On The Third and Fourth Day Of Advent We Got A Tree and Decorated It

This year I said we should actually cut down our own tree. It seems they are usually cheaper this way too. 

When we arrived and saw that they were $35 I recollected that we may have actually spent less the year before.

It actually seemed tougher to make a decision.

We basically walked around for a while until we could pick the right one.

Meadow enjoyed touching all the mini trees.

She didn't enjoy standing up in her snow pants.

Then we finally decided on one.

 I cut off some stragglers and brought it to the car, strapped it down and went back to Minneapolis.

On the weekends they have Santa and animals and crafts. If we do this again next year we will have to come on the weekend to make it more worth the drive. 

We each decorated a tree. Well, Brooke decorated Meadow's red wonder.

Next year she's on her own.

Another tree forest.

Meadow was so excited for our tree forest that she ran around with sunglasses, a diaper and socks.

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.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
