Bobilikin Woods and a Bike Ride

 

It's been warmer out so Theo and I have started going on adventures everyday.

I've been playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild on our Nintendo Switch and Theo loves watching the game. I talked him into going to the woods near our house by calling it the Bobilikin Woods (actually bokoblin, but that's how he says it). Theo was instantly excited with the prospect of destroying some goblins in the woods.

He brought along a Duplo as his Sheikah Slate. Just like Link.

He loves to pretend to be Link everyday since he got his sword and shield. 

Theo walked all the way across Lyndale Park and over to the bird sancturary.


In his element. 

When we got home he fell asleep on the couch. He was pooped.

The next day we went back out again.


This rock became a mysterious shrine.

While Theo was hunting for bobilikins it was the perfect excuse to travel some of the trails that had been created through the bird sanctuaries marsh and ponds.


Many bobilikins were destroyed and the korok woods was found at last. It was fun.


You think you're ready to go home and then he finds some rocks in the neighboring Peace Garden to climb.




Meadow hasn't been as into reading as she used to be. But she still gets excited to go on our trips to the library. She mentioned there was an illustrated version of the Harry Potter series. She still isn't confident in reading books without pictures.

Been then she started to blaze through this version.

Theo also prefers picture books.

It was finally above 20 degrees and even reached 40. With the streets cleared of snow and ice it was time for a bike ride.

Theo wanted to bring his master sword along for the ride.

We had no real plan on which route to take and meandered through neighborhoods. 

The kids spotted a playground but it was mostly under melted snow. Meadow fell out of this twisty globe into a deep puddle so it was time to go home.

Whoops.


She was soaked from the fall, but was tough all the way home.

After going through our old files I went through our drawer of old film photos. That's when I remembered a bin with more photos. I plan to put all these into albums. It's a big project so I'll probably do one a winter season.

Brooke was so cool. Ha.

We ended the night watching the new Tom and Jerry movie. Meadow drew the characters while watching.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
