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.

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

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 l

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
