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 get smaller jars and strawberries, but Meadow was ready for a nap. While she napped I did odd jobs around the house like make laundry soap.

Once Meadow was up we had lunch. Watermelon and spaghetti and meatballs.

Don't worry, no watermelon was in the spaghetti and meatballs.

Meadow is 90% walking now. I love watching her wobble around singing to herself.

Afterwards we ran out to get jars and strawberries and came back empty handed. What a waste of time.

The Twins failed miserably against the Angels, but it was nice to go to to a game with these two.

Near the end of the game we walked across the upper deck to the check out the skyline. Even if the Twins suck you always get a nice view of the city. Can't wait until the Target Center gets renovated. That is one ugly arena.

Brian hadn't hung with us in a long while and I suggested Frisbee golf. We settled on the course in Basset Creek Park in Crystal. I'd always thought that this was in Golden Valley. It's only near GV.

Meadow was getting whiplash being on my back so we let her out to roam.

We each took turns carrying her around. 

I still am really bad at frisbee golf, but it's fun to walk around a park for no good reason.


I hope Meadow is better at this than I am.

This course should be more clearly marked. At one point Brooke went backwards on the course thinking that was the next one. We'd already finished that hole(?).

I didn't feel like making dinner and Haag wanted that "one burrito place over by you." I also thought that Burrito Cubano was a good plan.

Brian had plans to go to a movie and Meadow went straight to bed after dinner. Brooke and I continued our  Curb Your Enthusiasm marathon.

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
