A Late Fall Bike Ride

We needed to go grocery shopping, but luckily we had some pancake mix leftover from our camping days.

We used our Nordic Ware pancake pans that feature funny shapes. You might be able to spot an emoji or three.

Meadow cleaned the living room so she could watch tv. She did this without asking, which was sweet, but we had plans.

Today was supposed to be in the 40's. I figured this was our last day to get in a bike ride. By the time Snow White got ready, we were ready to go.

I thought Brooke was crazy wanting to ride bikes, but I wasn't going to get any rides in any time soon.

When the sun came out it felt warm.

We decided to bike over to Minnehaha Falls and hike around there.

We made it all the way to falls and temp suddenly dropped.


It was a lot colder at this point and we were now ready for lunch.

We let the kids play first.

I let the kids play and Brooke begrudgingly agreed.



Poor little brother.

She would not stop.


Has to do everything Meadow does.

We decided to eat at Fat Lorenzo's and headed that way.

Meadow was ready for some 'za.

Theo suddenly decided he was too big for the high chair.

We drew pictures while waiting for our pizza pie.


I forgot how good their pizza is.

Big floppy crust is so underrated these days.

I had originally thought we'd bike over to St. Paul and get some ice cream over at Izzy's, but we never made it there. Meadow was sad about that, so she got some super chocolaty gelato at Fat Lorenzo's.

We headed back just before dark and watched Wreck It Ralph on Disney +.

Not a bad Fall day.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
