St Nick 2017

 This year Scott had to work on the morning of St. Nick's, so I took the morning off. Luckily I could be with Meadow when she opened her stocking. The night before I made "snow" tracks coming into the house. When Meadow saw them she said, "Hey who left those?"


 The other day Nolan and Meadow had gotten into her stocking and Nolan put her ornament on the tree. Chelsea didn't think Meadow saw it. When Meadow saw the ornament she said, "Hey how did he know I wanted this ornament?"


 I explained to Meadow the night before that we had to put carrots out for St Nick's horse. We didn't have carrots so we did parsnips instead. Meadow then suggested we give him some cabbage too. Then she realized the horse might be thirsty so we should also put out some water. And she wanted to put out toys for the horse, but I explained they were going to be busy going to other houses and that was very thoughtful of her.

 Her main thing that she asked for this year was a lollipop. Sadly when we opened it the lollipop came apart in pieces and broke off the stick. 

In all, she got a lollipop, snowman pajamas, snowman ornament, Arthur book and playing cards.

Honeymoon: You've Got to Go to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Day 9
I'm sure bears like popcorn, but we didn't see any. It was raining so we skipped making breakfast and ate our snack food instead.

Duluth for Work and Exploring East Lake After the Chaos

Oh, hey. It's our neighborhood.
The kids wanted to play with the Potato Heads and made our family with them.
There's Theo.
No, wait, there's the real Theo.
I had a job up in Duluth, so I asked Meadow if she wanted to come up with me. She could spend the day with Blake whose done a good job social distancing.
The poor kid has been stuck at home for so long. I stayed back with Theo, I figured these two could have a little trip together.
We arrived the night before and met little Ruth, Blake and Daniel's new dog.

We played in his yard for a bit and then a double rainbow showed up.

It was pretty great in person.
We walked through Blake's new neighborhood, Central Hillside.
Meadow even got to walk Ruth.
She loves walking dogs.

We got some food from the King of Creams and brought it to a nearby park.
Then we played on the play

Friends and Family Come from Far and Farther

My family lives on every possible extreme of the American experience (well no one is in Alaska...at this point). My brother lives in NYC, my sis is in lovely San Jose and my aunts live in Phoenix and Tampa respectively. This means I don't get to see them all that often.
For our wedding I was super excited to bring the whole family together; the aunts and uncle and couldn't make it, but would get to see Colin, Katrina and Dennis and the 'rents.
As an added bonus, my best friend of all time, the Olger Nano, was coming from St. Martin in the Carribean to officiate my wedding. What a guy!
Yes. Olger was probably one of the best wedding presents we got. 
I spent most of the Wednesday before the wedding picking up friends and family from the airport. I wish I had brought my camera, but most of our wedding weekend was chronicled by my awesome Tuska and Romenesko siblings.
I met Colin at MSP's Humphrey Terminal and we then headed to MOA to kill some time and find a belt for the w…
