Junethan's 2nd Big Day on NMBAC's 1st Anniversary

I was feeling lazy this morning and asked Scott to make breakfast while I stayed in bed a little bit.

I used to think waffles were the best of all pancake variants, but these just don't hit the spot like they used to since big pancakes and kaiserschmarrn.

Hi Meadow.

It finally seems that we're getting close to actual winter weather. I even got to wear my long johns today.

We don't really need much produce, but seeing as this is the last weekend for the farmers market, we got what we could. One of the farmers gave Meadow a tiny pumpkin.

Not much left other than root veggies this time of the year.

We're bringing brussels sprouts to Thanksgiving. We'd bought some from Costco, but thought we might need some more.

Meadow wanted to carry it, but kept saying it was too heavy so I helped her out.

It's been a year since the North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy Council started. It's been great meeting like-minded bike nuts and making new friends at the same time. Alexis has done a kick-ass job getting us all together.

We met up at Burrito Cubano for the one year anniversary.

While we discussed 26th Avenue and Open Streets Meadow was ready to go June's birthday party.

As soon as we arrived Meadow went straight to the toys.

All the other kids gathered around baby Lydia to check ups on her.

I guess this has something to do with June's birthday theme. I just like bananas.

The kids got to paint their own train bank. We don't do many craft things at home so I love to watch Meadow's creative side.

Hey watch out Roman! I'm drinking hot chocolate.

You knew Meadow wasn't far behind.

We got June a new bike helmet. Scott really wanted to get him a storm trooper one instead.

I think I wanted the C-3PO one.

What kid doesn't like cars?

All the kids were loving June's new toy cars.

Whenever we go over to someones house we like to extend our welcome and be the last ones to leave. 

We ended up picking up two take and bake pizzas from Aldi. It did the job.

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

A Northwoods Mother's Day

My mom had texted me last week asking if we wanted to go to the cottage for Mother's Day. Scott didn't have any work on Monday so we headed there for the weekend. I was able to get off work a little early so we didn't have to get there so late.  Driving through Lindstrom Scott wanted to get donuts at the bakery. We didn't have any cash so we settled on ice cream at the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shop  in Center City. About 20 minutes before we got to the cottage Meadow threw up all her milk. Soaking herself and her carseat. She never threw up like this before. It was kind of scary. She kept asking for milk. I guess I should've known better.

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
