Meadow Goes to School and a Sleepy Sunday

We had got back from northern Minnesota a couple days before Meadow had to start school. On that Monday I had no time to do anything. I wanted to take Meadow on an adventure before she was at school everyday.

The day before school started I took Meadow and Theo to Lindstrom. We got lunch at the Swedish Inn.

Then we got some treats at the Lindstrom Bakery.

Meadow was super excited for the molasses gingerbread bear.

Of course, we had to stop by the Franconia Sculpture Park.

They always get to go without me.



Meadow's never happier than a couple hours running around, checking out the strange and beautiful sculptures.

She was also loving her Batgirl pose.

This time she was really into this mirror sculpture.


She's suddenly become quite the fashion model. Funny kid.

Then our little Meadow had her first day of school. 

Wonder Woman lunchbox. Check.

Cool shoes. Check. She was ready for a day at her new school.


Theo didn't like that his buddy was leaving him alone at home.




At the end of the day she stood a bit taller.

The following Monday was Labor Day. We had stayed in town, I shot my buddies wedding, the family attended and we didn't do much of anything that Sunday. Monday was more of the same.

Meadow requested chocolate Big Pancake with sprinkles.

Since coming back from our trip our house has been in chaos. This is my I finally got the living room clean dance.

This is my "she just put everything in the hamper for me to put away days later" face.

Not everyone gets to stay home all day.
Do you like the living room clean Theo?

Yes, yes I do.

Onto the dining room.

Meadow wanted to see how big Theo is.

We lounged around the house, cleaned up and made a grocery list.

Today we didn't have much going on for a Labor Day. Since we had that wedding on Saturday we stuck around the city. It's been a long time since we haven't done anything on this holiday weekend.

We're almost always at the cottage or on another adventure for Labor Day. Instead we went grocery shopping. To our surprise the co-op was open and Costco was closed. 

Theo loves avocado.

He's become so hands on. I remember not too long ago he'd be dropping anything you handed him.

Theo helped me prep dinner. Cauliflower and corn tacos are hard to beat.

Such a easy and tasty summer meal.

Before bed Theo checked out Meadow's tent bunk. She's a little rough with him sometimes. He was not having it.

Usually he doesn't mind being by Meadow.

It's just the start of their love-hate relationship.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

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

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
