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.

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
