Morning Sushi and a Cold Stroll Down St. Anthony Main

After our dessert sushi last week I thought it would be fun to have breakfast sushi.

The rice krispies, bananas and peanut butter made a repeat appearance.

I had Scott make a couple crepes to use as the nori. 


I made a few different varieties. The ones that had peanut butter fillings rolled up a lot better. Wish we had gotten Nutella.

Meadow and I had a chopstick fight after we were finished.

We debated on going ice skating since this weekend was the last that rinks were open. Instead we decided to take a walk around St Anthony Main.

We might be moving to this area this summer.

We wanted to check out the parking situation. I think it will work for us.

Despite it being sunny and in the 30's the wind made it feel really chilly.

Meadow decided to hitchhike along Main Street.


One of the reasons we're thinking of moving is that we miss living in a walkable neighborhood. I love biking, but it would be great to go outside and be within a stone's throw of parks, restaurants and everything that comes with that.


Meadow wanted to sit here all day.

Once we got home Meadow was really interested in my braid.

Naptime means more working on the house.

I'm reglazing and painting all of the basement windows. I've been at it for the last week. This was my last window that needed glazing.

Meadow has gotten so quick with doing puzzles lately. She's going to need some more challenging ones soon.

We had refried bean tostadas with pickled red onions, cabbage and avacados.

After all the house work and a homemade dinner we were pooped.



But I had the 2 hour season finale of Downton Abbey to watch. Since it was my night to put Meadow to bed she got to stay up and watch with me.

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

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
