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.

A Duluth Cabin for Brooke's 35th

Meadow has added her commentary. Hers will be in bold. 
For those who don't remember, Scottie = Italics & Brooke = plain jane.
As tradition we stayed at a cabin for my birthday weekend. This year I found a place on Hipcamp that happened to be in Duluth.

Mexico 2020 - CDMX - Hipódromo

Day 1 After saving up for a few years we were finally ready to take a real family vacation. Our original plan was to rent a camper van in San Diego and drive down into Baja California. When we couldn't find any rental places that allow you to cross the border we decided on Mexico City.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.  Scott braved the swarm of bugs to read what the sign said.

We thought about dispersed camping. This basically means you camp wherever you'd like, but leave no trace. This is only allowed in state and national forests.The bugs were ferocious, so we rethought this plan.

And we needed to be near a bathroom. 

Sand Dunes State Forest (as well as many other SFs) also has designated camping. We found a spot we liked and walked in to our site.

 While unpacking our gear we found candy. Scott was pretty excited. We couldn't figure out why it was i…
