Coronavirus: Week 3

Meadow's suddenly a Facetime fanatic.



Brooke's parents were supposed to be here this weekend, but couldn't come up after the stay at home orders were put in place.

Plus Ikea and all the breweries are closed. They're literally nothing for them to do. 

After a cold and rainy weekend the sun finally came out.

Because of the increase in pedestrians Minneapolis closed off some of the parkways to cars. 

It was relatively quiet along the parkway.

Most people still stuck to the trails.


Theo was really digging the sunset.


I totally understand why everyone wants to get out.


This was also Meadow's spring break week. Brooke had to work, but the rest of us tried to have fun.

theo is climbing.

theo is still climbing.

me and theo were climbing on rocks.

We started to bike down the parkway, but it was nuts now that everyone realized that it was closed. We instead found a quiet place to adventure at the nearby peace garden.

Meadow and the neighbor boy played a game called whoosh ball. They also like to chat with each other from 20 feet apart.

Meadow claims its wish ball.

The kids and I have playing all kinds of games on our double wide driveway we share with the neighboring condo. I even swept up all the loose gravel that gets dislodged by our snowplow driver.

Meadow is going to be pro wiffle ball player at the end of this.

i'm not that good at bating.

Meadow didn't want to come with Theo and I on a bike ride. So, just Theo and I went for a ride.


Meadow is not the only one who loves to cook.

Thanks for the breakfast Theo.

I couldn't find Theo and then I heard him giggling. I found him hiding behind our shelf.

So...now they say we should wear masks when in public. Luckily I have materials to make some from home. I started with a child mask for Meadow.

Looking cool and safe.

I continue to make some of our favorites on a nightly basis.

Meadow doesn't really leave the house except to play outside. She still insisted on wearing her mask on our bike ride.

We went for a short ride and then returned home for movie night.

Movie night means popcorn for these kids.

We watched the new release of Onward on Disney+.

Also rearranged our living room this week. 

And Theo went diving for popcorn. The end.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

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
