We Pay Our Respects to George Floyd and Survey the City

We've been having talks with Meadow about what's going on lately. It can be hard to explain without her actually seeing it. We've had the news on more, but I thought she should see some things in person. 
This Sunday we came to 38th and Chicago to pay our respects to George Floyd.
I had wanted to come during a weekday morning as I knew it would be busy on the weekend. Masks and hand sanitizer were required before entering. 
The names of black people killed by the police were painted on the road. 





Black Lives Matter. The current structure of policing does not make many Minneapolitans safer, especially BIPOC people. Change needed to happen years ago, but hopefully we reach for a new understanding of what public safety means.
We decided to grab some lunch at our favorite tamale and taco places. Lake Street needs our business more than ever right now.
First I picked tamales for the kids at La Loma.
Then we got some tacos and a burrito at Taco Taxi. 

The Week That Changed Minneapolis

We were supposed to be at the cottage for Memorial Day weekend, but long story short, that did not happen.
Instead we were invited for an outdoor cookout. On our way to Nate's house we had to stop and get gas. I had to document this moment because the last time we got gas was on March 8th coming home from my birthday weekend in Duluth.
Thanks, Covid.
Nate and jess invited us over for a vegan grill out. We jumped at the offer.
We brought the beers and a few snacks. They had much of everything else.
It felt a little strange to be at someone else's house. I also commented that this was the farthest north I had been in months.
Nate also grilled us some sci-fi vegan burgers and also had eggplant on the grill.
 Theo stole my camera again.

Nah, this was on my phone.
He must've gotten yours next.
Theo basically just ate fruit.
This kid could live off fruit alone.
We drank a bunch of beers.
More fruit Theo? Yes, yes he will.
The next day we were going to try and attempt to fish at Lake Harri…

A Brief Duluth Respite and Another Tough Week in Minneapolis

Minneapolis has become worldwide news. The killing of George Floyd at the hands of police had sparked protests and riots in the city. The riots had moved closer to our neighborhood which meant little sleep. 
I'd been watching over the street each night as rioting erupted. It wasn't until that Thursday that I realized that it was unsettling Brooke. At 1:30 in the morning we had heard screeching just as rioting was only a mile or so away now. It turned out to be nothing, but scared the shit out of us.
Blake offered to have us come to his house. I had no faith that the night was going to get better. As we were driving up to Duluth we saw multiple posts on Facebook of neighborhoods getting together ready to stop the arsonists. It did make us feel guilty for leaving our neighbors. 
But the kids were happy to get out of the house for the first time in months and they missed Blake.
Visits to Blake and Duluth are always the perfect respite. Because of Covid-19 we hadn't been up sin…
