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.

A Big Old Family 4th and Our First Trip to the Fox Valley and Bay Beach in Forever

We began our 4th of July weekend a little early with a trip to Marshfield, WI. I had to shoot a cable company store and I didn't feel like going back and forth from Wisconsin to Minnesota and then back again. Meadow found something shiny at the bottom of the hotel pool and I went diving for it.  We got to the cottage for the long 4th weekend and I enjoyed some ramen. Because, you know. Chelsea and the kids were already up when we arrived. Theo would play in his turtle all weekend long. Hey Harvey. The cousins were reunited after almost a year. Theo didn't remember who they were. Theo may have not remembered who they were, but he still wanted to hang with the dudes. You can expect something yummy every night when the whole gang shows up. Chelsea served us her famous chicken and wild rice soup on our first night. Then we went on our fist pontoon ride of the week. Gail must bring wine on the boat ride. Oh and animal crackers of course. Not for Gail, but will end up all over the po

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin
