Apple Picking and Fall Bike Rides

Another year, another round of apple picking. Usually we try to stay away from the places that have hay rides and photo ops, but now that Meadow is older I thought she might enjoy it. I tried to find a place with animals and corn pit, but didn't have much luck. I settled on Deardorrf Orchards and Vineyards.

A Kingfield Farmers Market Kind of Day

Sometimes Meadow is cranky when I make breakfast. I don't blame her. I would be sad if the counters were 2 feet above my head and I couldn't see what was going on. I brought over a step stool for her to stand on so she could watch.

A Battle Creek Hike

Since my horrible cartwheel attempt a few weeks ago I realized I'm not as flexible as I used to be so I've started doing stretches every morning to help with that. If Meadow is around she usually copies me or climbs on me.

I thought you just wanted to stretch more?
 I was out of ideas for breakfast so I made Scott take over.

Maple Syrup caramelized apples with crepes it was.
 We couldn't feed them to Meadow fast enough.

She was trying to skip the apples, but eventually caved in. She's so picky sometimes.
 I did finally end up canning a few days ago. Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. Out of the three jars 2 actually sealed. 
Meadow runs to our mudroom whenever she can and stands on our cooler. She loves looking outside at the yard.
I sometimes walk in on her and Peanut fighting over who gets to stand on it. 
 While driving back from our Illinois trip I spotted a park off Hwy 61 in St. Paul. Since it was actually going to be nice today I suggested we check it out.

I had actually sugg…

A Twins Game for Dad. At Home For Mom. Frisbee Golf for All.

I have been trying to teach Meadow to use her table more to do puzzles.

I alwalys catch her either standing on the chair or climbing onto the table. Over time she will learn.
We had homemade yogurt, homemade granola, bananas and avocado toast for breakfast.

What a bunch of hippies.
Meadow has never really been a big fan of yogurt. She cried and spit out her food when we tried feeding it to her. Thinking she wouldn't eat hers I started eating it, that's when she decided it must be good and gobbled it up.
Peanut joined us on the table and ate the remainder of our yogurt. We probably shouldn't allow that.
With Scott being gone for part of the day I thought I would get everything I needed to can jam. My mom had given me her old canner pot a few years ago. I also brought down a bunch of jars from our wedding.
Tyler invited me to join him at a Twins game with little Olive. The wife and babe would've come along, but we figured Meadow wasn't going to sit still.
I had plans to…
