Kite Festivals and Late Night Chinese Takeout

Meadow sleeps in the strangest positions.


The two of them could really share a bed if they chose sides.

Baby breakfast.

Mama breakfast.

My ankle was finally feeling better after a wicked ankle twist back in December. Now I'm back on the Wii Fit train.

Then it was time to check out the Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival.

I had a bad feeling as we got closer and I didn't see any kites in the air.

There were still a lot of folks out on the ice.

Theo was not impressed by the cold and lack of kites.

You could try out fat bikes thanks to the bike shop near our condo, Farmstead Bike Shop.

Theo was still not in the mood. Truth be told, the little guy and I were a bit under the weather.

We tried, but couldn't get the kites to stay up long.

We walked around and people watched instead.

Eventually there was enough wind for a little kite flying.

Check out that homemade kick sled.



Some kites were successful but none of the big guys were out.


Before we could leave Meadow had to leave her mark on the lake.


I had guacamole for lunch.

It was supposed to be a snack withe leftover soup, but Brooke basically ate it all.




Meadow and I ran to the library quick before it closed.


I love cuddling with these tiny tykes.

Since Scott and the kids were sick we were lazy the rest of the day.

Eventually we got hungry and ordered Chinese takeout at like 9:00.

It hit the spot.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend
