Mother's Day Brews and Bike Ride

 

The kids wanted waffles for breakfast. I thought I'd up the deliciousness with some ice cream. 
 
This was a bit extreme for my tastes. At least for breakfast.
 
A mother's day gift to myself. I got my haircut a couple days ago. 

It has been a year and a half since my last haircut and I was ready for something different.

 
Still really good looking. Ha.
 
 

Meadow surprised me with a gift of things she made at school.

Beautiful, Meadow!

We really didn't have any plans for the day. 

Meadow decided it was the perfect chance to play some Switch.

We have small closets in our place so we have to switch out our clothes seasonally. I started with Theo's clothes. 
 
Eventually everything was switched out and a few tears were shed for clothing that no longer fits.

Cool kids. 

It was a nice day so we went out for a bike ride to a new to us brewery. 

I'd recently stopped by Wild Minds for the first time. They specialize in sour and wild beers, but they also have good saisons and IPAs, which are more up our alleys.

The kids had to settle on LaCroix.

This was a nice space, I don't know how we never made it here before. 

I thought we could treat the kids to some fries. We liked them so much that we got a second basket. We must have been getting hungry.

 


Meadow and Theo were bored and played with our phones. And for some reason Meadow called Blake on FaceTime.
 
We decided after we left to go to a brewery so I didn't bring any games or toys for them. 



We were still hungry so we stopped to get some BBQ. 
 
The BBQ at QFanatic must have been good because I forgot to take a picture.

It ended up being a less than boring Mother's Day after all.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
