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.

The Week That Changed Minneapolis

We were supposed to be at the cottage for Memorial Day weekend, but long story short, that did not happen.
Instead we were invited for an outdoor cookout. On our way to Nate's house we had to stop and get gas. I had to document this moment because the last time we got gas was on March 8th coming home from my birthday weekend in Duluth.
Thanks, Covid.
Nate and jess invited us over for a vegan grill out. We jumped at the offer.
We brought the beers and a few snacks. They had much of everything else.
It felt a little strange to be at someone else's house. I also commented that this was the farthest north I had been in months.
Nate also grilled us some sci-fi vegan burgers and also had eggplant on the grill.
 Theo stole my camera again.

Nah, this was on my phone.
He must've gotten yours next.
Theo basically just ate fruit.
This kid could live off fruit alone.
We drank a bunch of beers.
More fruit Theo? Yes, yes he will.
The next day we were going to try and attempt to fish at Lake Harri…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.
Scott added granola to his oatmeal. 
The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.
Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof. 
Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing.
During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him.
Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale.
We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
Brussel sprouts on the stalk. How cool!
Pumpkins for carvin…
