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.

Aurora Peeping at the Cottage on Mother's Day Weekend

I had PTO to use up so we made a trip to the cottage for Mother's day weekend. It isn't too often we drive up on a Friday so fish fry was a must.  I would've stayed home and painted, but you guessed it, it was still raining. On the way we took a slight detour up to Lehman's Supper Club up in Rice Lake.  We've never ventured up here from our typical route, but it's kind of the start of Up North, which means lots of restaurants for the tourists. The kiddos got spaghetti. Of course we got the fish fry. I'd rank Lehman's as a mid to low tier supper club. Ambiance is meh. Fish was forgettable. Good salad. After reading reviews later I guess the main attraction is the entree's that include a relish tray and popovers.  But they do have a great bar. My dad has been busy working on Chelsea's bedroom upstairs. She upgraded to a queen bed and we needed to get the box spring up stairs.  It would not fit. Close, but we were really searching for a solutio

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

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
