Davin and Dora are Having a Girl!


We were invited to a co-ed baby shower for an old-coworker-now-friend of Scott.

Davin and I worked for a few years at Geek Squad. Now we love to hang with him and his wife, Dora, and usually our other Geek Squad compadre Danny.

When we first arrived we played a break the ice game where we had to guess what name was pinned to our backs.

I think I was Barrack Obama. People were saying things like the worst and the best president. I couldn't figure it out, but now it makes so much sense.

Meadow was a hit right away.

We took a tour of the home with the owner. It's right on North Commons and the had the most amazing deco bathroom. The whole thing was tiled in black marble. There are some really awesome homes on our side of Minneapolis.

We ate lots of good food.

I loved the chicken tenders.

People kept offering to take Meadow off our hands. How could we say no?

She loves all the attention anyway.

I could go for one of these right now.

These were damn good.

I made Davin take a big bite for the camera. He's a good sport.

Their shower was also a gender reveal. I had guessed a girl before the party. Looks like Meadow will have another friend.

It's great that so many of our friends and family have had babies this year. I can't wait to meet Davin and Dora's little one.

Dora and her sister prepped diapers for guess the chocolate poo. Between taking pictures, I ate more chicken strips. This makes me want to make our take on hot and crunchy chicken cones (use rice krispies instead of corn flakes and add a tablespoon of paprika).

I had a lot of fun meeting new people. I hope they didn't get annoyed by all my picture taking. It's kind of my thing.


Meadow found a new best friend for the afternoon.


I skipped on guess the poo, but Brooke did pretty well.



I got all but one right.


Presents were opened after the chocolate-diaper game.



Then we played baby bingo based on what presents she opened. I won this round.

We all tried to cheat our way to bingo by guessing stuff they already got. Brooke had an unfair advantage of being a new mom. She remembers these things better than me.

The Women Take the Kids Camping to William O'Brien State Park

Scott had to work this weekend, which kept us home for once. Seeing as this is my first summer in 8 years that I don't have to work weekends I couldn't just stay home. She just can't. Sorry Minneapolis friends.

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.

Duluth For The Day

 After work I decided to drive up to Duluth to visit my little brother Blake. Scott would have come with me if he didn't have to work. Like most streets in Duluth he lives on a steep hill. I couldn't remember how to park on a hill so I copied the car in front of me.   He gave me a tour of his house and when we were in his backyard I heard rushing water. There was a trail and some woods that we followed down a hill to Chester Creek. I had no idea he lived so close to a park.   Or a waterfall.     We walked a ways to find an old ski jump. Blake said he climbed it when he first moved here and a month later the city took the stairs down.   The ski lift is still in use for sledding.  Walking back to his house we passed another ski jump. Back when this was first built it was the tallest in the world. During World War II 50 feet was taken off the top to give to the war effort.  The reason I came to visit Blake was mainly
