Meadow Goes Sledding

It was finally warm enough today to take Meadow out in her new sled. 

After Scott parked in the library in Brooklyn Center and claimed there was a park behind it, we strapped on our snowshoes and headed towards said park.

She really didn't believe me. I worked a block away for almost two years. 


Meadow kept hanging her arm off the side causing her mitten to fall off once in a while. 

These mittens are really poorly designed.

I recently realized that I've been wearing this jacket since I was 19. Next winter will be its tenth anniversary, though the coat is from the 70s.

We took turns pulling Meadow though the field.


We tried cutting through this field, but the cat tails would whip her in the face. 

So around we went. 

This is a lot harder than you'd imagine.

There are a few parks in Brooklyn Center that are hidden gems. Garden City Park has some nice vistas.

Then we ran into a trail that wasn't totally plowed making a much smoother ride for Meadow. 


Her hat was also falling off frequently. 



We basically made a big loop back to where we started.

She was starting to fall asleep and the path became to clear so I carried her back to the car. Wasn't that fun Meadow?

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
