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.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
