Coronavirus: Week 6

I randomly found bars for our cargo bike on Facebook Marketplace. Pick up was near Crosby Farm in St Paul. I figured we all could use some time in the woods and in a different scenery than our neighborhood.
The parking lot was full but we didn't have any trouble avoiding people. 

We let the kids lead and move at their pace.

Large areas of the forest were still under water from early spring flooding.

Theo has to do whatever Meadow does.

And Brooke has to dow what both of them do.

Meadow found some cool fungi.

Theo didn't' want to leave his new tree house

Theo didn't come out until we had started walking toward the river.


He slowly caught up to us.

Meadow's suddenly super brave.

Meanwhile I worry about her falling in.



After the kids played in the water for a bit we headed back to our car.

Theo continued to take his time.

Meadow didn't want to leave either.

Back at home the kids ate their bagged lunch we never ate and I put on the monkey bars for the cargo bike.

Meadow is super excited for the new bars because she can ride backwards. The bars are kind of expensive new so I was excited to find them at a very reduced price.

It was a steal. Meadow and I went for test ride while Theo napped.

After his nap we all went  for a ride.


We'll see how much Theo likes having Meadow face him the whole time.

Theo's just starting to color.


After school Meadow and I did her PE class.


She's getting a bit higher off the ground

Then we went for father-daughter walk and scooter.


Chelsea called Brittany and me as she was going through her clothes in her closet. She wasn't done yet when dinner started and the kids had to sit next to me so they could watch too.

I finally did something without the family on Wednesday night.


The weather was really nice and was meeting my buddy Nate for a social distance ride.



It did seem like most people were trying to keep their distance.

When we crossed the Stone Arch Bridge we put on our masks. It was a bit more crowded than I'd like.

We ended our ride going the Midtown Greenway and hitting up a few of the lakes. It was nice to see a friend IRL even though we tried keeping true to social distancing.

We picked up tamales and Dairy Queen on our bikes for a treat on Thursday. 

We normally go out to eat frequently (not compared to most people...) but since the safer at home started we've only ordered out twice and have been cooking at home. 


We threw around a little plush football after Meadow finished school for the week.



This is the one time I wish we had a yard, but the kids don't seem to mind.




Then the kids got silly rolling our wagon around the driveway.


I made this doll carrier for Meadow when she was younger but she never liked using it. I convinced Theo to wear it so he could hold his baby and have free hands. 


Whenever I empty the dishwasher, Theo gets really excited and rushes over to help me.

Meadow insisted on making muffins for breakfast.

Thanks Meadow.

This weekend was supposed to be my favorite spring event. The Minneapolis-St Paul Home Tour. Instead we went down streets we haven't been down yet and viewed homes from the outside.


Meadow got tired so I attached the scooter to the bike.

The kids are loving the new monkey bars.


Back at home we rolled around the tires I recently replaced on my bike.

Who needs toys?

We also created our own sport. Think bocce ball with tires.




Right around here the kids got mad at each other.

As what usually happens. Usually it's Meadow getting too close to Theo.

So the kids and I went inside and watched the NFL draft. Go Pack Go.

This week I made a Sunflower Seed Rye.

Brooke's always productive even when the rest of just don't wanna.

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine.

We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation.

Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas. 
I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years. 
Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place.
Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home.

When Scott told me his mom wanted us to clean his grandparents house I …

Honeymoon: Locks, Falls and a Damn Ankle

Once we decided to exit stage Mackinac, we had to decide what to do asap.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone ther…
