Antiques and Baby Baths

Meadow has been going to bed earlier since the time change. If I don't wake up before her I usually bring her into our room with us. Eventually she gets hungry and falls back asleep. 

Morning snuggles are the best.

The part she left out is that she leaves Meadow with me as a human alarm clock. I guess I can't complain. Look at that face!

After she fell asleep I had breakfast. Scott had lunch. 

Potato and cabbage soup with croutons. I ate too many croutons and felt naucious afterwards.

She has finally run out of disposables so we moved onto cloth diapers. We've had a few leaks, but  I think we've figured out how to stop them. 

I was planning on heading to Wayzata for another shoot, but the overcast weather turned it into a fun day with my two babes.

Now that she's wearing them I don't really notice the goofy prints. 

She would rather be in her diaper all day. 

We decided to put her in this little hooded outfit we got from Emma. It will sadly be the last time she will wear it. It's a bit small for chubby checkers.

We had no plans today and decided to go to Hunt and Gather since we hadn't been there in a long time. 

Meadow likes this place. 

These would've been great for our wedding.

I love that they have true antiques and goofy knickknacks.  Holy mini Bozo the Clown inflatable whatchamacallits!

Of course I wanted this Kmart-branded rangefinder, but I passed.

They had a few vintage books and toys. 

I think Meadow wanted this styrofoam doughboy for her room.

This was my favorite find. Brooke wasn't as into the Metrodome seat cushions.

I ended up getting Meadow a book on Paul Bunyan for $2. I didn't know he was born in Maine. 

I annoy Brooke about new camera equipment all the time. I don't think she believes in the adage that you have to spend money to make money. She should check out this guy's overindulgence.

Anyways I decided against any of their ancient lenses. I'll continue to shoot from 35-55mm (or in DX mode) on my quite good 17-55mm f/2.8 DX. It's not convenient, but it has good results.

Since we were heading back this way we stopped at Home Depot and Costco. We've recently become members at Costco as an early Christmas gift to each other. So far it's been helping us save money. 

Though most of the food we get from there is organic, I couldn't help but get some pork for sausages, carnitas and pulled pork.

I spent the next hour installing this light we got at Home Depot for above the kitchen sink. I had to cut the screws in order to make it work.

Then it was Meadow's favorite time of the day. Bath time!

I think she's too young for bath letters. We played with them nonetheless while she stuck 'em in her mouth.


After Meadow was asleep we watched an episode of Breaking Bad while I knitted her some mittens.

I want to see the mittens. I gotta check out this Hunt and Gather place sometime. I think you should have bought the dough boy. :)

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.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.
