Hike Trip with the Kids to Nerstrand State Park

Meadow and I had so much fun hiking and geocaching last weekend, we decided to do it again.

I was busy photographing for a project in Lake City.

Our state park pass expires at the end of the month so we decided on Nerstrand State Park. A short drive from Minneapolis I'd always wanted to go. 

I love that they had this natural playground.

First we wanted to see the waterfall.


Little hiker.


The waterfall was a lot smaller than I expected but it was open for free play.

I let the kids play for awhile.

Then we found another area to play.


Mr Independent had to hike back himself.

That's my stubborn little guy.

We took a lunch break before geocaching. 

Meadow didn't believe me she had smoothie on her face.

Theo either.



We finished our day by hiking almost the whole park to find the cache. Too bad Scott couldn't have joined us.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t
