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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
