Red Wing 4 Shoes

I was supposed to go to Lake City this weekend to shoot some fall 360s for their tourism board. We were going to stay at a hotel and then go to the Red Wing shoe sale after. The leaves weren't changing colors, so we ended up just making plans to go to Red Wing.

I needed new boots and Scott said I couldn't get the ones from Target because they'll fall apart. Meadow's eating a donut?

I suppose she is. Now that I think about these were from Lindstrom. I had picked some donuts at their famed bakery.

Theo's sad he didn't get a donut?

I'm sure he got some sweets.

Before we could go we had to change out our summer for our winter clothing.

We have one small closet that Scott and I share so we trade out clothes seasonally. All my sweaters and long underwear were in our winter clothing bin.

I'm knitting Theo a sweater for Christmas. Luckily he won't remember that I had to try it on him to make sure it's fitting.

Meadow's happy because she graduated from the 5-point harness to using a regular seat belt.

When we got there the line was much longer than last year. Every few people leaving were warning that pickings were slim.

I didn't find anything except a pair of winter hiking boots, which Brooke thought were hideous.

They didn't have my first two choices. I ended up finding these in the men's section. Scott's embarrassed because they're the same pair he got last year. 

They are nice looking I suppose.

Afterwards we decided to check out Red Wing Brewery for pizza and brewskis.

Apparently this is where everyone goes after the shoe sale.

I mean craft beer + Red Wing Boots = hipsters heaven.



Everyone here under 40 was wearing Red Wing boots and red flannel.

Meadow got her house brewed root beer.

 The beef and horseradish  pizza was killer and the beer was good. Probably come back just for the pizza that uses the spent grains from the brewing process.

Definitely coming back.

We talked about going apple picking again. Our trip to the boot sale took a lot longer than planned. Luckily we passed a sign for a farm selling apples.

We nearly ran out of gas, but we ended up with a bunch of apples.

We made one last stop before heading home to get things for our Halloween costumes. Can you guess what we're going to be?

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.

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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
