Blake's Back and Meadow's a Girl Scout Daisy

Blake's like a union leader or something. It takes him to Minneapolis from time to time.

He flew back from Dallas and decided to stay for the weekend before heading back to Duluth.

We decided to go to the Midtown Global Market in hopes of getting beer and food. The brewery was packed for a Twins game, so we just got food.


Blake dined at Meadow's restaurant and I overheard him saying this was the worst service ever and that he was going to give his review on Yelp.

 All we had in our house for breakfast was oatmeal. I suggested we try Mystic Lake Casino for their champagne brunch. 

 I remembered it being as good as Black Bear, but the last time I was here was when Theo was 3 weeks old.

That was not true. No place compares to Black Bear's breakfast buffet.

 While Theo napped Blake, Meadow and I went to the Baaken Museum. Any time there's crafts, Meadow will be there.

 Meadow and Blake had fun hooking up the electricity for old Minneapolis.



We played around in the garden before heading home. 

Back at home we did some Cosmic Kids with Meadow.


Brooke went out with friends and the rest of us watched the boob tube. Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse now that I remember. It was so good.

Meadow read that if you cut an apple in half you have a star.

A few days later we had a Girl Scout get together at the Peace Garden.

Mr. Theo has to walk and read as usual.



We had gotten word that there was a girl scout ceremony at the park like the day before.

We knew there was a ceremony for the 2nd graders, but Meadow accidentally got involved with it.


Theo was excited for the ceremony.

It was supposed to be a bridging ceremony for the Daisy's to become Brownies. Meadow is still a Daisy this year.

After the ceremony there was a potluck and pizza.

And cake.


Meadow sat with her friends. 

Sadly we left these cookies behind.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
