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.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
