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.

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
