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.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
