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.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend
