Forgetful Parents on a November Grocery Run

We planned on doing a bunch of errands today. So for breakfast we ate some caramel pumpkin kringle from Racine, Wisconsin's O&H Bakery. I totally forgot Trader Joe's had their kringle. I guess that place is good for something after all.

The Minneapolis Farmers Market runs until the weekend before Thanksgiving. I thought we would check it out and stock up one last time. Turns out nobody is selling produce anymore.

With the early snow and cold temps the season is over. I did manage to get some cider.

Meadow has been a good helper lately.

Brooke did a nice job livening up the stairway with more succulents after some herbs died.

This kid was so cute in his one-piece snowsuit. He was probably disappointed he didn't get to show it off at the Minneapolis Farmers Market.

I got sick of having to feed Theo while I'm trying to eat.  I dehydrated his baby food and cut them into strips so he can feed himself.

This is so much easier and he learns good eye-hand coordination.


I took the kids over to the library for a family craft day.


The craft today was painting with pom poms on canvas.  Meadow was so proud of her picture.

After this Meadow and I went to Costco. I hate going there on the weekend. When we got back to the car I couldn't find my keys. I was thinking, oh great now I will have to retrace my steps and hope that someone brought them to the front desk. I was sitting in the car thinking this, when I realized, wait a second, how did I get in the car? They were in the trunk the whole time.


She did manage to lose our grocery list. So, we had to rewrite the co-op half from memory.

After a family trip to the co-op we settled in for the night with a movie.

Actually a bunch of Pixar shorts. I'm so glad Meadow likes their movies as much as Brooke and I. Oh, and the hot cider wasn't bad either.

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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
