The Fialas Move In


My sister Chelsea texted me last week saying she was going to be in town for work and asked if she could stay the weekend. 

And she did.

Meadow wanted to have a sleepover with Chelsea and stayed with her in the guest room while she was here.

I made big pancakes for everyone for breakfast.

After breakfast Chelsea headed home. She wanted to beat the snowstorm coming and see her boys.

After she left Meadow helped me make granola.

Whenever she helps Brooke she seems way more helpful.

I found stickers hiding in one of our kitchen cabinets. Meadow got excited to use them all on one picture. "It's going to be beautiful!"

Leftover nacho toppings and chips are the best leftovers.

Then Tyler and Emma dropped off their kids while they finished some last things on their house.

I had spent the whole previous day helping them move their things into a storage unit. For the next couple of weeks they'll be staying with us while they find a tow vehicle for their long-term road trip.

Ring around the Brooke became a fun game. 

Before we had dinner I took the kids outside to play in the snow.

This has been a rare site this winter unless we went up to the cottage or up north.

Then we had the first of many double family meals.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

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.
