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.

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.
