A Day In The Life

Scott had to work today so it was just Meadow and I for breakfast. We have been putting Meadow to bed later which makes us stay up later and then everybody sleeps in in the morning. We ate breakfast fast to make it to the farmers market.

I accidentally brought a camera without a memory card. Oops. After  Meadow and I biked to the farmers market we went up to North Mississippi Regional Park. I wanted to scope out the area for Meadow's birthday party coming up. I let Meadow play on the playground before we headed home.

It's nice to see more things available at the market. 

That whole work thing didn't work out. It was too dang cloudy for my blue sky loving client. 

I picked up a fishing pole to go with my Wisconsin fishing license. Maybe I'll catch a fish before the end of the summer.

While Meadow napped I got to working on her birthday invites. Scott thought I was making tombstones.

That would've been quite morbid. I think these are popsicles.

Then we fixed our lights over our backyard. This looks so much better than having them draped in the branches. 

It could use a few more strands of lights.

We have been getting a lot more strawberries this year.

They have gotten a bit tart as the seasons progressed.

She's always running away from us.

I caught up to her as she made it to the front stairs.

Since I was at home and not at my shoot I made ropa vieja (with venison) with black beans and plantains maduros.

We thought Meadow would have loved this meal, but she only ate the rice and a few beans.

Actually all of the beans. I think she gets disappointed when she finds out the plantains aren't bananas.

We ended the night playing some croquet with the neighbor kids. One of them was moving away so I caved in for a few rounds.

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
