Pizza and Picasso Tiles

For Christmas Scott received Picasso tiles and they've been a hit with our family.

I played with these quite a bit at Brooke's sisters house. Funny thing is that these kids have been mostly playing with them. That's OK with me.

Since we got back from winter break the kids have been playing with their toys a lot more.

Meadow's way more creative than me.

I spent the majority of the day working on my backpack. It's turning out to be easier than I thought. 

And another masterpiece. She has us send pics to Blake each time she builds something.

Sorry little brother, you can't touch it.

It is OK for you to go in the cardboard car, buddy.

We were having Aaron and the kids over, but he had been held up a bit. So, we turned on the game and Meadow took a picture.

We were supposed to have our annual Indian Turkey dinner, but the turkey hadn't defrosted in time. Instead we had Scott's famous homemade pizza. We've been hosting dinners a lot lately. 

Little buddy was excited to have a guests.

We're so busy in summer that the winter months are nice to catch up with friends. 
Aaron even brought a vegan cake for dessert.

The kiddos played like maniacs all night long. It was great having Aaron over. We'll have to do it again soon.

The Women Take the Kids Camping to William O'Brien State Park

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

Duluth For The Day

 After work I decided to drive up to Duluth to visit my little brother Blake. Scott would have come with me if he didn't have to work. Like most streets in Duluth he lives on a steep hill. I couldn't remember how to park on a hill so I copied the car in front of me.   He gave me a tour of his house and when we were in his backyard I heard rushing water. There was a trail and some woods that we followed down a hill to Chester Creek. I had no idea he lived so close to a park.   Or a waterfall.     We walked a ways to find an old ski jump. Blake said he climbed it when he first moved here and a month later the city took the stairs down.   The ski lift is still in use for sledding.  Walking back to his house we passed another ski jump. Back when this was first built it was the tallest in the world. During World War II 50 feet was taken off the top to give to the war effort.  The reason I came to visit Blake was mainly
