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.

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.
