A No Nap Sunday


Meadow bug woke up this Sunday while Brooke made us breakfast. Brooke's been making us breakfast more and more on Sundays. I guess I needed a break.

I thought I would make our version of potatoes O'Brein with brussel sprouts.

This was probably the highlight of the day.

Avocado toast has been our new breakfast favorite.

She still prefers feeding herself.

Meadow's new favorite game is climbing in and out of her Bumbo seat.

We've had quite a bit of rain this spring. A night earlier nature washed out our gutters.

We sat around most of morning not wanting to do anything. It was rainy outside, so not much we could do outside. I thought we could really use a rain barrel with all the rain. We looked up how to make your own on Pinterest and then headed to Menards.

We ditched the idea of making a rain barrel since we didn't like any of the garbage cans Menards had. I also needed to pick out some paint for a birthday present I'm working on for Meadow.

While Brooke picked out colors, we got some more grass seed, landscape rocks and a few other odds and ends.

Moroccan-spcied Pastitsio is one of my favorite meals, but it just isn't the same during late Spring.

Back at home we were feeling lazy again. I'm working on a birthday crown for Meadow and wanted to finish it while she was awake to make sure it fit.

We tried to put Meadow down for a nap, but she wasn't having it.


Brooke's obsessed with smoothies lately.

Our garden turned into a patch of weeds since we planted two weeks back.

Since the rain stopped we figured we should probably work on the yard. I wasn't really in the mood for it. During the week I don't mind. I think when Scott helps me it feels more like a chore.

She's always finding something to eat.

Always have to watch her like a hawk. You never know what she might have discovered.

For not napping at all she seemed to be in a pretty good mood.

We were both lazy still. So we ordered Pizza Hut from the Xbox app. I know. I'm embarrassed.

It was too late to make dinner and we don't really care for our local pizza place.

The crust and sauce were as good as I remember, but what's up with their cheese?

I can't remember the last time I had Pizza Hut.

We watched Game of Thrones and Girls.

We've been doing that a lot lately.

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
