Cedar Lake Trail Detours and Sculpture Garden Stop

 

The kids asked for Big Pancake for breakfast. I usually eat mine with eggs and spinach and bacon. After seeing mine Theo wanted some poached eggs too.

Meadow turned another one of my old pants into a hoodie for tiger. She's never finished with her crafting.

I asked Meadow if she wanted to go hiking or biking today and she chose biking.
 
 
We got to check out the new trail bridge being built. So happy not to have to cross the road anymore.

Brooke works just outside of Minneapolis along the Cedar Lake Trail. It's getting rebuilt as a part of the Green Line light rail extension.

We were biking along the road when we saw all these phones mounted to a noise wall.

Not too far up the trail someone had added this swing.



I had to give it a go too.

Oh hey check out my new bike bag the fam gave to me for my birthday.



It was big enough for the kids and I.

Theo has decided he's too big for the bike seat, but not too big to still poop in diapers.

He loves hiding and then pooping in diapers. It's like you know when you have to go. Let's just use the freaking toilet.

We meandered through St. Louis Park after deciding not to cross MN 100.

We ended up on the North Cedar Lake Trail. I know. I'm not sure why they thought it would be a good idea to name to trails almost the same thing.

Along the trail we stumbled upon this fire pit hill by Cedar Lake. Somehow we never knew this existed.

This is one of my favorite places to bike in the cities. This was once a massive rail yard. Now just a few lines come through here including the upcoming light rail extension.

We just so happened to be near the Sculpture Garden.

It's no Franconia, but the kids love it.

We had just watched the 4 hour Justice League movie yesterday, so the kids had to dress like Batman and Wonder Woman today.

Just for the record we really enjoyed the Snyder Cut. Never saw the theatrical release.


We love you too, Theo.

Theo wanted to point to all of the sculptures on this display.

He even remembers the Spoon and Cherry from his Minnesota counting book.


Then we walked up the big zig-zag trail on our way out.


They didn't want to leave quite yet.

Meadow hitched a ride on the cargo so I took Theo on my bike. He was not thrilled and screamed for the next 20 minutes.

It was not fun.

Back home and pooped from the bike ride I wanted to pick something up. So we got Sotarol.

This sums up Theo's love for sushi.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

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
