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.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Faribault Bike Ride Makes Us Buy Meadow a New to Her Bike

Scott had some shoots south of the metro so we tagged along for the day. 
After shooting the quickest shoots I've ever done we ended up in Faribault. We got food at the lowest rated Mexican restaurant in the southern Minnesota city. My instincts say these folks don't have a taste for authentic Mexican food and I was right. Restaurante El Colibri was so good.
The trick to finding good Mexican food is avoiding the places that have the typical Mexican restaurant decor, you know the ones with the painted seats. 
We brought along our bikes so we could take the Sakatah Singing Hills  State Trail. 15 miles from Fairbault is the namesake Sakatah Lake State Park. There they have 4 bike in camp spots (they were reduced to two because of COVID). We thought about bike camping there , but sites are first come first served and we'd hate to bike there with all our stuff only to find they were full.
Always doing tricks.
Instead we just went for a nice, really flat, bike ride.

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
