A Neighborhood Brunch and Ice Skating with the Baumanns

I believe Meadow was trying to dress herself this morning.

With our rehabbed windows we are unable to hang up our old shades. I woke up bright and early with the sun. 

I kind of like it. Keeps us from oversleeping when Meadow doesn't wake up at a reasonable time.

We didn't have any food for breakfast so we walked down to Lowry Cafe.

I think I had gotten so used to walking around south Minneapolis, the week our windows were worked on, that this just seemed natural. 

"Carry you, carry you!"

Along the way we stumbled upon a cat gang. Is that normal feline behavior?

Meadow and I were excited to be back at the Lowry Cafe. It had been ages.

Brooke got their still-killer corned beef hash, I got a spin on poutine and Meadow had a waffle. I tried to sneak a bite of Meadows waffle.

She cried a long time after Scott snuck a bite. I had to bring her over by me and then she ate her whole waffle by herself.

Then we met up with Cayla and Amanda for our annual ice skating get together. They didn't have any skates that fit Amanda so she volunteered to hold Meadow's hand.

Meadow really impressed them with her skills.

It was much milder than last years so she didn't mind staying out.

At first she didn't want to use the skating trainer, but eventually she warmed up to it.

The ice was a little soft due to the warm weather.

Amanda and Meadow have wicked moves.

Meadow didn't want to leave Cayla and Amanda.

I think we need to see these two more often.

When we got home I made a grocery list.

I make a list of items we already have and Scott takes full charge of the meal planning. Thanks Scott!

Marriage = team work.

I asked Meadow if she wanted to go grocery shopping. She replied, "Nope."

She insisted on bringing her basket and we let her pick out fruit to put in it. I helped make her normal antsy shopping experience go a little better.

After everyone went to bed I said goodnight to the skyline that I can only see in winter.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
