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.

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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
