Meadow @ 7 Years

Meadow loves to read books, swing, do art and crafts, watch tv, play dress up, play video games.


She's good at math, way better at it than I was at her age.


She's still a little shy, but shows her personality once you get to know her.


She has her favorite foods and has been more open to trying new things.

She only wears and costumes. Costumes would be her main wardrobe if she could.


She's still a night owl sometimes going to bed after we do. Some days she wakes up at 7am and other days she'll sleep until 10am.

Here are Meadow's answers this year.

Meadow Turns 7

Since there is no birthday party this year we let Meadow open her first present right away.
My baby is all grown up. She was so excited to get Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Meadow has also requested an ice cream cake after her cousin Marina got one for her birthday. We had plans to pick one up at Dairy Queen when we remembered Sebastian Joe's has cakes. 
This was much better than a lowly Dairy Queen Cake. Meadow choose the Nicollet Avenue Pothole Cake. That was one decadent ice cream cake.
It was so rich, but we still finished it in 2 days. 


After her cake we let her open more presents. She got a new reversible dress from my parents.

She's wearing it in this pic.

We also got her her own headphones to use in the car. Her last gift of the day was what she has been asking for since Christmas. Walkie talkies. Apparently we've reached the age where she wants electronics and clothes instead of toys.

We went over to Lake Harriet to give the walkie talkies a try and explore Mead…

Finally, At the Cottage

We finally made a trip to the cottage. Normally we stop to eat somewhere on the way. Instead we packed food and had a picnic instead.
We usually stop in Ladysmith, but decided to try this park in Bruce.

We'd always wanted to stop. No better time than during a pandemic, I suppose.
After we ate we let the kids play on the playground.

Couldn't ask for much more out of a playground.

We arrived just as the sun was setting. As soon as we stepped out of the car and smelled the woods it felt good to be out of our little condo.

Nearly six months is way too long to be away from the cottage. If everyone was simply cognizant that visiting their cottages should mean that they stay out of bars and grocery stores, this wouldn't have been necessary. We brought our groceries along and stuck to the lakes and our land.
The next day called for rain. Meadow and I woke up "early" and headed for the water right away.
Theo and I came out to see the ladies already swimming. Well, Theo burro…
