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.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Freaster Sunday

We decided to stay home for Easter this year. We've missed the past few years and seem to be okay with it. We still celebrate in our own way. For breakfast I made oat bran. This time I sweetened it with a little agave. Scott seems to think I only like my oats bland, but that's not true. I make truly interesting oats. Agave, my friends, does not make oatmeal tasty. If you're looking for a quick, but complex variation try this recipe the next time you have a few extra minutes -- unless you like bland-meal. Steel-cut Oats w/ Apple Chips, Raisins and Cinnamon 1 C Water 2/3 C Steel Cut Oats Handful of Apple Chips 1/4 C Raisins 2 T Brown Sugar 1 t Cinnamon Pinch of Salt Cook the first two ingredients for a few minutes over medium heat. When water starts to simmer lower heat and add dried fruit. Cook until tender. While still on heat add a teaspoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Eat. Scott looked for his Easter ba

Food Daze

Remember why we needed a freezer? We did order one from Best Buy that week, but it was on backorder until July 21. We still didn't get it and now they are saying it could be August 28. You have no idea how hard it is to go through the whole summer not being able to make our own ice cream or popsicles. Buying ice cream is nothing compared to making homemade. Please cross your fingers with us in hopes we get it soon. Since Scott had to be to work at 11. We got up early and drove to the farmers market. We had to get there fast, so we couldn't bike. As Brooke noted a few posts back, it seems like more and more people are coming to the Sunday market. It can be pretty chaotic. It took us nearly ten minutes to park. There was so much to choose from this time around. It's a lot more fun to go to the market this time of year. It's really amazing what diverse crops grow in Minnesota's short summer. Makes one wish we didn't waste so much fertile land
