Smartphone Thanksgiving

After getting to St. Paul I realized that I forgot my camera. I would've just skipped this post and enjoyed Thanksgiving, but Brooke insists on having a blog for every week. Even if she never shares any of the posts. Ha. It's all about the memories, not the followers.  That's what a journal is for...

Duluth for Christmas Parade of the North & More

One of my coworkers always comes up to Duluth for their Christmas parade and Bentleyville opening. I said we should check it out this year.  We arrived in Duluth a little earlier than expected so we stopped for dinner at Duluth Grill.

A Late Fall Bike Ride

Good prices and the crowds are nonexistent. The kids each picked a little pumpkin. Meadow need a circle. Theo was the perfect paper weight. Theo has been obsessed with jack o lanterns. Every time he sees one he wants to go by it and look at it. It's starting to get to me, but it's so cute. This is the first weekend in a long time where we aren't going anywhere, we don't have any guests and no plans. We asked Meadow what she wanted to to do this weekend and she said take the light rail.  So a ride on the light rail we did. Theo looks like he likes the ride, but he wouldn't sit still. He kept wanting to walk around. It's a long ride. Can't blame him. Since we were going on the light rail we decided to g
