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.

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
