Our First Kingfield Farmers Market Sunday at the New Place

Since Brooke went back to work, I've been snuggling with these two every morning. Even with Brooke off the for the weekend, I couldn't help myself.

Theo loved looking at himself in the mirror one day so I brought it down again for him.

I made some big pancakes and tried making mine in a wok. None of them rose up this time, but mine had a wonderful eggy texture.

The key is to mix everything together right before adding it to the hot pan.

The other day I tried putting Theo in the bike trailer with the stroller attachment on. He fits pretty good, but no biking quite yet. We had to walk to the farmers market in neighboring Kingfield, so we used the stroller attachment.

We had wanted to use an infant seat in the trailer to take him for bike rides, but with the seat in there his little feet stick out.

I am really loving how walkable our new neighborhood is. Once Theo can go for bike rides we won't be using our car much except for long trips.

There wasn't much produce; likely because of the long winter. We got some bacon and eggs instead of a bunch of produce.

And some radishes.

We were walking back when Meadow saw the playground at MLK Park. I thought we should let our little rascal play for a bit.

It was actually chilly.

Our new place (I guess we've lived here 5 months, so it's not that new) has Peonies. They had already bloomed and started withering away, so I gave a few to Meadow.

Then Brooke organized the garage while I put on Brooke's new rear rack.


We've been cooking meals from the Symmetry Breakfast cookbook. It had been going pretty well until I attempted the kimchi tempura, but it failed miserably. The rest of the meal, Moco Loco, reminded me of an asian beef stroganoff. 

This book is great. All breakfast foods for this breakfast lover. 

The reason I had put racks on our bikes is that we got a Yepp Maxi Easyfit. I had planned on getting a Maxi Nexxt, which fits directly on most bike racks, but we're planning on getting a Yuba at some point. Yepp Maxis fit directly on their rack.

Anyways, long story short. We got this Yepp Maxi on Craiglist with two EasyFit adapters. I installed them, and after bit of troubleshooting, I was ready to take Meadow for a ride. She was so excited to ride around the block "in the street."

We really got this for Theo, but since he can't use it until he's 9 months old Meadow gets it for awhile. 

After Brooke and Meadow went for a ride, I put the Yepp back on my bike and we went for a little bike ride to Sebastian Joe's.

It's so easy to switch the seats to a different bike. I wish we had known about this when Meadow first started riding. 

We now live closer to the Linden Hills Seb Joe's. That means biking around Lake Harriet and up a few of said hills.

We are near so many ice cream shops that are walking or biking distance. Our old neighborhood only had Dairy Queen in the nearest suburb. 

And we were there.

Meadow wanted to eat at the shop, but I told her calmly that we had a cone for her at home.

And I delivered on that promise.

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…
