Donut Walks are the Best Walks

Smoothie face cutie.

This kid gets in so much trouble, but he's darn cute.

Another snowstorm rolled through our parts. Unlike most Minnesotan's I wasn't surprised to see another one this winter.

It snows, like, every April, folks.

Our first stop was donuts at Bogart's, but we weren't sure if they'd have anything left.

Did we make it before the doughnuts sold out?

I guess we made it.

They must be making more because there never is this many at this time of the day.

Brooke was clearly happy to have her pick of donuts.

Of course Meadow picked sprinkles, but the donut started falling apart along the walk.

Next we walked over to Uptown.

Little buddy was getting sleepy.

We walked into Papersource because I thought Meadow would dig it.

 I knew she'd love this store.

We also went to CB2 to look at some couches and beds. Maybe this year will be the year we get adult furniture.

Meadow really wanted this mirror. The circle one in the pink rock.

Hint, hint, Aunt Jen.

We also stopped in H&M. Meadow got a different dress and I got a sweater.

The main reason for our walk was to go the library. 

Even with no stairs in our unit Theo is an old pro at getting up and down them.

Yup.

We went to Sotarol for lupper. I'd had the food truck before, but no one else had been here.

Meadow was excited to read her new books.

My sushi burrito was so good.

Still reading.

Meadow's shrimp fried rice was so good.




When we were walking back I saw that Mohn Electric was closing. How sad.

They helped us build our chandelier in our old house.

Lately Meadow has been asking for a pet. I found my old Tamagotchi while looking for something else and thought it would be perfect for Meadow.

One of our neighbors messaged me and asked if Meadow wanted a chicken suit. I said yes and picked it up.

Mending, movies and popcorn.

A few days later the weather warmed up and most of the snow melted. 

So, we went for a family bike ride.

Gotta love biking with the kiddos and this gal.

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
