Another Weekend of Halloween Fun

The weekend before Halloween means its Meadow's friend Eleanor's birthday party. This year it was all My Little Pony themed. The kids got to decorate their own unicorn horn.


I asked Meadow what she wanted to be for Halloween last August. She wanted to be a fairy again. I eventually convinced her to be a butterfly. Then two days before the party she decided on being Wonder Woman.

We had a Rainbow Dash (color run) outside for the kiddos.

Meadow opted out of the race.


All the other kids had a blast.


Running while holding hands with friends was more fun for Meadow I guess.

With Scott having to work Meadow and I biked over to their house. I just love biking with her.

Back at home Meadow wanted to make a party hat out of paper. Since we put away most of her toys to keep the house clean Meadow has become very creative. She's always wanting to create things or draw.

I got home just in time to see her creating the party hats.

A party hat for Teddy.

Always around this time year I start wanting to get more into crafting. I decided for a Christmas gift for Meadow I'm going to attempt to make her a dress. We headed to my favorite fabric store, SR Harris.

Without telling Meadow what it was for, I asked her to pick out some fabric. She kept going across the aisle to the sparkly fabric.

For some reason going to SR Harris is fun. It's such a colorful mishmash of fabrics and people from every walk of life.

It's also a bit overwhelming when trying to decide on a color or pattern.

We finally settled on a blue linen fabric.

A yard of fabric, some elastic and buttons this dress only cost me $4.00.
As long as I don't screw it up of course.

Afterwards we headed to the Brooklyn Park Library a few blocks away.

We needed to kill some time before our next adventure.

We were going to BareBones once again to see their spooky puppet theater. First we needed to get dinner. Meadow wanted falafel, so we ended up at Shish on Grand Avenue.

Meadow did say she wanted falafel.

But she mostly ate her pita bread. She's not been too into eating dinners recently.

I had hoped to get to BareBones early enough to grab seats, but we missed out again and had to stand in the back. Little did we know we would see this skeleton again soon.

Brooke and I took turns holding Meadow. Eventually they got a seat near the end of the show.

Once we got home Meadow and I cozied up to her new books before bed.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
