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.

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.
