A Little Duluth and A Little of Nothing Much

I had a photo shoot at the College of St. Scholastica so we got to stay the night at the Radisson in downtown Duluth. Of course we went swimming.

This was the best pool yet. The temperature in the room matched the water temp. 

Meadow has been warming up to swimming a little each time she goes. This time she actually kicked and moved her arms. 

We are getting used to staying at hotels. 

We stayed one extra day in Duluth at Blake's house. 

I don't know why, but I love this picture of my honey bunnies.

We were back at home by the weekend. 

I whipped up my favorite breakfast. A few weeks ago I ran into Emma at the farmers market. We decided to get a giant basket of bell peppers and split it. I cut up, sliced and froze all the peppers into six containers to use all winter.  I had to chisel some off for our meal.

This has become our new go to breakfast. I miss you crepes, but hash is so good.

Meadow loves making this face lately.

She can be cute too.

Scott had to meet up with some potential clients. The weather was pretty nice so Meadow and I hopped along with Scott and went for a walk around Lake of the Isles during his meeting. Meadow stayed on the path for awhile then ventured on the grass to explore. 

After a succesful sales pitch for a wedding gig I met up with my family.

I notice we seem to be the only people who let their young toddler walk on their own. I see lots of kids bigger than her in strollers all the time. 

We bascially let Meadow walk wherever she likes as long it's not a street or in front of someone. Strollers are for babies, not toddlers.


Back at home we ate leftovers for lunch before sending Meadow off for her nap. Actually I think she fell asleep on the ride home and Scott carried her up to bed.

There wasn't a whole lot to do today. As much as I love the break we get when she naps it would be nice to have a whole day to do whatever we wanted. 

In all honesty I miss Meadow when she takes her naps. Perhaps in another year I won't feel that way.

I made a variation on sweet potato and tofu curry with cabbage instead of bok choy. The purple sweet potatoes turned the whole meal a violet hue.

I had Meadow try on her costume. She did not like the hood and couldn't figure out why she couldn't take it off. 

An apple made everything better. Life with kids...

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
