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.

The Week That Changed Minneapolis

We were supposed to be at the cottage for Memorial Day weekend, but long story short, that did not happen.
Instead we were invited for an outdoor cookout. On our way to Nate's house we had to stop and get gas. I had to document this moment because the last time we got gas was on March 8th coming home from my birthday weekend in Duluth.
Thanks, Covid.
Nate and jess invited us over for a vegan grill out. We jumped at the offer.
We brought the beers and a few snacks. They had much of everything else.
It felt a little strange to be at someone else's house. I also commented that this was the farthest north I had been in months.
Nate also grilled us some sci-fi vegan burgers and also had eggplant on the grill.
 Theo stole my camera again.

Nah, this was on my phone.
He must've gotten yours next.
Theo basically just ate fruit.
This kid could live off fruit alone.
We drank a bunch of beers.
More fruit Theo? Yes, yes he will.
The next day we were going to try and attempt to fish at Lake Harri…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.
Scott added granola to his oatmeal. 
The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.
Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof. 
Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing.
During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him.
Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale.
We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
Brussel sprouts on the stalk. How cool!
Pumpkins for carvin…
