How To Do Nothing On a Sunday

Meadow requested banana split waffles for breakfast.

Well, we had no maple syrup, but we did have bananas and chocolate syrup.

She then showed off her letter writing skills.

It hasn't taken long for her to boast about everything she's learning at school.

Little buddy is a good sitter now.

Meadow can eat at a glacial pace at times. I guess it's good that school hasn't made her a quick eater yet.

Theo is also working on his army crawl.

While Scott watched the Packer game. Meadow and I did some shopping.

Will this team ever play a full game? Come on Packers!

We first went over to Michael's to pick up a new cutting mat that I ordered. I also checked out frames.

 Then we headed over to the Halloween Store where Meadow was in heaven.

 This made me laugh. She also tried on a giant hand giving the middle finger and said, "I have an idea!"

 This would have been an awesome costume for Scott if it wasn't so expensive.

 I almost got this thinking it would be an easy costume.

Too bad it was for little boys.
We made one last stop at Target to get a red outfit for Scott's Flash costume.




Back at home we all dressed up as super heroes.

Well, everyone except for me. My costume still has to be made.

Oof we really need to paint our place.

The cutest little superman.

Today seemed like a good day to knock things off our to do list.

We finally put up one of Meadow's shelves.

I picked up this frame for half off at Michaels.

That's our map from our first full-family canoe trek in the Boundary Waters a month or so ago.

We also had a pile of pictures sitting in our hallway waiting to be hung up since May.

First we had to frame a few more things.

Theo's first wild rice dinner.

I made more wild rice than the recipe had called for, but that was OK.  Theo got a yummy meal and we got wild rice soup from the Duluth Grill Cookbook.

I also listened in as the Brewers won a playoff series for only the second time in my life. Meadow wanted me to turn it off of course.

Meadow requested that we take down her tent for a bit.

Now she's got a little shelf, a mirror and her "M" right by her pillow. Now we need a "T" for Theo.

Good night Meadow.

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…
