Let's Go Play in the Sand...and then the Snow

Oh, these two.

Theo is suddenly really good at eating with a spoon.

He's even better at having tons of food on the ground.

I told Meadow if she put her laundry away she could play on the iPad. Little girl has style.




We kept on saying we should go somewhere, but for some reason it just kept on being put off.

These two were cute in their fort.

Eventually we made it out of the house to the MN Zoo. 

It was only open for two more hours, but at least we weren't stuck at home.


Meadow wanted to make sure I got a pictures of the purple starfish.


She just stared and stared at the seahorses.

They have a giant indoor sandbox.

This is the main reason we came here.

Theo was having the time of his life. He's going to love going to the beach this summer.

The kiddo was doing really well, but eventually he started eating sand.



He must've thought the shovel was a giant spoon.


We stayed until we were kicked out.

We made a stop for some groceries before heading home.

When we got home we saw the neighbors building a snowfort. Meadow joined them right away.


Not so sure about the soup.

I guess the Lebanese lentil soup was a bit too spicy for this guy.

Not spicy hot but lots of flavors spicy.

We were eating dinner and our neighbor boys and their dad were still hard at work with Meadow's help.

We spent the rest of the evening researching purchasing a new family bike.

We found a heck of a deal on a used Yuba Mundo Lux 21 speed cargo bike (version 4.2, not the newest one) for the same price as their dumbed down 7 speed version of the same bike.

When we were looking for said bike on the interwebs we heard a loud noise outside. We've had so much snow that our plow guy had run out of room. This driving snow plow looked like a contraption out of Beauty and the Beast.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
