Baby's First Mayday

Since we got home from the cottage Meadow and Theo developed a deep chest cough. We took them to the doctor, but it turned out to just be a cold. The next day both Scott and I started feeling down. 

I felt pretty rundown the morning of the MayDay parade and thought I'd stay home. I ended up tagging along after seeing how much stuff Brooke would have to carry.

I didn't want to sit at home all day again and I thought the fresh air would do us good. On to the Mayday parade we went. 

We've been coming from over north and always sat near the beginning of the parade closer to Franklin Avenue. Since we came from our new place further south we ended up right by Lake Street.

Usually this area is packed when we walk by, I guess coming early meant prime seating.

When Meadow saw the skeleton coming down the street she said, "Hey it's the skeleton!"

This guy has been everywhere this year.

Every year the Grease Pit train gets bigger and bigger.

It's getting pretty outrageous.

I want to know where they got the dinosaur head. 



The parade was starting a lot later since we sat further along on the parade route.

Theo woke up to watch the parade for awhile.


The parade was pretty low key this year.

The highlight was seeing my old co-worker Tommy as the center of a giant flower.



This parade is great for people watching and to see all the different bike rigs.

This little girl tried her darnedest to reach the pedals.

Theo was getting antsy so we walked a few blocks over to meet up with Cayla and Amanda.

When Meadow saw the Power Puff Girl popsicle at the nearby ice cream truck we had to get it.

We settled for the fruity pops.

This was perfect for my scratchy throat.
 
Eventually Cayla and Amanda showed up out of the masses. They were pretty excited to see Theo.

Meadow and Amanda are besties.

Meadow just adores these two, as do we.

Since we weren't feeling great we passed on seeing the show this year.

We went back to Lake Street to get tamales and tacos at Mercado Central.

We took the bus home and Meadow borrowed Scott's camera to take some shots. 


Pretty arty, little gal!


She's not bad for a newby.

Our bus home was delayed and we waited almost an hour for it to arrive. I guess we could have walked. 

Meadow stole the camera again when we finally got on the bus.

Once on the bus we had to wait even more. The bus driver had been delayed by some hooligan or shenanigans. This short ride home was taking way longer than expected.

Meadow had made herself a sweaty mess. So, when we got back she took a bath while Theo watched her wash his feet.

Then we put our sickie selves to bed early.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
