Meadow Has A Playdate

Brooke had her wisdom teeth taken out, which means it would be a boring weekend. 

I was still pretty out of it 3 days later.

Luckily Meadow had a playdate. She put on one of her favorite dresses and asked me to tie the bow. That's what dad's do I guess.

Chipmunk mama and baby chipmunk stayed back while I took Meadow over to her friend Georgia's place.

The girls were quick to start crafting. I had planned on dropping off Meadow, but ended up staying the whole time and chatting with Georgia, Celia and Ruby's dads and Georgia's mom.

The girls came over for a snack.


And then Georgia's mom was nice enough to make all the girls lunches. We'll definitely have to do this again with all the mom's too.

I came back and fed little mess maker some black beans. This kid knows how to make a mess. Brooke was still super tired from the wisdom teeth surgery, so it was solo parenting much of the day.

I wish I had had my teeth taken out before kids. 

Meadow brought home some crafts from the day.

We finished the night with some soup of some sort. Totally don't remember. This is why I shouldn't wait when writing these posts.


Actually you and Meadow went to go see The Hobbit at the Childrens Theater so I made Theo and I roasted cauliflower soup.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

A Northwoods Mother's Day

My mom had texted me last week asking if we wanted to go to the cottage for Mother's Day. Scott didn't have any work on Monday so we headed there for the weekend. I was able to get off work a little early so we didn't have to get there so late.  Driving through Lindstrom Scott wanted to get donuts at the bakery. We didn't have any cash so we settled on ice cream at the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shop  in Center City. About 20 minutes before we got to the cottage Meadow threw up all her milk. Soaking herself and her carseat. She never threw up like this before. It was kind of scary. She kept asking for milk. I guess I should've known better.

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
