Dinner for Lunch and Beer for Dinner

Meadow and I are working on a cat purse that she designed. I tell her what to do and she's been doing all the sewing herself.

She's going to be a fashion designer.

Her new favorite show is Project Runway.

Little buddy loves playing with cars.

Meadow likes Wii Fit.

We put back together the learning tower since Theo loves climbing up things. He thinks it's the greatest being able to see everything.

He helped me make some chickpea flatbread.

I almost finished my book except I ran short of a few pages. This time I actually finished it.

That's after she ordered a few more pages.

Photo books are expensive, whether digitally made or by hand. 

Roll, roll, roll the dough until...

you have some flatbread.

Since we were going to meet up with some friends during dinner, I made dinner for lunch. Falafel.

These two.

We met up with Shannyn, Brent, Allyson, Tom and their kids at Utepil's taproom.

This is one of my favorite Minnesota breweries. I'm a sucker for good German beers.

The kids went straight to working on their coloring. 

Theo and Allister are a few years apart, but that didn't stop them from having some fun.

Next year they will probably play together.

We happened to grab the table by all the games. 

The kids might have scared everyone away.

The place was packed when we arrived.

Sadly the food truck that was scheduled didn't show up.

We were driving home and decided we needed to get dinner and there's no better option then World Street Kitchen.

My Korean burrito hit the spot. Too bad Meadow's kids chicken was super spicy.

My Mexican egg sandwich was also epic. Sorry, Meadow.

We then headed across the street to the Waffle Bar for dessert.

I'd wanted to try this place out for a while.

Our waffle ice cream sundae was pretty good, but they should really tone down the bright white lighting.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Campervan Spring Break: Northern Iowa to Las Vegas, Nevada

Day 1: Minneapolis - Ozawkie, KS After last years awesome, but incredibly expensive San Francisco to Portland campervan vacation , I didn't think we'd be doing one of those again for years. But then Brooke had a work trip to Las Vegas and wanted us to tag along. That didn't quite work, but while researching a weekend campervan rental, I found a great relocation deal from northern Iowa to San Francisco during the kid's spring break. It didn't take much to persuade Brooke. Since our West Coast trip with  Escape Campervan 's we found out that almost all of the campervan and RV rental companies need vehicles moved from time to time. They often offer 90% or more off normal rental rates. But we didn't realize that every spring many of the campervan rental agencies also need vehicles moved from mostly Midwest factories to all over the USA and Canada. Lucky for us the Winnebago factory in Northern Iowa cranks out a bunch of rental vans. We had three proposed routes
