Our Last Saturday at the House on Queen Avenue

I had realized the other day that this will be our last weekend in this house. Also my last breakfast with Scott and Meadow here.

Don't worry, we'll have plenty of breakfasts at our new digs.

Meadow and I still have lingering colds so we had a smoothie with our breakfasts.

This kid really likes smoothies. It's like one of ten foods that she consistently eats.

I thought I was going to be making crepes this morning, but Meadow requested big pancakes. 

She was even getting mad when we wouldn't get out of bed to make them.

She had just made a butterfly mask a day earlier. She insisted on making another one today. Only this time she made a cat.

She moves too much to let us take a picture.

Trust us. It was a cat.

This weekend was dedicated to packing up as much as we could. 

I've been packing up every day, so we only have odds and ends left. That is, besides the kitchen which is our biggest packing job.

All day Meadow kept asking me to play with her. I told her this weekend wasn't going to be much fun and after we move we will have time to play. By the end of the day I agreed to read Amelia Bedelia Christmas to her, her new favorite book.

While packing things I found a random 100 piece puzzle. Meadow said it was too hard so we worked on it together.

 Apparently you did have some time to play. Ha.

Meanwhile I took a break from packing to make veggie paella. I don't think I would've ever made paella had I had not received this pan from the Torreses back in the day.

 Then I spent the rest of the night making a dress for Meadow for a Christmas gift. I had to work on this after she goes to bed. I really hope it fits her.

It's pretty darling. Good job, Killer Bee.

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

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
