Farmer's Market and Light Rail Fall Fun

We had to make it to the farmers market for one last trip this year. It's sad no one really goes anymore, but at least there's easy parking.

The last visit is often one of the best. 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 go to the children's museum. We hadn't been in a while. 

We forgot how buys it gets on weekends.

The best time to go is on a Friday or Saturday after 5. Everyone starts to clear out.


Oh yeah, I cut my hair.

It's really cute on her.

Theo loved the four and under room.

Meadow and Brooke went down the slides while we stayed back.

We'll have to take him back again on his own.

He did not want a bib. Goof.

Meadow's favorite is the rock climbing area.

You get to be featured on a big TV.

Theo likes the water exhibits.


I was getting hungry, so we made our way out of the museum.

It was late and we we never had lunch. Of course we had to go to Mickey's Diner next door. The booths were all full so we sat at the counter. Meadow later told me she liked sitting here better so she could watch the cook.

I'm with you Meadow.

Theo was an old pro at the counter.

The cook was impressed by our well behaved children. They get a lot of the Children's Museum crowd.


That's me digging in and making sure Theo doesn't knock down our shake.

I'd never ordered their fried chicken. It was crispy and juicy. 10/10 I'd order it again.

Then back on the light rail.

Notice Theo not sitting next to me.

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.
