May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

 Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.

 It was nice with no one here.




Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.

Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.

Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.


Of course she needed to. 


 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.

 She even cleaned up after herself.

 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random pavers to hold up our garden.

 Theo was inspired by Meadow to make his own mug cake.

 Our table is finally ready to use again.

Good job, Brooke.

 Silly Theo.

The kids love stealing my phone to take photos. I like when I find good ones. 

Theo and I went on a bike ride while Meadow had school. We found a new favorite place to play this summer.

Theo wished we had brought a real fishing pole.

I got these Bundt mug cake molds for the kids to use in the sandbox or in their play kitchen. I guess they wanted to use them for what they're actually made for.

Oh, just another morning. Brooke got productive. And then Theo would inevitably knock it all down.

Swings everyday.

Every, single day.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
