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.

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

A Lovely Day

The time change didn't really affect me and I got up at my normal time. To Scott it meant sleeping in even later. While he was still asleep I worked on our meal planning and grocery list. Once I finally got up we were both ready to go grocery shopping. Brooke even had all the bags packed.   We tried to figure out somewhere to eat brunch. We had decided Bad Waitress when we remembered that the Lowry Cafe has breakfast and we hadn't been there in a long time. Brooke ordered the corned beef hash special. I got the mighty big Jordan breakfast. I was full for the rest of the day.  We mostly shop at the Seward Co-op even if it's halfway across town. Once the Lowry Bridge reopens we'll likely go to the Eastside Co-op more often. Via bike.  As always ,Brooke writes our dinner list on the chalkboard. According to Sprout Robot this week it's time to start tomato seeds. I like that their instructions come with little drawings.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s
