Farmers Market and our Friend's 40th

I made kale egg cups for breakfast.

Hey, we're actually home on a weekend. I had a wedding shoot on Saturday. We couldn't leave town this time.

Meanwhile Meadow watched Jenny Lewis videos.

She requested eggs without kale.

This'll do.

I had made chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos on Friday. Brooke requested this. She only requests sweets once a year. So, I had to oblige.

These were a Pinterest fail, but still tasted good. Although a bit sweet.

Then we biked the new portion of the 26th Avenue Greenway to the farmers market.

Looking good. Only one more year until it's complete.

We happened to arrive with the rest of the bikers.

We let Meadow pick whatever she wanted. She chose purple cauliflower, lettuce and butternut squash.


Every time we go here there is this older Hmong woman selling toys. Meadow stops to look at them every time. This time we let her pick out a toy, she chose a mermaid. She couldn't stop looking at it and ran into a pole.

It was comical and sad at the same time.

And then it was time to go back home for a while.

Back at home we shredded cabbage for sauerkraut.

We bummed around for awhile until we met up with Shannyn and Brent (and their friends) at Betty Danger's for her birthday. She let us know she wasn't bringing her kids and we could if we wanted to.
We decided to try to find a sitter for Meadow. When that fell through she came anyway. I figured someone else would bring their kids.


Turns out we were the only ones with a kid. Ah well.

The women got to ride the ferris wheel.


Hey guys.

I've already rode it for hours (see the Street View shot at the link above).

I think we'll bring Brooke's parents here next time they're in town. We'll just have to find a sitter.

Meadow loved this place.

Supposedly the owner, who also owns Donnie Dirk's and Psycho Suzi's, hates kids. She shows that in an ode manner.

It was a perfect evening for being outside.

Happy Birthday, Shannyn! Hope you didn't mind Meadow crashing the party too much.

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
