Old Neighbors and Good Friends from the Northside

Whenever we feed Theo and he wants more he throws his arms in the air and yells.

My old neighborhood friend Joel was selling his house on the Northside and we thought we'd stop by. 

I had no idea his home was this beautiful.

He made a lot of upgrades to the house.

I loved the kitchen. 

The refrigerator was disguised as an ice box.

This porch! Joel did an amazing job rehabbing this home. I guess it's already pending a sale.

Since we were in our old 'hood we stopped by to see our old neighbors.

We missed Wes and Sandy!

Sadly we heard stories of how the new owners tore through all the screens and they had children sleeping in the basement.

Still, it was great seeing them and catching up. Get well soon Sandy.

After a quick jaunt to get a photo I needed for a recent job, we drove to Excelsior to get some frozen custard at Adele's.

Over the summer I purchased an ice cream punch card to various ice cream shoppes around the twin cities. Some places I'd never heard of. This one is a classic.

They even let Brooke get a waffle cone. Sweet!

We had pizza planned for dinner so I invited Shannyn and Brent to join us. They hadn't seen our new place yet.

I went all out turning leftovers into awesome pizzas. Poutine and plain cheese to start.

Then Mexican, mac and cheese and pepperoni to finish.

Eleanor and Meadow couldn't be separated. These two just always have too much fun.

Hopefully we can make friends like them in our new neighborhood. Finding babysitters has been getting tougher.

Is that all your friends are good for? Ha.

A Duluth Cabin for Brooke's 35th

Meadow has added her commentary. Hers will be in bold. 
For those who don't remember, Scottie = Italics & Brooke = plain jane.
As tradition we stayed at a cabin for my birthday weekend. This year I found a place on Hipcamp that happened to be in Duluth.


Mexico 2020 - CDMX - Hipódromo

Day 1 After saving up for a few years we were finally ready to take a real family vacation. Our original plan was to rent a camper van in San Diego and drive down into Baja California. When we couldn't find any rental places that allow you to cross the border we decided on Mexico City.


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.  Scott braved the swarm of bugs to read what the sign said.

We thought about dispersed camping. This basically means you camp wherever you'd like, but leave no trace. This is only allowed in state and national forests.The bugs were ferocious, so we rethought this plan.

And we needed to be near a bathroom. 

Sand Dunes State Forest (as well as many other SFs) also has designated camping. We found a spot we liked and walked in to our site.

 While unpacking our gear we found candy. Scott was pretty excited. We couldn't figure out why it was i…
