Let's Go to Anna'a Place

We all slept in super late this morning. This winter break has us staying up late and sleeping in.

It's going to be so hard this next week when Meadow goes back to school.

Meadow asked the other day why we still have Christmas decorations up if Christmas is over. I said we could take them down and she angrily said, "No! They have to stay up forever!"

So, the decorations stayed up a little longer.

Today we had a playdate with Anna and the kids. We hadn't seen them in awhile.

I stayed back and worked on some photos and videos I wanted to put together for our Northwoods NYE post. I hope you enjoyed them.

Meadow was a little shy at first then joined right in.


Back at home I was prepping gumbo and finally peeled away from my computer.

Green gumbo. One of my favorite meals.

This was one of Meadow's favorite meals when she was a toddler.

With traveling, being sick and the extra sweets around Meadow hasn't been eating well. With the new year she doesn't get any sweets until she has her dinner.

She also won't get any boxed mac and cheese until she's ate 30 dinners. As of writing this she's already up to eight nights in a row! 

If she eats all her dinner she gets hot chocolate.

She was so excited to use these mugs one last time before they went away for the year.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

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

With Fall Comes Apples

  Brooke decided to make breakfast for herself. I wanted some OJ, so I poured her a glass too. Bland oatmeal is just what I needed. Scott said he was going to call his mom. My aunt got back to me about attending our wedding. She was going to have foot surgery and couldn't travel. Sometimes I wish all my family lived in one area like Brooke's. I had to tell my mom. The night before I had my bridal shower/bachelorette at my house with my Twin Cities ladies. We had dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's later that night.  I was able to finish cleaning up before Scott got off the phone. My mom and I tend to talk a lot. I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
