One Last Saturday as a Family of Three

I'm past my due date and still no baby.

So we might as well try to have some fun.
After sitting around debating what to do we decided to walk to the library. I figure the baby is not going to come if I keep sitting around. Meadow gets "tired" on walks recently, so with it being a little warmer, we asked if she wanted to ride her bike. 

For the most part she rode and rode.


Except for one small slip on some ice she made it the whole way.

Once we got to Minnehaha Creek we were just about to the library.

Once at Washburn Library we played for a while with the light table and then Meadow played in the make-believe store. We also picked a few more movies. We're working our way through all the Pixar and Disney movies. She also got a heavy pile of books.

Afterwards we walked over to Patisserie 46 to check it out. My flourless chocolate raspberry cake was really good.

Meadow and I both got linzer heart cookies and shared a chocolate chip cookie. They all fit the bill.

And we shared an Arnie Palmer.

When we got home I made a mac and cheese pizza out of our leftover pizza dough and mac and cheese. It was quite good, but super rich. 

That night we watched the Olympics and the gals went to bed early.

I went to the last Hollow Boys show all by lonesome when everyone went to bed. Two of my old friends are in the band (they played our wedding) and I couldn't miss it. Too bad Brooke couldn't make it out too.

Today also happened to be the 12th Anniversary of when Scott and I met. A date would have been nice.

Campervan Spring Break: Northern Iowa to Las Vegas, Nevada

Day 1: Minneapolis - Ozawkie, KS After last years awesome, but incredibly expensive San Francisco to Portland campervan vacation , I didn't think we'd be doing one of those again for years. But then Brooke had a work trip to Las Vegas and wanted us to tag along. That didn't quite work, but while researching a weekend campervan rental, I found a great relocation deal from northern Iowa to San Francisco during the kid's spring break. It didn't take much to persuade Brooke. Since our West Coast trip with  Escape Campervan 's we found out that almost all of the campervan and RV rental companies need vehicles moved from time to time. They often offer 90% or more off normal rental rates. But we didn't realize that every spring many of the campervan rental agencies also need vehicles moved from mostly Midwest factories to all over the USA and Canada. Lucky for us the Winnebago factory in Northern Iowa cranks out a bunch of rental vans. We had three proposed routes

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Campervan Spring Break: Death Valley to San Francisco

  When we arrived in Death Valley it was 90F. The first thing we had to do was find a place to stay for the night.  Well, after we got Junior Ranger books of course. The campsites in Furnace Creek were booked but there were lots of openings at Stovetop Wells.  Furnace Creek is the only developed campground that takes reservations. The rest our first come first served. I wanted to stay near Mesquite Spring Campground, but we decided that was too far afield. Not our typical campsite, this was more like a parking lot, but we're just here to sleep so whatever.  Most of the campgrounds look something like this, but smaller. After paying for our campsite we got ready to hike and headed to the nearby sand dunes. This is the largest national park and everything is spaced far apart. We stayed close to our campsite and went over to the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes .  We got there just in time for a nice hike across the dunes during sunset. The kids loved it here.  It's funny how much more t
