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.

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. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Donut Sundaes, Farmers Market Sundays and Canoeing Lake Harriet on a Sunday

We're trying to enjoy our last few weeks in our condo and the neighborhood. We have been going for daily walks, to the park mostly.   We will miss the park so much.   I saw on Instagram that Bogart's now has donut sundaes. We convinced the kids to leave their kickball game to go get some.    Also loving our new blender.    Thanks basement store. Not our neighborhood but one last trip to the farmer's market for the season. With our busy summer we barely made it out this year. There's nothing better than a farmers market visit. The house around the corner from our condo was having a rummage sale. We were hoping for the toy chest for Meadow's costumes but it was already sold. As much as Scott hates it we had to get one more canoe ride in.    I like canoeing. I don't love lugging it to the lake on a cart. This time it wasn't windy so we could go all the way around the lake.  Theo tried fishing to pass time.   Can't believe it took us nearly four years t

Florida or Bust: Alligators in the Swimming Hole, A Plantation Home, Memphis BBQ, Frozen Custard and an Arch in St. Louis, Mark Twains Home and Some Frank Lloyd Wright for Good Measure

Day 13 Another morning another new campsite. This time we drove back into Mississippi to Clear Springs campground in the Homochitto National Forest as we are taking US 61 back north. I tried to pretend I was sleeping. The little one knew better than that.
