Out to Eat in the Summer of Covid-19


Meadow requested Black Sheep Pizza for dinner. Her favorite. We ordered for pickup and headed over there on our bikes.

The location closest to us had been closed ever since coronavirus.

We ate over nearby MCAD.

We were stoked to be eating our favorite pizza again.

We like to eat out but honestly I don't really miss going to a restaurant. I don't feel like I need to have someone serve me. We've been enjoying getting the food for takeout and having picnics instead.

It's not bad at all. I do still miss bars and breweries.

The kids chased butterflies.

We decided to get a treat at the Michoacana store in uptown.

The kids both choose bubblegum. We got fruity Mexican popsicles. Glad these are catching on in the states. We were obsessed with them in Mexico.

Then we biked back around Bde Maka Ska and Lake Harriet.

We hadn't had donuts from Bogarts in a long time, so, Saturday morning we took a walk over.

They have a really great system. You choose your donut from the window and even pay with a card reader attached to the window. Then someone brings them out for you.

My Nutella donut was very large and messy.

Yum.


When you lag behind big sister will come get you.

One of the free libraries had a bin of free games. Meadow chose Don't Break the Ice.

For some reason dinner never got made. Sorry. So, we ate at Bread & Pickle instead.

Theo just likes the french fries.

Well, for the second time this summer they never made his grilled cheese or they can't hear me through my cloth mask. Probably the later.

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
