Sledding on a Saturday


Friday night we went to the mall in hopes of seeing Santa. We made it too late. Meadow would have to write him a letter instead. She asked for a white dress like the one Elsa wears in Frozen 2 and a crinkle cutter for Theo.

Meadow would eat waffles for every meal if she could.

I added some Christmas sprinkles for Meadow.

Ever since we did it for her birthday last year she requests it.

Sprinkles, that is.

We got a nice snowfall, it was finally time to go sledding.

I thought we could go over to Lyndale Park to get a Christmas card picture, but Brooke's super particular. So, it ended up being just a good time sledding.

Theo has mixed feelings about sledding.

Meadow brought her new snowboard along.

We went thrifting on Black Friday. The store had everything for half off so it was only $1.50.



At first she was falling down.


I gave the snowboard a try too.

I thought it'd be busy, but only one other family was with us.

Most folks sled behind the Wirth house just down the block. This hills a lot tamer.



Brooke apparently has real snowboarding down even though she stinks at Wii Fit snowboarding.

I did tumble on the more packed down areas. The other little boy here was way better.




Eventually Meadow got the snowboard down.





We bribed Meadow into coming home with hot chocolate.

While Theo napped I started piecing together my pattern for the backpack.

We played with legos while Brooke was busy.

We ended the night watching Home Alone.

Meadow didn't want to watch it initially, then she said it was her favorite movie.

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.
