Falling for Meadow at 3 months

It's getting cooler outside which means Scott brings out the flannel.

Flannel shirt. Check. Flannel-lined pants. Check. Flannel underwear. Not so much.

I had a quick breakfast then made breakfast again for Scott and I. He always complains I don't make breakfast for him. I'm always so hungry when I get up I have to eat right away.

Oh, man. Everyday I love this woman more. And look at the beautiful daughter we made!

Meadow loves putting everything you give her in her mouth lately. 

As you can see we are slowly working on Meadow's room.

I talked to my sister. I was hoping to Skype with her and our newest baby niece, Simone. Unfortunately they don't have internet for the time being.

I've been trying to get her to sleep on her own lately. She fell asleep while I was nursing her then woke up as soon as I moved. 

We grew two pie pumpkins this year. Our biggest ones yet. 

I prepped them for roasting. I then froze the puree for Thanksgiving pies.

I put on some Bob Marley lullabies and she eventually fell asleep.

Peanut stood on guard and made sure she didn't go anywhere.

This time I saved the seeds for roasting too. 

She's so serious when eating peoples fingers. 

Its a damn cute face she makes.

A week late but we took some photos of Meadow. 


Peanut wanted to be a part of it too. 

BLT for lunch. Soon we won't have the luxury of CSA shares and garden harvests.

We listened to more lullabies during lunch. 

Meadows arms are too short for her baby gym and she has to be in a good mood to play. Then she gets frustrated that she can't put the toys in her mouth. 

Meadow seems to want to eat our food. Sorry bear, but you'll have to wait a few more months for solids.

Scott needs new shoes so we headed to Uptown.

No shoes but we both got some new jeans and Scott got a new sweater.

More of smoking jacket to be honest. 

A new Whole Foods opened up downtown. I stopped by a few days ago to pick up some things. Scott wanted to check it out too. 

It's a nice addition and the second closest full service grocery store to us. It's nearer than the co-ops, but we'll only get a few staples that are cheaper form Whole Foods. I'm a big fan of their house brand organic noodles. They're less than two bucks.

When we got home I prepped a quick pasta dish with homemade pork sausage and mustard greens.

I wasn't ready to go to sleep so I made chocolate chip cookies.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

A Northwoods Mother's Day

My mom had texted me last week asking if we wanted to go to the cottage for Mother's Day. Scott didn't have any work on Monday so we headed there for the weekend. I was able to get off work a little early so we didn't have to get there so late.  Driving through Lindstrom Scott wanted to get donuts at the bakery. We didn't have any cash so we settled on ice cream at the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shop  in Center City. About 20 minutes before we got to the cottage Meadow threw up all her milk. Soaking herself and her carseat. She never threw up like this before. It was kind of scary. She kept asking for milk. I guess I should've known better.

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
