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.

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding. I had to keep one tradition. I woke up early to meet Brooke's dad at the Theodore Wirth Picnic Pavilion, only to find out that he was meeting me a couple hours later. I ended up getting most of the decorations over to the venue with my dad, sister and Dennis.  Scott had texted me in the morning, "I'm supposed to merry your dad right now right?". I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Mankato's Minneopa Waterfalls and Bison in Spring

  Another weekend, another hiking trip. This time Minneopa State Park. We started with the Hiking Club Trail . The Hiking Club is a great way to get the kids excited about our hikes. Rather than just going out for a hike they're searching for the secret password along the trail.   Where there's rocks Meadow will climb. 

An End of Spring Break Visit to the Three Lakes Cottage

Meadow's on spring break so a trip to the cottage it is. The weekend called for rain, rain, rain but we don't care.   We all brought along our rain suits just in case it never let up. Even with just a drizzle Theo put on his suit right away. I think this is the earliest I've seen the ice off the lake. Should have brought our swimsuits. Brooke used to always be the first one swimming as a kid. Maybe Meadow, Brooke and Theo can keep that tradition alive. Me? Probably not. Theo must think his rain suit is completely waterproof. He went well past his boots.
