Theo Turns 3 and the Kids Don't Want to Go Outside

Our little guy has turned 3. Showing how old you are with your fingers can be tricky.

He's been working on it all week.

Of course he got his favorite foods today. PB&J for lunch.

Once Meadow got home from school we let him open his gifts. I got him some waterproof mittens which weren't very exciting to open. 

Meadow and I picked him up a foam sword and shield that almost looks like the master sword from Zelda.

This was way more exciting.

They picked out the perfect gift for him. He has been using Meadow's sword or sticks and making his own shield out of found objects.

Now the kids can choose between lightsabers and swords.

We loved Meadow's ice cream cake so we had to get one for Theo too.

From Sebastian Joe's if you don't know. Meadow had a Nicollet Pothole Cake. For Theo's birthday we tried the oreo one.

He needed help blowing out his candles.

The cake was basically a fancier version of the classic Dairy Queen Cake. If I had a choice I'd pick the Nicollet Pothole cake next time.

Meadow is the lucky kid who gets birthday parties every year whereas Theo's are a little more low key. This year we decided to do a private theater rental. Movie theaters are offering private rentals at a discount to get more people to visit so we took advantage of that deal. 

Theo doesn't have any kids his age in our friend circle, so small affairs are the norm.

Theo has never been to a movie before so this was a perfect first experience. He kept changing seats throughout the movie.

                You could choose from older movies or newer movies. We went with Lego Batman.

It was fun and the movie was just as good the second time.



Video games have taken over our household.

I tried getting us outside, but Brooke was still crabby from Meadow not wanting to go ice skating.

No, it was three times that I was turned down for different outdoor adventures.

I've given up getting upset about it and instead found plenty of projects to do. 

Today was going through our old files. We had been hanging onto old tax paperwork for the last 10 years.

Meadow and I recently bought a crystal sun-catcher for the front and our bedroom. A simple way to add joy with little rainbows in your room.

Theo is dressing up as Batman or Link every day.

After taking a break from video games, Meadow decided to make a time capsule. She wants to save it so she can show her kids what life was like during COVID-19. Once we are done wearing masks she's going to add her favorite one.

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.
