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.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.



Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to live bef…
