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.

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
