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.

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
