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.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
