Papas...Working

I got emailed early in the week from a video production firm out of Portland, Oregon. They needed a production assistant and fixer for five days. I thought why not?

We leave Meadow's door open that connects to our shared bathroom and she comes in as our human alarm clock.

It's rare that I'm up before everyone else.

Meadow has become quite the bookworm lately which is awesome. I hope she gains a love for libraries like I do.

I made Meadow and I Oatmeal and Banana Pancakes for breakfast. 

Meanwhile I took Blue Chalk Media's Jamie Francis around the Green Line LRT.

I basically had to get him good vantage points, keep him fed and stay out of the way.

I haven't been feeling well lately so I thought we could both use some fresh air. I was planning on going to the Quaking Bog, but changed my mind last minute and took Meadow to the Mary Hills Nature Area. 

Meadow has been so distracted on hikes lately that it was nice to go with just the two of us. I let her take all the time she needed.

Are you saying that I rush her? She picks up to many darn sticks.

No, but when are with other people they can be less patient than us.

When she was really pokey I would say, "Let's go find some mushrooms" and then she would get excited and go. She kept saying, "Mushrooms, where are you?"

Then she found a branch that looked like a fishing pole and did that for awhile. We will definitely have to take her fishing next summer.

We took the wooded path as opposed to the paved trail. This seemed like a good idea until we had to keep moving for mountain bikers.

Most of my day was spent dodging Vikings fans on the light rail.

I wanted to go this way, but it seems they are working on something.

We did eventually find some mushrooms.

Then Meadow took some photos.


"Mama sit too."


We let Meadow have one piece of candy a day from her Halloween candy.

We had lunch before Meadow napped.

These days naptimes mean painting time.

I also cleaned up the garden before it got dark. We still have brussel sprouts, a little bit of chard, collards and cabbage still growing.

We ended the day along the Mississippi. Finally, I was free.

I came home to what Brooke deemed "weird" soup.

It was and it gave me horrible heartburn.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part II

Mother's day means handmade cards from Meadow.
Also breakfast made by Meadow.
Then Meadow made another breakfast banana split for her and Theo.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
