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.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

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.
