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.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c
