Hanging with Caribbeans in the Dead of Winter

Good morning sunshine.

Someone learned how to crawl last week.

Meadow is the queen of stuffed animals.

We decided to take out most of these since she wants to sleep or chew everyone.

I asked Scott to make breakfast again. 

It's what I do.

Meadow really only likes to be in the jumper for 5 minutes. I wish she would stay in it longer. 

Brooke and the babe were keeping an eagle eye on my cooking.

We hadn't had aebelskievers in a long time. Scott complained that they were just complicated pancakes and complained the whole time while he made them.

Because they all burnt. I soon realized I forgot the cooking spray.

These are pretty delicious. They're kind of like little filled-pancake donuts.

During breakfast Cevonne texted asking if we wanted to come over.

Meadow waking up at the same time every night has made me a zombie.

Lately Meadow has discovered shadows. She is easily entertained when I make shadow puppets. Today she realized she can make them too. 

She kept trying to catch them. 

That's a creepy shadow little bear. She's going to frighten herself.

Since starting solids her poops have been thicker and much more explosive. We usually have to change her clothes 3 times a day. This time she needed a bath. 

After Meadow took a nap we headed through the crazy blowing snow to Cevonne and Jose's. 

Madeline was very interested in Meadow. 

While the guys made food in the kitchen us girls Skyped with Amanda. We got to finally "meet" Alayna.

We brought over chips and avocados and made a massive amount of gaucamole. 

Beer and guac. Not a bad dinner.

We continued to Skype with Amanda. Her sound wasn't working so she had to type out her responses. 


While Scott was making gaucamole, Jose made pineapple upside down cake. I have never actually made pineapple upside down cake. Jose perfected it quite well. 

I could really go for this as I type.

The wind was pretty bad and it was getting really cold. We debated on sleeping over.

This winter is the worst ever.

We all watched Super Why before Madeline went to bed. 

JT conked out while Madeline was enthralled.

Meadow fell asleep too. After awhile we decided to brave the weather and head home.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

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

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
