The Last Mayday?

I was making cardamon and sour cream waffles when I hear my camera go off.


Apparently Theo also wanted to snap a picture or two.

How I do waffles.

I guess how I do waffles. This recipe was a good change of pace.

 Theo likes the mini waffles the best.

I'm so glad to be back to biking more again.

It almost feels like Summer.

The Yuba has been a great purchase so far.

Worth every penny.

Theo went for the dirt.

Meadow wanted to take pictures just like papa.

She caught this couple with their makeshift bike. The front rider sits backwards so they can play chess.

That's a little close baby bear.




She took a bunch of pics before the parade, but then wanted to focus on the parade and not taking pictures.

This guys was squirming and exploring every which way.


We were planning on meeting with some friends, but if one thing in life is true, it's that you'll run into old friends, but never the people you intended to.

This always happens at Mayday.

Theo was afraid of the drumming.





If Heart of the Beast Theatre can't get funding figured out this might be the last MayDay Parade. For some reason I think the community will come to the rescue every year.


Theo did watch at times.







This section was the most fun.

That flying baby and cat were weird in a good way.

If there's a parade next year maybe we can join the Girl Scout crowd.



Normally we head to the park once the Free Speech section starts. This year we decided to skip the puppet show and stay for the whole parade.

We watched as the crust punks took over the parade right before the "Free Speech Zone."

Meadow did take a few pics during the parade.

Look who we spotted.


Hey Emma, Olive and June.

Then we went to pick up some of Meadow's favorite tamales.
 
We followed a trail of other cargo bikers to Lake Street.

At the park we had a little picnic feast.

We were tired and decided to head back home.

Meadow worked on her drawing for teacher appreciation week.

Last week, Theo took his first steps. He never repeated it again all week.

I was tired and we recently realized that Taco Cat delivers to our place. So, we got white boy bike-delivered burritos to end our MayDay/Cindo de Mayo.

I've gotten in the habit of doing yoga or stretches before bed.

Theo did some more standing practices.

That's his yoga. This kids gonna be running around before you know it.

Honeymoon: You've Got to Go to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Day 9
I'm sure bears like popcorn, but we didn't see any. It was raining so we skipped making breakfast and ate our snack food instead.

Duluth for Work and Exploring East Lake After the Chaos

Oh, hey. It's our neighborhood.
The kids wanted to play with the Potato Heads and made our family with them.
There's Theo.
No, wait, there's the real Theo.
I had a job up in Duluth, so I asked Meadow if she wanted to come up with me. She could spend the day with Blake whose done a good job social distancing.
The poor kid has been stuck at home for so long. I stayed back with Theo, I figured these two could have a little trip together.
We arrived the night before and met little Ruth, Blake and Daniel's new dog.

We played in his yard for a bit and then a double rainbow showed up.

It was pretty great in person.
We walked through Blake's new neighborhood, Central Hillside.
Meadow even got to walk Ruth.
She loves walking dogs.

We got some food from the King of Creams and brought it to a nearby park.
Then we played on the play

Friends and Family Come from Far and Farther

My family lives on every possible extreme of the American experience (well no one is in Alaska...at this point). My brother lives in NYC, my sis is in lovely San Jose and my aunts live in Phoenix and Tampa respectively. This means I don't get to see them all that often.
For our wedding I was super excited to bring the whole family together; the aunts and uncle and couldn't make it, but would get to see Colin, Katrina and Dennis and the 'rents.
As an added bonus, my best friend of all time, the Olger Nano, was coming from St. Martin in the Carribean to officiate my wedding. What a guy!
Yes. Olger was probably one of the best wedding presents we got. 
I spent most of the Wednesday before the wedding picking up friends and family from the airport. I wish I had brought my camera, but most of our wedding weekend was chronicled by my awesome Tuska and Romenesko siblings.
I met Colin at MSP's Humphrey Terminal and we then headed to MOA to kill some time and find a belt for the w…
