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 Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

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

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
