November Farmers Market and Pizza with Friends

Today was our last day to go to the Farmers Market in 2016. 
And it was still nice enough to bike there.


I'm always amazed at how much food you can still get mid-November.
Few people go at this time in the year.

We stocked up so we had enough produce to last us until Thanksgiving.


And then some.

Meadow insisted on getting the strawberries from the reseller. Some were squished by the time we got home. Meadow ate them all and made a rainbow.

Of course now I had to make a grocery list.

We were having friends over for dinner and really needed to go grocery shopping. First stop Costco.

Everyone else has a cart full of crap. We stick with the healthy stuff.

After we got home Scott prepped all the toppings for homemade pizzas.

And then we baked them up with Brent and Shannyn.

Meanwhile Meadow and Eleanor had the time of their lives.

It's been awhile since we have had homemade pizza. I think pizza is the only thing I could eat every week.

The highlight was apple, turnip and buffalo mozzarella pizzas with a bit of spinach with a alfredo sauce. 

And hanging with friends.

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.
