A Week in at the Condo

One of the main reasons we picked the condo was the awesome location. We get to be close to restaurants and shops in every direction, but we also will still be near big parks. 

On the first day that Brooke worked after the move Meadow and I explored nearby Lyndale Farmstead. I knew there was a sled hill, but didn't realize that main hill was behind the Wirth House.

Kind of funny that our house was by Theo Wirth Parkway and now we live by his house.

We hadn't brought our sleds, but we did have our ice skates.

It's been freezing the past few weeks, so when it warmed up on Wednesday, Meadow and I went for a walk over to Lake Harriet and the slumbering rose garden.

The balmy day had made the lake quite puddly, but nothing that was unsafe for a good frozen lake hike.

A few fisherman were enjoying the warm ice fishing weather.

We'll be going to this beach a lot with Meadow and the new baby.

The reason I got Meadow to go for our little adventure was a promised playground. All was good until when we went back. She did not want to take the bird sanctuary route. Well, at least the first half of the mini-adventure was a success.

 I get pretty worn out from unpacking and end up falling asleep putting Meadow to bed. So on Sunday I woke up first and already had breakfast by the time Scott woke up.

Meadow was still sleeping and when I went to check on her she was all cocooned in her blankets.

Meadow and I made some simple waffles for breakfast while Brooke Skyped with her mom.

Notice that our condo isn't full of boxes anymore? We're almost there!

We had gone to the library on Saturday and Meadow found a Wonder Woman dvd. She watched that while we did more work on the place.

We had also went to Ikea on Saturday and picked up a few things to store random stuff.

Our dining room is finally coming together. We made an art area for Meadow on one side. 

We didn't do much more this day. We finished the night with some lentil and spinach pasta. It was meh.

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.
