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.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

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

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.
