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 Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

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

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
