A Fall Garden Sunday (Damn you, Costco!)

Scott shot a wedding and was told I could come after he was done shooting. I put Meadow to bed and Emma came over so I could meet Scott. Let's just say I was pretty tired the next day.

After the wedding we sort of celebrated our fifth anniversary by going over to our favorite bar, the Aster Cafe. Brooke drank too much.

I made her a hangover cure breakfast: hash browns, eggs and bacon. Only I made twice as much hash browns than we needed.

Earlier this week we went to Costco to get our tires rotated. We mentioned our air pressure signal kept going off. It turns out we had a nail in our side wall.

I kind of figured there was a leak of some sort.

They put our spare on and said they would call us when a new tire came in. That was Wednesday and today is Sunday. Our plans to go apple picking were shot down. I guess we did have some yard work to do.

Digging up tulips turned into digging up a new side garden.

Brooke loves adding gardens. I only help because I love her.

Meadow had too much fun running in the dirt singing, "Squishy, squishy, squishy."

She also helped me gather some garden worms and a few nightcrawlers. Now we need to go fishing.

She then got a much deserved bath. 

I made beef lo mein for dinner. Brooke and Meadow loved it. I did a pretty good job at being a dad and husband today.

Since we had dinner early, I was pretty tired to do anything else we decided to watch a movie and have popcorn.

We watched The Little Prince.

We only got started, but it was so good that I had to put my phone down.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
