Meadow Learns to Skateboard and We Go Camping with Friends

While at my parents we took home my old skateboard. After picking up some knee pads for Meadow she was ready to learn.

Look at this cool dudette.

Theo too.


She suddenly gets "tired" and has to go to the playground instead.


We went over to Meadow's school playground a lot at the end of summer. It's even closer than the park down the street.


Showoff.


Every summer we try to get a camping trip in with Brent and Shannyn. This year we went to the Sand Dunes State Forest. They arrived early and scored us a spot.

Brent's always gets the fire going and brings his epic camp setup.


They also made us dinner.



These kids were getting pretty crazy on the hammocks.





Kid loves corn. I cut it up for him first, but he insisted on eating off the cob.

He knows that corn ON the cob is the only way.

Theo always finds trucks to play with.

These two always have such a good time.



We don't generally do fires when we camp. Meadow was loving that she got to have s'mores.

It's our biggest camping faux pas.





We were going to sit around the fire together, but the kids didn't want to go to bed. 

The next morning the forecast called for rain all day so we ended our trip early.

Sigh.

Oatmeal cups for us.



Since it was early we decided to head to the Minneapolis Farmers Market.

Still our favorite place to go to on a Sunday in Minneapolis.

Anytime there's balloon animals Meadow has to get one.

Well, duh.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Donut Sundaes, Farmers Market Sundays and Canoeing Lake Harriet on a Sunday

We're trying to enjoy our last few weeks in our condo and the neighborhood. We have been going for daily walks, to the park mostly.   We will miss the park so much.   I saw on Instagram that Bogart's now has donut sundaes. We convinced the kids to leave their kickball game to go get some.    Also loving our new blender.    Thanks basement store. Not our neighborhood but one last trip to the farmer's market for the season. With our busy summer we barely made it out this year. There's nothing better than a farmers market visit. The house around the corner from our condo was having a rummage sale. We were hoping for the toy chest for Meadow's costumes but it was already sold. As much as Scott hates it we had to get one more canoe ride in.    I like canoeing. I don't love lugging it to the lake on a cart. This time it wasn't windy so we could go all the way around the lake.  Theo tried fishing to pass time.   Can't believe it took us nearly four years t

Florida or Bust: Alligators in the Swimming Hole, A Plantation Home, Memphis BBQ, Frozen Custard and an Arch in St. Louis, Mark Twains Home and Some Frank Lloyd Wright for Good Measure

Day 13 Another morning another new campsite. This time we drove back into Mississippi to Clear Springs campground in the Homochitto National Forest as we are taking US 61 back north. I tried to pretend I was sleeping. The little one knew better than that.
