You Can Still Garden in the Condo Life

Good morning, Theo!

Good morning Minneapolis.

When we moved in there was a bunch of plants in our stairway that were dead. We are assuming the previous owners of our unit left them there. I had always meant to replace them and finally got around to it. We did a mix of herbs, cactus, succulents and flowers.

We'll see if starting from seed works in there.

The last time I was at my parents my mom gave me her old set of weights. I've since started doing some arm workouts. Scott picks on me for doing this, but I feel like I've been very inactive since getting pregnant. 

She's probably right. I'd love to go on more bike rides, but it's hard with the newborn.

It seems that Meadow always wants to play something. We pretend that all of her Barbies are superheroes. 

The north side of our building has garden beds.

They were built by old residents without the new garden unit owners knowledge. Since then it's only been used by their unit.

The basement unit recently sold and since we are the only full time owners in the building it is now ours. Happy Mother's Day to me. 

Since this is the only patch we have to take care of I don't mind yard work this year.

I did clean up some other areas that needed tending while Brooke planted the garden.

We discovered a concrete slab next to the garage under a lot of dirt and weeds. It would be neat to turn this space into a sitting area since our condo lacks a yard.

We were all tired after being outside all morning.

Isn't it strange how baby's necks can turn?

I made an old recipe of ours, black bean and cream cheese enchiladas.

This must be because no one ever takes pictures of me.

Meadow and Theo did some tummy time. I have to admit I haven't been doing it as much with Theo. He just screams whenever I put him on his stomach.

That's probably why.

Okay okay I will pick you up.

Scott suggested going out for brunch buffet for Mother's Day. I said I would rather spend the money on some new clothes. So for the rest of the day I made Meadow a Wonder Woman crown.

She loved it so much.

Her new crown inspired us to play some more superheroes.  

Then we ended our day watching Dumbo. Every week we check out a Disney movie from the library. We hope to watch all of them.

Meadow was way more excited about this than this picture would make you think.

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

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
