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.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

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.

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.
