Meadow, Mama and Theo Go to Open Streets Lyndale

After we ate breakfast Theo is ready for his first nap.

That is before they were to head out for the day.
Today was Open Streets Lyndale Avenue. We are lucky we live so close so we could walk. I took the kids while Scott stayed behind. I wish I could've biked. There's always next year.

We first spotted a petting zoo.

Then we saw a decorate your bike station. Meadow kept wanting to add more and more things her scooter.

We then spotted some kids making cotton candy outside their house. 

We took a break to feed Theo and next to us was a spin art booth. 

Next we found a bouncy house, this was turning out to be the best day ever for Meadow. 

The corner of Lake and Lyndale was where all the action was.

We walked until we found a balloon for Meadow then headed back home. 

I just had surgery, so I had to lay low for a few days.

I made Dutch pancakes for dinner. I used the recipe from Symmetry Breakfast and it turned out much poofier. 

Pretty much.

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
