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...

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

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

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend
