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.

Honeymoon: You've Got to Go to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Day 9
I'm sure bears like popcorn, but we didn't see any. It was raining so we skipped making breakfast and ate our snack food instead.

Duluth for Work and Exploring East Lake After the Chaos

Oh, hey. It's our neighborhood.
The kids wanted to play with the Potato Heads and made our family with them.
There's Theo.
No, wait, there's the real Theo.
I had a job up in Duluth, so I asked Meadow if she wanted to come up with me. She could spend the day with Blake whose done a good job social distancing.
The poor kid has been stuck at home for so long. I stayed back with Theo, I figured these two could have a little trip together.
We arrived the night before and met little Ruth, Blake and Daniel's new dog.

We played in his yard for a bit and then a double rainbow showed up.

It was pretty great in person.
We walked through Blake's new neighborhood, Central Hillside.
Meadow even got to walk Ruth.
She loves walking dogs.

We got some food from the King of Creams and brought it to a nearby park.
Then we played on the play

Friends and Family Come from Far and Farther

My family lives on every possible extreme of the American experience (well no one is in Alaska...at this point). My brother lives in NYC, my sis is in lovely San Jose and my aunts live in Phoenix and Tampa respectively. This means I don't get to see them all that often.
For our wedding I was super excited to bring the whole family together; the aunts and uncle and couldn't make it, but would get to see Colin, Katrina and Dennis and the 'rents.
As an added bonus, my best friend of all time, the Olger Nano, was coming from St. Martin in the Carribean to officiate my wedding. What a guy!
Yes. Olger was probably one of the best wedding presents we got. 
I spent most of the Wednesday before the wedding picking up friends and family from the airport. I wish I had brought my camera, but most of our wedding weekend was chronicled by my awesome Tuska and Romenesko siblings.
I met Colin at MSP's Humphrey Terminal and we then headed to MOA to kill some time and find a belt for the w…
