On the Twenty-Third Day of Advent We Drove to Detroit

After spending the night in Cudahy it was time to head to our next destination, Detroit. 

For once Scott wanted to get going right away. It's usually me who is in a rush to leave. He didn't even want to wait for me to have breakfast so I grabbed a bagel and cream cheese. 

Of course we had to head through Chicago to get to Detroit. 

After ten bucks in tolls we made it to Indiana.

After a while there was less and less snow. So much for a white Christmas. 

There was a bit more snow in Michigan. A lot of trees were iced over from a recent ice storm, but it was all gone by the time we made it to Detroit.

We met up with Katie at her Grandma-In-Law's house where Meadow got to meet her cousin Simone.

It was exciting to meet our newest baby niece.

Dennis's grandma had us eat a bunch of her Lebanese leftovers. 

It was all really good.

The cousins had fun playing together. 

Meadow actually looks big when she's by Simone. 

They both loved these rings and playing with Uncle Dennis.

Meadow had to take a break from the fun for some boob milk.


How can you not love baby feet?


It was exciting to see my big sis. We hadn't seen Dennis and Katrina since our visit to the Bay Area before they moved to Michigan.

We would've played all night, but we had to get to our hotel.

Once Scott's parents arrived we met up with them at the hotel down the road.

A Big Old Family 4th and Our First Trip to the Fox Valley and Bay Beach in Forever

We began our 4th of July weekend a little early with a trip to Marshfield, WI. I had to shoot a cable company store and I didn't feel like going back and forth from Wisconsin to Minnesota and then back again. Meadow found something shiny at the bottom of the hotel pool and I went diving for it.  We got to the cottage for the long 4th weekend and I enjoyed some ramen. Because, you know. Chelsea and the kids were already up when we arrived. Theo would play in his turtle all weekend long. Hey Harvey. The cousins were reunited after almost a year. Theo didn't remember who they were. Theo may have not remembered who they were, but he still wanted to hang with the dudes. You can expect something yummy every night when the whole gang shows up. Chelsea served us her famous chicken and wild rice soup on our first night. Then we went on our fist pontoon ride of the week. Gail must bring wine on the boat ride. Oh and animal crackers of course. Not for Gail, but will end up all over the po

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
