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.

Then 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.

Oh yeah, I cut off a lot of my hair. 
 
Still really good looking. Ha.

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.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

Pizza Farm, Another Waterfall and Two Wild and Crazy Guys Come to Minneapolis

 I've been wanting to check out this pizza farm in Northfield for a few years now. They are only open on Wednesday's and every 3rd Sunday. It just never worked with our schedules to go. When deciding what to do for dinner I remembered they had just opened for the season again.  Got a phone update and didn't want to make dinner. So, Red Barn Farm seemed like a good choice. Finally Brooke checked this off her list.    They have tables but you are free to sit anywhere you want on the lawn too.   It was the perfect day to enjoy the lawn.   They supply the pizza and you have to bring everything else, including dinnerware. They do have a small shop with a couple sodas for sale, otherwise its BYOB. The pizza is the wood fired variety that's oh-so-popular these day. Not complaining, it's good. Scott thought the pizza was average but it was delicious.  No, I didn't think it was average. It's just run-of-the-mill these days. Would go back. The kids were excited

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo
