Brooke Takes the Kids to WIsco/ Scott Works and Plays Back Home

Scott had to work and Cevonne was in Wisconsin. So this time I took the kids to see family solo.

Good morning Theodore!

Always sleeping in.


 When back home we have to go to Bay Beach. What was going to be just me and the kids turned into my whole family coming along.

Home? Brooke always makes fun of me for calling Milwaukee home. Ha.







This year there is a new ferris wheel. Still only .75 to ride. 


Theo loved that he could go on the rides too.

Jello.

Even by himself.

Meadow and Marina rode on the slide together like 8 times in a row.




Theo didn't like that I went on rides without him.

Meadow was too scared for the big ferris wheel but eventually gave in.


Meadow begged to go on the playground, so before leaving I said she could.


Back at home I was meeting up with my old buddies Danny and Davin.

First I had to bike across the city.





Nicollet Mall on a summer early evening is so great.


My dad had tickets to use up, one last ride with all the cousins.

Then we stopped for dinner at Zesty's.

I met up at Indeed Brewing and managed to order a beer for Davin that he liked. He's not a beer guy, but loved Indeed's Mexican Honey. I loved their new version Mexican Honey Light.

We moved over to Centro for margaritas.


This place is good.


Then I had to bike late night back through the city.

Chelsea and Dan had gone out to Mile of Music so the boys sleptover. The kids all tried to sleep in one room, but Meadow said they talked too much and came into bed with me.


My dad taught Meadow how to do archery.

Cevonne's flight was cancelled and delayed so we went over to Chelsea's to play.

Still not sure about other people holding him.





Nolan's fairy garden is looking a little Halloweenish.

Then we decided to bike to Tom's for ice cream.


I went for a bike ride every night the fam was away. I'd basically edit on my computer for 12 hours and then have fun at night.





The next morning we biked to Seth's Coffee to finally see Cevonne. While biking I heard the shutter noise. Theo was taking selfies.


He was not having it when we arrived.

They haven't seen each other in 2 years, but were old friends again. Meadow still thinks Madeline is her cousin.

They're cousins of sorts.

This place is good. I don't know why I don't go here more.

We said our quick goodbyes. Somehow I didn't get any photos of Cevonne. I swear she was there.

The kids had these sequin pillows that Meadow had to have too. We walked over to the new Dollar Store to get one.


 On our way out we met up with Amanda and her girls for lunch at Culver's.



We'll be back next summer.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
