Build a Bear and Wildcard Sunday

Morning breakfast with my new tea mug.

Your coworkers are so nice.

Meadow didn't want what we were having for breakfast. Only plain yogurt and granola for this girl.

She also got that little red enamel cup over New Years Eve, along with the rest of her cousins. It's her favorite cup at the moment and I don't blame her.

I made zucchini and bacon nests with eggs.

Meadow missed out. This was really good.

Cool mug, Brooke.

I know.

Meadow received a gift card to Build A Bear from an awesome co-worker of mine. We thought today seemed like a good day to go use it at the Mall of America. She remembered that the last time we were here was for Alexander's birthday party at the Sea Life Aquarium.

She made a beeline straight to the fish by their information desk.

Then Meadow took her good old time choosing a Build a Bear.

She couldn't decide.

Meadow finally decided on a pink bear and fairy outfit of course.

She was too shy to take a picture. Even with me.

Coco Fairy wasn't so shy.

I really didn't want to cook dinner since the Packers playoff game was on.

We also didn't have anything for lunch.

Meadow and Scott watched the Packers game.

And they won!

This is usually my time to do some sewing or craft. I need to have a new project. I worked on my chore list instead.

We ended the night by taking down the ornaments. It's always sad when its time to put away the trees.

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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.
