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 Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

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

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
