It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

 

We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood.

This one was pretty creative. 

I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.



Meadow's favorite, a purple tree.


Not sure what is happening here.

It's art, Brooke. Art.

This guy always goes all out for holidays.


Our own mini Bentleyville. Theo did not want to leave.

For gym Meadow had to play board game with her family. Not sure why it was a gym assignment.

Hungry Hungry Hippos is definitely exercise.

It was fun getting to play games with Theo.

Until he spilled his hot cocoa.


We need to do more game nights. We seem to do too many movie nights lately that it doesn't feel special anymore.

We finished with a game of Catan Junior.

Brooke's been really busy, so I took the kids to the lake for some fun.


The lake was frozen by us, but slowly falling to waves a few hundred yards out.

We stuck to the shore and skated around.



If it doesn't snow this could be an awesome giant ice rink.

It took us a while to get down the shore



Always finding lightsabers everywhere.

We ended up at the big bandshell playground.




And then made our way home. It was almost Christmas, even if it didn't look like it.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

The Biggest Maple Tree in Minnesota

On the night before St Patricks Day, Meadow made a leprechaun trap.  Maybe next year Meadow.   Meadow was having a rough morning and needed a hug.  She wanted to play Zelda all day long. The rest of us wanted to go on a hike. We spend so much time getting these kids to get outside and once they are outside they don't want to come back in. Scott chose this weeks hike based off his current love of old growth forests. Wolsfeld Woods SNA just west of the cities in Medina. It's home to the tallest sugar maple in the state.

Winter Camping for Brooke's 29th Birthday - Part 1

All winter we had plans to go winter camping, but because its been so so cold we had to keep putting it off. Scott was supposed to work on my birthday and last minute didn't have to. We decided this would be the perfect time to go before the snow melts.  I think we would've went earlier in the worst winter in recent memory, but a baby and sub-zero temperatures don't exactly mix.
