Kite Fest 2020

The kids like getting up early these days. And by early I mean 8:00. Theo has also decided he's suddenly too big for his high chair.

Isn't that late for you? For me that's way too early.

After Meadow broke her glasses ice skating last week we ordered her two new pairs so she'd have a backup. We had to expedite the order and they arrived today.

Needed those glasses before our trip to Mexico City.

Hey look who decided to match their dad!

Today was the Winter Kite Festival. 



Along the way the kiddos insisted on eating all the snow.


One child prefers to be pulled by the sled while the other prefers to walk on his own.

You two have this backward.

We met up with Shannyn, Brent and the kids.

This giant bright orange fox was a new addition this year.

Eleanor loves little Theo, but he just wants his space.

The parents flew kites while the kids played with the sled.

And picked on Theo.

We had already ate, but Brent and Shannyn got some tacos.

We figured we'd be getting enough of those soon.

Then we parted ways and headed back home.

Brooke insisted we cross the lake on the way back.

I like watching all the kites.

Meadow wanted to stay outside.

After dinner we took a trip to the American Mall to find shoes only to come back empty handed.

She's very indecisive. Maybe we'll get some cool shoes down in CDMX.

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
