had been spending the weekend painting their new place. Apparently having Madeline  there was too distracting so they asked if we could hang out with her while they worked. 

I'm going to miss having them live in St. Paul. We really don't cross the river too much except to see them. 

They were both very excited to see my belly. 

Madeline was sad to see her rents leave for the day. I promised we'd be fun.

Madeline was supposed to take a nap, but she must have been too excited to see me to want to sleep. 

We decided to go for a walk. Before leaving Madeline jumped on her fuzzy butterfly rocker.

I thought she might fall asleep if we took her for a walk. Especially after being in Venezuela I thought she'd be bored. Nope, she spent the second half babbling the whole time. 



Clearly not tired at all.

I thought if I laid down she would too. Nope that didn't work either. 

Eventually I got her down for a nap. Then it was more play time when she got up. 

Cevonne said she would come home "early" so we didn't think about dinner. After Madeline went to bed for the night we were starving. Scott ordered us some Luce. 

I had to wear Madeline's bib on my dress so I wouldn't spill on my belly. 

Around ten Cevonne finally returned. I hadn't seen her since her graduation so we chatted a bit before heading home. 

While Brooke went straight to bed, I made the mixed berry ice cream I'd been prepping for two days. I thought If I let the berries sit for one more day they might start to taste like the metal bowl they were in.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
