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.

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

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
