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.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

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

With Fall Comes Apples

  Brooke decided to make breakfast for herself. I wanted some OJ, so I poured her a glass too. Bland oatmeal is just what I needed. Scott said he was going to call his mom. My aunt got back to me about attending our wedding. She was going to have foot surgery and couldn't travel. Sometimes I wish all my family lived in one area like Brooke's. I had to tell my mom. The night before I had my bridal shower/bachelorette at my house with my Twin Cities ladies. We had dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's later that night.  I was able to finish cleaning up before Scott got off the phone. My mom and I tend to talk a lot. I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
