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.

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding. I had to keep one tradition. I woke up early to meet Brooke's dad at the Theodore Wirth Picnic Pavilion, only to find out that he was meeting me a couple hours later. I ended up getting most of the decorations over to the venue with my dad, sister and Dennis.  Scott had texted me in the morning, "I'm supposed to merry your dad right now right?". I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Mankato's Minneopa Waterfalls and Bison in Spring

  Another weekend, another hiking trip. This time Minneopa State Park. We started with the Hiking Club Trail . The Hiking Club is a great way to get the kids excited about our hikes. Rather than just going out for a hike they're searching for the secret password along the trail.   Where there's rocks Meadow will climb. 

An End of Spring Break Visit to the Three Lakes Cottage

Meadow's on spring break so a trip to the cottage it is. The weekend called for rain, rain, rain but we don't care.   We all brought along our rain suits just in case it never let up. Even with just a drizzle Theo put on his suit right away. I think this is the earliest I've seen the ice off the lake. Should have brought our swimsuits. Brooke used to always be the first one swimming as a kid. Maybe Meadow, Brooke and Theo can keep that tradition alive. Me? Probably not. Theo must think his rain suit is completely waterproof. He went well past his boots.
