A Minneapolis Farmers Market Visit and Not Much Else

Since having a farmers market in our neighborhood we haven't been to the big Minneapolis one all summer.

Meadow's also been getting braver at paying for things she wants.


We missed you Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

We picked up a lot of things on this trip.

We start every summer and fall grocery run by getting produce from one of the farmer's markets. Now that I had all the veggies we would need for more than a week I could figure out our meals for the next week or more.


One of the things we picked up at the market was this giant donut.

Meadow wanted her own and complained the whole way home. Once we were home she all about a piece of the big donut.

Theo was mad that he didn't get any. We ate the whole thing in one sitting.

Meadow and I decided to have a little daddy-daughter craft time. We did some watercolors together.

Then we bummed around the house all day.

I think Meadow and Theo watched Toy Story 2 for the fifth time in a a few weeks.

Little buddy loves when he does get to eat.

For dinner we had BLTs from our farmer's market finds.

We ended the night watching Toy Story 3.

I thought we'd never seen this one, but it turns out Brooke and I had watched years ago. At least Meadow was super excited about it.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Campervan Spring Break: Northern Iowa to Las Vegas, Nevada

Day 1: Minneapolis - Ozawkie, KS After last years awesome, but incredibly expensive San Francisco to Portland campervan vacation , I didn't think we'd be doing one of those again for years. But then Brooke had a work trip to Las Vegas and wanted us to tag along. That didn't quite work, but while researching a weekend campervan rental, I found a great relocation deal from northern Iowa to San Francisco during the kid's spring break. It didn't take much to persuade Brooke. Since our West Coast trip with  Escape Campervan 's we found out that almost all of the campervan and RV rental companies need vehicles moved from time to time. They often offer 90% or more off normal rental rates. But we didn't realize that every spring many of the campervan rental agencies also need vehicles moved from mostly Midwest factories to all over the USA and Canada. Lucky for us the Winnebago factory in Northern Iowa cranks out a bunch of rental vans. We had three proposed routes
